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. And you have the choice of doing two different themes. 
Kid’s Delight – Colourful Dishes (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid’s Delight –  Beat the Summer (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 – Colourful Dishes (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)

The 1st and 2nd week of March will be hosted by Varada. She will be announcing the event on her blog by February 16th with theme “Colourful Dishes”. As the name says, the dish has to be colourful and appealing to kids. However the dish needs to be made without the use of food color.

Kid’s Delight –  Beat the Summer (17,18,19 and 24,25,26) 
The 3rd and 4th week of  February will be hosted by Nisha Sundar. She will be announcing the event on her blog by March 16th with theme “Beat the Summer”. So with the Summer being peak at that time, you can bring along anything that can chill you!

International Flatbreads

As the theme says the bread has to be a flatbread,. I wasn’t planning on quoting the wiki, however when I checked just now, felt it was easy to explain what a flatbread is. So pick your flatbread from any country, other than India/Pakistan. Indian/Pakistan Flatbreads are not allowed!

American Sandwiches

I love Sandwiches and always look out for an option to make them. Until I landed in this List of Sandwiches, I never really thought of so many varieties. So let’s make them ourselves!

Pastas with Different Sauces

From Marinara to Alfredo to Pesto, I guess there is a world of Pastas sauces that can be made!. So get on your caps and dig out as many as you can, of course we get to see only 3 unfortunately though.

Methi Dishes

Bring out three different dishes with Methi/ Fenugreek as the Star Ingredient. Only fresh/dry methi leaves are to be used. Methi Seeds are not considered. However if the leaves used in the recipe, is just a tsp, the n it can’t be considered.

One ingredient and different category dishes

When I selected the ingredient for the previous theme, I thought I will now let you select one ingredient and showcase three. Again your three dishes should belong to different categories, like soup, starter or dessert for example. The star ingredient can’t be Potato, Maida, salt, oil.

Pick one Category, do 3 or Do one from each of the below listed category

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

BM Bookmarked – either own or from others
This special theme is open for those who do all the first three weeks.

Please spread the details if you want your friends to be part of this marathon.
Let’s gear up for another non stop blogging!
