Rueben Pizza

Rueben Pizza

 As promised, yet another Corned Beef recipe. This one is a simple and easy way to use left over Corned Beef from your St Patty’s Day Celebration.

Once again I cannot say enough about pizza…………I swear you can put anything on a pizza crust and have it come out tasty. After all pizza crust is bread, so any sandwich filling will make a great pizza. And who says pizza has to have tomatoes for the sauce…….mix it up sometimes , after all variety is the spice of life.

The Rueben Sandwich……….One account holds that Reuben Kulakofsky, a Lithuanian born grover, residing in Omaha, Nebraska, was the inventor.  Kulakofsky’s weekly poker  game was held in the Blackstone Hotel. The participants, who nicknamed themselves “the committee”, included the hotel’s owner, Charles Schimmel. The sandwich first gained local fame when Schimmel put it on the Blackstone’s lunch menu, and its fame spread when a former employee of the hotel won a national contest with the recipe.

Other accounts hold that the Reuben’s creator was Arnold Reuben, the German owner of the once-famous, now defunct Reuben’s Delicatessen in New York City.

Corned Beef Pizza

Whatever the origin, it’s a yummy sandwich. If you make the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner you are likely to have corned beef left over…………why not try a Rueben Pizza. Pizza crust with thousand island dressing ……no need for the traditional tomato base for this pizza. Topped with all the sandwich fixings, that left over corned beef ( you can buy deli corned beef and chop it up if you prefer), sauerkraut, and swiss cheese. I added onions……….because I like onions on a sandwich and on pizza…….you can leave them off if you prefer.

Try the Rueben Pizza……….before or after St Patty’s Day or any day you are craving a Rueben.

Auntie Anne’s Pretzels: Copycat Recipe

Auntie Anne’s Pretzels: Copycat Recipe

Adapted from Food Network & Yammies’s Noshery Pretzel Collage

Today was another freezing *#&%$#@ cold day. To cold for school. I must say that the beauty of working for a school, besides winter break, spring break, summers off, and a smattering of long weekends, is the occasional surprise day off. You know for a snow storm, or as was the case today a wind chill that would freeze you to the spot in a few seconds. Well yeah ……… I got to cook all day……..or should I say bake……..soft, chewy, warm buttery pretzels………sorry I lost my train of thought. Having the oven on all day……..I made a few other things…..stay tuned…….. took the chill off the house quite nicely.

Now I know we all have stories about these kinds of pretzels. The first was I ever had was at a mall. Tim and I visit Vegas frequently………….it is our favorite place in the world…….so far. We really aren’t world travelers…….we leave the world traveling to Tim’s identical twin brother Tom who currently resides in the Philippines. The last time we were in Vegas we had pretzels after a show……..Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club………if you are in Vegas do yourself a favor and visit the comedy club…………. the comedy and the pretzels were great!
