Our new favorite snack/dinner

Well it started out by asking the family the usually 3:00 question....."What's for dinner guys?"

Actually I was making the grocery list and trying to come up with something new to make. My husband answered "Runza's" and I said huh? He proceeds to tell me that his mom made them when he was younger and tries to remember what's in them. It sounded like a calzone to me, but after a quick google search I repeated the ingredients to him and we had a winner. I made them the next night and the whole family loves them.

So, I'll pass them on to you for your next dinner creation. Actually they work really well for afternoon snacks or food on the go because you can just pick them up and eat em. No dishes required, but I would suggest a napkin!
Runza - Originated in Russia in the 1800's and it means a filling stuffed into dough.

This is what you'll need:

1 lb ground beef
1/2 lg onion minced
1/2 head of cabbage slice thin
salt, pepper, garlic powder
the recipes I found called for yeast dough but I used 1 lg package Rhodes frozen dinner rolls

Remove the rolls from the packaging and place them on a microwavable plate, "defrost" them for about 45 seconds on power level 3. Just long enough to get them workable. You will be rolling these out flat and filling them.
In a skillet brown the beef, onion and seasonings. When it's cooked thru and the onions are tender drain the fat off. Return it to the skillet and add all of the cabbage, cooking it until it's tender. Remove from the heat.
Sprinkle a cutting board or your kitchen counter with flour. Using a rolling pin roll out your now thawed rolls. I use one roll to make take along snacks and I use two rolls for dinner size portions. If you use just one, place a few heaping spoon fulls onto the dough and pinch them closed at the top. If you use 2 rolls place a large amount of filling onto one and cover with another then pinch around the edges to seal it. Place them on a baking sheet a few inches apart. Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Enjoy!!!! Remember this is just a basic recipe. You can add any ingredients you like.

Back in the Work Force......

And hating it!

Yes folks, I got a job. A job that I thought I would love, a job that I was missing all these years, a job that pays an actual paycheck! I love the work and I miss having stuff to do that makes me feel important, there is only one problem. I hate my boss. I get along well with everyone, or so I thought. This woman is horrid. She is the most unorganized, scatter brained, controlling bitch I have ever met. There I said it. She is so obnoxious that every time she opens her mouth or even comes to the front of the office I want to punch her in the face!!! That's how much this woman annoys me. Sad huh? So now I have a decision to make. Quit after only being there for a week or give it more time? Somehow I don't think that she is going to get any better or I'm going to hate her any less. Should I just cut ties and not waste each others time? Seriously I could write pages of the crap she has pulled in the past 5 days I have worked with her, but I wont bore you. I guess I just need to make up my mind. SOON.

Until then, have a wonderful week :)
