Calzone recipes are good for a lot of things (like filling hungry bellies), but they were especially handy last week. I was traveling for work for a few days. It was exciting because it was my first business trip and I felt super official plus I was going to Washington and got to see a few friends while I was up there. Whenever I’m gone though, I worry about my boyfriend. It probably doesn’t help that one time I was away he ended up in the hospital getting stitches after tripping on a dog toy (don’t worry, he’s perfectly fine aside from a few scars). Someone tell me I’m not alone in worrying about things at home while traveling! How do you deal with worry?
In preparation for being gone, I always make sure there are lots of easy meals for him to prepare himself. One less thing I can worry about! Usually I buy frozen meals or make things he can just reheat in the microwave really easily. This time I tried something new.
I made calzones the night before and half-baked some of them. I then froze them so he could stick them in the toaster oven or regular oven and have fresh baked calzones. I fully baked some as well (so we could have them for dinner) and so he could microwave them if he was feeling extra lazy.
