I realize this BRC has been a long-time coming but I think you will be pleased. Let me explain…
In August 2008, I challenged myself to cook and post one Ina recipe everyday for a week. I think I came pretty close to achieving my goal of posting everyday and wanted to repeat this idea this past summer by opening up the invitation to the BB group to join me. Somehow the summer slipped away though and here we are in the second week of October…not that I really mind though because this season usually yields some of my favorite types of food so choosing these recipes wasn’t all that difficult.
I’d love for you to join me in this challenge! Please keep reading for the instructions and recipes…
1. Choose any or all of the recipes listed below and post about them during the week of November 2 – 6. You don’t have the make all of the recipes during that week, just post about them. (HINT: schedule your posts early if you are unable to write a post everyday).
2. There is no set posting day for any of the recipes. The idea is to post one recipe each day (if you plan to make all 5 recipes) but feel free to post multiple recipes on one day if you want to.
3. I want to do a round-up post here on the blog so after you’ve posted, please send me one photo from each of the recipes you’ve chosen to post about. In this email, please include your first name, blog address, and the recipes for which you are sending me photos.
4. If you’re not a member of Barefoot Bloggers but have been hanging around here debating whether or not you want to join, I encourage you to join us for this challenge as well! I think this will give you a decent idea about what the group is like and will also give you the opportunity to participate in the Musings posts that will go along with each recipe. Consider it a “trial run.” 🙂
