Call me Chef Andrea...

So I get wife of the year award today kids. Hands down.

Ok, so I didn't really do anything that makes me worthy of it, but I did cook a fabulous meal while my husband cleaned. So yes, I have Wife of the Year award! :)

I made homemade calzones. Technically it wasn't homemade, but it wasn't frozen. So therefore, I declare it be called homemade calzone. It was SUPER yummy! I grew up on this whenever I lived in PA. There was this restaurant in Oakmont by the yacht club where we kept our boat. I got the spinach and cheese calzone EVERYTIME I ate there. It was the best thing ever. I've tried Old Chicago's and while it's good, it doesn't even touch that restaurant's.

So here's my easy peasy recipe.
FYI: I don't do measurements. I guesstimate EVERYTHING.
2 pkgs of crescent rolls
bag of mozz cheese
shredded parmesan cheese
small container of ricotta cheese
Garlic Salt
Marinara sauce/Spaghetti sauce

Sean's the beefy meaty guy while I just do veggies. You can do whatever you'd like. Tonight for Sean's I made pepperoni, hamburger, green pepper, and red onion. Mine was just extra ricotta, tomato, and onion. You can honestly add any topping you like. Mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, etc.

Fold out the crescent roll and press all the triangles together so it doesn't break apart. Line them up together to make a large square. Add majority of the ricotta to crust and spread all around. On 1/2 of the square add your toppings. I did mine on 1/2 of the 1/2 and then Sean's was on the other 1/2. If you have a couple different toppings, add mozz cheese in between layers so it sticks together. Then fold over the other half of the crust and press the ends together. Melt the butter and brush it over the crust. Sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese and garlic salt. Put in the oven at 375 for 25 minutes.

Ta-da... now eat the best stinking food ever! You'll be glad you did!

In other news... I'm 27 weeks!!!!!!!!!! 13 weeks to go and only 90 days.

Say it with me... AHHHH!

Here's a few things about the pregnancy so far.

1. I can no longer sleep through the night. If you know me and my sleep habits, then you know this is torture. I have to get up to pee at least once a night and have trouble falling back to sleep. Every. Stinkn. Time.

2. My belly is a growing. I've grown a lot in the past 2 weeks. And this isn't just my own opinion. Others have agreed.

3. I am now having trouble getting out bed, off our couch, tying my shoes, and putting on pants.

4. Whenever I do tie my shoes, I can not breathe the.entire.time.

5. She's a moving and a grooving in there. She's getting on a schedule and if you put a little bit of pressure on my tummy, you'll feel her move every time. She loves gymnastics time and also loves to practice her tap dancing on my bladder.

6. She hangs out on my right side all the time.

I'm sure there is more, but there's some tidbits for ya.

Oh, and my Mom-to-be day was awesome. Sean sorta dropped the ball. He had planned on getting me a card and present earlier in the week. Whenever we woke up Sunday morning, he told me Happy Mother's Day and that he was going to go clean up the garage and then we'd leave for his parents. Well 30 minutes later and he still hadn't come in so I went out to look for him. But he wasn't in the garage and his vehicle was gone. I called him but no answer. So I went and played on the Internet and shortly after wards, Sean appears with a card and gift. Silly boy went into Hays to get it for me. It made for a cute little memory! The card fit me oh-so perfectly. On the inside it said...
Just think, Mom,
if I'm the princess,
that makes you the queen!

Well this has been a super long post, and I even planned to talk about more. I'll add it to my list and save it for tomorrow!

Have a great night!

  1. Those calzones look really good. Might have to try them. I can honestly say I've never had calzones because the ones at school always looked so disgusting, I've never tried them. Yours look good though! I can't wait to see your belly in a few weeks at the shower!
