Let it show for the record that I in no way hold Chebe Gluten Free Bread responsible for the debacle I have created in my oven.

Let me set the scenario for you all…  Hubby has just walked in the door at 6:30 p.m. from usual gridlock commute from hell.  He’s hungry.  He does not want another Hot Pocket for dinner.  Crap.  Thing 1 and Thing 2 are eating an oh-so-nutritious dinner of bow tie pasta, butter, and Parmesan cheese.  Oh, and Kixx cereal.  Finally, at 7:15 p.m. I decide to cook something for myself.  I’ve been reading blog posts about good results with Chebe pizza crusts and decided to give it a whirl.

This is where it all began to fall apart.

The kids were completely off their rockers tonight and the screeching was beginning to pierce my (tiny) brain.  I think I must have read just part of the directions on the back of the package in between getting milk cups, a napkin, and a pickle (in no apparent order) for my family.

So I mixed up the ingredients for the pizza crust and happened to see that you can make calzones from this dough!!  I used to love, love,  love calzones, so I decided to make one for dinner.  It was only AFTER I put the calzone in the oven that I took the time to read ALL of the directions.  Apparently, I was supposed to separate the dough into four equal parts and make four calzones.

Um, I made one gigantoid calzone.  It was ugly and pretty much exploded in my oven.

I just had to take a picture to share because this, my friends, is the ugliest meal I’ve ever made.  What a train wreck…

On a positive note, the calzone was edible!  Albeit a bit chewy since the crust was like 12 inches thick, but after I sawed through it with my steak knife, it filled my tummy just fine.

Go ahead, laugh…you so know you want to!
