When Eggplants Smile…


Recently…I was slicing an eggplant…not a very exciting task…and one I’ve done many times…but…I was pleasantly surprised…to find a sweet little face…smiling at me…

Of course my first thought was…preserve it…sell it on eBay…it could be the Madonna…or maybe Elvis…although…I don’t think it looked much like the King…I could get rich…I could be famous…

But…considering that I was hungry…and eggplant parmesan is one of my favorites…I decided to capture it in film…and chow on down…

The casserole was delicious…by the way…

Bertha…had something to say about my unusual find…she actually said it reminded her of my life…how could I not see that one coming…that smiles…sometimes come from unlikely places…if I only look for them…she further said…the best way to find a smile…is to wear one…

Hmmm…I wonder if I was smiling as I sliced the eggplant…could be…

  1. Awww!! She’s so sweet! And apparently tasty! LOL!

    I love looking for smiles in nature – and hearts… you can find a lot of those in nature too 😉

    • Jenn…how nice to see you! Yes…she was precious…reminded me of one of my daughter’s dolls…Doll-Doll…she had that same sweet expression! I love finding hears as well…especially little heart-shaped rocks! Have a wonderful day!
