A Cooking Curve Ball

Twas the night before the weekend, and all through the house,
Delicious scents wafted through the air, to the nose of my spouse.
The toppings were placed on our pizza with care,
We knew no other meal would simply compare.

When all of a sudden, there came such a clatter,
I crutched to the stove to see what was the matter.
Jared also jumped and flew over in a flash,
And soon we could see what was about to end up in the trash.

I was useless and injured, but he acted quick,
Jared grabbed a spatula before things started to stick.
Oh we were devastated, and tears almost came,
How could our pizza stone shatter?! That's simply insane!

Our Zucchini Pizza sure didn't look pretty,
But we salvaged what we could, though the kitchen was gritty.
It's a lasagna now, it was simply a cooking curve ball,
Now eat it! Just eat it! Eat it once and for all!

*It actually was delicious, despite the craziness of this story. Recipe here. Our stone just got really hot and totally shattered- on it's own! Time for a new one, I guess.
