DLW :: Whatever-is-in-the-fridge Calzones

Sometimes we’re fancy around here and spend a lot of time and effort planning and cooking a meal…and others…it is just about filling your stomach for the evening.  These are the evenings when having some random ingredients in the fridge and pantry comes in handy!

Although pizza dough is incredibly easy and relatively quick to make…every so often I grab a bag of dough from the refrigerated section of Trader Joe’s – it can be so versatile.  So…we happened to have one just waiting to be used.

Throw in a leftover half an onion, some green olives and some roasted red peppers and whatever remnants of cheese you have along with some herbs and seasoning…and all of a sudden, you’ve got a delicious calzone.  I tend to leave the sauce out of the calzone and serve it warm on the side…otherwise, it can make everything a bit soggy.  We split this one between the two of us and it was a nice light meal.

What are your go-to pantry meals and creations?

    Of course that was the origin of our form of “tea sandwiches” – Sundays after church I’d get all the smidges of stuff you find in the fridge – cheeses, the odd sliced fruit, bits of jam and leftover raw veggies & mushrooms, hard-boiled eggs, cold cuts, not to mention nut butters, seeds, pickles, olives, and the occasional exotic like smoked salmon. You’d be surprised how many containers I could empty. Even on a light Sunday there’d be at least a dozen varieties. Just cut the crusts off any breads you have around, get creative and make ’em pretty. You guys never complained.
