Five Fun Things on Friday (9-10-10)
Fun Thing #1: My Zucchini Post Makes Top Ten Links List at Cheap Healthy Good
Fun Thing #2: Roger Ebert Remembers Things Kids Liked in the 1950s
Fun Thing #3: Food Bloggers’ Ingredient Phobias Revealed at Canadian Living Magazine
I was thrilled to be included on a very stellar list of bloggers’ sharing their ingredient phobias at Canadian Magazine, including a few bloggers I’ve met in person like Bea, Jasmine, and Matt, my best-long-distance-friend Ilva, and Salt Lake City blogging buddy Dara.
Fun Thing #4: You Could Have a Recipe Featured in Salt Lake Junior League Cookbook
I have Junior League cookbooks from various parts of the country, so when I got an e-mail telling me that the Junior League of Salt Lake is working on their fourth cookbook and would like recipe submissions, I agreed to pass on the information. (Wouldn’t it be fun if a recipe from one of my blogging friends or readers makes it into the cookbook!) If you have a recipe you think might be good enough, there are three ways to submit:
–Fax: (801) 328-1048
–Mail: New Cookbook, Junior League of Salt Lake City, 526 E. 300 S., SLC, UT 84102
Deadline to submit recipes is September 30, after which all recipes will be tested to see if they will be chosen for the book.
Fun Thing #5: How to Make a Parchment Circle
I confess that I had a few flashbacks of teaching first grade when I saw this video from Michael Ruhlman about How to Make a Parchment Paper Circle, but if you don’t know this trick I think you’ll find it to be pretty clever!
I’m sure some of you are spending more time than I do scouring the web for the latest and greatest, so if you found something fun this past week, please do share that link in the comments! If you need just a little more Friday Fun, you can use the label for Five Fun Things on Friday to see fun things I’ve shared on other Fridays!

Jan, I'm just so glad I'm not the only one who remembers those things from the 50s!
Dara, too fun that we were both included in the Canadian Living feature, and glad you liked the circle.
Great list of fun things, Kalyn! Congratulations on the link to your zucchini post and the blurb in Canadian Living (fun to be in there with you, my blogging inspiration). That parchment circle method is brilliant – I will never trace again!
Kid of the 50's here too. I remember all but two of those things. I even started singing some of the commercials that went with the products. Too funny!
Barbara, very interesting. I'm kind of surprised that so few made it over there.
Sandi, me too!
Barbara, thanks. It was a keeper for me.
Pam, that's funny!
Elaine, me too!
You find the such great things on the web, Kalyn. I follow Ebert on Twitter, too, and he is very interesting. I remember way too many of those 50's things.
How fun! I was born in 58 so I'm sort of kid from the 50s! We had that Christmas tree, complete with the revolving light.
Kalyn that stuffed zucchini might just have to make an appearance on my menu next week. Great picture!
Zucchini could make my top 10 list. #1-10
That's a friday's favorite 🙂
I'm a kid from the '50's. The items show the cultural difference between America and Australia. I only know 7 of the items.Interesting.
Congrats on making the Top 10 links for your zucchini.
