Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Pizza BitesAnd before Andrew and I leave town for the weekend I wanted to leave you with a few extra pictures I've been drooling on . . .

Chaos in the Kitchen has Pizza Bites and this is only the first of the photos--the second one pretty much sends me over the edge into pure pizza bliss.

WikiHow has the instructions for making a plastic crane out of a drinking straw . . . just in case all you sculptors out there get bored while waiting for your burger to come at McDonald's.

Making a Bird out of a Plastic StrawYou've had ice cream cones, you've had waffle cones, now try Bread Cones from the Bread Blog. Oh the stuffing possibilities! Cream cheese, ham and chives, a bit of chicken salad or even green salad . . . too bad it's not water tight and you could take your tomato soup on the go!

Southern Plate promises Melt in Your Mouth Donuts (though to paraphrase the great Wimpy "I'd gladly pay you tomorrow for a donut today!").

The running joke around here is that someday Andrew is going to build a sailboat and sail around the world. I found a site where you can buy a wooden boat kit and build your own classic pirogue and I'm hooked. It's a great deal, though I bet the shipping to Alaska is tons more than they're advertising for the rest of the U.S.

After ShedWe have a shed in our backyard that we turned into a playhouse for the kids and while it's fine like that after I saw this shed on Shellterrific I'm already making plans for when the kids outgrow it. That baby is coming down and I'm building this . . . you can get the plans from the link on the website.

The Idea Room has instructions for building not only a mini Marshmallow Gun from PVC pipe (looks easy enough--the boys would love it) but the safety goggles to go with it. Because kids all over the country have lost eyes to a vicious marshmallow fatality. Though I love the idea I'm thinking my boys would prefer a big gun. "More Firepower" is the code word here.

And thank you again to those mentioning the ebook this past week:

The PVC marshmallow guns are pretty easy to make...and a lot of fun! Believe it or not, injury from a tiny, fluffy marshmallow IS possible. Especially if a great big teenaged boy blows a marshmallow from short range at his sister and she turns her face toward him at the wrong time. :) It does make an interesting story to tell classmates...bruised by a marshmallow.

Hope your family has a fun trip!

Have a great weekend...
The weather here in upstate NY is suppose to be perfect..

Those pizza bites and bread cones are going on my menu! Those are fabulous ideas. Thanks Michelle.

I gave my nephews marshmallow guns for Christmas a few years ago. A month later, my brother was ready to kill me--apparently, 12-year-old boys can find ways to be destructive with almost anything, including inserting toothpicks into the marshmallows.

Chele said...

Great ideas! The pizza bites look yummy!!! I like the shed idea too! Have a great weekend!!

Jolanthe said...

Those pizza bites look great!! And I'm bookmarking the pvc gun for later use!

Amber said...

Pizza bites, doughnuts. You see, those are just two reasons why I love you! Am off to check out the recipes. And then my kids will love you, too.

jacjewelry said...

Mmm pizza bites! Those look good. Have you tried making that plastic crane? Looks like it'd be a lot of work, like those 3-D cookies. :)

Your posts always have a way of making me hungry!

Marshmallow guns are awesome...for kids & grown-ups (uh, not that I would know...).

Maddy said...

Love the bread cones! That will be great to try with my budding chef although the fillings are more to my taste than his.

As for the shed.......can't wait for retirement.
Cheers

Kara said...

I can't necessarily be angry with you for posting about those pizza bites but really... why tempt us! All kidding aside, those look amazing - definitely will make them next time I make a huge batch of homemade pizza dough.

Mmmm. Lovely. :)

Have a wonderful long weekend.

I just took the tmobile quiz, and I got sgt. strict, too. But 20% of the parents did, and I suspect 20% is too high for reality.

And I thought my dad turning a straw into a spoon with his pocketknife was cool!

Love the shed too.

Have a great time!

Love the PVC mini marshallow gun!

I saw this shed in Ready Made Magazine a while ago and thought the very same thing. I need one for my office. A space of my own.

Daisy said...

Love the "shed" replacement! I could handle one of those. Knowing me, it would probably end up converted to a greenhouse for my garden seedlings.
