Friday: More Faces, More Firemen

25 May

I see faces everywhere, in my eggs in the frying pan, in my brownie batter, and today in my cheesecake mixture. Yes, faces everywhere! The fun part is, the funny faces in the batter always bring about smiling faces in the recipients of the finished product.

When the eggs are dropped in, the face just happens. This is never done on purpose. A gift or a curse?

The finished product…mini-cheesecakes.

With Memorial Day around the corner, I wanted to thank our local fire fighters with some homemade treats. They certainly go out of their way for us, don’t they!


But sound aloud the praises, and give the victor-crown
To our noble-hearted Firemen, who fear not danger’s frown.
~Frederic G.W. Fenn, “Ode to our Firemen,” 1878

      Thanks! They are great. Especially in my thoughts lately, as a few brave folks have lost their lives. I hope others will be inspired to show their appreciation, too.

    Those cheesecakes look awesome. I see faces on everything as well.

      Where do you see your faces? Are you an artist? I find artists/writers tend to have this strange ability.

        I like to make things, but I don’t know about an artist. I see faces in car fronts, and wall sockets, and simple ordinary things.
