Truth is Stranger than Fiction - Pink Saturday



















From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I could find no photos of pink elephants, but I did stumble on this oddity in the Christian Science Monitor. I thought it would be a perfect addition to the April Fool's Day event that Beverly is hosting on her blog, How Sweet the Sound, for Pink Saturday. The photo was taken on April Fool's Day in 2010 on Istiklal Avenue in Istanbul, Turkey. For reasons I have not been able to divine, the municipality released 100,000 pink balloons as part of its April Fool's Day celebration. Go figure. Truth is stranger than fiction.

I love all those pink balloons, reminds me of the breast cancer color. I guess more countries than just us celebrate April Fools Day!

Barbara said...

The balloons are marvelous, aren't they? Such a fun photo!

I really liked seeing the recipe for Elizabeth. It kind of ties in with mine, although the dishes certainly don't look the same. Yours made such a pretty presentation.
I didn!t know much about this game changer....but that's why we're doing this, right?
Have a lovely weekend Mary. I'm going to try to get a couple more game changer recipes tested as I have a busy couple weeks coming up. I do look forward to an afternoon of cooking on a weekend.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Mary. I am so glad you joined us.

The pink balloon must have been quite a sight. And, fun, too.

It was fun seeing the links of interest at the bottom of this posts. Lots of yummy Pink Saturdays of the past.
