It's Self Portrait Friday


Once again it’s time for Self Portrait Friday.  This week, Kristine has asked us to post something that reflects:

1. Your Puzzle

2. Your Best (Your best what? YOU DECIDE!!)

3. Something “Old”

This was a toughie for me, but here goes…

1. My puzzle

There are a many, many things that puzzle me.  I could probably bore you to sleep with them. When I really think about it though, there is one thing that never ceases to puzzle me.  It’s my youngest child. She is just so mercurial that I can barely keep up with her.  She can be the sweetest angel one moment and seconds later she has turned into a raging monster.  I guess that’s part of her charm…I’m going to blame this one on her father and the red hair! spf-puzzle.jpg

2. My best

I have a lot of “best” things so this was hard to choose.  I went with my best kitchen utensil.  spf-best.jpg I use my strainer all the time.  Especially since we started with this whole vegetarian business.  I rinse pasta, fruit, veggies, rocks…you name it.  It’s starting to get a bit scratched and banged up, but I  figure that just adds character.

3. Something old:

Hmmm, lots of old things to choose from.  I chose my mother’s baking dish. spf-old.jpg Can you believe she was going to get rid of it!  I don’t know where it came from.  I can’t really remember it being used. But I do know that it was always just there through my childhood. I don’t use it nowadays.  I’m too afraid I will drop it and it will be lost forever.  It makes me happy to have.

    Nice pix! I’m not much into cooking so I’m envious that you chose a something from the kitchen for two of your pix.

    I played 🙂

    I love this set of photos also. I was especially touched by the dish. I have many of those. First they started out as hand-me-down discards when I got my first apartment. Now they are treasured.

    I played too

    Neat SPF! I have no surviving old casseroles. They seemed to all break along the way, especially in the days before Corningware. That’s a nice keepsake.

    I played.

  11. Shna says:

    Great SPF, your daughter is beautiful 🙂

    Dear Daughter, This is a picture of a pyrus glass loaf dish, If you set it on something damp when it is hot it will sort of explode; into very sharp large pieces. It is part of the Golden Harvest Line. It came as part of a set, all of which met their devine ending. It think it was made in the mid-sixties. It has been used to make salmon loaf, meatloaf, banana bread, and other things. Even though it is a early version of pyrus wear on the market today. It is no where near as strong as those products made now. And never, never put it in the refrigerater while it is hot. Now you have a little history on this piece that you have probably forgotten. Do you remember the square one like it. I used to use that one most of the time. Love ya mom
