Blogging Marathon # 54 – 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

Sharing is caring!

Finally after almost 4 years of starting Blogging Marathon, I finally sat down to create a logo for the group. I have been so thrilled ever since!

Anyway I have also done some housekeeping jobs. I have moved BM details to Archives, keeping the current year in the Blogging Marathon Page.

So if you want to check out older BM details, check the BM Archives
If you are new and want to join us, check out the BM Guidelines and Rules

Other than that, we are set to check out the next edition.

This announcement is for July 2015, so you a have month’s time to get yourself ready for the posts. Which means doing last minute posting, hurried comments will not be appreciated much.

I also decided I will be little more strict in handling late posts. I know real life sometimes becomes very tough to manage. However if you know it is going to be so, please do not sign up. I will understand. But if you are signing up, then I expect you to be prompt in posting and reading fellow BM blogs.

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 the BM 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.

One-Bite Appetizers 

Snacks that let guests leave one arm free to shake a hand, hold a drink…or grab another.

Vegetarian Italian For Dinner

Make an Italian for dinner and please your family, only it should be Vegetarian. There are lots of options for this theme, so please do not settle for simple and easily assembled dishes. Its going to be dinner and family time, so showcase as such!

3 Festivals across globe 

Select one festival from any country and cook the dishes that are prepared for that festival. It can be one dish or a combination. All the 3 days should feature different countries. One day can be from India but not your native state.

Festival here does not necessarily refer to a religious one. It can be any event that is celebrated as a mass and observed as a whole across a country.

For example I can do 1 day American, 1 day Italian, 1 day Rajasthan.

Deep-Fried Love 

It should be deep fried snacks. Only Snacks are accepted for this theme and no other category of food. Snacks that can be served to nibble on or as a light meal. Cookie style snack can also fit in this. It can be sweet or savory. All our Indian Traditional snacks are also accepted.

Lentils in 3 ways Filled up for all 4 weeks

Different lentils cooked in different ways. It can be a snack, starter, dal, gravy , Rice or even dessert etc! I leave it to you to decide. However make it in different ways with different lentils.

Easy school recipes / Single serve dorm recipes / MW recipes 

The options should be doable with a refrigerator and a MW. Should be for single serve, with ingredients that don’t need too much prep and won’t spoil quickly. This can be MW version or stove as well, if inductions are allowed in the dorm.

Your recipes can fall under either of the three options I have given. It can be all MW recipes or in combination.

Special Theme – BM Moderator’s Choice

Yep, you got it right. I have listed about 10 different ingredients. You can select any 3 and cook. You can also select 1 ingredient and do 3 dishes.
Kabuli Channa
Gourd Varieties
Soya Bean
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.
