Life is a funny thing I find. Yesterday sucked snot with people that just wanted to fight me at every turn, my hubby is getting sick, and my moms dog is all winey for no reason. It didn’t change the fact that I went to bed happy. I knew without a doubt that today was a new day, and my husband loves me. As far as he winey dog. I think he misses having someone at home with him all day. I just need to spend some more time with him.

1 tube refrigerated pizza dough (recommended: Pillsbury brand)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour or corn meal
1/4 pound sliced pepperoni, about 24 slices
6 slices provolone, deli sliced
6 slices Italian hot ham
8 slices Genoa salami
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning blend
2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano or Romano
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
The Big Dipper: Simple Marinara Dipping Sauce, recipe follows, optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Break open the tube of dough and remove it from container. Dust your hands and lightly coat the dough with flour or cornmeal the roll out onto work surface. Stretch out dough, gently spreading out the rectangle shape it has been formed into already. Cut the thin rectangular dough into 4 equal pieces, working across the dough: cut it in half and cut each half in half again. Cover each piece of dough with: 6 slices pepperoni, 1 1/2 slices cheese, 1 1/2 slices hot ham and 2 slices Genoa salami. Roll each piece on an angle from corner to corner making a long roll that is thicker in the middle and thinner on each end. Brush rolls with extra-virgin olive oil then mix sesame seeds, cheese and seasonings in a small cup, sprinkle and pat the mixture into the dough. Bake until evenly golden, 12 to 14 minutes then serve. If desired, serve with Dipping Sauce.
This is what I made for dinner tonight. My husband loved them. He said the only thing missing was more. In all fairness I did put a little sauce inside. This is one of those recipes that is really easy to make and tastes really good. I suggest you try it. Let me know any variations you try.
Well, when my mom passed I thought I would get to eat my mom’s pishotta again. Guess what my dad had that no one knew about. I love it. I’m now the only one in the family that has it. Do yourselves a favor. IF you have something in your life that a parent makes that you love learn to make it now. It is so worth having those recipes. If you have kids write down the recipes they love for them. Trust me it’s funny what you miss when you lose someone.
You all are probably not going to think this is as funny as I do. Yesterday I had a migraine that was making me sick to my stomach. That’s not the funny part. Before I left work because I was sure I was going to be sick all over my desk one of my co-workers asked me to write her a letter of recommendation for a promotion. I don’t want the position she is going for so I was more than willing to write the recommendation. When I have a migraine like that I don’t write because when I read it 2 days later I look at it and think to myself what the hell was I thinking. I wrote the recommendation last night with the migraine. I sent it to the co-worker and no one else. Apparently she thought it was brilliant. It’s nice to know I can write some things in my sleep. Now here is the question for everyone. Why can’t I create in my sleep like that? and Dreams don’t count.
Yes I’ve been reading again. This book I read on Saturday. Yes the entire book in a day. Again another brilliant book. This one instead of taking place in New Orleans took place in New York. I was so glad to get out of the south. This time it was a wannabe movie star that was killed. I love it.
