Though I am announcing the edition for the next month, I am so excited and happy that Blogging Marathon is entering into its fifth year!
Special thanks to my Blogging Marathon Buddies for making this happen. And for always being there for me.
Now coming to the announcement, this is for February 2015. February will also mark a special milestone for us. We will be meeting up to celebrate the BM # 50. Since March is going to be hectic with school exams etc, we decided to meet a month ahead to celebrate. I simply can't believe we are so soon celebrating this milestone. When we met for BM#25th Celebration, I was being skeptical when everybody said they should plan big for BM#50 and here we are meeting up for that!
Anyway for those of you who are landing here for the first time, then please check out these posts on Blogging Marathon, you can read about all the history, the thought process that's gone in everything in one place in the BM#18 intro
- Should take up 2 weeks of BM without fail. It can be any two weeks.
- Will have to post on all 3 days with 2 weeks without fail
- You cannot take the same themes, except for the different Kid's Delight theme.
- Should follow the accepted theme all 3 days, meaning if you choose one topic like Rice, you should post all rice based recipes all 3 days.
- Should link to the Blogging Marathon page.
- Is expected to actively give feedback on others post.
- Mandatory reading and commenting on fellow participating member.
Desserts in different forms
Do any three from the below list, with different category for three days. The listing has by category and by country. So select to do three different catergory or three different countries.
One vegetable different forms. Can be a curry, dry Subzi or as a bread.
As the name says you can select any vegetable and cook in different forms. Potato is not allowed along with regular onions, tomatoes. However if the dishes are special and rare you can still use onions and tomatoes to showcase how differently it can be made.
Indian Bread Baskets
This theme is to showcase our different Indian Breads. Dosas are included under Indian Bread, however it can't be made for all three days. The breads can be mixed, stuffed, deep fried and pan fried.
Accompaniments - in a Restaurant
Accompaniments refer to those starters that offered by the hotel on house. Example most hotel offers you fried friyams, masala papads. I was once offered Rasam Idli in Taj. So you can be creative in planning what you can offer that can be simple yet keep the customer occupied when they wait for their order to be served.
Weekends are meant to be lazying around. Still that doesn't mean you won't feel hungry. So whip up something that's elaborate and heavy enough to make it heavy and filling. The dishes should not be simple or light as you might do with your regular breakfast, yet not so heavy as your lunch.
Cooking for 1 / Meal for 1 / Bachelor friendly recipes
As against the previous theme, now is your turn to plan some simple meal for one. Well just because its just you at home, it doesn't mean you need to starve or not eat a balanced meal. So plan some simple meal for One or even better a meal that a bachelor can cook. I am not saying men can't cook. Just saying this is a theme for a budding guy to learn to cook.
