Monthly Mingle - Sensational Sides

Meeta from What's for lunch, Honey? holds a great monthly foodie event called the Monthly Mingle with a theme each month. Past themes have included one dish dinners, Spring Fruit Sensations, Bollywood Cooking and Appetizers & Hors D'oeuvres to name just a few.

This month I'm helping Meeta out by hosting the Monthly Mingle. Side dishes are so often neglected in our house, and I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that, which is why I've decided that the theme for this month's mingle is Sensational Sides the idea being that whoever wants to take part makes a great side dish using whatever ingredients you like and send it in for the round up.

Here’s how it works:

Create a dish that fits the theme of “Sensational Sides” as described above
Post about it on your blog (entries must be in English, please) and include a link back to here and Meeta's blog
Link to this post and send the details to me at ruth.e.babes[AT]gmail[DOT]com anytime from now until 13 October with “Sensational Sides” in the subject line with the following information:

your name
the name of your blog
the name of your dish and a link to the relevant post
a copy of the main photo of your dish 200px wide (and compressed so that it is below 1MB!)

Hope you can take part!!!!
