This month, my Fly on the Wall post has this theme:
All the answers you shouldn’t need to know:
No, if you call me on my cell when I’m driving back from the store because you thought of something you want, I will not turn around and go back and get it.
No, I did not buy myself a birthday card for you to give to me.
No, I won’t go back out and get one.
Yes, you do need to slam the door that hard every time you leave the house. How will I know you’ve gone if a picture doesn’t fall off of the wall?
No, I don’t want you sticking stickers onto your bedroom door. Just like I didn’t want you sticking those other 150 stickers to your bedroom door.
No, I don’t know where your (insert item here) is.
No, I didn’t buy more (insert item here) since you didn’t tell me it was gone.
Yes, the car will stop running if you don’t put gas in it from time to time.
Yes, you have to stop at that stop sign EVERY time.
No, I don’t believe you got a bad grade because your teacher is a jerk.
No, I don’t believe you were marked late for school because your teacher didn’t see you sitting there.
No, I don’t think you should play the odds and answer “C” to everything on your multiple choice test.
Yes, you do have something to lose.
Yes, I did make dinner again tonight.
Yes, that food on the plate sitting in front of you is what's for dinner.
No, you can’t trade your vegetable for a fruit snack, I don’t care if it has fruit in the name.
No, when I said to wear a ski hat when you go out in the snow I didn’t mean a baseball cap.
No, after having done the laundry today I certainly will not start the machine again to wash just the pair of socks you wore today because they’re the only pair you have left.
No, you can’t either.
No, your bedroom floor is not an extension of your closet.
Yes, I do think that’s too loud.
Yes, it’s still too loud.
No, leaving it that loud and using headphones isn’t an option.
NOTE: Serve with Homemade Marinara. My recipe is here: Homemade Marinara
1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough
3 TBSP butter, softened and mixed with 1/2 tsp garlic powder
approximately 20 slices of pepperoni
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
*Spray a piece of plastic wrap with no-stick spray. Wrap the frozen bread dough in the plastic wrap . Allow to just defrost but don’t let it rise.
*Spray a loaf pan with no-stick spray.
*Remove dough from plastic wrap and roll out until it’s just a little longer than the length of your loaf pan, and twice the width.
*Gently spread 2 TBSP of the softened garlic butter onto the dough.
*Spread out the pepperoni slices over the butter. Then sprinkle with the mozzarella , then the parmesan.
*Fold the sides in just slightly, then roll up the dough.
*Place the loaf, seam side down, in your loaf pan, cover with the plastic wrap and set aside to rise (should take approximately 4 – 5 hours).
*Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the plastic wrap from the loaf pan.
*Bake bread for 30 minutes.
*Remove from oven. With a knife, gently melt the rest of the garlic butter over the top of the loaf.
*Remove from pan, slice and serve.
