It was my birthday, and I told the hubster to please, please…not buy me flowers…
So, of course, I got this…
It’s not that I don’t like flowers; I love them! But sometimes I feel like they’re just an easy way out for him to not have to think about what to buy me on special occasions.
I want him to be creative, I want him to think outside the box, I want him to surprise me… I want him to maybe get me some…
Well, that’s what I really want! I want calzones! I’ve been thinking about calzones for like, uhm…10 minutes. Which is a loooong time when you’re craving something, amirite?!
So, can someone please make me calzones??? It’s my birthday week.

Happy Happy Birthday, Sweet Lady!!! My birthday is on Halloween and I want the same things you do…lol! Enjoy celebrating and get a Calzone! xoxo
Happy early birthday to you!! Now I get your Instagram username! ?
Debbie Spivey says
LOL! The one and only!!! Thanks Angie!
Happy birthday to you as well, Debbie. Hope you have a lovely one.
??? to Debbie!
Happy Birthday Angie! I hope you get to have your calzone 😉 Awesome features this week!
Thanks, Antonia! It’s not too much to ask, right?! ?
Not at all 😉
Happy Birthday! You should not complain, at least you get a present.
That’s so true! I’m a little bit of a brat ? Thanks, Nadia! ?
Johanne Lamarche says
Happy Birthday Angie and may there be calzones in your very near future!
Thanks, Johanne! Now I know for sure it’ll happen! ?
Andrea Giang | Cooking with a Wallflower says
Happy Birthday, Angie! I hope you ended up with your calzone!!
I hope so too Andrea, thanks! Would you be interested in cohosting FF?
La Breithe Shona Duit! Happy Birthday to you! Those flowers are beautiful, Angie but I understand what you mean! I hope your husband gets you something else – outside the box! Love the features. The galette looks amazing and the fig and custard dessert rock.
Thanks, Maggie! I do appreciate the flowers but sometimes I wish for something else, haha… I know, I know…I’m a brat. Thanks for cohosting! ??
Definitely not! Flowers are lovely but if that’s what you mostly get you can definitely wish for something different!
I like the way you think, Maggie! ??
you’re welcome! Happy Birthday, Angie!
Julie is Hostess At Heart says
Happy Birthday Angie! Calzones for everyone I say! The flowers are so pretty. I love them too.
Thanks, Julie! ??
So glad to have been featured this week! Thanks Angie! I’m pretty happy about finally having an alternative to nuts for pesto. Living with someone who has nut allergies can often be a big pain…but at least now we can finally have pesto!!!
I might try your recipe, too! The last time I made pesto with pine nuts, I got pine nut syndrome. Yah I know, first time I heard it, too. But I was left with bitter taste in my mouth for days!
Happy birthday Angie! Well flowers are better than I get – I think after only about a year of being married I started getting nothing for my birthday. My husband sort of asked if we could just both not bother with each other…sort of…the upside is it saves me mulling over what on earth to get him but I agree a little creativity from him would be nice too 🙂 Anyway I haven’t got a calzone but I did bring a pizza I made earlier in the week, if that helps 🙂
Well, the way it works in my house is that I get a present and he’ll get a homecooked meal ? I’d be at my wits end too if I have to think of what to get him. He’ll be getting socks and ties every year ? Pizza works! Thanks, Caroline! ?
I like that deal, if only it worked here 🙂
Jasmine S. says
Happy birthday!! I hope you get all the calzones your heart desires!! 😀
Thanks, Jasmine! Lol, I might be regretting it later but yes, I hope the same too ?
Happy Birthday Angie! Those flowers are gorgeous, hope you get some yummy calzones coming your way soon! Cheers
Thanks, Shinta! Enjoy yourself at the fiesta! ?
Happy Birthday Angie! I hope you have a lovely weekend and all the calzones your heart desires.
Thanks, Hilda! Woohoo it’s Friday!! Btw can you cohost Nov 25? With Julianna?
Elaine @ foodbod says
Happy Birthday superstar!!!!! I hope you enjoyed your birthday xxx and have a greatness weekend xx
Elaine @ foodbod says
Greatness?? Where did that come from?!
From you, Elaine! ?? Thanks! ??
Happy Birthday, Angie! Will it help if I stuff this egg curry into a flatbread.. you may get some version of a calzone, right?! :p Hope you have a super year!
That works, Aditi, thanks! When I was in Texas, I had Bombay Pizza. It’s fusion Indian food and pizza. It was so delicious! ?
