Happy Fourth Of July! America's 234th Birthday!
Took a nice break from things this past week. It was gorgeous weather, perfect for strolling the boardwalk, walking by the beach. So I did. We're enjoying the weekend! Not much cooking, not much doing lately, a welcome relief. But joining in Mary's Mosaic Monday again this week. For more mosaic's stop by the Little Red House!
Trying a new way to do the mosaics this week. Change of pace from Big Huge Labs. Found the link to Picnik on another blog. and now I can't remember which blog, but I loved the mosaics, so I tried it. I usually use Big Huge Labs. Picnik is nice, too! I tried it with a mosaic of our dogs!
Sorry, Kathleen, but I did the mosaic of my pups this week! I know how much you love big, sloppy dogs, LOL! But scroll on down and there's a nice calzone for you and Mike :) Serves two!
Three dogs, Max is the baby at ten months, he was really supposed to be a pair of sneakers from the mall, but the big kid came home with a dog instead of new sneakers. Chip was a whim, from the dog pound. Six weeks old, he fit in our hands. Just couldn't leave him. and Trixie is because we were passing the Bide-A-Wee adoption place, and stopped to look instead of the bowling alley down the block. No one in the family is allowed near pet stores, pet adoption places or the pound any more in the near future.

So not much happening in the kitchen this week, we ordered in a lot. This was by far the favorite of the week. A brick oven calzone, stuffed with ricotta and mozzarella. The thinnest crust and not overstuffed to the point of a total globby mess, and it's huge, it's for two or more! With delicious brick oven taste! and a very crispy crust! I think I could do this, but it won't look as good, and it won't be a thin crust or as crispy a crust. but I'm going to try one of these days! Minus the brick oven. Unless Mr. Griller plans to buy me a nice, expensive brick oven, we'll stick to the grill! or a baking stone. Or takeout again!
