Recipe: Pizza Made with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls


Ainsley and I made dinner tonight while Kristen was at the gym. We kind of made it up based on stuff we have in the refrigerator. We made Pillsbury Crescent Rolls stuffed with pizza fixings.

Ingredients:

  • One Can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • One small can of pizza sauce (We had a regular size can, and only used half.)
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 16 pieces of pepperoni

Basically you pop open the crescent rolls, and unrolled them into triangles. This is a pain in the ass. One can contains eight triangles.

Put about 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce, a little shredded mozzarella, and two pieces of pepperoni on each triangle.

Roll them up according to the directions on the can. You can't really Crescent them... because they're pretty fat. Plop them on a cookie sheet (with no anti-sticking spray, etc.) and bake them at 375°F for about 12 minutes.

It makes eight rolls. Each roll is about the size of a small slice of pizza, so depending on your family you might double the recipe.

They have a slightly sweet taste because of the crescent rolls, serve you want more of a pizza flavor I'd recommend adding some garlic & oregano. We also made two of them without pepperoni, because Ainsley is a vegetarian. I tried both; the pepperoni ones were superior by far.

I don't think you could really use any other toppings because anything chunky would not roll very well. Anchovies would be a possibility, but peppers, mushrooms or onions would be too much.

Gourmet dinner... no. Twenty minute meal that kids like... yes.

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.


After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.


Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.


Sometimes no caption is necessary.


But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.


I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.

Marvels of the Science: Rocks and Things

My kids have a science test today. We've been studying rocks and minerals, erosion and weathering, and other science-y geology stuff all week.

All that work, and we just should have done in Internet search. After all, everything on the Internet is factual when it comes to science.

Here's a perfect example, a quick documentary that teaches us everything we know about rocks and 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

Stretch your brains!
