Pretty buns all in a row...

OK, I admit it. I'm obsessed with buns, specifically these whole wheat beauties. I think mostly I'm just still so proud of myself for creating them from scratch. Like a new mom, I am. Beaming down at them as I tenderly wrap them in their saran wrap blankies, readying them for the freezer.

Ok. I'll stop now. Now I'm just sounding ready for the loony bin.

I used them for tonight's panini (which apparently is another food item I'm prone to obsessing over.) I had some leftover thinly sliced chicken breast that I needed to use and as I brainstormed this afternoon, I remembered that hubby really likes this tai peanut butter chicken I make. Hmmm... would this be able to be worked into a panini? Indeed it would. The components of the grilled sandwich also included provolone cheese, roasted red pepper slices (from a jar,) and cabbage, carrot, broccoli and green onion slaw tossed with the dressing below. YUM!

Tai Peanut Butter Slaw Dressing

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp Splenda (3 packets) or you could use regular sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp hot water
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
1 Tbsp light soy sauce
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Add all above items to a bowl and stir thoroughly to combine. (Sometimes I microwave for a few seconds to help melt the peanut butter a bit)
