As I mentioned in my Friday Foodie Fix- Tomatillos post, this month I am hosting the wonderfully popular blog event Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free.
Naomi Devlin authors the blog Straight Into Bed, Cakefree and Dried and started this monthly event. Each month it’s hosted on a different blog with a different theme.
My theme for the event is Scared Silly!
First let me share what that theme means. These would be recipes using foods you were once scared to eat but then after you tried them realized it was silly to be scared of them. So recipes using that ingredient or that dish will be perfect. UPDATE: If you’ve never been afraid to try anything, you can write about someone else in your house.
As for me I was scared of beets. I’m not sure why. I still don’t crave beets but I do enjoy them in many forms.
Now how can you participate. It’s really easy and there are two ways. NOTE: you do not have to be a “designated” gluten-free blogger to participate, the recipe just needs to be gluten free.
First, if you don’t have a blog email me a photo and description of the dish or ingredient you were once scared to eat. Let me know why you were scared to eat that food if you can.
Second, if you do have a blog, simply publish your blog post with the recipe using that ingredient or dish that you were scared to eat. The deadline to send me an email with the photo and the link to the post is no later than midnight EST – Saturday, October 23rd. I will then compile them all and share them in a post at the end of the month. Please link back to this post in your post and don’t forget to mention Naomi and her blog!
I will post all of the entries on Thursday October 28th so make sure you come back to see what ingredients and dishes had us Scared Silly.
I hope you will join in and share your recipes. I think this is a very important topic to share along with being fun. We all might find some great new recipes for foods we are currently scared to eat. I also would like to know that I’m not alone in being scared to eat something as silly as beets.
Please share this with anyone and everyone. Use the Share and Enjoy! buttons at the bottom of this post. I would love to have so many submissions that I’m up late typing away.
Email your link and photo to diane at thewholegang dot org. You can use the quick email link-envelope- at the top right corner of the blog.
If you plan on participating let me know by leaving a comment, tell me on facebook or email me. Unless you’re too scared…..
