Aurora's Chicken Pepperoni

Today the land is still, as the freezing rains fall across the snow, making travel stand still while the road men try to fight mother nature. How stupid is that, no one fights mother nature and wins. Still they are trying.

Raptor treads lightly as she breaks through the semi solid top layer of ice as she makes her way to her morning potty area. It was hard to get her to come in since (she is a husky) nothing spells heaven to her more than snow and ice. Luckily breakfast persuaded her to at least check out her options, and she returned in wet and cold. After some shaking, and two bath towels, she now lays asleep all curled up beside me as I type.

As with most days of heavy rain or snow I awoke with a headache so I won't be on line long. Tonight is the perfect time to curl up with a funny movie and what could be better than  watching "Seams like old times" and eating Aurora's Chicken Pepperoni. Yum! Since I couldn't find a recipe on line this is the one I created a long while back and my family loves. I hope you will try it.

Add the remainder of the sauce and a layer of pepperoni over entire dish and top with Parmesan cheese.
