Episode 75 - Hangry

Share it Please
Men are so funny.  Every now and then while cooking dinner, Dawson gets in this mood.  Its's kinda like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing.  Hyde-Dawson stomps around the kitchen, slams doors, and curses under his breath at inanimate objects.  Hyde-Dawson is basically angry at the kitchen.  Not at me, not at Roxie, but at the kitchen.  This isn't the funny part though.  The funny part is that he goes back to being Jekyll-Dawson as soon as he eats something.  Like...immediately.  The term I have coined for this odd behaviour is "hangry" - hungry + angry = hangry.  

Dawson was especially hangry last night while we were making this:

Look at the gooey cheese!  You want this in your belly.
Pizza Roll-up

1 prepared pizza dough (we use this one)  
1 cup shredded fresh mozzarella cheese
9 or 10 slices hot Genoa salami
1/2 green pepper, diced
5 or 6 kalamata olives, diced
1/2 cup fresh baby spinach
a sprinkling of spicy eggplant
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1 cup prepared pizza sauce (we use Dawson's)

First, preheat the oven to 425 and roll out your dough as you normally would to make a pizza.  Top with everything except the sauce.  Like this ------->

Now starting with the end closest to you, start rolling the dough kinda like sushi.  Don't worry about making it too tight.  Once you have something that looks like a delicious pizza-topping-filled log tuck the ends underneath.  Brush your log with the oil and season with the salt and pepper.  Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the outside gets nice and golden brown.

  To serve, slice into about 8 pieces (again, like giant sushi) with the sauce alongside for dipping!  I originally got the idea to make this kinda thing from watching Giada DeLaurentiis on the Food Network.  It's genius, no?

After getting some pizza log into his belly Dawson went back to being Jekyll-Dawson.  Yeah, men are so funny...

So nice to know that there's a word for something most males experience (being hangry). Also, I noticed on the right hand side that "cheese" is just as popular a label as "Dawson" is. No wonder I like this blog so much!! :)
