Blogging Marathon # 55 – 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

Sharing is caring!

This announcement is for August 2015, so everybody has a month’s time to get prepared. Then it will be time for the Mega BM during September. Time surely flies!

Before going into the new themes, here are the links to some of the BM related pages.

The current 2015 BM details can be found in the Blogging Marathon Page.
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

Now lets move on to the August month themes.

Since we have a month to prepare, please avoid doing last minute posting, prepare ahead and schedule, which should give you enough time to read the fellow participating blogger’s post in leisure.

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.

Healthy Family Dinners

As the theme name says, cook any 3 healthy dinners with your family and share with us. The choice is yours and there is no restriction on what you cook. Obviously I would expect something elaborate yet healthy for your folks.

Cook 3 Stuffed Pastas

I know we have been cooking lot of Italian off late, I thought we still have a long way to go in covering the wonderful cuisine. So in the same lines, I thought I could ask you all to cook 3 stuffed Pastas. For ideas, check out this page.

Nutella Galore

I know I am partial to Chocolate, however ever since knowing Nutella, its become a family favorite, or atleast my kids. So why not make more with the Nutella and enjoy. The star ingredient is Nutella and I would expect you to cook a dish featuring this sauce.

Make in a muffin

I love mini and single servings. That’s exactly what you can do, when you start cooking in a muffin. The dishes can be sweet, dessert or main dish as well.  You could get as creative as you can.

French Cuisine

Select the french cuisine and do one category a day. All three days should not be the same.

No-Bake Desserts

No Bake Dessert refers to anything that’s served as a dessert and not involves baking. It could be no bake cheese cake or bars or anything that you could think of.

Special Theme – BM Bookmarked

It can be anything bookmarked, so check your bookmarks and cook them away!
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!
