Gouda Football

We watched the Patriots game over at J & G's and we brought this wonderful oozing bundle of joy.

Crescent-Wrapped Gouda

Crescent-Wrapped Gouda Ingredients
7 ounces round natural Gouda cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 8 oz. can crescent dinner rolls

Instructions for Crescent-Wrapped GoudaHeat oven to 350 degrees. Cut cheese round in half crosswise to form 2 circles; remove from wax. Separate dough into 4 rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. Place one rectangle on top of a second; repeat with remaining rectangles, making two double-thick rectangles. Press each into a 6-inch square; place cheese circle in center of each. Pull corners of dough to top center of cheese. Press dough tightly against cheese. Twist dough in center to seal, twisting off excess dough. Press seams to seal. Repeat to make second gouda wrap. Press out excess dough. With canape cutter or paring knife, cut out decorative shapes; place on top of each gouda wrap. Brush with beaten egg. Place 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 mintues before serving.

Summing it all up, I took the Crescent and wrapped it around the gouda and put it in the oven until it started to brown and ooze. I did not use an egg, but I'm sure it adds more to the crust.

Just cut with a knife and dig in. Some people like to use crackers, but i don't see the need with the crust as a "holder"!

We had a very nice weekend. Friday we stayed in and rented Superbad and I was fast asleep by 10pm. Saturday we went to the gym and then ran around to Costco, Target, Best Buy and two Circuit Cities. Why you may ask, Music Guy talked me into buying a new TV. Which really was needed. The TV we had was one I got when I was a Sophomore in High School. I really do think it out weights me. This is the best time of year to buy one as the Super Bowl is coming and they drop the prices and they go back up the Monday after.

Speaking of Super Bowl, Lets Go Pats! It was a fun game to watch with a group of fun people. What was not so fun, the game after. My poor Packers, not even "poor" I'm a bit use to seeing Brett Favre throwing an interception in a big game. It sucked and I was not happy.

Sorry for the lack of post, with everything going on last week and just the stress I've put on myself when the weekend came I had no energy to be creative. I'll kick that!

Some TV shows I'm all about:

Snoop Dogg Father Hood
One Tree Hill
Biggest Loser
Cashmere Mafia
Cheers (I never watched it nor watched reruns, I am now though, I heart TV Land)
Sex and the City (again never had HBO, reruns)

All of my other shows are reruns now.

Speaking of Sex and the City, does anyone have a good place where I can rent the DVD's. I really think I'm going to be a big fan but I do not want to spend $200 to catch up. I've been DVRing it but it is always all over the place.

That gouda thing looks amazing!

CBM said...

Congrats on your new job, K! I can't wait to hear all about it.
BTW, if you want to borrow SATC Season 1, I happen to have it on DVD.

Cloggsy said...

Hey hey. I do blockbuster online and they have all of the SATC dvds. Plus, they deliver right to your door, so no running out to return and no late fees. Sweet!

Kimba, I watched Sex and the City by signing up for Netflix. It is great because you get two or three discs at a time and you can bang out a bunch of episodes at a time. Also, they aren't "modified" for regular tv so nothing is cut out!

Britt said...

Yum, I love Gouda. Blockbuster online is a great and you can return and exchange at the store if need be.

Beth G. said...

The gouda looks great-maybe I'll break that out during the Superbowl next weekend-yea! I used to use Netflix when I lived in San Francisco and I loved it, super easy and tons of flicks!

Kimba Rimba said...

Thanks guys, i will check out both Blockbuster and Netflix, i'm new to them so i needed this push!

Donna said...

You can also make the gouda with brie and Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheets. You will love that too!
We actually discovered Sex and the City right when it ended and worked our way through all the seasons. My husband, the English professor, loved it and I believe we spent about a month or two going through them all. They are fun and smart!
I am surprised you don't like "The Real Housewives." although it is almost over. And Project Runway? Tim Gunn is fun.
Yes, so sad about the Packers. My Wisconsin relatives are very sad and we are too!

Southern Sugar said...

sounds yummy. i'm making this one. i recently attended a bridal shower where they had done sorta the same thing with cream cheese. Congratulations on you new job!

J said...

I actually got them from the library! My library didn't have them but you can have them sent over from other libraries. I had to wait a little for a few seasons but it was way better than getting them from the video store because I could keep them for longer and they were free!

J said...

If the Pats were playing the Packers in the super bowl, who would you have cheered for?

Kimba Rimba said...

J, i would have cheered for the Pats, though i would not have let my family know.

I've put way more time into the Pats the past 5 years, ya know?/!

TCP said...

That looks so delish!

And congrats on the new job too!
