Today the bf and I went to the WV Three Rivers Festival Carnival. It was cute. Smaller than what I’m used to for a carnival, but hey, it’s a small town. What did I expect?
We weren’t really interested in the rides. It was a beautiful sunny day and we couldn’t spend it inside! Oh…and I wanted to get a fresh pepperoni roll. :3 Some of you may not know what a pepperoni roll is. I didn’t before I moved to the “Pepperoni Roll capital of the world” (they were invented here!). Here, Pepperoni Rolls are everywhere! In gas stations, grocery stores, on menus, in some man’s cart on the side of the road. Ok, maybe not in someone’s cart, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw that. Pepperoni Rolls consist of “a fairly soft white yeast bread roll with pepperoni baked in the middle. The pepperoni can take several forms: a single stick; several folded slices; or shredded or ground meat. During baking, spicy oil from the pepperoni suffuses the bread”. The Three Rivers festival had a pepperoni roll eating contest and a pepperoni roll bake off, so I figured it would be a good place to loose my pepperoni roll virginity.
And I figured right! OH MY, was that pepperoni roll good. My pepperoni roll is the one on the right. It was split and inside there was mozzerella cheese and a sort of chilli sauce. The bf’s is on the left. He only opted for cheese. Oh and those other things in his plate? Those are fried oreos. He wanted to try them. I had one, but didn’t really care for it.
Anywho, I love pepperoni rolls and can’t wait to take some down to my mom and sister in Memphis. I think they’ll like them too. in the meanwhile, Ill try not to eat too many of my new found love!
