You can now call me the zucchini queenie! Check out the size of the zucchini I picked from our garden yesterday. The small one is average but the big guy is 18” long and weighs 5 pounds. That should make a few batches of bread.
The other day I stumbled across this idea on Pintrest and had to try it out. It looked easy enough but sometimes things just don’t turn out the way you think they will. This one turned out great! Take a pizza pan and line it with parchment paper. Next unwrap 127 Starlight Mints and line them up on the tray. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, cool and voila, you have an editable, peppermint serving tray. Cost per unit is approximately $1.54 and you can make 2.5 trays out of a 3 pound bag of mints.
This is a kid friendly project too as you’ll need help unwrapping that many mints. When it gets closer to Christmas the stores will start selling green mints along with the red and then you can make a tree design in the center or an initial or anything you want.
Just think how this would jazz up a plate of cookies or cupcakes
and it would make a great base for a gingerbread house too. But you must do me a favor. If you are going to a Christmas party that I’m going to, don’t bring this because I’ll be pissed if we both show up with the same thing.
Another successful project I tried on Pintrest was a magnet board. For around .97 cents you can buy a cheap pizza pan. Cover it with your favorite material using glue; add a bow on the front and a hanger on the back and you have a nice magnet board. The magnets are easy to make too, just buy a pack of magnets and some stickers (flowers, smiley faces or letters) that are the same size. You know those rocks that you use in flower vases? Take one of
those and using a dot of clear glue stick the rock onto the sticker that you have placed on the magnet. You now have a cheap, homemade, Christmas gift that looks great.
