But before I get into this month's theme, I want to take a moment to thank you all so much for your patience and understanding, and all of your prayers and emails while I stepped back a bit from blogging to care for my father-in-law. I am very happy to report that is he doing so much better. It's been a good 6 weeks since he's had any kind of anxiety attack or depressive episode. It's a major breakthrough and we couldn't be happier about it. I know he isn't completely out of the woods yet, but slowly and surely we are all getting back to our normal routines and activities, which for me includes blogging on a regular basis. (More than just once a week.)
I had hoped to bring back The Food of the Month Club last month, but time got away from me. But that's not happening this month. With the kiddies going back to school in just a few short weeks, this month's theme is one I'm sure many will appreciate...Back-to-School Recipes!
And I'm not talking just bologna sandwiches and/or bean burritos! (Which is what I always carried in my Mork & Mindy lunchbox.) The Back-to-School theme includes:
- Back-to-School Lunches
- Quick & Easy Breakfasts
- Afterschool Snacks
- Bake Sale Treats
How to Participate in The Food of the Month Club:
1.) Visit La Cocina de Leslie at the beginning of each month to find out the Food of the Month Club theme or ingredient.
2.) Cook up something delicious according to the Food of the Month theme or using the Food of the Month as a main ingredient.
3.) Post your Back-to-School recipe(s) on your blog. You can submit more than one recipe, but no more than 3. All posts must be current. (Your post must link back to this announcement post!)
4.) Come back to this announcement post and add your Back-to-School link(s) to the Linky Tool widget located at the bottom of this post. Then leave a comment so we don't miss out on your dish.
5.) Show some love to the other entries by visiting and commenting on their posts and maybe make a new foodie friend in the process.
6.) Have fun! And share about The Food of the Month Club with your friends.
*Linky will be open until 11:59pm (EST) on August 31, 2013
