Blogging Marathon # 66 - 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

I feel that the Mega BM Journey through the Cuisines just got over and realized even May passed by quickly! It's time for the next edition, the BM#66 for July 2016!




Before going into the new themes, here are the links to some of the BM related pages.

The 2015 BM details can be found in the Blogging Marathon Page.
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

Since we have a month to prepare, please avoid doing last minute posting, prepare ahead and schedule, which should give you enough time to read the fellow participating blogger's post in leisure.

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.

For details on BM held every month, check out the Blogging Marathon page. Once I get all details I will be updating this page. Bloggers taking part in this marathon need to just link back to the BM page.

The entry is again by Sign ups and each theme will again have only 4 bloggers on first come first basis. 

And because of the new rules, I will not be able to accept late sign ups as it will become extremely hard for me to manage otherwise. If you feel you want to do it, please decide ahead, else you can join later.

Commenting on the participating bloggers post is mandatory.

The subscription to the group will be on monthly basis.

Themes for BM # 66th will be the following:

Kid's Delight theme ensures my Kid's Delight event, guest hosted by other bloggers gets good entries. Since the event is 16th - 15th every month, we have two different themes happening for BM in a month. And you have the choice of doing two different themes. 

Kid's Delight - Soups and Salads (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid's Delight - Lunchbox Recipes (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)

Please note all entries for Kid's Delight theme have to be kid approved. The dish can be either approved by your own kid, your young relatives, neighbors or even something that you enjoyed as a kid. Do remember to mention the age group of the kid, so that it becomes easy for others.

Kid's Delight - Soups and Salads  (3,4,5 and 10,11,12) 

The 1st and 2nd week of July will be hosted by Archana. She is calling for Soups and Salads and will be announcing the event on her blog by 15th June.

Kid's Delight - (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)  

The 3rd and 4th week of July will be hosted by Pavani with Lunchbox Recipes as the theme. She will be announcing the event on her blog by 15th July.

Checker Board Theme

I am sure you are familiar with Checker Board, so make 3 different dishes that fall under this pattern. The final dish can be a sweet or savory, baked or stovetop. The only condition is your final presented dish should be in a Checker Board pattern. However, the colours can be any two different colours. Not just white and black.

Pizza!

Make three different pizzas.

Sandwiches without Bread

As the name says, your sandwiches should not be with bread but anything else! Something on the line like my Idli Vada Sandwich

3 Veggies that are fruits

Time to recollect your science. Make 3 Vegetable dishes that are actually fruits by definition but used as vegetables. 

Regional Special

This is regional special of any country, not just India. If you choose to do the USA, you can do any 3 special dishes from any one American states. So its 1 state dishes from either India or USA

Diabetic Friendly Sweets

Normally I have noticed that diabetic avoid sweets on the fact that it has sugar, however, many factors go into it. Like you can use sugar substitutes, alternative sweeteners like honey etc. So come up with something that will cater and fall under diabetic friendly sweets.

Special Theme - Bookmarks/ Food Photography Sessions / Plating Tricks / Other Food Blogging useful topics

For July, this is going to be a special week. Please read the below carefully

If you decide to opt for Bookmarks, you should have done 3 weeks.

Else, if you opt to do either of these topics -  Food Photography Sessions / Plating Tricks / Other Food Blogging useful topics, it is not mandatory to do all 3.

As per the mandatory 2 weeks of BM, you can simply select any 1 week and your second week can be this 4th week.

However, please first discuss with me on what you are opting to do, so that I know if the group will benefit from this session.

This is provided as a special request from the group for this month.
