 The Philly Cheesesteak gods came to me in a dream and asked if I would please come up with a bite sized version of the oversized sub. At first I thought, “that’s impossible.” But here I am with a recipe that’s sure to please. These Philly Cheesesteak pinwheels are full of all the same flavors, they’re just compacted into bite sized appetizers. I am a huge fan of peppers and onions but let me tell you, when they were cooking I could not stand the smell. I actually had to open the windows because the smell was making me sick. Isn’t it funny how the smell of things can bother you but the flavors taste amazing. It’s the same way with eggs for me. Not the most appetizing smell but I love eating them for breakfast.

 You could also use crescent rolls in place of the puff pastry, but I just used what I had in my refrigerator. These Philly Cheesesteak pinwheels would be perfect for a party or even a dinner appetizer. You can use whatever cheese you like, I went with a mozzarella/provolone blend. I suggest eating the pinwheels right away or within the hour. The longer they sit the more they dry out and no one likes a dry steak.

We started painting our living room this week and let me begin by just saying I painted half of the wall the wrong color. I was using up the sample paints we had bought for our first coat and I grabbed the wrong one. Fortunately the colors are very similar, I’ll just have to layer on another coat on that side of the wall. This is why my boyfriend shouldn’t leave me home alone with a bucket of paint. You live and you learn.
