Every now and then I get off track…today is going to be one of those days and posts. This posting is going to have a little bit of this a little bit of that. Just me and some random, probably way out there jibberish. But there are some quirkly things I want to get out there, silly little things that are important to me.
So….I have a question (trust me it’s a strange one) that has bugging me since New Year’s Eve when I actually saw the movie “New Years Eve” for the very first time. I know, I’m so behind. Anyway, I think it’s a pretty decent movie, how could it not be, Jon Bon Jovi was in it, that in itself was worth a peek right? I like Katherine Heigl and Michelle Pfeiffer so that was a plus. My problem is the very end, the last scene with Sara Jessica Parker….my question is when are they going to STOP portraying this almost 50-year-old woman as a 30 something girl? I didn’t have a problem with SJP in the movie until that last scene. I wish they would have switched the endings for SJP and Hillary Swank, to me that would have been more believable, SJP as Robert De niro’s daughter, Hillary Swank as Josh Duhamel’s love interest.
Don’t get me wrong, I like SJP. I loved her in Sex And The City, the TV series and series of movies which much more closely portray her closer to her own real life age. But it seems that in any other movie SJP has been in outside of the Sex And The City trilogy she is always portrayed as someone much younger than she really is which by the way is 48 on her next birthday (I looked it up just for this blog, I am not a SJP stalker). Not that it matters to anyone but me, but I am over the SJP hype, I don’t get it, I don’t see it. Just me…just saying.
Moving on….we are in college football mourning in our house, Notre Dame lost the game last night. I know we (really it’s just Walt), are going to dissect this game for several days. Wait, we won’t dissect it, Walt will dissect it and I will listen first to how they got trampled on then to how all that really matters is that they made it to the game and what a great season they had. When the mourning is done, it will last a few days, I already know the final acceptable response will be, “They were good enough to make it there, it’s all that matters.” By the weekend mourning Notre Dame’s loss will be replaced with NFL playoffs.
Yesterday I took a tupperware with some of the Sunday spaghetti sauce over to my mom and dad. I was happy when I got a call last night from my mom, she made some of the spaghetti as a side dish to their dinner last night and she and my dad thought that it was very good, that it had a real authentic Italian taste and agreed with me that it was close to restaurant quality. Mom and dad were a little worried because I kept telling them how spicy it was (that was more Walt) and although they said they could pick up on the spicy taste, it wasn’t that over powering. When I told Walt that they liked the new sauce Walt said he wants to hear from them this morning before he takes their critique, he wants them to give it 12 hours. I am not even going to go into all the whacky things my sweet husband said about all of that other than to say he had me laughing so hard I cried, I laughed and cried so hard I could not talk. He is such a goof!!
For months I have been trying to get this blog organized. I really wanted to have a section where readers could go to find just the recipes, no chit-chat, no extra photo’s …just a simple, easy to find recipes from the daily blogs. At first I thought the answer would be in a tab that was simply labeled “Just Recipes.” I soon discovered that wasn’t going to be the answer, there are way to many recipes to put on just one page, people would scroll forever. So I added a couple of extra pages “Beef Recipes” and “Slow Cooker Recipes” and I cut and pasted a recipe or two onto those pages.
Then the pages sat, they sat and they sat and they sat, until yesterday when I spent a few hours creating more pages, surfing through my archives and started the process of cutting and pasting recipes onto the appropriate pages. I have a long way to go but at least it’s started, I procrastinated because I was just a little nervous about exploring my WP options but once I started just playing around with tabs and info things started falling into place. So please bare with while I create and update the sidebar pages.
Today I leave you with the recipe for the Buffalo Chicken Garbage Bread that we made on Saturday. It wasn’t my plan to serve two spicy dishes back to back this weekend, to be fair I never thought that the spaghetti would pack a tiny punch, it’s just how it worked out and ended up working out really well. We loved the Buffallo Chicken Garbage Bread and want to share it with you today.
This is a great recipe to make while your sitting around watching a movie or a football game. It went together really easy and the taste was fantasitc. Walt and I both really loved it. Walt like it so much, he is already thinking of variations to make. I didn’t change anything on this one, I did it exaxty as it was posted. Give it a try, let us know how you like it.
I found this recipe on Pinterest from “Finding A New Life Through Food” http://emmalinaviolet.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/buffalo-chicken-garbage-bread/
Buffalo Chicken Garbage Bread
What You’ll Need:
2 boneless chicken breasts
1 tsp. olive oil
1 pizza dough (I used store bought and let it sit out for about 20 minutes)
8 oz. of shredded mozzarella cheese (I used part skim)
3 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of Franks Wing Sauce
1/3 cup of ranch or blue cheese dressing (I used Ranch)
- Cut chicken into cubes
- Season with salt and pepper
- Heat teaspoon of olive oil in skillet and add chicken when hot
- Cook chicken completely and then add 1/4 cup of wing sauce
- Stir to coat chicken and let simmer for a minute or two
- Take chicken off heat and let cool.
- Pre-heat oven to 425°F
- On a well-floured surface, spread pizza dough into a long rectangle shape.
- Add ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing (depending on your preference!) and remaining 1/4 cup of wing sauce and mix
- Spread across the dough
- Add chicken and then top with mozzarella and cheddar cheese
- You can also add a bit more of the wing sauce on top of the cheese if you want it to be a little bit spicier
- Roll the dough like a pinwheel until you reach the end (don’t roll too tight or dough won’t cook on the inside)
- Make sure to tuck the ends of the dough in so the middle doesn’t ‘ooze’ out when baking
- Spray baking sheet with light coat of non-stick cooking spray
- Place garbage bread on the pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes
- Let sit for five minutes and cut into and enjoy!
