I’m super proud of me today. I don’t Pinterest much (because I get on there and the crafts scare me away); but sometimes I’m on there and fall into the deep hole of FOOD. I actually came across this recipe on Facebook, but still- I “saved” it and ACTUALLY MADE IT. Can I officially call myself a DIY’er? I think this might be the closest I ever get.
Like I mentioned, I came across the recipe from Kevin & Amanda for their “Hot Ham & Cheese Party Rolls” and thought… who needs a party to make THOSE happen? Not me. I made them for dinner. I had Veggie Rigatoni left over from yesterday that I made into Pasta Salad and Voila`. Dinner in less than 30 minutes.
Verdict: TOTAL WIN.
Win for simplicity, win for being fun and different from what I normally serve for dinner (especially on a Sunday). The only thing that wasn’t a WIN, was the fact that there are no leftovers. Thank goodness for a Meal Plan that’s already done for the week. Boo, for having to actually cook tomorrow.
Here are Kevin & Amanda’s:
I followed their recipe, with only a few variations. I thought I had Worcestershire, but did not. So, I substituted Balsamic Vinegar with the Worcestershire Sauce. Also, when I looked in my pantry, I DID have Poppy Seeds. But the date on them was May 2015. Major Fail. The sauce was AMAZING with the vinegar, and only gave it a very slight twang. Not overpowering at all! I didn’t miss the Poppy Seeds, although they would have made the presentation better.
I plan on adding this to my older kids lunch rotations (they can bring hot food for lunch at their schools). Also, I can totally see taking these to a potluck, or party. You can make them before hand and let refrigerate… and (with permission) bake them at a friend’s house. PLEASE, make sure you ask…they might have a full oven already. Also, you can be the Friend of the Year to a new mom, for being the person that doesn’t bring Italian or Chicken of some kind.
Like I said, TOTAL WIN.
