Welcome all to definitely not martha, the sarcastic, quip-filled home of Sugar High Friday for November 2007. SHF was created by Jennifer at Domestic Goddess and has been hosted by blogs across the globe...now including me.
Seeing as this month is Thanksgiving for American readers, and generally has me in a harvest-y kinda mood, what with threats of snow, ice and other such chilly menaces….the theme for this month is Beta Carotene Harvest.
This is like the chicken soup of the dessert world – something hearty, something comforting and something that packs a beta carotene punch…i.e., desserts made with typical harvest gourds and roots – pumpkin, squash, sweet potato, etc. (I’m open to other possibilities…but this is the general idea). A few examples:
- pumpkin pie
- carrot cake
- sweet potato torte
- spiced pumpkin strudel
Go nuts! Be creative! Make something totally new. I love weird and different. So show me what you’ve got!
The deadline for submitting to this month’s SHF is MONDAY, 26 November at midnight EST (GMT-5). I will post the round-up on Friday the 30th of November…at some point during the day/evening (he – I’ve got a day job peeps!).
In order to share your submission, I will require the following:
- image (optional) no larger than 100x100 (doesn’t have to be square, but the biggest dimension cannot exceed 100 pixels)
- a link to your entry
- name of your blog (and link to your blog)
- a brief summary of your entry
Please send your entries to me here: email@example.com with the title SHF November (or something like that, so I don’t think it’s spam!). You can post in comments, but I can’t guarantee I’ll find it….so if you could send me an email, that would kick ass.
If you do not have a blog and wish to participate, please feel free to do so in the comments section.
I look forward to seeing all of your vitamin-packed creations…
