1. i never thought about this before last night, but apparently some anonymous people (freshman!) don't know how to make a panini. like, they actually get confused about the process of assembling one. in fact, a really nice freshman recently told me, "seriously, i just don't get it. can you post step by step instructions? i'm really lost."
so i guess here's an answer: do not attempt fancy tortilla folds or panini bundles, or whatever else is possible. just get a big white lavash, put stuff on top, and fold it in half. the end.
2. grill your onions on top of your panini with whatever sauce you used inside the panini or with balsamic vinegar and olive oil or honey or butter. just do it. please.
