(4) Sun Jul 24 2005 14:47 PST Waffle Iron Panini: Riana came over and I made tomato soup for lunch. I planned to make grilled cheese sandwiches too. Sumana suggested the idea of grilling the sandwiches in the waffle iron. It worked out really well. Some waffle irons let you switch out the places for a special panini plate, but why bother? It works just as well with a regular waffle iron and it looks a lot more interesting.
