Doesn't anybody like Stromboli?  Or maybe you don't know what it is!

recipeAccording to Wikipedia, Stromboli is a small island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the north coast of Sicily.  It is also a type of "turnover" typically filled with "pizza toppings" such as various meats and cheeses.

The stromboli pictured to the left, is similar to the strombolis I would get as a teenager down at the Long Branch, New Jersey boardwalk.

So, why I am writing a post about stromboli??  I've been posting various recipes in preparation for Super Bowl Sunday.  Every post gets a few comments, some more than others.  The stromboli post on Tuesday got ZERO!  Why is that?  don't you like stromboli?

 

 

This week I featured FIVE Super Bowl Party Recipes.  If you are interested in having another look (and maybe posting a comment on the stromboli recipe) here is the list:

(Stromboli photo compliments of Wikipedia.  Does't it make you hungry?)

Hi Lottie~ You are probably right, Friday night is good time to consider recipes for the weekend!

Hello Ellen~ Hope you can find one in Oregon, otherwise, you'll have to read the recipe and try it make it yourself!

Stomboli is usually too good... gotta stay away from anything that tastes good for a while... :)

Thank you for the Christmas Card that you sent this past Christmas.  That was a very thoughtful gesture.

Hi Judi~ I'm not strong-willed enough to stay away from good food.  Good luck!  It was my pleasure to send the card.

Hello Shar~ I've tried 3 out of the 5 that I posted this week.  I think they are all good!

I've had stromboli just a couple of times as it isn't served very many places that I know of in the Houston area.  But it really is good and I do order it if it is on the menu.  I remember the home inspector that brought it to an office luncheon probably 15 years ago, which was the first time I ever heard of it!  Funny thing about posts, I did one that I was just so impressed with myself over -- it has a cute little graphic of a house and it was the first time I had been able to successfully get a video to work.  So I was thinking it was really cool . . .  you guessed it -- 0 comments.  Kinda funny.

Although I do like pizza I have not acquired a taste for strromboli; others in my family love it though. Hope you enjoy the Superbowl.

Hi Joni~ Sorry, it's not on the menu.  I'm making Sante Fe Chicken tonight-a double batch as a matter of fact. 

Morning Debbie~ As a matter of fact, I'm not.  I really don't like to cook very much, but I do like to eat!

Hi Joyce~ I have found stromboli at Old Chicago, a chain restaurant.  Do you have them in Houston?

Hello Teral~ That's intersting, you like pizza, but not stromboli.  Hmmm.  I am really not that interested in the game.  It's more about getting together with friends, oh and watching the cool commercials!

Hi Donna, I'm not aware of Old Chicago being in Houston, but there could be one (some) I don't know about.  I really don't remember where I had it here, I just know I see it once in awhile on the menu and will order it.
