Fall Fest: Pumpkin and Winter Squash

Each Wednesday for the rest of the fall, a group of blogging friends including those above will swap our recipes and tips about the following harvest-fresh ingredients. Here’s the schedule:
10/13 Pumpkin & Winter Squash
10/20 Pears
10/27 “Mad Stash”, aka what you’re canning, preserving, freezing for winter
11/3 Root Vegetables
11/10 Brassicas

We each post something and then link to one another, so that you can travel around the combined effort, gathering the goodies. Sharing makes the experience even better, so if you have a recipe or tip that fits any of our weekly themes, you can do either of the following:

  • Leave a comment on participating blogs with a link to your recipe/tip
  • Publish a post of your own, and grab the juicy Fall Fest 2010 badge (illustrated by Matt Armendariz of Mattbites)

We hope to see you in the kitchen!
