A Bad Omen?

I opened my jar of molasses to start my Thanksgiving baking…


I hope this isn’t a bad omen.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

(And wish me luck…)

Never miss a post!

    awww, David! He’s sad but very cute. And he’s smoking a cigarette. Happy Thanksgiving :)

    Is is a bird? Is it Elvis?

    if you flip the lid upside down, it looks like the top of a kitty cat head. (that’s one way of looking at it!)

    please share, what recipe are you using molasses in?

    happy thanksgiving to you!

    You should think of it this way: that little tail on the left side of his “face”, that must be a tongue. he must be licking his chops from anticipation of deliciousness, and in order to lick one’s chops, the corners of one’s mouth must be a bit turned down. so no frowns, only chop-licking.

    so cute~

    it’s really like a sad face,haha

    I thought it was another E-Bay Jesus on toast!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I think it’s a bird (the cigarette thing is the beak).

    What is this, the food-people Rorschach?

    Maryann: I didn’t even think about him (or her) smoking. Maybe he (or she) is upset about the upcoming ban! : )

    Happy Thanksgiving David. Are you making your ginger cake with the molasse? Thanks again for the recipe, it was a big hit. Very moist and very tasty.

    Good luck, David. Happy Thanksgiving!

    It’s hilarious, but what’s scary is that you look at the inside of lids to get omens.

    Can’t you gut birds and animals like the rest of us?

  • November 21, 2007 1:27pm

    Good luck and Happy Thankgiving! For how many people are you cooking?

    What – French smiley faces that smoke don’t like molasses? Your recipe will certainly turn that frown upside down!

    And this comment tips you out of the ‘aura of 13’, heh…

    I think it’s kind of cute…it looks a little like Jack Skellington.
    Happy Thanksgiving David.

    Well from the molasses’ point of view… you’re killing it… empty jar = sad.

    Hey, you can say it’s Jesus on that lid and then sell it on Ebay. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Are those Grandma’s molasses? ‘Cause that’s what I have and I hope they are “mild” enough for the ginger cake.

    Good luck!

  • November 21, 2007 3:44pm

    awww… poor little guy in the lid :)

    but think about that : how would you feel after you would have spent days ( even months maybe ! )with the face stucked in some molasse ? :D

    Wishing you the BEST Thanksgiving ever, David. I hope you will share your menu with us.

    YOur molasses jar does look a bit sad. Perhaps it just wanted to get used.

  • November 21, 2007 5:52pm

    Haha oh no!! That’s pretty funny though.

    I hope you and yours have a TERRIFIC, HAPPY, and TASTY Thanksgiving!

    Hey, it looks kind of confused. Maybe its a sign of getting hit on the head.

  • November 21, 2007 10:11pm

    HA! that’s hysterical. Happy Turkey Day to you, dear David. xoxo

    This reminds me of a site I saw years ago with photos of food (or maybe objects as well) that seemed to look like ghoulish faces…. sorry, can’t remember the site.
    Happy Thanksgiving to David and all who celebrate it – and to those who don’t!

    Good luck, and happy Thanksgiving! I’m not living in the US, so I’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving on Saturday, and your most-requested ginger cake is going to be making an appearance on the dessert table. I can’t wait!!

  • November 22, 2007 7:43am

    that looks really funny!
    and dramatic, in a scary kind of way… brrrr

    Happy Thanksgiving! Maybe the Molasses is just a heavy for the Turkey Liberation Front? Then it could be frowning and smoking…

  • November 22, 2007 9:53am

    Too funny. Happy Thanksgiving! xo

  • November 22, 2007 11:44pm

    Happy Thanksgiving! Hope all of your cooking went well!

  • November 23, 2007 6:19am

    Hilarious! good luck…

    I had a pretty damn good day after finding this:

    making pancakes.
