Comfort Food Roundup & MM 18

MM Comfort Food 01

This time round I think we have outdone ourselves! I invited you this time to join me at the mingle with your favorite comfort foods and you all came with baskets full of steaming soups, pasta, rice and so much more.

I was overwhelmed by the 90+ entries and excited to see what comfort foods you all enjoyed.

But as always let's just take a minute to check out the new theme for February!

Monthly Mingle February 2008 - One-Dish Dinner

Well after all these comfort foods that make us feel good from the inside, I thought it would be quite nice to have a get-together here we prepare simple food made in one pot.

This mingle I am looking for your "One-Dish Dinners." You can let your imagination run wild on this. Make a casserole, use your crockpot or bake it in the oven, the only rule is your entire dinner should come out of ONE pot!

Here's how it works:
  1. Create a dish that fits this theme. Blog about it anytime from now till March 10th, 2008.
  2. Email your entry with
    • your name
    • the name of your blog
    • name of dish
    • your permalink
    by March 10th, 2008.
  3. In the subject field of your email please state "Monthly Mingle - One-Dish Dinners"
  4. In your post please include a link to this post and/or the MM logo, so your readers get a chance to mingle with us.
  5. Please send only one entry per blog. If you do not have a blog, simply email your entry, with a picture (if you would like me to add a picture) to
  6. Although it's great to get entries from all over the world I have to insist that they be in English. If you have a Blog in another language I would kindly like to request you to post your entries in English as well.

Please make note of the new email address for the Monthly Mingle!

I'd like to remind those taking part to please check these guidelines carefully and when you send your emails to make sure all the required details are included. Also please check the permalinks you are sending and take a note of the deadline. You will find a comprehensive guideline and event etiquettes for event participation here.

Now get ready for some soothing and comforting food!
