My Monthly Mingle

MonthlyMingleBanner Template2012-II Kopie

I love entertaining and with this virtual mingle I'd like to invite you over to join me and my guest hosts for a bit of fun, story telling and hopefully a lot of laughter.



The Monthly Mingle runs from the 1st through to the 30/31st of the respective month. The theme and deadline to the Monthly Mingle will be announced on the last weekend of the prior month. This deadline is only the specific date the actual theme ends on and the date you should send me your entry by. It is not the date you must post your entry on your blogs.

This mingle should be fun and flexible. So, don't stress yourself! If you are cooking up something in your kitchen and think this could be an entry to the actual theme, then send it over.

Here’s how it works:
  1. Create a dish that fits the respective theme as described in each announcement
  2. Post about it on your blog during the relevant deadline (entries must be in English, please).
  3. Your creation must exclusively be prepared for the current Monthly Mingle theme and cannot be submitted to any other blog event.
  4. You must provide a link to this post and/or the announcement post and send the details to me or the guest host (see below).

Please check the Monthly Mingle Calendar below for details on who is currently hosting the Monthly Mingle.

I hope I have thought of everything. I know I am the typical fretting hostess, but enough of all the fretting and let's get on to the party!

For our guest hosts I have also created a Google calendar, which you can use to your advantage for reminders etc. Once we have set up the dates I will add your event to the Google calendar and send you an invite to sign up for it.

  1. Monday is still good three days away, Meeta. Don't do this to us. God, I can't bear the suspense...

  2. I may even cook for this...that way, you know you'll have someone to make fun of :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Vaishali sweetie,

    ;-) It is the suspense in all good things (movies, books etc.) that keep us coming back. I think we both living in Germany will have a good time with the theme!

    Alex, I am shocked! ;-) I think I speak for all my fellow bloggers ... no one will make fun of anything you make. I will be honored if you take part. Monday I'll announce the theme!

  4. I'm really looking forward to this :o) I'll definately be taking part!!!

  5. I already noted your event post, the day you posted it- and no way I'm missing it :) I had thought about making this weekend breakfast blogging public, but was wondering about the response as my blog isn't one of the hottest visited ones yet- But if you think it can be done, it will be a wonderful idea...Do give me a few tips ;)

  6. Meeta,
    It's Monday morning. Where's the theme? How do you want the Football to come? Oops, did I let out a secret? :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Phew! After massive trouble with Blogger I have finally managed to post this. The Google Blogger forum was on fire the whole day. Apparently Blogger was having some serer trouble and bloggers all over the world were not able to post. But it seems to be OK now.
    So, Vaishali, here is the theme! To my first mingle Football's coming home! Look forward to having you here!

  8. This is a fabulous idea. I must remember to take part.

    Fabulous blog btw :)

  9. Looks like fun. I would love to participate, but have you decided yet what the August theme will be? Or is this post not being updated?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi Erin,
    The August theme will be announced sometime on the weekend of the 16/17th. Right now "Grill it!" is the current theme and you have till the 15th to send in your entries.

  13. Hi Meeta,
    I just wanted to know about the MM that I am so excited to host next month. Please let me know, whether I should a theme or you'll suggest me one.

  14. Hi I would love to host a event in Feb do let me know thanks

  15. Such a brilliant idea! I don't have a cooking blog anymore, but I'd love to do a fashion-themed version of this!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have done my South African Mingle, I filled in the entry form, I hope it went through - didn't see any confirmation.

  17. Hi Meeta,

    What a fabulous blog and such refreshing photography..

    If you're repeating this in 2011, I'd love to host. Since my blog features slow-cooking, that would be my suggested theme but soups, stews and chillis would also work.
    Best,

    Jennie

    Cheers,

    Rosa

Thank you for visiting What's For Lunch, Honey? and taking time to browse through my recipes, listen to my ramblings and enjoy my photographs. I appreciate all your comments, feedback and input. I will answer your questions to my best knowledge and respond to your comments as soon as possible.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy your stay here and that I was able to make this an experience for your senses.
