October 2021 Monthly Color Challenge Block

Here it is, the first Friday in October 2021. We have been playing along with Jen’s Monthly Color Challenge blocks. Today we are sharing our October block along with several other blogger friends.

October Pink Grapefruit

Jen has selected fruits and vegetables as a focus this year. Pink grapefruit is the featured fruit for October and I am a huge lover of grapefruit of all types. I did a little digging in an old recipe box and found a delicious recipe for a cake that includes pink grapefruit in its ingredients. Of course, I had to make it! I wouldn’t want to share a recipe untried or not yet tasted. I can attest that it is easy to make and tasty. Here’s a website with a Pink Grapefruit Cake recipe that is very similar to my mom’s old recipe!

It is fun to visit each website to see their interpretation of this month’s block and the pink grapefruit color!

And, since it is a new quarter and the final one for the year, here are the sponsors who have generously offered a gift/prize to be announced in early January 2022:

Here are the website links for each of the sponsors:


October Monthly Color Challenge Block

I almost forgot about sharing our block, so without further adieu . . . here it is!

The two-tone bright pink is going to be a fun addition to the 2021 monthly color blocks. It is a little difficult to distinguish the exact pattern, though, isn’t it?!
