The Panini Sandwich

"Panini," in Italian, means "sandwiches." Plural form. More than one. 
Imagine how tickled I was when my mother told me she had seen menus in the US offering a: 
"Panini Sandwich"! 

A sandwiches sandwich? My favorite kind!

My husband bought three long baguettes at the bakery 
- yes, we bought French bread in Italy, we are just SO international, aren't we? - 
and decided to make sandwiches for himself and the boys.

Let's see, what do we have in the refridgerator? 
A few tomatoes, a little mayo, a layer of ham . . .

Add on some sliced provolone . . .

Some more mayo and a few pickles for a finishing touch . . .

. . . and, presto, lunch is served!
