Having Fun with Pizza Dough

I just want to say that Alton Brown's pizza dough recipe is the greatest foodstuff on the planet.

For reference:,1977,FOOD_9936_13823,00.html

Today, I took a swing at making calzones. Used the previously mentioned dough, and rolled it out into thin circles, about 10 inches in diameter. Fill with whatever you want, but nothing too wet (It'll boil out and give you steamed calzone dumplings).

For these lovelies, I used pepperoni, green pepper, anchovies, and provelone cheese.

Picture quality is shit, I know. They tasted great, though.

In other news, tonight Sam and I went exploring around town, looking to get a good scare in. Pics tomorrow.

Joining the African Penguin Mafia

So, after a couple months of wrestling, grunting, and crying, I've managed to completely shed my dependence on the Microsoft money-teat, and am now running my Gateway MT3422 Notebook completely on Ubuntu Linux. I'm loving it.
My gaming is better. Faster performance, faster launch-times, faster networking.

I can actually use my wifi card. The words Windows and Wifi should never be used together, unless in the sentence "Windows cannot use Wifi for shit." When I used windows, I used to have to toggle buttons, reassign ip addresses, flip switches, and pray to corn goddesses just to get a single connection. Ubuntu- first try, connected, full strength, great speeds.

I'm liking this penguin. I could get used to being his friend.

Oh! New food on the way. I've got some wicked pizza and calzone recipes to show off. Check back often!
