I made something last night that had my kiddos thinking I was a super hero. I made up some Pioneer Woman pizza dough on Friday, and decided to make pepperoni rolls with the dough Saturday for a fun dinner. It was pretty freaking easy, and I don't know why I never tried it before... All I did was roll out the dough in a big rectangle shape, then pile on some shredded cheese an pepperoni. I then rolled it up, and then using a knife, cut the roll in 2 inch pieces. I then placed them on greased baking pans. I had some Italian seasoning, so I sprinkled that on top of the rolls, and then baked them on 500 degrees until they looked done... maybe 20 minutes or so.
The picture I took was when they first went in the oven, forgot the whole after picture, BUT the girls and husband simply loved them, and we even have a few left over to have for lunch today. This will be something I can see mysef making for fast dinners when we have a lot going on and need something FAST.
In non-cooking news our city had a pass they gave out for free to all the area museums, that we picked up a few weeks ago, so we took advantage of doing a few things this weekend. Two of the places are 2 miles away from our house. Friday I took the girls to the Peninsula Fine Art Center. We went back directly to the kids area (it's a back room devoted to letting kids create some art work). The girls colored, drew on the chalk board wall, made some beaded bracelets, etc). I then attempted to look at some of the art work with them in the galleries, but that didn't go so well lol. This museum has some local art, but they also get in some big name items... Currently they had an Andy Warhol, and Emily get reaching for it, so we got the heck out of there. That's all I need, is for us to damage some million dollar item... Sorry kids, no college education for you.
Saturday we went back out to the Mariner's Museum, which is right next door to the PFAC. This was pretty cool, and had really grown since I had last been there, which I guess was 11 years ago. Emily spent the whole time screeching "boat" whenever she saw one, and wanting to touch all of them. I have to say I enjoyed seeing both of those places, and I feel really bad that they are so close to our house but we never go. I am going to have to change that, or at least take advantage of the free deals once a year.
