Blogging Marathon # 26 - 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

We are still in the BM 25th Edition Celebration mood and would be sharing our memories shortly in this space. Meanwhile I was reminded of the fact that I will have to announce the themes for the next edition and I won't delay any further.

Okay, coming back to the regular stuff, 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

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 this 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 week blogger's post is mandatory.

And subscription to the group will be monthly basis. 

If you want to know how the Blogging Marathon started, read the first edition

Please email me at latest by 23rd February along with your theme.

FYI:  Requests to join after 23rd February will not be accepted.

Mandatory rules for this Blogging Marathon are as below:
Each theme can be selected by four bloggers on first come first bases. 

Other rules will be mailed to the individuals.

Themes for BM # 26th will be the following:

Since having this theme is to make sure my Kid's Delight event gets good entries, I thought it makes sense to have two themes based on the hosting time.

Kid's Delight - Back to Hostel Food (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid's Delight - Street Food (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)

Kid's Delight - Back to Hostel Food  (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)

As always Kamalika thinks differently. This edition she is calling for ideas to pack back to your kids who go back to hostels to study. As hard it will be to send away kids to hostels, it's always done with best intentions. So they might as well enjoy their hostel again with foods packed from home. So from Feb to Mar 15th, you can prepare any food that would stay good for kids who carry back food with them that would have longer shelf life etc.. that would make Back to hostel Food

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

The  next edition will be something very close to my heart, the Street Food! Well Kids love it and I love it too. Preeti will be hosting the event, so create the street foods that your kids love, in your kitchen and send it to her!

Cooking from a bookEverybody agreed having this theme will be great as they can cook from the books they have. To make it a bit more challenging, I decided to give a list. You can cook from different books, it can be a fiction, cookbook etc. But should fall under these combinations

From any 3 different book, pick one ingredient and cook any one combination:

Starter/ Finger Food
Party Gravy

Soup / Juice
Breakfast combo

Indian Sweet

Pick one Ingredient and make three dishes


Rice based
Savory snack

Finger Food

Soups and Salads

Well with Summer fast approaching us, let's do some soups and salads. And it has have one star ingredient as mentioned below

One Protein
One Lentil
One Vegetable Cream/as such

Sandwiches without using Bread

When you think of Sandwiches, you only think of bread, so why not get innovative and showcase other things that can be made as a sandwich. Essentially sandwich means between two things, so let your imagination go wild!

Goan cuisine

As the name says, dish out some authentic Goan cuisine.

Smoked Dishes

Well would you know there is a separate category under Smoked Dishes? I didn't know and hopefully end of this will know some dishes

Special Theme - Do three weeks and for the 4th week you get to do the special theme.

Revising Old post with new pictures

This is accepted only for the 4th week.
