Angie Gets Organized

This is why I'm trying to get organized...for my family. I am a strong believer in family meal time, but I know that without a little planning, it will be hard to keep us all together. It will also be easier to spend money foolishly on prepared foods or fast food. I love trying out new recipes, so this is my site to pass on recipes, while also organizing them into a meal plan. I hope it helps you to keep your family together. I would love to hear what others are having for dinner, or see a new recipe or two! Feel free to leave me some feedback in the comments section...at least then I would know someone is reading this!

It's not gourmet...just good food!

Homemade Hot Pockets

It is so easy to create your own hot pockets at home, and much cheaper!! Plus, you can make them to suit your family's tastes and you know EXACTLY what is going into them! Our family prefers the pizza flavored ones, but just about any cooked filling will do. Go to the hotpocket area in the frozen food section for inspiration!
These will also freeze well for quickie lunches later. Just wrap the frozen hotpocket in a paper towel, and microwave on 50% power for 1-2 min.

1 package jumbo biscuits (in a can)
Pizza filling: pizza sauce, cheese, mini diced ham cubes, pepperoni...or whatever you like!
Breakfast filling: eggs, cheese, meat (diced up ham, bacon, or sausage)

1. Flatten the biscuits to a 5 inch round circle.
2. Place about 2 Tbsp. of filling in center of biscuit. Fold sides of biscuit over each other, and then tuck the ends up, pinching closed. **If if is easier to fold, you can also fold it empanada style (place filling on one side of biscuit, fold biscuit in half over filling, and crimp shut with tines of a fork).
3. Sprinkle some Italian seasoning or sesame seeds on top of biscuit before baking.
4. Bake according to directions on side of biscuit can.
