Buon Giorno my friends and welcome to day 2 of sandwich week. I hope everyone had a great Labor day weekend. If you stopped by yesterday and read about our Grandfather mountain woes, then you’ll be happy to know that we did indeed make it to the mountain yesterday. The weather was beautiful, and we were able to squeeze in lunch, a visit to the swinging bridge and a 2 mile hike to Black Rock; and best of all, no one got sick. All in all, it was a great way to finish off our Labor Day celebration.
But enough about me, let’s get to today’s business. First up, the giveaway winner! I threw the number of comments into random.org’s number generator and out popped number 24. Congratulations to Kristina Churchill!! She was the 24th comment on Friday’s post. Kristina, I’ll be emailing your for with more information later today.
To kick off sandwich week, we celebrated American style with the good ol’ fashioned burger, “turkeyed” up all snazzy for your eating pleasure. Today we’re going to head over the Atlantic (or maybe just make a stop in New York if we’re not up for the long travel) and dive into an Italian treat that we all know and love; the calzone.
This was my first time making calzones and I have to say, I even impressed myself! These babies were beautiful and delicious to boot. I’ve pretty much made everything from scratch below, but you can make this as easy or hard as you’d like but simply buying a ball of dough and some pre-jarred pizza sauce instead of making your own if you so desire. Use my filling or create your own combination of tasty insides. The sky’s the limit with this tasty sandwich treat! Let’s get rolling.
