I have to say, I’m pretty excited to be sharing this Philly cheese steak pull apart bread with you. The idea of it is pretty ridiculous, so I knew it had to be made.
It’s so simple in concept and design, I can’t believe it pulled up no results when I Googled it. Now that is a good feeling. I was pretty certain this would be all over the place-one small victory for me.
Here’s to being the first—I think. If I’m wrong, well, I’m not sharing it with my family because I got all kinds of “This is awesome.”
And as of late, I’m on a winning streak with my son, Cole. In fact, the combination of the recent “awesome” after-school snack (and a few others to come this week) and a lot of DVR’d Food Network’s Chopped lately, he’s really gotten into food and cooking. He even does his own little Chopped game at home. So cute.
Sure it’s adorable and sure I love it—even when some of the creations are—well, interesting. But I eat it to keep him encouraged and curious about food. It’s working. He offered to make breakfast the other day, but then the morning came and he was my little cartoon-watching, 8-year-old who decided Team Titans was way more interesting than cooking up breakfast.
Baby steps. I’m optimistic. I mean hey, maybe soon he’ll offer to cook a weeknight dinner. And when that happens I’m hiding the TV remotes.
