I was extremely exhausted when I got home from work this morning so I immediately went and took a nap.
That nap was only supposed to have been an hour, but it went two hours and when I woke up, I was rather panicked because I had plans of making a decent dinner for the roommates.
Thankfully the dinner I had planned still happened. The first was home made pepperoni rolls using store bought biscuits, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese cubes and an assortment of herbs and spices.
Those turned out OK – not necessarily the greatest, however enjoyable none-the-less.
The other thing on my menu was pepperoni bread. Inspired almost exclusively by the Kneady Homesteader on YouTube (her blog here) I set out and made one of the best things ever. I did not make the pepperoni bread as large as she does and I used a white bread dough instead of a pizza bread dough – but let me tell you, this bread turned out great, like far better than my expectations.
I was so completely happy with myself and I was happy that I could share this achievement with my best friend. I mean, this is one of those “you had to have been there” type incidents where I make something and the result far exceeds my expectations. In the future, I will essentially make this delicious recipe pretty much the same way, only alternating the inside ingredients. I’m not sure that I want to attempt the recipe with pizza dough, the white bread dough worked out just fine.
This pepperoni bread is by far one of the easiest and most delicious things I’ve ever made. When you break down the costs, it’s also extremely cheap and will easily feed the three of us. Not to mention, I can just make a large batch of dough if I need to make a larger loaf.
In regards to the insurance: my best friend and I were not able to open up a joint bank account today because both of us are literally living paycheck to paycheck and can not even afford the $5 to open the account, let alone the initial deposit that the account will also require.
So that won’t occur until payday, our pushy insurance guy will just have to wait right now.
Right now however it is time for me to get some (more) sleep.
