It's almost GAME TIME!

Okay, not really . . . we have a day or two, but I will say that I have to start planning what we are going to eat during the big game.  (Oh...and for those of you who aren't into football and don't live in either Pittsburgh or Green Bay...I'm talking about the Super Bowl!)


I also wanted to use this post to try out a new site called Say Mmm ~ and link up over at I'm an Organizing Junkie to try to snag some prizes!


Two of the items I'm planning on making for the game were served at the latest Mommy Group we had in January.  There is a kid friendly one and one that is more for the adults...here they are - w/printable grocery lists!


Pizza Pinwheels


Ingredients ~


1 (8oz) can of refrigerated crescent roll dough - if you can find the sheets that aren't perforated they work great!
2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
24 slices of pepperoni
Pizza or Spaghetti sauce for dipping


Directions ~


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
Pinch the 8 crescent roll triangles into 4 rectangles. (skip if you found the sheets)
Layer the cheese and pepperoni (about 6 slices on each rectangle or use all of them if you found sheets)
Roll tightly lengthwise and slice into pieces
Arrange on baking sheet and bake in preheated oven until golden brown, around 12 minutes.
Enjoy with the pizza sauce for dipping!
