The past few days have been a “flurry” :) of snow days. Several days later, I’m beginning to see how folks get tired of snow. We live on a fourth-dary road. (A road after primary, secondary, and third-dary) So it’s still a giant sheet of ice and snow. Not to mention that NONE of the snow has melted from our yard. I hope I don’t sound like I’m complaining, because I do still love snow. It’s just so pretty :) Plus friends stop by:
Luckily, Parrish and Max have been pretty good about going on snow walks with me.
Yesterday I braved the roads and headed in to work for a few hours. Luckily the primary roads were pretty clear and I made it there safe and sound. We have an artisan coming from Uganda this Friday, so there is a TON of work to do.
And today I was off! But I was determined NOT to treat it like a snow day. So while I was laying in bed this morning, watching the Weather Channel, I made a list of things to do. Number one was make a rockin’ bowl of gluten free oats:
1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill GF rolled oats whipped with 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup milk, and half a banana sliced thin.
I topped the oats with cocoa roasted almonds. This bowl was SO GOOD!!!
I’m happy to say that I did get most of my list accomplished today. Floors swept and mopped, kitchen cleaned (for real), and errands ran. The only room I didn’t get to was the bathroom, but that’s a quickie. I’m not sure how Max sheds SO much and still has fur…but he does. Needless to say, there is always sweeping to be done. You’d think Max would help, but he spent his day like this:
Don’t let his cuteness fool you. He snores BIG time!!
For supper tonight, Parrish and I made a SPECIAL treat in honor of LOST :)
Gluten Free Calzones. Tasty!
I made the dough earlier today using the 365 Whole Foods Brand Pizza Crust. I divided the crust into 6 dough balls. I froze 2 balls and refrigerated 4. Refrigerating the dough really helped. While prepping the stuffing I sipped on my Favorite. Wine. Ever.
Black Box Cab Sav.
You know the best part of this wine aside from the taste? I opened this box over a week ago and it still tastes PERFECT!! I love how long this wine lasts. I don’t drink much wine and I hate wasting bottles just for one glass. But why am I telling you guys this? Ya’ll already know I LOVE THE BOX!
For stuffing we used:
Sauteed spinach, onions, peppers, olives, garlic, cheeses, and
Did you know that Hormel pepperoni is gluten free? Fatty but gluten free.
The key ingredient was actually Christmas present I bought Parrish:
It’s an infused olive oil with tons of chunky herby goodness
I rolled out the dough to the width of a quarter and cut it into a circle to make for easy calazone-ing.
I made two big calzones and one mini. Baked at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
I brushed the calzones with olive oil to help the crust brown a bit more. Gluten free crust never seems to completely brown, but the olive oil did help.
The calzones were super tasty! And I have MORE than enough left over for lunch tomorrow.
Okay friends, sorry to post and run but LOST is on!! It’s only been on for 7 minutes and I’m already confused!!!!
