Once the Elders wake up, I am tossing together a stir fry with chicken.

I made some dough filled balls but not satisfied on how the dough balls came out. I’m new to dough and do not understand fully the intricacies of making and cooking.

Basically I made a basic pizza dough from scratch. After the rise I made 30g balls. Then I flattened them out like a mini pizza, filled middle, and pulled up over the top, flipped over, egg washed, and baked.

Fillings were combos of:

Mini hamburger, cheese (yellow or mozzarella), bacon

Lomo Saltado leftover from last night

Chili from the other day along with fresh grated sharp cheddar

Just cheese (cheddar or mozzarella)

Mozzarella and bacon

For baking I did 360 degrees. After 20min I didn’t think they were cooking right and kicked it up to 390 for another 12min.

I feel like the inside dough was not cooked. I think 360 was maybe too low. I wound up with crunchy outside and undercooked inside dough.

Also although i cook bacon to crunch first after baking some pieces came out soft and chewy like they were boiled or something. Strange.

I made a batch of pork fried rice for dinner tonight. It was supplemented with an egg roll.

I made some chicken salad, which we had in sandwiches. Mine were on Wasa crisp rye bread and DH's were on toasted whole grain and sunflower seed bread. Turned out really good.

I had another batch of one of my tomato dishes, since I had a good amount of tomatoes, for maybe the last time; they are still coming in slowly, though I do have a lot of small green tomatoes...time will tell.

I always like using shells for dishes like this, since they trap those bits and pieces of ingredients.

A lot of leftovers there!

pepper, you cook for an army. A man after my own heart!

Day Two of leftovers. Another round of garden salads, then we finished the knock-off chicken Marsala - this time I also cooked up a little bit of noodles. Himself ate up all of the sauteed Brussels sprouts, while I finished the sauteed Swiss chard. Still too full to think about any kind of dessert, but the peaches on the counter are crying out for a bit of ice cream...
