Cheesy Garlic Pepperoni Bites

The fall season brings not only hunting into our picture, but also birthdays. A lot of birthdays. That is why when Grumpy wakes up with one of his headaches I am in despair because we have so much going on that we can’t afford for him to have a headache! My dad, Grumpy’s dad, his step-mom, my friend Jill and Christopher’s girlfriend Miriah all have birthdays between October and November. The last thing I want to deal with is an unhappy Grumpy with a major headache when we have a celebration to think about attending!

Excedrin® Extra Strength

That is why I always keep Excedrin® Extra Strength in our medicine cabinet. When Grumpy wakes up with one of his headaches, I take the bottle to his end table and sit it out for him to use as directed.  I need him to feel relief as soon as possible and often times he can feel that relief in less than 15 minutes, becoming a much less Grumpy character!

Excedrin at Walmart

I like to buy my Excedrin® Extra Strength pain reliever in my local Walmart, where it is convenient and easy to find!

Grumpy Tip for helping ease your headache!

Grumpy is well known to take his pain reliever and then lie on his back, on the floor with what he calls my “eye bra” on! (in other words, my sleep mask!) to try and help speed up his relief. He will put a pillow under his head and put his legs up on the couch. This position is always what seems to help him relax more when trying to relieve his headache!

Cheesy Garlic Pepperoni Rolls

Grumpy laid down to relax and I started getting ready for our family gathering, I got busy in the kitchen and started on my recipe that I was making for our celebration gathering.

Cheesy Garlic Pepperoni Bites

By the time I had these rolled up and baked, Grumpy was on his way to feeling better and had no excuse to not attend our little gathering!


Serve these up with a little of your favorite pizza or pasta sauce!

I piled these up on a plate and set out a warmed up bowl of pizza sauce to serve on the side for dipping. When these were done baking, Grumpy was up and feeling much better after setting aside some time to let the Excedrin® Extra Strength be his headache solution! Use as directed.

What tips do you have to help you relax and help bring fast relief for your headaches to ensure a meaningful moment in your life?

Be sure to try this recipe out for your next celebration!
