RED stuff

Why YES, yes, I did make a fire truck pot... sure, I sculpt a bit, but I am usually connected to pottery...the wheels, cab, front, etc were all made on the pottery wheel and assembled...I knew I had a good red glaze for it.
I have told you that when I saw PINNOCHIO when I was 5 I wanted to make toys, like his maker Gepetto!  And gosh, sometimes I do make toys (although this fire truck, retaining its potness, um, could hold something useful).  The fire truck is special though:  I had a great bulldozer when I was little but always wanted a firetruck...

Speaking of red stuff, check out this ketchup fried rice!  You didn't know it is a Korean-American comfort food did you?  (click here) I will admit, I use the red stuff I like, such as chili sauce, hot sauce and Chinese garlic-chili sauce rather than ketchup...oh GOSH, yum!
Have a great Thursday!

Love it! What a great toy with a place to hide stuff.

That is the fire truck of which dreams are made! What a dreamer!

I heard the interview on NPR about the ketchup fried rice chef.
and that fire truck is REALLY cool.

Love the firetruck but the dalmation steals the show. I actually saw a dalmation today when I went to the shops.

My family loves ketchup on macaroni with a little bit of butter. When I met my Italian husband, his family thought that was what I thought spaghetti was....I was like...duh....this is just what we eat for lunch. So good.
