The other night, the boys made their own dinner because my Shrimp Creole was going to "spice their mouths too much." (In all fairness, they were right, although Curt made a valiant attempt at enjoying some of the Mardi Gras dish while frantically gulping gallons of milk).
So instead, they made Pepperoni Rolls and had a blast enjoying the fruits of their hard labor.
1 tube Pillsbury Reduced-Fat Crescent Rolls (I *meant* to buy the reduced fat. I must have grabbed the wrong ones)
1 package turkey pepperoni
3 sticks light-mozzarella string cheese
Italian spice blend
Marinara sauce, for dipping.
Cut string cheese into thirds.
Be *very* careful not to "accidentally" cut your brother's hand. Especially when he's standing well away from you. Just sayin'.
Unroll crescent dough and press gently into triangles.
Be *very* careful not to "accidentally" leave fingerprints in your brother's four triangles. Even if they are in a different spot on the kitchen counter from yours.
Sprinkle Italian seasoning onto triangles of dough. Be *very* careful not to "accidentally" shake too much seasoning onto your brother's dough.
Place pepperoni on dough in any pattern or amount you'd like. Be *very* careful not to eat a pepperoni (or four) off your brother's roll.
Place a piece of string cheese at the "top", widest part, of the crescent roll. Be *very* careful not to "accidentally" knock the piece of cheese off of your brother's roll.
Starting from the wide/cheese end, roll, folding in sides as you go. Be *very* careful to not to "accidentally" bump your brother's elbow and he's carefully rolling.
Fold in edges over string cheese and pepperoni.
Be proud of your finished product.