Sarah 'n Spice says
Happy Birthday!!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with calzones 🙂 xoxo
Thanks, Sarah! That would be the best weekend ever! ??
Julia Baurain says
Happy Birthday, Angie! I’d gladly make you a calzone. Or treat you to some deep dish Chicago pizza. Come on over! -Julia
Mmm…deep dish pizza! Lou Malnati’s? People mention that a lot ? I can’t remember the other place that I went to, but it was great! Now I feel like going to Chicago, great city! Thanks, Julia ?
Oh, Angie, The Happiest of Birthdays to you! And so funny, because I was thinking the other day as I came across a recipe how very long it’s been since I made Calzones!! I hope you got yours!
Thanks, Mollie! Do you have a good calzone recipe? I used to have a terrific one with Italian sausage and Swiss chards. Someone in Kansas, of all places, gave me the recipe. Now I can’t find it! But it was so good! I think it had hot peppers, too. It was the best calzone I’ve ever had! Oh well… This is why I now have a blog, lol! ??
Yes, I do!! It doesn’t “call” for hot peppers, but you could add it! I’ll email it to you…
Thanks, Mollie! ??
Laura @ Feast Wisely says
Angie – how I wish I got flowers from my hubby – even if they were an easy way out at least the thought and gesture was there! Happy Birthday ?
Aaw…I’m sure if you ask him, he will get you flowers. How can he refuse? You’re so sweet! Thanks, Laura!?
Laura @ Feast Wisely says
Let me try that and come back to you – I recall excuses about the cost of flowers!
Tell him they actually cost less than say…jewelry or a car or a trip somewhere or even dinner ??
Laura @ Feast Wisely says
Now Angie that is a very good point and I am going to use it as my persuasion tactic!
Ai @Ai made it for you says
Happy Happy Birthday, Angie!! The flowers are pretty… but I must admit I’d prefer a calzone too lol. I’ve never made one, but I could stuff a pita bread with some sauce, cheese, and whatever other fillings you’d like. Would that count??
Thank you so much for featuring my dessert!
That definitely counts! Thanks, Ai! I love your baked fig pastry, it sounds sooo…good! ??
Sadhna Grover says
Hi Angie, Happy Birthday dear.
Thanks, Sadhna! ?
Happy Birthday, Angie! My daughter always asks for calzones for her birthday dinner. I hope your sweet, flower-bearing husband takes you out for fabulous calzones too. (or makes them for you!) I personally think you should ask for jewels! 🙂 Thank you so much for the feature- Loved my “galette for one!” Hope you have a great Halloween too.
Thanks Josette! Your daughter clearly has good taste ? And no thanks, I won’t eat calzones that my husband makes; he set off the smoke alarm trying to cook me an omelet! Love that galette! ?
I felt bad presuming that he had to take you out for calzones! You never know. 😉
??? He can grill but that’s about it!
Happy birthday! I hope you do get those Calzones!
Thanks, Nell! Would you believe my husband went to 2 places and neither had calzones! I ended up with a Stromboli instead, but it was good! ?
Happy birthday too late! I hope you had lots of calzone whilst enjoying the lovely flowers! Am late again but a great party and I will mingle and enjoy myself! Happy birthday!!!! 🙂 xx
It’s never too late. Besides, don’t they say better late than never?! ?? I got Stromboli instead of calzone but I’m okay. It was very good! Plus I got lots of attention ? Thanks, Petra! ??
Am glad you had a good day and I think birthdays do stretch over a few days, it just makes sense! Stromboli sounds like a great birthday dinner! ?
Happy Birthday Angie. What a great weekend it was to celebrate your birth date. Those flowers are gorgeous, I hope you got your calzones too 🙂 Wishing you many many more wonderful birthdays to come.
Didn’t get my calzones!! I got Stromboli instead. It was good though so I was ok. But I’m craving this specific calzone I once had in Kansas. I may have to make it myself! Thanks, Loretta! ??
A very happy birthday to you Angie! My husband and you share the birthday week! Hope you had a great birthday!! I am with you about the flowers! Anything but the flowers for me!
Happy birthday Angie!! Hope you had a great birthday!! My husband too has birthday this week! Love the idea of Calzones!!?
Happy birthday to your husband!! Did you make him calzones? Lol ?? Thanks, Su!
Happy Birthday! Hope it was fun!
Thanks so much! ?
