Blogging Marathon # 67 – 3 Day Marathon for 4 weeks!

Sharing is caring!

As months quickly roll by, I am here with yet another BM Edition Announcement.

This is for August 2016! It’s going to be BM#67

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

The 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
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 blogger’s post is mandatory.
The subscription to the group will be on monthly basis.

Go Nuts

Choose from the variety of Nuts available in your local and make a dish featuring that Nut as the Star Ingredient. The Nut should be the main ingredient and can’t be something you add as a pinch or less than a teaspoon. Nuts used should be in their dried form and not their fresh form. You can refer this page for reference.

Kabab Varieties

I am sure many of us love Kababs. With the monsoon coming on, I am sure this will be a great theme to do. Kabab should be served in a dry starter form and not included in any other dish. Can be from any cuisine or country.

Pick one appliance and make 3

Pick one cooking appliance and make 3 different type of dishes in the same gadget. The dish can be any course, cuisine. However, make sure all the 3 dishes are cooked in the same gadget. Like you use Microwave and make 3 different types like dry sabzi, starter, curry. Or different forms of sweets. Cooking on the stove top is not considered. However, you can showcase Pressure Cooker. Gadgets like Sandwich maker, waffle maker, Grill, Oven, MW are some of the gadgets for ideas.

Layered Dishes

Bring on dishes that are layered and cooked or served etc. Dishes under this can either be cooked layered or served layered. It’s your choice. However, the different layers should be showed. It can be sweet or savory from any cuisine.

No Bake Desserts

As the name says, you got to make 3 No Bake Dessert. None of the typical Indian Sweets allowed. It should be something western dessert category or the chilled dishes.

Triple the Dose! 
Make a dish in which the same ingredient is used in 3 types. Like Tripe Chocolate Cake where Cocoa, Chocolate, and a Chocolate fudge may be used. Or a Triple Cheese Pasta, where either 3 different cheese or pasta are used or cheese is used in three different ways.

Your dish can be a savory or a sweet.
