Sharing is caring!

We are into the 21st Edition of Blogging Marathon and I am all set for another wonderful round of blogging non stop for three days in tow.

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, 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. 
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.

Themes for BM # 21st 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 – Let’s party ~  Anniversary Special (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid’s Delight –  To be Announced (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)
Kid’s Delight – Let’s party ~  Anniversary Special(3,4,5 and 10,11,12)

Spice your Life! will be celebrating its 4th year Anniversary and there is no better occasion than this to celebrate.

the focus of this blog is all for Kids, I thought Kid’s delight event
will be the most apt one. So let’s party by bringing in kid approved
dishes. You are welcome to bring on any course of the meal. However only
Vegetarian entries are accepted.

Kid’s Delight –  Healthy Makeover (17,18,19 and 24,25,26) 

Rasya will hosting this edition themed on Healthy Makeover. Anything that’s considered fatty, greasy can be converted to healthy dish for kids by replacing some of the ingredients or by steaming instead of deep frying.

Diabetic Sweets

As the theme says, you got to make sweets that are made using sweetners other than sucrose. The dishes that you make should have alternative sugar substitutes. It can be of any cuisine

Using Moong Dal, make one of the Combo

Moong dal can be split yellow dal or whole green gram as well

As a Savory Snack
As light meal

Cooked along with Rice
Cooked along with Greens
Cooked along with Potato

As a blended ingredient
As fried
As Steamed

In all of the above, the lentil can be ground, used as such. And it should be the star ingredient.

Cooking with Berries

Search out for all the berries that you can find and cook with them. Any course is fine, as long as the berry is used as the star ingredient.

Sandwiches and Wraps

Well as the name says, make as many sandwiches or wraps as you want. And it can be with anything, not necessarly with bread.

3 Days of Upma

Upmas are such convienent dish, so take this up to try out other different ones than the regular rava upma.

Navaratri Special

With the Navaratri coming this month, let’s cook something special for Navaratri and share. Again this can’t have anything like modern sweets like bread halwa etc,. even though you may make it. I am looking at traditional sweets and savories. And any other special dishes that’s prepared at your home.

Special Theme –  Copy Cat –  Do three weeks and for the 4th week you get to do create dishes from your BM friends.

For this Edition’s Special Theme you can simply cook anything from any
BM member’s blog and enjoy. No restriction on it being from this
edition’s themes. Just anything is fine.

This is accepted only for the 4th week.
Please spread the details if you want your friends to be part of this marathon.
Let’s gear up for another non stop blogging!
