The 31 Day Writing Challenge was started several years ago by The Nester (Myquillyn Smith). For 31 days in the month of October, bloggers everywhere are challenged to write on a topic of their choice.
I decided to do the challenge this year for a couple of reasons. First, it will give me a break from thinking up new topics to write about for a month. Second, it will get me to try some new recipes in the kitchen. If something exciting comes up that I just have to blog about, I will do two blog posts that day.
Here is my plan: Each day, I will make a new recipe from a new cookbook. I stopped by the library today and picked up seven cookbooks to get started. I will review the cookbook and the dish I make. I will make a variety of things: appetizers, soups, salads, side dishes, main dishes and desserts.
Don't worry, every single recipe will be simple to make. You know I don't do complicated cooking.
Can't wait to start! I already have tomorrow's recipe selected.
