Holi Moli!

The Bad News?  All that wonderful Indian Summer weather is gone.  I saw snow this morning.
The Good News?  It's Friday.  And according to the weather gods, it's supposed to hit 60 this weekend (not holding my breath, but it would be nice!)
Okay.  I can deal with a cold big deal.  'Round the TFB household, Friday's are generally pretty low key days.  The hubster and I are usually wiped out after a week of go go go, so we tend to do a low key workout, change into jammies, and watch our DVR'ed shows with an easy to assemble dinner.  You know, to get ready for our crazy clubbing routine senior bedtime of 10pm.  Boy am I lucky to have found someone who is as much of a homebody as I am :-)
Low Key Workout:  A TRI (haha) fecta of gym cardio-15 minutes on the treadmill, stepmill and rower.  15 minutes of ab work= 1 hour active time, no boredom involved!
Low Key Dinner:  Stromboli's!  (Please excuse the lack of prep photos-I made the rookie blogger mistake of not documenting every step but hey...if we all don't know what a bag of flour looks like, we have bigger problems :-P)

Holi Moli Stromboli!
The goods:
2 cups flour (extra for rolling)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp. Italian spice mix (basil, onion, black pepper)
1 package yeast
Warm water to mix

The filling:
1 cup skim mozzarella cheese
2 tomatoes, chopped
minced garlic
green pepper

To make the dough:  Add one cup warm water to yeast.  Let set for 5 minutes.  Add in sugar, spice, and flour.  Mix until soft dough forms.  Set in a bowl covered with a towel in a warm place (70-75 degrees)  for 2 hours, or until doubled.  Roll out on flour covered surface.
Saute onion and pepper and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes.  Chop up your 'maters. Add sauce, cheese and veggies to one side of the dough.  Fold over non-veggie side, seal ends.  Bake on a pizza stone at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, or until cooked through.  Let set 5 minutes before slicing.  Makes a generous dinner for 2!
Stay in tonight and watch Fringe, New Girl and Up All Night with a glass of wine soda and some 'boli on the couch?  Don't mind if I do!
Now if I could only perfect my own theme song....but that's for another night, I guess :-D
