For now, I will try to maintain my small readership my giving you some new posts on this site until the other one is ready to go.
In other new adventures - I made something with pepperoni in it. I notoriously hate pepperoni and always have. I won't even eat a slice of pepperoni pizza that has the pepperoni picked off of it because of the horrible pepperoni grease left behind. And my dislike has nothing to do with pepperoni being greasy or bad for you. I love greasy. I just hate the taste. But Adam loves it and probably has been suffering from pepperoni withdrawals, so when I came across a recipe for Stromboli on the blog Liv Life I decided I had to give it a try - if only for Adam - and the possibility of it being great quick and easy party food. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly. It calls for ham, pepperoni, cheese, and bread - a winning combo (except for the pepperoni). The one thing I did differently was instead of using a frozen loaf of bread like the recipe suggests, I used Pillsbury french loaf. I was unsure how it was going to work, but it turns out it is really easy to unroll the Pillsbury french loaf at the seam and laying it flat in order to lay all the ingredients on it. So easy, and that way you don't have to worry about defrosting frozen dough.
It was so easy and came out beautifully. Adam loved it and it would be great party food.
I even liked it, despite the pepperoni, in fact it was a good way to get me to consider liking pepperoni. But really, do I need to like pepperoni? I like almost everything else that is bad for you, I don't think I need to add another to the list.
I can't wait to try other combos. Next time I think I'm going to do turkey, roasted red peppers, and cheese. Check out the original recipe here.
peace, love, pepperoni?, and happiness!
And wish me luck on the new blog! I'm getting excited!
