As a result of being sick I didn't plan a menu for the week, but by default took part in a Pantry Challenge on one of the food blogs I follow (http://www.mrshappyhomemaker.com/.) I was nowhere near as prepared as the blogger, but I cooked from what I had on hand, including a night of leftovers to clear the 'fridge, and pizza last night because I just couldn't be bothered. The downside of not planning means I have nothing planned for In-Law Dinner Night. No-meat Friday helps narrow my options, but I'm not feeling inspired.
I made this Quick Dough to make Zesty Calzones, which I've made and posted about before. I found this Quick Dough and have used it a couple times now in place of either my longer-to-make pizza dough, or in place of store bought "canned" dough. The dough comes together in less than 30 minutes and is really good - light, but crunchy. It worked great for these Calzones, which can be filled, really, with whatever you have on hand. I had ham, pepperoni, mixed shredded cheese, tomatoes and red onions. But turkey, bacon, ranch and sliced cheese would be great, too.
I'm hoping to get my family through a weekend without someone getting sick. I see Clorox Wipes in the hands of my children wiping down surfaces, handles and railings over the weekend. Hubby has a dinner to attend with a friend. Otherwise, I think we're just watching the snow melt. Literally.
