the foods of my youth...

Wednesday, March 24, 2010 |
i hope you all remember nicole from here. this is (sadly) the most recent photo we have of each other together. we were in philly visiting my nana who was sick with cancer. it was a hard time for me and i really love her for coming to visit.
(ok ba-what are you thinking with those jeans?!)
thankfully now we both look a bit better.
or at least more 2010 and not so much 1994.

my second mom her mom joyce made THE BEST PEPPERONI ROLLS! maybe because i never had them anywhere else before or after. but whatever the reason, i loved parties at their home because they would for sure be there! (that and chex mix)

i am certain she made her roll dough from scratch when we were kids,
but here is a fast easy way to make them.
(and joyce said it was ok to do it this way. if she said it is ok-then it is!)
4 rolls of pillsbury refrigerated biscuits
(yes-you will eat all FOURTY of them)
1 pound pepperoni
now you want to cut your pepperoni so they look like fries, NOT like the way they serve them on pizza.
again, that is how joyce did it. don't mess with perfection.
roll each biscuit to make a flat oval, place pepperoni stick in the middle and roll dough around it.
place on cookie sheet and bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes.

very best when they are hot from the oven, but if bob and joyce sent me a box from pa and they were cold, i'd still take them!
**ps, bob and joyce were in an aweful accident thursday night/friday morning. bob has a cracked vertabrae in his neck, but it's not near the spinal cord and won't cause any nerve damage. his hand is pretty swollen from the air bag & he has a bad mark on his chest form the seatbelt. joyce has a broken wrist and will had a sucessful surgery friday and the drs put a steel plate and some screws in her wrist. she also has 2 cracked ribs & her knee is pretty bruised up. (this was an email i received from nicole friday)
i am keeping them in my prayers, because as you know,
old people take a long time to get over stuff like this!
(XOXOX  headed  your way bob and joyce)
****another update...bob and joyce are home resting!****

Zach will love them. He loves anything that resembles pizza and is easy. I am glad they're recovering. Hope all goes well.
