Hiya BetterMost friends.




I hope that everyone is doing well.

I'm currently baking 5 stromboli to bring to a birthday party today at 3:00.  2 are done, and 3 are in the oven now.  They should be done in about 20 minutes.   Once they cool, I can slice them up.

I'm seeing a lot of nice posts about BayCityJohn on the forums and on Facebook.  I was really shocked when I got the phone call from Fritz last night.  Yet, a part of me kind of expected it, I guess.  He had been having health problems, and was looking at a future kidney transplant, or a future on dialysis.

I send all of his loved ones love, peace and good vibes.

The weather here in NJ is finally spring-like.  Blue skies,  sun, and somewhere in the mid-sixties, temperature wise.  Yesterday was the same, and it feels good to have the windows open, and feel the fresh air coming into the apartment.

*side note*  I'm enjoying reading the posts here, so please don't think my post should change the direction of the posts.  Please continue, if you are so inclined!  :)

That sounds great! What do you put in yours? What kind of bread substance? Do you have to keep them warm?

I go quick and easy.  I use the Pillsbury pizza dough in the can.  Pop it open, spread it on a pan in a rectangle shape, fill it with pepperoni and mozzarella, roll it up and bake it.

In the past, I've used sausage and cheese, and buffalo chicken.

Any kind of sauce inside or out? If you make them at home to take to a pot luck, do you have to keep them warm or put them in the oven when you get there, or can you serve them cold?

It depends on what kind of stromboli I made.  If it was stuffed with buffalo chicken, I would serve it with bleu cheese or ranch to dip.

pizza toppings (pepperoni, meatballs) get served with a marinara sauce.

I make them a few hours before the event, let them cool a bit, and then slice.  I usually will warm the marinara sauce up to serve that hot with the sliced up stromboli.

Thanks for the info, Chuck! They sound delicious and reasonably easy and something I could try sometime, even though I'm not of Italian descent.

They are pretty easy to make, but I do have a tip for you.

You can't follow the cooking directions on the package.

Those directions are for a pizza crust, which is flat.  The directions may be something like "cook at 375 for 20 minutes", and if you do that, the dough outside will be cooked, but because it's rolled up, the dough inside will be raw.

After I roll the stromboli up,  I set the oven for 300, and cook it for about 30 - 40 minutes.  You have to eyeball it, and once it starts to turn a nice brown, it's done.

Also, you shouldn't use too much stuffing,  otherwise the stromboli will split apart when it cooks.

Good to know. Thanks, Chuck!  :D

Hiya BetterMost friends.




Yesterday was Friday, and pay day, so I'm happy!

I also have the following week off of work, and I intend to use it as spring cleaning time around the apartment.  I have a list of chores I need to get done this week!

Wash the curtains, clean the blinds, clean the windows, clean and dust all surfaces,  remove all 'knick-knacks' from shelves and dust/clean the shelves and knick-knacks, clean oven & refrigerator, move furniture to dust and vacuum under and beneath everything, put "carpet fresh" on the carpets and vacuum, scrub out the tub and bathroom, straighten slanted albums hung on wall, get Easter supplies.


I may need time off to rest u from my time off.  :laugh:

Let's see. Here's my tally.

I washed my curtains once. I have never cleaned the blinds (but then, rarely pull them down). I have hired professionals to clean my windows. I have cleaned and dusted surfaces, knick-knacks, etc., but possibly not as thoroughly as you will. I have a self-cleaning oven. I clean the refrigerator every few months. I occasionally move the furniture to vaccuum but have never used "carpet fresh." I have scrubbed the tub and bathroom, have no albums on my wall and have bought Easter supplies many times, but not since my kids were young(er).
