It's The First Day Of Spring!

It's Fun Friday!


It's cold and dreary out!
I have a migraine!

Yay.

*Sarcasm anyone?*

Alas, the show must go on...



We were hoping for a little "Welcome Spring" picnic at the falls but the weather is sooo not ready for that yet. Ugh. But, rest assured, our Fun Friday is still "on". I am hoping to have kicked my migraine (and my mood) by dinner time.

Here's what's on our fungenda this evening:


We'll be doing the standard dinner & family movie night- homestyle.



First up? Nom-nom-noming on homemade Italian comfort food.


Homemade Stromboli

Quick, Simple, and So YUMMY!


You'll Need:

1 pizza crust (I use the Pillsbury Pizza crust that you find in the biscuit aisle)
1 jar of pizza sauce (we like Prego)
1 (2 cup) bag of your favorite pizza cheese (we use an Italian blend and mix a wee bit of cheddar in)

Your favorite pizza toppings

We like: Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Green Pepper, Red Onion, Ground Beef, Mushrooms, Black Olives, and Pepperochini Peppers. Of course, little man likes just cheese- so I make two.

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees (or whatever the package of crust tells you to) and prepare any toppings that need to be cooked separate (like ground beef or sausage).

Grease a large cookie sheet and roll out your crust. You want a nice rectangle to work with because you're going to be folding the sides over the toppings.

Add half the cheese down the middle of the crust (you'll be working long-ways) and then add your other toppings then the rest of the cheese.

Fold one side over and then the other so that they meet in the middle of your toppings (it's good if they overlap slightly so that it will stay together).

Be sure your ends are closed so that toppings and cheese don't ooze out the ends.

Bake! (follow package instructions- usually 10-15 minutes)

I heat my pizza sauce on the stove while the Stromboli is baking.

I like to top mine with a special blend in the last few minutes of baking:

Melt 1/4 cup of butter, add a dash of Mrs. Dash Tomato-Basil-Herb seasoning, a dash of Parmesan cheese, and just a tiny pinch of garlic. Mix well then brush over the top of your Stromboli then return it to the oven for about 2 minutes - keep an eye on it- it will brown fast!

You're done when the crust is a nice warm brown and a toothpick comes out clean and not doughy.

Slice, top with pizza sauce, and serve.  You can also serve this with the sauce on the side instead, but we like to pour it on! A nice salad goes great with this!

Mmm Mmm Good!


Picky Eater Alternative:
Divide your dough into smaller rectangles and let everyone choose their own toppings and make individual small Stromboli instead of one large one. This is especially fun if you have kids.





As for movie night ...

Even though it's "family" night, it was my turn to choose.

I love how you leave instructions on how to make the goods!
This weekend I'm editing and maybe playing on Wattpad !

Sounds delicious and super easy! I'm sure my brood would love that so I'll have to try it soon! Our plans got run over by two boys playing soccer. This is my first time to do soccer with two kids and it's going to make our whole family insane. INSANE. I also am calling lineups for roller derby tomorrow night, so a very sports-filled day also filled with people...I'm an introvert and might die. HELP.

Jase said...

That looks and sounds amazing! We'll have to try it.

DM Kilgore said...

Kelsey- I wouldn't tease ya with the food and not leave a how to! Or would I? Muwahahaha

Kirstin- NO WAY! I used to play roller derby. =) Lady Literati is hitting the track and the body count is rising! LOL *blocker*

Jase- totally yummy. It is one of our family favorites!
