Fun quiz. I think increased my average. :)

Roasting a pumpkin today. It is so good with butter and black pepper, a small frittata with fresh spinach.

That dish looks great! I have a lot of butternut squash from my garden awaiting me when I return home.. I think I got everything right in the quiz except the questions on birthstones and flowers. Those are a guess.

October was my grandmother's birthday so I know them all. Even the A.A.Milne one. Had to laugh at the first question. Ask a six year old and she would say "candy day!"

Sondra said...

I knew a lot of these questions this month as there are a lot of birthdays in my family during October: my mom, husband and daughter to keep it to direct relatives. I love ding these though, so let me go off to check how well I actually did with today's post. Happy October!
