Stuffed ZucchiniI’ve been so busy sharing garden photos on Fridays for the last few months that it seems like forever since I’ve posted a list of five fun things, so some of these mentions are long overdue.

Don’t let that stop you from enjoying them though, starting with one of my favorite spots on the web who gave some recognition to my list of zucchini recipes more than a month ago!

Fun Thing #1: My Zucchini Post Makes Top Ten Links List at Cheap Healthy Good

One of the blogs I follow is Cheap Healthy Good (no longer online, written by a bunch of sharp young women. Ever Friday they post an impressive list of Top Ten Links, gathered from some of the most interesting sites on the web. I was so excited on August 8, when my post about Zucchini Recipes made the list. 

Fun Thing #2: Roger Ebert Remembers Things Kids Liked in the 1950s

I realize that most of you reading my blog weren’t kids in the 50s! But even those of you who are a bit younger than some of us might get a kick out of this pictorial from Roger Ebert (one of the most entertaining people on Twitter, in my opinion.) In the Chicago Sun Times, Ebert shares photos of things you’ll remember if you were a kid in the 1950s. So tell the truth now, how many of them did you recognize?

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. (Obviously this is now closed!)

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!
