Thanks ladies, and Andy, I really had fun with that one.

Kayelle, it is normal buttercream (chocolate cappuccino) and I piped it with a "grass" tip. It was a lot of piping for my arthritic hands, but it was worth it! Oh, I also carved the cake rather than using the teddy bear pan. I have been practicing carving and even though I have the pan, I wanted to do it myself.

LP, that looks like it would be a fun "lawn" to mow my way through! Just like my little backyard Bun-Bun does with my...clover. Not much of a lawn there...

Hey GG, ran across another idea to get you through zucchini season. How about oven baked zucchini chips? I've never made them, but every time one of my FB friends posts a photo, I drool.

That sounds interesting. Thanks.

Playing with my spiralizer today. I bought it last winter but haven't used it till today because I was so sick. I used it on garden zucchini and farmers market carrots for the salad I'm making for my neighbor.

Bought a boxed, take-and-bake Pizzeria Uno pizza at Market Basket today. Uno's has some 'splainin' to do...

CG, I might buy a boxed pizza every five years or so. But I think you have just made it 10 years or so. That is the most terrible pizza I have ever seen. What were they thinking? You should let MB know about it. That pizza is way below their standards for a local company provider.

Addie, it was a take-and-bake UNO's pizza that is sold at MB, and probably a lot of other grocery stores. We've bought them before and never had any problem. Cooked on our pizza stone, it's usually hard to tell the pre-made from the restaurant. If you look at the photo, it's easy to see that the problem was in manufacturing. There is NO sauce on one side of the dough, and never did have any. I'll send an email off to Uno's tomorrow. We'll see how they answer.

Do let us know what they say. I will be looking forward to the reply.
