Our newest addition... again with the pets!

If you know anything about me you know I'm a SUCKER for animals. And this little guy is no exception. He was headed to the pound and I just had to have him. He is a 10 year old "Shorkie" Shitzu and Yorkie mix named Grizzly. He is just like a little old man because he likes things his way and.... well.... he smells like one. His breath anyway. But we adore him and He adores me. Mostly me and just tolerates the others. He is a self esteem builder for sure. :) So here's to another of my endless parade of pets.

Stuffed Zucchini... so good

1 ½ lbs zucchini squash

1 ½ cups soft bread crumbs

½ cup grated cheese

¼ tspn salt

1/8 tspn pepper
