A first time lunch post

In over 130 posts, I have never posted three times a day, but I'm trying while I'm unemployed. I have a very productive morning so far. I did 3 loads of laundry, drafted a cover letter, and applied to one job. I hope that you are getting a lot done today too.

Around 11am I had a small snack of 1/2 serving of Genisoy Tortilla Chips and a few nuts.

With my snack I had some sparkling water and a few ounces of POM juice.

For lunch I had some leftovers. I had a layer of spaghetti squash with salt and pepper, baked tofu, a tomato, one piece of roasted polenta, and a small piece of vegetarian pepperoni roll that my fabulous husband made yesterday. I put all these items on a small appetizer plate. I love how eating on small plates make me feel like I'm eating so much more.

Because I didn't get to post about the vegetarian pepperoni roll we made for lunch yesterday, here are the photos and a brief recipe for this foodie masterpiece.
We started with whole wheat dough we bought at Trader Joe's.

When my husband was younger he worked at a pizza place, so he knows how to work with pizza dough. here is a picture of him laying out the dough that he rolled in some flour and corn starch.

Once the dough is placed out on the baking stone, Steve filled it with vegetarian pepperoni and some Trader Joe's cheese (which uses non-animal rennet).

Here is the filling all ready before the dough was rolled over. The left side is already filled and rolled.

Once the roll is closed up, brush it with some olive oil. We also sprinkled with some sesame seeds.

Here is the roll fresh out of the oven. We just baked it until it looked brown, maybe about 20 minutes.

See you later tonight after I coach Girls on the Run and go to Pilates.
Check out Run to Finish's giveaway for some YouBars and FoodSnob's giveaway for Holey Donuts which has been extended until March 17.

Oh my gosh that pizza roll looks delish! I used to get a pepperoni roll from a local pizza place all the time, I'll definitely have to try making it at home!

That pizza looks great!

My job cut down to 4 days a week, so I am off today.

I've made a few rules for myself so I don't veg out and not get anything done.

1. Don't watch tv
2. Make a list of what I want to get done
3. Kind of make a time line of when to get things done.

So far that's worked for me!

I've always wanted to try using pizza dough from the store, but I've been too scared:( Maybe I'll pick some up next time I go to TJ's--that pizza roll looks fabulous!

That pizza roll looks so good! I've never made anything remotely like that before and am very intrigued!
