I remember when my kids first discovered the pockets in their pants around the age of two. They were absolutely obsessed with finding things to put in them. Stones, crayons, worms, frogs - you name it - if it could be shoved inside the pocket of their denim overalls, they put it in there. It is just a natural response to a pocket I guess - if you have it - you should fill it.
I will admit that I am a girl obsessed with pockets too. I've been persuaded to buy more than one dress because of the presence of pockets. I only buy jeans with perfectly positioned, unadorned pockets and I'm super picky about my pocket book. You probably think that since pockets are so important to me, that they serve an important function in my life. Ironically, I hardly ever use my pockets to hold anything except my hands when I need a place for them when I don't know what else to do with them. If you find yourself in awkward situations as often as I do, you know the comfort that a pocket can bring. 🤷🏻♀️
So what pockets do I like even more than pockets in my clothes? Pizza pockets. Calzones are essentially large pockets of pizza dough stuffed with the meats, vegetables and cheese and baked until golden brown. There are as many ways to stuff a calzone as there is to stuff a pocket in your overalls. I've blogged several different versions of calzones but this Buffalo Chicken Calzone is different from the other ones that I've made.
