"Vegetable of the Week" with some Revised rules

Vegetable of the week has always been very close part of this blog and so of me.

In past I started this, to show case all the different dishes I make with the same vegetable, and invited others to be a part of this making it a weekly event. I used to select a new veggie each week and was posting a recipe daily with the chosen veggie along with entries from others, daily posting and daily round up has been like a routine for me also it was a lot of fun knowing many dishes with the same vegetable. Started with the whole intention to make different verity from a single main ingredient has always a good motivation for me to run this blog and event.

Now as time permits me , I am starting this “Vegetable of the week “ again with little bit modifications to its “used to be” rules and schedule :) .

With so many confusions in my mind to modify the original rules/duration of the event , along with that, as from many old buddies and well wishers suggested it , I have changed this to a monthly event , though the name I find so much loved by me that I am not changing it hence it will continue to be known as “Vegetable of the Week “ only, now the fact is we will celebrate it for 4 weeks (i.e. – a month ) .

Here are the rules to be a part of this resourceful event , I make it little flexible by not restricting current posts, and make this event fun for all- to be a part of it.

Rules :

  1. Cook any Vegetarian dish having “Vegetable of the Week “as main ingredient. You can also send already posted recipe, provided it should be linked to this event before you send it as an entry. You can send as many entries as you want.
  1. Send your entries for :Vegetable of the Week -Bottel Gourd on or before 17th july 15th July 2008 to blogpooja@gmail.com , Along with clearly mentioning

· Your name,

· Your blog name & URL,

· Name of the dish you made ,( don’t forget to mention the name of the dish you made. It happens many times that your post title is not indicating your dish name and hard to find from write up, So just be clear about what you are sending. )

· URL of your entry

Along with picture of the dish you cook - if possible resized in 300 pixel width .

In the subject line mention with the chosen vegetable and the type of dish you made. i.e, - if you make a soup using Brinjal the subject line should be “VoW -Brinjal – starter “.

  1. Follow all the rules as indicated here to make it easy for event holder at the time of round up. Be a nice participant :) ,I no longer intend to accept entries who didn’t mention their entry as link back to this "VoW" Post. If possible use the logo too (it takes time and effort when created :f :O)
  2. If you are a non -blogger send me recipe along with picture , I will post it here as a guest post by your name and include it in round up with your name.
If you don’t get my reply or comment within 2 days of sending your entry, Leave a comment as reminder, lately some of your emails happen to delivered in the bulk mail folder and I was not aware of it since some of your inquired about it.

I intend to publish Round up category wise with categories like, starter, main course, side dish , dessert , breakfast, snacks etc….

For this month we will be celebrating “Vegetable Of the Week - Bottle Gourd “ .

Here is the logo for it . Use it in your entry post if you can along with a link back to this post .

Do remember

  • This is your event, do it for delight. Participate if you can, send already posted recipe if you have any, or in future if you manage to cook up anything with that send me along mentioning it, I will keep it as update note in the round up section with the date you submit it.
  • The idea behind this event is to share and to know the verity of authentic and creative dishes we all make with chosen vegetable.
  • Along with that, I will always be happy to hear from you to choose any particular veggie you like for any particular month, you know I do care for your ideas , :) .

For any questions or suggestion get back to me at blogpooja@gmail.com , and have a nice time cooking many dishes to serve your love to all.


Btw , Have you tasted “Pineapple Lemonade “ yet ?

Hi:

Thanks for turning this into a monthly event. As a newbie...my site is PAYT POOJA...I feel a little overwhelmed with all the weekly stuff to get done.
As you so wisely say, i want ot do it for delight and turning it into a monthly event helps.
Please take a look at my site and leave a comment.
Thanks
Geeta

Pooja said...

WHitefieldbb,
there is no link back to your blog, also couldnt search your blog name from google blog search too.
so please update here with your blog link , would like to see the work of a newbie :)

Sailaja Prakash said...

Hi Pooja,

I came to know ur blog from my friend Archana's blog(Archysrecipes). When she has posted a recipe with 'Bitter-gourd' and sent the same to you.

But I was motivated by Mythreyee when she has sent an invitation for the sweet series event.

At the same time would like to participate in this event too.

Sailu.

Sailaja Prakash said...

Hi Pooja,

When I have seen your "Vegetable of the week" is Bottle-gourd I thought I know a 'break fast' dish, 3 side-dishes (curries for rice), a hot snack and would like to try a sweet (which we used to have at the time of functions at my native place). Almost all the main categories. I felt very happy. But I don't know still how many I can send to you. But will try to make them out.

Madhavi said...

Hi Pooja,

I just sent you my entry, hope u got it!!!

Regards,
Madhavi.
