An event announcement!

Do you see life in colours like me? I even dream in colours! It is said colours influence your emotions and moods. Food tastes better with better presentation, and presentation is all about the right confluence of colours.

My food definitely reflects my mood – does yours? Yes? Then do join me in this event called ‘Food in Colours’ where we shall celebrate food with a different colour each month!

I will select a colour each month, and you can send me any vegetarian food, containing the selected colour predominantly. Could be a starter, main course, side dish, a dessert – anything as long as the colour for the month dominates.

The colour for this month & next is red. The rules are quite simple:

1. Raw vegetables are not allowed except if used as such in salads or prepared food!

2. Any number of entries are welcome as long as the posts are done between today and 27.08.08. I added this later as I got a few emails about posts made in July before the announcement of this event. (Thanks, Easycrafts and Kalva!)

3. The food item should be vegetarian which means no eggs.

4. If your food is cooked from any other blog or site please link your post with the name of the blog/site rather than ‘here’. Also link your post to this post announcing the event.

5. Email me at – sunshinemomsblog(at)gmail(dot)com, replacing the (at) with @ and (dot) with . alongwith these details

  • subject line – FIC Red,
  • Your name,
  • The name of your blog and its link,
  • The name of the dish and the link, and
  • A 300pixel wide photograph of the dish.
The last date is 27.08.08 at 10.00a.m. IST.

I would appreciate if you could use the above logo in your post, so that others who visit you will know about it. It is linked to the event announcement.

I shall put up the round up by the first week of September. If you are sending a combination please make sure red is dominant. Have fun all August with RED!

This is the first time I am hosting an event and I need your support to carry on the colour celebrations! Thanks!

  8. Was wondering about the no-post at your blog. When I saw ur earlier post, I noticed the change in labels and was wondering why based on colors.
    Good luck with your event. Nice theme. Count me in.

  9. Red is one of my favorite colors and it’s also such a zesty, appetite-rousing color! Nice event idea, Harini, and I’ll try and come up with something.

  11. Very nice concept Sunshinemom. Will definitely send my entry.

  12. Have you sent a mail to Sailu, to be included in the events calendar? I don’t see yours there. If you don’t know already, use the form there, with the last date and permalink to this post and she will include it there.

  13. A great idea for an event. I’m sure you will make a success of it.

  14. Please let me know if my beet greens usili, posted on July 18th qualifies for this event. Regardless, I’ll send another one too.

  15. That sounds fun! Wonderful event…

  16. Wondering where u went πŸ™‚ Nice event idea πŸ™‚ Love ur theme and specially color RED ! I am in 2 support u πŸ™‚

  18. Passionate About Baking

    Great idea S’Mom. You will not believe it, but I thought of the same concept 6 months ago, but the idea of managing an event with the rest of my life was too daunting. Good for you…will definitely post on Red. All the very best for your first event!! Cheers Deeba

  19. Wow!Great idea!Am sure it means natural colours and not synthetic colouring agents πŸ™‚
    Great theme!

  20. Priyanka, Anu, Neha, EC, Rashmi, Rekha, Uma, Jaya, Vaish, Aparna, Sorisha,Cham, Sowmya, Deeba, Sharmila – Thank U all so much for the enthu response. I need you all frnds:)

    Jayasree – I am sort of obsessed with colours – the brighter the better. Hey! Am glad you noticed the change:)

    EC – Nice yaar! I could send in the same recipe to yours and mine:)
    Which character is it in the logo? Doesn’t look familiar

    Vaish – You look smart in this pic, girl! For me red is cool, smart, sassy and passionate and orange is zesty! Looking forward:)

    Priyanka – And here I am!

    Madhuram – I think there is a problem there. My posts are getting updated once in a while. I think Sailu is dealing with many hitches like this one, and she is also trying to rectify them! About the usili, am sorry dear – am taking in entries from 27th onwards. Do post another one:)

    Deeba – I believe you, dear! I was wondering why no such event was there, probably because we already have click and DMBLGIT! Waiting for a rocking entry from you!

    Sharmila – Colors could be any as long as it is used in the food. I mean some items do recommend addition of food color but if you could send in one with natural food colours, it will be really nice and healthy!

  21. That sounds fun! Wonderful event…

  22. This is interesting πŸ™‚ Will definitely try to participate.

  23. Hmmm..thats what I was thinking exactly that I can post for ur and my event at the same time…but just this one month, next month my theme would be different…I took the display image from google…dont think it is a specific cartoon character..Will earlier posted recipes qualify for ur event if I add up ur link there ??
