    What I learned this week: Pepperoni Bird beats out Bomb Bird

    My grandsons love, love, love Angry Birds.

    When I visited my grandsons last April, Mac delighted in his Angry Birds crackers.

    When Bubby had his birthday in June, he was thrilled to receive from Gramma and PawDad a stuffed Bomb Bird — has all-time fave Angry Bird — to play with indoors plus a Bomb Bird wind chime to listen to outdoors.

    And then there's the Angry Birds tattoos I told you all about last week.

    Yes, my grandsons love, love, love Angry Birds.

    Bubby plays Angry Birds on Daddy's iPhone every chance he gets. Sometimes he gives Mac a turn at playing it, too. Amazingly, Mac — who just turned 2 in June — actually knows what to do.

    2-year-old playing Angry Birds

    Considering their obsession with love for the grumpy feathered friends, I knew when I saw this Angry Birds pizza on the Gombby Facebook page a while back that I just had to surprise Bubby and Mac with it during my recent visit.

    Now, I don't really know a darn thing about Angry Birds, other than the black one is named Bomb Bird. I have never played the game, have seen just snippets while Bubby and Mac played. Still, I think I managed to pull off the Angry Birds look fairly well — despite using a hard-boiled egg for the eyeballs instead of the mushrooms that were supposed to be there. (Meh... mushrooms or eggs, the boys would eat neither anyway, so why waste the money on mushrooms that would be pitched before the pizza was cut?)

    I told the boys the pizza was named "Pepperoni Bird." They seemed pretty pleased with the moniker as well as the overall look of their surprise pizza.

    Sure, it wasn't quite as cool as a Bomb Bird pizza might have been. But I have no doubt that despite looking Angry Bird awesome, a pizza covered with black olives would have gone directly into the garbage quicker than those boiled-egg eyes did.

    Bomb Bird may be a hit in the game — and as a stuffed toy and a wind chime, too — but when it comes to pizza, Pepperoni Bird always wins out.

    And that is what I learned this week.

    Have a lovely weekend! See ya back here Monday for the GRAND Social and more!

    Today's question:

    How would you rate your Angry Birds skills?

    Adorable pizza! If only my Grandkids would eat pepperoni ...

    My Angry Birds skills include watching my Granddaughter play like a fiend on the cell phone. That's it...that's all. So without Angry Birds pizza making skills, I guess that would be a zero.

    Doesn't anyone play Pac Man these days? lol.

    My knowledge of Angry Birds is zilch so, my score would be less than zero. But I think your pizza creation is absolutely artistic.

    Pepperoni is not a favorite of mine, tho' and, I've have eaten the Egg Eyeballs and nothing else. Old people are just plain wierd, I guess.

    Bubby looks very happy with his new bird! The smile on his face is so sweet! Amara would just love that pizza -- she is loves pepperoni!! I have no Angry Bird skills -- none.

    What a cool pizza!

    I love the pizza, and all I know about Angry Birds I learned from seeing the plush toys on sale at the local big box store.

    Great job on the pizza, grandma! And, as always, cute, cute, CUTE pictures of the boys! All I know about those birds is what I just read in your post - and really, that's okay with me! I'm sure it won't be long before the kiddoes over here join the fun - and then I'll have to copy your pizza idea!

    Too funny - love, love, love the pizza. My grandson loves Angry Birds and I even made him a couple of fleece hats to resemble his favorite characters. I could play the original Angry Bird game pretty darn well but some of the newer ones got tougher and I have to leave those to him. :-)

    That is just too cute! I am horrible at Angry Birds BTW. I bet I would be great at eating that pizza though!
