I screwed up a little with today’s prompt because I thought “TV” was included. Whoops. Okay, so I was thinking of something to do with food in a film/book/movie that made me laugh. The first thing that came to mind was the calzone episode of Seinfeld. Bwahaha! Because I started laughing at the memory of it, I knew I had to make a Not Quite Costanza’s Calzone.
It’s called Not Quite, because George Costanza’s calzone had eggplant, pepperoni and cheese. And an irritating boss. I had none of those but my Mum gave me some leftover Tourlou (really roll that r!) yesterday, which is a Greek dish of slow oven roasted vegetables, similar to a briam. Mum used potatoes, carrots, red capsicum, onion and mushrooms:
I chopped up the Tourlou and used it as the calzone filling, along with some baby spinach and one leftover zucchini fritter Mum had made. I had a bit of a Costanza moment (which includes a disappointment quickly followed by a high pitched angry shriek) because it started raining when I went outside to photograph the calzone. So up the top there is my calzone, all propped up by the lounge room window, looking out at the rain.
