I enjoyed the quiz and knew only a few answers! The casserole looks delicious and perfect for this fall cooler weather.

I knew all of them, but I just remember opal because my grandmother had an opal ring she wore on her right hand. Gramps and I buried her with it. We felt she would have liked that.

This casserole looks OK, but I think the squash from yesterday is something I will actually fix.

Bella flor y gracias por la receta. Te mando un beso.

Two more "facts": My "little" Brother and his youngest daughter were born in October.
I don´t expect them to join your list ;-)

Today is German Unity Day (one of my T´s celebrates also his Birthday) and I made a Soljanke, a typical East-German dish I learned of a couple of years ago, recipe to come on Thursday, sooo yummy (I am "West German").
Thanks also to you I cooked it!!! Me! The one who could not cook and asked you the dumbest questions in the beginning...
I really do thank you loads!
To a happy October!
