It’s Friday night, dad’s working late, Christopher’s off with his aunt and uncle for a night of birthday fun and I am stuck at home with no car. What do I do with the two mopey-faced boys left behind to make it feel like the weekend?
First, pizza pockets, of course…
In front of a movie of William’s choice (with nobody to argue it)…
Followed by a blue version of a family favorite, Pink Popcorn (recipe below). And it’s a party!
Follow this roll recipe for the dough. After it rises, divide into 8 equal pieces. Allow to rise for about 10 minutes and then roll each piece out (or work flat with your hands like a pizza crust) and fill one half of the dough circle with sauce, shredded mozzarella and your favorite pizza toppings. Fold the top over and pinch and roll the edges up like a pie crust.
1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
(sometimes I add 1 can diced tomatoes)
1 tablespoon or so sugar (to taste)
2 or 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar (to taste)garlic salt
Heat in a sucepan.
1 cube butter
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup corn syrup
Melt butter. Add sugar and corn syrup and bring to a boil for about 1 1/2 minutes. Pour over air popped corn. Form into balls with greased hands or eat it straight out of the bowl.
