Blogging Marathon # 53 – 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

Sharing is caring!

I know its just too early to think we are starting yet another BM, as the Mega BM got over yesterday. We did a full month Mega BM with Baking as the theme for the entire month.  I hadn’t given any sub themes, so that actually worked better as there was this element of surprise and we eagerly checked out what each other was baking. Almost all of them came up with a sub theme and everything was fabulous. Our Bookmarks have surely increased!

Now coming to the announcement, this is for June 2015.

For those of you who are landing here for the first time, 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.

Bring on Fritters

This is a very board category and you have the whole lot of dishes that you can select from. If you want to know what all can be a fritter, check out the wiki.

It can be sweet, savory. The only clause being “Each day should be from different country”

3 Ingredient Dish

As the name says your dish should feature only 3 ingredients. Salt, sugar, oil can be ignored. It can be sweet or savory or any course too.

Snacks for a Movie Date

Are you planning for a weekend movie time with your family or friends? then you will naturally plan for some snacks that can be cooked and served, also passed around or single serves that does not require you to spend time moving around.

So the snack should basically take less time to get it done or baked over time for you to handle it during intervals.

Do 3 Tortilla based dishes from the list 

Guilt Free Indulgence 

Whip up delicious dishes by replacing all refined ingredients with whole grains/fiber rich ingredients, butter with oil etc

Ice Creams all the way!

Do I need to explain further?

Special Theme – BM Pair

BM Pair – Whoever opts for this theme will be paired with others and each have to cook from each others blogs.
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.
