Sharing is caring!

I have been enjoying the posts that all my friends have put up for the Mega Marathon, that I almost forgot that I have to announce for the next one round the corner!

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 participating bloggers post is mandatory.
And subscription to the group will be monthly basis.

  • Mandatory reading and commenting on fellow participating member.
Each theme can be selected by four bloggers on first come first bases. 

Other rules will be mailed to the individuals.
Themes for BM # 40th 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 – Fat free kid’s friendly recipes (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid’s Delight – Lunch box series (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)
Please note Kid’s delight posts be it for the BM theme or the event, needs to be kid approved. Which means you get your kid, your young relatives or neighbors approve what you have made. Would surely appreciate a note on who liked it and their age group. This way we can tag it properly.
Another thing can be that you as a kid liked the particular dish. Else it will not be eligible for both the events.
Kid’s Delight –  Fat free kid’s friendly recipes (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)

The first half of May will be hosted by Priya Suresh, who is calling dishes that are Fat Free and Kid Friendly. Check out her announcement for more details
Kid’s Delight –  Lunch box series (17,18,19 and 24,25,26) 

This is hosted by Jayanthi, who is calling ideas for Kid friendly dishes that can be packed and sent for school.

Yeasted Baked Bread

As the name says, make yeast base breads. It can be any type, sweet or savory and cabe with different starter etc. Only condition being it should be yeast based.

Gourment Gravies

By name you can understand it has to be rich gravies, more like restaurant specials. So please get your nut pastes, creams out and make a lip smacking gourment gravies!

Mocktail Delights

With the Summer on in our parts of the woods, why not make it chill by chilling out with Mocktails? Make some mocktails or if you rather make cocktail your wish of course!

Evening Snacks

Though nothing like a winter evening, where you can relax with hot pakoras, we can’t ignore the summer as well right. So make some evening snack as per your season and enjoy! As the name says, it has to be a snack and not a meal.

Mango Mania

Need I explain further?..make anything with Mango as the main ingredient and enjoy the season with the best of Mango dish you can make. Be it sweet or savory, Indian Sweets or Desserts, just about anything!
