the way to woo a woman: CALZONES as comfort food...

I have been fiddling around with calzones this week...gluten-free doughs tend to be more wet and sticky than wheat doughs, and you need to roll out calzone dough to make a turnover.  Based upon the original gluten-free on a shoestring pizza recipe, with added potato starch and an egg, huzzah!  A nice, soft, flexible, AWESOME calzone dough.  I made them twice, for one of those 4 meals in a row yummy weeks.... the filling is a ricotta like mix of soy with sauteed eggplant, tomato, spinach and olives and WAY TOO much spice... oh GOODness....

The wife was reminding me of what I was thinking all day:
"when we started dating you fed me calzones and I WAS GONE, totally fell for you..."
so there is some history there!  If only macho men realized that a good woman will lose her heart for you not because you have a monster truck but because you are a master chef....

In other news, frost was predicted last night.  Seems pretty damn EARLY, you know?  I don't know yet if we have frost but temps do seem to be in the 30s.  My Cali and Florida friends are like "WTF, 30s in SEPTEMBER???".  The world overall has had a hot year but upstate NY has been a mite chilly....
I took down the screen doors and made pumpkin bread.  That sh!t usually happens in October...sigh...

Anyway, our neighbors madly harvested tomatoes and we got SO MANY and I made a quick pot of marinara sauce OH GOSH the house smells good... have a great weekend!

Those look so yummy! I haven't made calzone in years, now I am inspired.

Your wife knows a good man when she is fed by one!

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen said...

Calzones AND marinara sauce? Yes, please! I'll definitely try your recipe. Jim would be sooooo happy to have homemade calzones. Happy Weekend. Please send us some cool weather. :)

Your wife is so very right. In our case it was Guinness stew. Which, now I think of it, he's only ever made the once.

Also, I'm hoping cool weather now means warm weather mid-October.

I could marry a calzone. But you probably knew that.
