My discovery of hand pies has made my life soooo much easier. They’re just so easy to make!
1. Cut crescent roll dough into 4 squares
2. Smoosh together the diagonal perforations.
3. Fill with whatever you want!
4. Fold over and crimp along the edges with a fork.
5. Cook for about 13 minutes at 375 degrees.
6. Let cool! <— Very important.
Once a week I make a whole ton of them, wrap them in a paper towel and tin foil and freeze them. It’s a super easy way to make sure your family never has the “there’s nothing to eat” excuse. They’re also so easy to reheat, just a couple minutes in the microwave, and so easy to take on the go, that they’ve completely stopped my whole family from eating fast food. Nice, right?! Depending on what you put in them, they can be healthier than fast food and at around $1.25 a serving, they’re certainly cheaper!
Here are some of my family’s favorites.
• Ham & Swiss
• Egg & Sausage
• Mozzarella & Pepperoni
• Roast Beef & Provolone
• Ham & Chicken with Swiss
You can put sauce in them (like marinara in the Mozzarella & Pepperoni and dijon mustard in the the Ham & Chicken with Swiss) but I’ve found that it can end up making them a bit soggy. If you really can’t live without the sauce and you’re like me and hate soggy bread, have no fear, they’re great for dipping!
I discovered Umba Box and I’m so excited about getting my first package in February!
For $25 a month you get a package with a couple handmade wonderfulnesses?! Sign me up! Well…don’t, because I already have. I know, I know, I’m supposed to be being frugal right now, but maybe this will help me not buy other things. It’s possible!
I’m in love! Songza is just about the best thing ever. It’s a website/app that has tons of different playlists. You can search by what it recommends for the time of day it is, activity, genre, mood, decade, etc. I highly recommend the We Are Young playlist. Passion Pit, Grouplove, Imagine Dragons, Temper Trap…It’s practically the only thing I’ve listened to all week.
