Fun food, A Fun Project, and TFT #393

Happy Thursday, and welcome to the Thursday Favorite Things link party. I’m always so grateful to see so many bloggers contributing such creative and fun content, and I’m honored that you’re here.

I have been having so much fun reading the posts from last week’s party. (If you missed it, click here.)  This week, there were several fun food posts, and I’m including just a few of these in my features.

Another one of the features this week gives some simple  instructions for making a silhouette.

I have always loved silhouettes, probably because I had one done for me when I was a little girl, while on an outing with my mom, and I still remember what a fun memory it was.

To keep the tradition going, my husband and I had silhouettes done of our kids on a few different visits to Disney World. I’m always in awe of how much the silhouettes look like my kids, even though the people who created them used only scissors, with no sketching beforehand.  Of course, the kids had to sit still while this was done.

My silhouette from the 1960s and one of my kids’ silhouette from the 1990s.

However, my grown son was looking at the silhouettes up on the mantel the other day, and with an impression of me from back in the day, he said, “Hey, while we’re here at one of the most fun places on earth, let’s force our kids to sit dead still for a while and get silhouettes done.”

I laughed so hard, because, yes, those were probably not the most fun experiences for my kids, having to sit still while someone cut out their silhouettes.  I am glad I have the silhouettes, though!

Now that you have the back story of the silhouettes, here are my features:  (Please pin from the original blog, not from here. Thanks!)

Jenna, from Rain on a Tin Roof shows us how to make an easy silhouette, (without having to make your kids sit still!)

And, as promised, how about some fun food?  These funfetti pancakes, from Rebecca at Strength and Sunshine, are wonderful, plus they’re gluten-free, vegan, and allergy free, (and the sprinkles are natural!)

More fun food for you.  Give me this cherry chocolate chip cheesecakenow.  It’s from Miranda at Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt.   (And try to say “cherry chocolate chip cheesecake 3 times fast…)

Last, but not least, this Easy Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole definitely qualifies as fun food!  One of my husband’s favorite meals is literally a cheeseburger and french fries ( and, yes, his cholesterol and blood pressure are fine. He doesn’t eat cheeseburgers and french fries a lot… thankfully!)  I do think he would enjoy this fun casserole!
