Monday Night Football Menu

Every Monday my husband gets together with the guys in our neighborhood for Monday night football.  They rotate houses and everyone brings their own beer while the host provides a snack (usually wings.) I use this time to try out new recipes as I don't like to make any new desserts unless I know I will have lots of people over to eat them. I have no self control!

The menu:
BBQ Chicken Calzone
Pepperoni Calzone
Veggie Calzone
Skillet Cookie

My husband was in charge of the wings and the pizza dough but I fixed up the rest.  I found both the calzone and skillet cookie recipes on Pinterest.  I have tried out the calzones before but this time I gave BBQ chicken a try.  It was super easy.  I put two chicken breasts in a crock pot with a chopped onion and BBQ sauce and left it to cook all day.  By the time I was ready to make dinner the chicken had fallen apart and made a perfect calzone filling.

When it was time to make the calzone I flattened the dough and shaped it into a rectangle.  After that I took the BBQ chicken mixture and put it down the center of the rectangle and topped that with cheddar cheese.

After the mixture was put down the center, I cut the dough into 1 inch strips and started folding the dough over to make the appearance of a braid.  I then rubbed some olive oil on the top and sprinkled them with cornmeal.

In addition to the BBQ chicken, I also made a veggie and pepperoni calzone.  These are so easy to make and will impress your guests.  The first time I made these I followed this tutorial.

For dessert I made a skillet chocolate chip cookie that I found on the pink and blue blog.  It was so yummy and easy.  I will definitely be making it again!
