Grocery shopping success! Total = $116 and I bought a bunch of extra non-food items (mascara, potato peeler, gum, etc) too! YEA! I love being under budget AND excited about yummy food for the week!
So, you maybe be wondering, what the heck are “bierocks”? They are German thing. And a Kansas thing actually. I had them as a kid–a family friend shared them with us, though I am also German (Maiden name “Arpke”) and from Kansas (WOOT!) Apparently, as I read online (who knows how accurate the source was though) German immigrants brought bierocks over to Kansas.
So back to the “what-the-heck-are-they” question? They are kinda like the original hot pocket–a sweet dough wrapped around beef, cabbage, onion, and cheese mixture. I am not a huge cabbage fan but I really like it in these. I am going to tweak the allrecipes recipe (above) and add a few other goodies. I hope they turn out! As I recall, they are delicious left over and the recipe makes a ton so we are having them two nights this week. Like I said, I hope they turn out! I am going to make my own dough from the calzone recipe--with a little extra honey thrown in for sweetness.
Plus, tomorrow I am super excited for Sunday Breakfast–I’m making Egg and cheese puffs and cinnamon rolls (wack-a-can. Love ’em). My BFF Candace is coming over for breakfast and then to church with us. AND we are going to go see “The Help” tomorrow afternoon! Should be an awesome day!
