Beadles, Sponge Bob, Frisbees and Stromboli

Oh, what a Monday!

First, i had the pleasure of joining my Mom and Grandpa R at the Beadle Center to meet up with some Sixth Graders from Dawes Middle School – the recipients of a Remigio Teaching Excellence Grant… it was cool. I drive by the Beadle Center every morning on my way to work or to help out at the Alpha Chi house… but i had never been inside…

We split into two groups, and I got to join up with my 7th grade health teacher… small world, i tell you! The kids were too funny, i couldn’t help but to capture some snaps:
Touring the Greenhouses

Demonstrating the Venus Flytrap… though, this one doesn’t thrive on human blood

Quote of the day: “Hey, a Pineapple – is that where Sponge Bob lives?”
From the mouths of babes…

The day progressed as normal… as normal as a 55-degree rainy February day (odd)…

I went home to play with the pups… let them have a go at their new PetsMart frisbees we picked up at the Dog Expo, Saturday:

did a bit of sewing (which i hope to blog on in the near future…)

and then created AJ’s most favorite meal– STROMBOLI!
I shall share this with the world, because it’s just that good!


1 roll Pillsbury French Loaf dough
8 oz Smoked Turkey slices (or your favorite flat meat)
1 bunch scallions
1 package bacon crumbles/bacon bits (or be all fancy, and cook your own bacon!)
8 oz – 16 oz Cheese (here, i used Pepper Jack slices)

Preheat oven to 350-degrees
unroll french loaf dough – make sure not to tear
evenly lay out flat meat
finely chop scallions and scatter on top of flat meat
scatter bacon pieces atop
add cheese evenly
*here, i called an audible and added dollops of cream cheese… do as you wish

Tightly and evenly roll dough into french loaf shape. be sure to secure all seams and ends.
Poke air holes in top of loaf.
*again, i added some olive oil prior to baking

Bake for 26-30 minutes.

Play with your dogs while Stromboli bakes:

Once finished, spread top with a slight bit of butter to add sheen
slice and enjoy!
*i probably should have left it in the oven for 2:30 longer… but it was already 8:45pm and we were starving!

Other variations include:
ITALIAN – tomato sauce, pepperoni, sausage and mozzarella cheese
PHILLY – roast beef, sauteed onions and green peppers and provolone cheese
CLUB – turkey, ham, bacon, cheddar and ranch powdered seasoning
