Speaking of bricks, I haven't made a pressed Cuban in a while.
I'm probably the only one here who actually has a brick nearby, lol.

We have just been out for a lovely walk...it is nice and dark out, but far from chilly like it has been, it was quite mild really, didn't need a jacket at all

Watched the 1st X-Files movie this arvo, it was great to see it again after all these years, it is 15 years old now

I bought the blu ray that had both movies on it for Steve's birthday last month

Those of us who can't afford to dedicate a brick to the occasional Cuban sandwich, have to 'make do' with a panini press.

I use a cast iron frying pan, with a clean smooth bottom!

I would be afraid of the grill melting the plastic handles of a panini press when you set it on the sandwich

I like Aunt Bea's idea of using a cast iron frying pan. I have bricks in the garden, but they are filthy.

BTW, what's in a "pressed Cuban"?

I've got a big CI pan with a lid if I am making them inside, but since I often grill them I use a brick outside. The sandwich is wrapped in foil.

And why would you think my brick is dirty?
People think nothing of brick pizza ovens? Just sayin' (to no one inparticular)

And if you've never had one you need to! It's one of the best sandwiches there is. Pork, ham, pickle, french bread works... all flattened out, or pressed... mmmm
