Pockets and a date for a snipping

December 16th is the big day for my Kale man to become a new man.
How sad.
Yet happy at the same time.
 We had the consultation for Kale's circumcision and officially set a date. 
If you are wondering why we haven't had this done already you can read about it here.
Operation potty training is on an official halt.
The doc told us that it would be smartest to wait till after the operation to start potty training to make it easier for Kale.
Here's to hoping it all goes well.
He's going to be miserable for a little while, but he's a tough little cookie.
He's been poked and prodded more than some people have in their entire lifetime.
I have no doubt that he will bounce right back from the surgery and be his crazy/sweet little self before we know it. 
Onto pockets.
I love this dinner because:
A- It's quick and easy
B- Everyone always loves it
C- It can be paired with pretty much whatever you have sitting in the pantry.
What you will need:
1 LB. hamburger meat
2 cans crescent rolls
1 small can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder or to taste
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or garlic salt, or to taste and is also optional
1/4-1/2 onion finely chopped 
(my recipe calls for half of an onion but I don't like things too oniony so I use a fourth, you decide how much you want and go from there)
cheddar cheese
-Preheat oven to 375
Combine hamburger meant and onion in pan and cook till done.
 While meat is cooking get out crescent rolls and put on cookie sheet in squares.
Each crescent roll package will make four squares, pull apart at vertical and horizontal lines, not diagonal, like you would if you were making rolls.
Pinch the diagonal lines shut with your fingers to hold them together and keep food from falling out.
Once meat is cooked through, add chili powder, and tomato sauce.
Also if you are using garlic powder/salt add it now. 
The garlic powder was something that I decided to add to the recipe this time around and it came out really good, but if you don't have any or don't want to add it, it will still be yummy.
Put meat onto one side of squares and top with cheese, then fold over the other side of the squares and seal edges so it comes out looking something like this
See where I didn't pinch the diagonal lines shut all the way? It's not critical so don't go crazy.
Once all pockets are sealed put in the oven for 10-12 minutes or till the dough is golden brown and your done.
There you have it, warm and cheesy pockets, perfect for dinner when it's getting cold outside.
