Gentleman's Juice and A Lady's Smoked Salmon, Avocado, and Chipotle Gouda Panini

Bryan has a zillion cooking tools. I have to admit, I was very, very skeptical when Bryan dropped $100 for a panini press, and even more so when he splurged $120 for a juicer.

Well I have to admit, he does make use of his panini press and juicer daily (according to him, he has to or else I'll make a comment on unnecessary purchases/clutter). He loves those machines, and it has certainly won him a lot of friends. He has, however, zero interest in baking.

Chef Uy: Do you have an eggbeater?
Bryan: No.
Chef Uy: Do you have a whisk?
Bryan: No.
Chef Uy: Do you have vanilla extract? Flour? Baking chocolate?
Bryan: No
Chef Uy: Do you have a springform pan? A cake pan? Or even a muffin pan? 
Bryan: No
Chef Uy: What kind of kitchen is this?? O_O
I suppose between all my baking contraptions and his random gadgets, we'll have the most fully equipped kitchen ever.

Ingredients
2 oranges, peeled
1 lemon
3 carrots
1/2 cup spinach
1/2 cup kale
1-2 apples

Directions
Peel oranges and cut carrots and apples into smaller pieces. Toss everything in juicer. Serve and enjoy!

PS. Apparently, you can simply throw a whole lemon in the juicer. The lemon definitely has a strong flavor. Although the green color is a little scary, you can't really taste the vegetables.

Since I'm not a huge bread person, I prefer to cram as much stuff as I can inside my paninis. Even if it doesn't fit inside the bread.

Chef Uy: *places sandwich on panini press. Everything explodes*
Bryan: really, dear?
Chef Uy: I like stuff in my sandwhich, ok!
Ingredients 
smoked salmon
spinach
chipotle gouda cheese
1/4 avocado
1 tomato, sliced
1 slice bread, halved

I have to admit, a panini press (or as Bryan calls it, a "sandwich awesomeifier") makes every sandwich just taste that much better.
