Ground Beef, Turkey, and Cheese Gozleme (Calzones)

One of the side-effects of blogging with baby is that I don’t have as much time to make food. I am not the fastest person in the kitchen, and I think blogging helped speed me up a bit. I needed to be able to take pictures while cooking in a reasonable amount of time. Sure, my pictures were sometimes rushed or blurry, but I did okay. Usually, I could even take multiple pictures of a step and pick the best one. Well, nowadays I don’t always remember to even take a picture for a step, or there just isn’t time. Maybe we’re running late for dinner (not an issue with adults, but it is with a set dinner/bedtime routine for a toddler!), so I am rushing the food-making process, or my hands are dirty and I would need to stop, wash up, take a picture, dirty my hands again, wash up, etc. and I decide it isn’t worth it, or I just forget. Today’s recipe was more the dirty hand issue. Making dough recipes means flour gets everywhere. We had an ant outbreak this summer, and so I’ve been trying to be extra careful of where flour and other food particles end up in the kitchen. (Although, both sets of neighbors had ants really bad last year, and we didn’t have any, so I guess it might have just been our turn. Sigh.)
