Anyway I have also done some housekeeping jobs. I have moved BM details to Archives, keeping the current year in the Blogging Marathon Page.
So if you want to check out older BM details, check the BM Archives
If you are new and want to join us, check out the BM Guidelines and Rules
Other than that, we are set to check out the next edition.
This announcement is for July 2015, so you a have month's time to get yourself ready for the posts. Which means doing last minute posting, hurried comments will not be appreciated much.
I also decided I will be little more strict in handling late posts. I know real life sometimes becomes very tough to manage. However if you know it is going to be so, please do not sign up. I will understand. But if you are signing up, then I expect you to be prompt in posting and reading fellow BM blogs.

Snacks that let guests leave one arm free to shake a hand, hold a drink...or grab another.
Vegetarian Italian For Dinner
Make an Italian for dinner and please your family, only it should be Vegetarian. There are lots of options for this theme, so please do not settle for simple and easily assembled dishes. Its going to be dinner and family time, so showcase as such!
3 Festivals across globe
Select one festival from any country and cook the dishes that are prepared for that festival. It can be one dish or a combination. All the 3 days should feature different countries. One day can be from India but not your native state.
Festival here does not necessarily refer to a religious one. It can be any event that is celebrated as a mass and observed as a whole across a country.
For example I can do 1 day American, 1 day Italian, 1 day Rajasthan.
It should be deep fried snacks. Only Snacks are accepted for this theme and no other category of food. Snacks that can be served to nibble on or as a light meal. Cookie style snack can also fit in this. It can be sweet or savory. All our Indian Traditional snacks are also accepted.
Different lentils cooked in different ways. It can be a snack, starter, dal, gravy , Rice or even dessert etc! I leave it to you to decide. However make it in different ways with different lentils.
Easy school recipes / Single serve dorm recipes / MW recipes
The options should be doable with a refrigerator and a MW. Should be for single serve, with ingredients that don't need too much prep and won't spoil quickly. This can be MW version or stove as well, if inductions are allowed in the dorm.
Your recipes can fall under either of the three options I have given. It can be all MW recipes or in combination.
