I was happy knowing that BM was missed by my fellow BM'ers too. So here's a quick announcement, even though the themes are still forming. I don't want to delay it any more.
Do check back for the updated themes.
- Will have to post on all 7 days without fail
- Should follow the accepted theme all 7 days, meaning if you choose one topic like Rice, you should post all rice based recipes all 7 days.
- Should link to the Blogging Marathon page.
- Should actively give feedback on others post.
Seven Days of Indian Festival Food with Step by Step pictures
You can make either soups or salads in a mix of 3 days or 4 days, choice is yours. But you got to blog only these two options for all the 7 days. Let's not just make it only soups or salads, please!
Have leftovers on hand, then come up with ideas to make it more appealing and interesting. This can be for any course of meal, and any dish. All you got to do is, use the main ingredient which is a leftover from a previous meal and you dress it up as a new dish.
Update: Harini, who is going to guest host Kid's Delight wanted this theme to be converted to Kids special. Will be updating the link once she announces the event on her blog
This is a favorite theme of mine. I love reading out those traditional, regional special recipes being dished out for all 7 days. Please remember you should try to choose something that's locally famous or state wise. You can select any Indian State or Country you want.
Snacks in a jiffy for surprise guests
We are always in search of those quick dishes that we can make for surprise guests. In our parts of the world, it is still quite common for folks to just drop in uninformed, to meet you. And getting to know dishes that can be whipped within minutes will surely be a great boon. You can use store bought as part of the ingredients, but will have to keep the major part of the ingredients used as homemade. Like if you want to offer Bhel, the puffed rice, sev can be store bought, but you should be using up the chutneys you made. This is just an example, you can be more creative than this..:)
Cooking with Fruits:
As the name says, cook anything with Fruits, it can be any course of meal. But the main ingredient should be a fruit. Technically, eggplant and Tomatoes are fruits but I will not accept them..:)
