Manure Removal

The weather this year has been.... WET. All the rain has caused a few projects to be delayed. Thankfully, we have been blessed with some dry days and the guys are working long hours to catch up on all the projects. From hay baling to manure removal, it's been a long summer. 

This week Lutmer Farms, LLC, started the manure removal project at Knollman Dressage. One of our great hay customers, Rebecca Knollman of Knollman Dressage, Inc. is working with Lutmer Farms, LLC to remove her manure pile. With the right equipment and dedicated employees, Lutmer Farms, LLC is helping Knollman Dressage say goodbye to their manure pile! 

Ham, Mozzarella, and Basil Panini

With all the crazy things going on this summer, it is helpful to have a quick and easy meal during the weeknight. Last night, we had ham, mozzarella and basil paninis. I found a recipe online that called for ciabatta bread, but I substituted sourdough bread instead. And, it was pretty delicious. It was nice to utilize a few leaves off of our basil plant!  

1/2 lb         Low Sodium Ham
1/2 lb         Mozzarella Cheese
12 leaves    Basil
2 tbsp         Dijon Mustard
2 tbsp         Balsamic Vinegar
                  Sourdough Bread

  1. Start by heating your panini press, or utlize a skillet. (We have a George Forman Grill that has panini plates.)
  2. Place the dijon mustard on the bottom slice of bread.
  3. Brush the balsamic vinegar on the top slice of bread. 
  4. Add a slice of ham to the top and bottom slices of bread. 
  5. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese and a few basil leaves to the bottom slice of bread. 
  6. Place the top slice over the bottom slice. 
  7. Place the sandwich into the panini press or skillet. 

It's pretty simple and it tastes great! Perfect for a quick, easy and healthy weeknight meal. We utilized Farmhouse Hearty Sliced Sourdough Bread. Myfitnesspal estimates the calories for a sandwich at 391 calories. Not too shabby!
