Thanks for the multiple choice quiz. I suspect I did better (but will check).

Happy November!
Another great quiz. I know from my trusty Shakespeare ruler, I missed one, so far. :)
A carrot cake recipe is a good start for breakfast muffins.

Oh! I did poorly. The last I got it right... I'm certain of that! I need a piece of that cake right now!!

Luiz Gomes said...

Boa tarde meu querido amigo. Confesso que não gosto muito de bolo de cenoura. Gosto mais de cenoura crua ou ralada. Desejo um excelente mês de novembro com muita paz e saúde.

Anita said...

Love the carrot cake!!Nam nam nam!

Sono negata, non so rispondere a nessuna domanda, tranne a quelle dell'oroscopo 😂😂😂

Io adoro la torta di carote 😀

Our daughter is an end-of-November baby so I knew quite a few answers. We celebrate Thanksgiving in the US on the fourth Thursday in November and we always celebrated her birthday on that day which made her feel extra special. Your carrot cake looks delicious! I often made that as her birthday cake

Jeff said...

I'm pretty sure I got 4 correct and the rest are guesses. That carrot cake looks good!

I think I know 4 and guessed at the others.
The carrot cake looks delicious.

I have never been successful with carrot cake. I end up with carrot bricks. Even the birds turn them down when I crumble them on the bird table.

God bless.

Jenn Jilks said...

My brain is full. We're still doing fall chores!

Gracias por la receta. Te mando un beso.
