Here's what he made:
- Boneless chicken breasts, marinated (lemon-rosemary marinade by me, rosemary picked by Nick) and grilled on the panini grill
- Grilled zucchini and a portobello mushroom (for Mariah), also on the panini grill
- Cheese sauce (a very light bechamel with some cheese whisked in). I helped, though I misjudged amounts a bit and we ended up with a lot left over.
Nick likes meals with options: you could eat everything separately, everything altogether, or any combination thereof. I ended up cutting up my chicken and zucchini and tossing it with cheese sauce over linguine, and it was mighty tasty.
The panini grill is a great way for a kid to make a meal, I've decided. It's almost foolproof, puts neat grill marks on the food, and is easy to clean up. Everyone was delighted with the meal-- especially Mariah, who skipped the cheese sauce and chicken to make her meal vegan.
