Work Sucks Calzones {What's for Dinner? 2/5/2010}

CALZONES!

These were extremely delicious and exactly what I needed after a HELLACIOUS day of work. Like, for real yo.

/Begin work rant: I love my job itself but the politics and bullsh!t just get to me sometimes. Working in marketing is like being the redheaded step child. If things go to sh!t, blame the marketing department for not doing enough to get the word out. If things go well, don't give any credit to marketing whatsoever because it was clearly ALLLLL just "luck"...or some sh!t like that.

"We're not doing well. It's marketing's fault!!" Uhhhhh no. Maybe, just MAYBE the fact that you're not doing well has more to do with the fact that the event you planned is overpriced and NOT APPEALING to people. Ya think maybe that has something to do with it since this is the 3rd year in a row that this event has not done well? Hmmm??? Yeah....I do.

And for the record, I'm a perfectionist. I expect a LOT out of myself. I always have {just ask my parents what happened the first time I came home with a B on my report card...meltdown city....which then turned out to be a mistake on the part of the teacher and I actually had earned a 93. But I digress.} So when people tell me I'm not doing my job well, that is like the ultimate insult to me. I don't handle it well....in fact, I cry. Yeah....embarrassing and unprofessional, I know this. But that's just the way I am.

Now go hug someone from your marketing department and thank them for all that they do. I'm sure they need it.

Oh and, not to mention, my boss is crazy. That makes things....ummmm fun? I'm not going to say much more on that subject because this is a public blog. But yeahhhh....whackadoodle.

/End work rant.




Anywayyyyy, Alex made the dough for these calzones in the bread machine using this recipe. We give this dough recipe two thumbs up! It was crispy but tender at the same time and just really good. We will probably just use this recipe in the future for pizza dough because it was so good.

We filled our calzones with mozz cheese, turkey pepperoni & sauce. {I insisted that calzones aren't supposed to have sauce inside them but Alex ignored me and put it in anyway. In the end, I actually like them better with sauce on the inside! So mark one point on the board for Alex!}

And after eating a HUGE calzone for dinner, 3 glasses of wine and a wonderful husband who let me rant about my no good, horrible, awful day I felt muuuuuccchhhh better. :)
