leftovers FTW!

Yesterday, as you might know, was Easter and in the fine Parks tradition we hosted Undead Easter complete with Zombie Strippers! and too much ham. After ingesting my share of the zombie strippers ham, I headed over to the Britney Spears concert for what I was calling "the gayifaction of my unborn son." And just in case the concert wasn't enough to make the baby gay, I bought this:

Today I was faced with leftovers for lunch and since I wasn't feeling like ham with mac and cheese again, I dug around in the fridge until I came up with an idea: Gourmet Hot Pockets. Oh hell yeah.

Take some Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough and flatten it out into rectangles. Layer ham, brie, and more ham on one rectangle. Put a bit of mustard on another crescent rectangle and put that on top of your fillings. Pinch the sides closed and bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 375 degrees.

I'm not a huge ham fan, but dear god this was good. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if I had some sliced apples to put inside. I do have apricot jam, so maybe I'll try that instead of the mustard next time. And by next time, I mean tonight for dinner.


  1. Zombie Strippers?

    This is the LAST time I miss Undead Easter.

  2. I do wonder how my son might have been different if I had played less Aretha, Cat Stevens, and Pogues. Why did I not play more Bee Gees, for example?

  3. I'm sooo happy you put up belly pictures on flickr!!!yay!!!!!

  4. Ooh, that does sound good. YOU ARE A LEFTOVERS GENIUS!
