MIL said it was fine to share recipe!Ingredients:Dough:-4 cups flour-1 tsp salt-1/3 cup olive oil thats meant to be a third!-1/2 cup cold water and thats meant to be a half!-4 eggs

Filling:-1/4lb supresatta sliced thin and cut into small pieces

-1/4lb proscuitto cut into small pieces

-1/2 a piece of pepperoni sliced and cut into small pieces

-1lb ricotta

-7 large eggs

-1/2lb cubed mozzarella

-3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley-1 cup romano cheese

Directions:I dont have the recipe to make the dough, MIL said that “everyone knows how to make dough, just put the ingredients!” I dont know how to make dough but hopefully you guys will!!! When I told her this, she let out this big sigh like she was terribly dissapointed in me!!! Mix ricotta, mozzarella and romano cheeses in a bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add all chopped meats to cheese mixture, along with the parsley and blend well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Line the bottom of a 10 inch pie plate with half the dough; pour in the filling and top with the other half of the dough mixture. Make a small eggwash to brush over the top of the crust. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, then reduce temperature down to 350 degrees for about an hour or until the top of the pie is golden brown. MIL said this recipe could probably make two pies, and that they keep very well.   Share on twitterShare on facebookShare on emailShare on favorites 10-15-2010, 03:25 PM   #15minniebethI count on yall to keep me up to date ;Im ok going up, just cant go down…  Join Date: Feb 2006Location: columbus, ohioPosts: 7,463Awesome, Katieinwonderland!

Toe Strap

Take a strand of yarn measuring 1 yard in length. Take a darning needle and poke needle through sole (all three layers) and back up through the sole (all three layers) and pull the strand of yarn so both ends of the strand are even, giving you two equal pieces. Then take these two pieces and tie a knot at the base of sole to keep the yarn from moving. Take each strand and Ch 14 then tie off. After making the Ch attach a darning needle to the tail of  the ch strand and sew to the sole in shown manner, toward the heal of the sole.
