What's for dinner?

As I have mentioned before, I am working toward becoming prolific at cooking and am always on the lookout for new recipes. We made homemade pizza pockets for dinner tonight. I confess I cheated a bit by letting my bread machine mix and raise the dough for me. We, my husband and daughter, Lu Lu, rolled the dough and filled them with fresh mushrooms, green peppers, onions, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, ham, and olives. Lu Lu wanted to eat all the ingredients, even licked flour from her fingers. I then made my own pizza sauce, which is sooo tasty, and is used for dipping the pockets in. The side dish was a green salad with cherry tomatoes fresh from the garden and picked by my oldest daughter, who often requests that we change her name to Zelda. So we shall call her that here.
Pizza Sauce:
In a medium saucepan pour in one 15 oz. can of tomato sauce; some chopped onion; 1 tsp. dried basil, 1tsp. sugar, 1 tsp dried oregano; one clove of garlic, minced; and ¼ tsp. pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or till onion is tender.

That sounds really yummy, and I am impressed even if your bread machine did some of the work! Sometimes we make easy pizzas by rolling out refrigerated biscuit dough and the kids get to put their own toppings on - sauce, cheese and whatever else they want. Kristyn likes to put ham and pineapple on hers. They have fun doing this and it's easy and quick!

yummy. I tried making dough the other day and it didn't turn out very good. I need to try again. The calzones sound SO yummy!
