Yay mofo!!! I am excited but so nervous because it's going to be much harder for me this year! Also, my theme last year (Veganizing Friends) was like my favorite thing ever and I feel like I can't beat it. But oh well. I am not doing tv stuff! I'm doing each week in a different city, with travel guides, food guides, restaurant reviews, and then recreating regional/cultural recipes at the end of each week. So not as funny but hopefully as fun?

I don't feel like I've done anything super epic since the cookbook challenge days but I can't fit in that much ridiculousness every year and it's the taking part that's important. Your theme sounds awesome anyway so I wouldn't worry and you can do more epic TV stuff next year.

I wanted to go with 'fork food shaming' - because it's a hot button topic of mine. you know how i hate the processed food popo...but i just was not sure how to say what i needed to say and do it for a month.

so last night i was talking with the boyfriend and i came upon a theme i touched upon in years passed: Target! i <3 target, i shop there like 3 times a week, more if the boyfriend does not complain. so i am going to show different vegan products you can buy from target, meals from target and more. it still says f-u to the processed police and it is something i can do within a months frame without being stressed.

Great idea! I love Target, and it will be really fun to read about all of your finds. It seems like you could still find a way within some of the posts to talk about your own take on processed and/or convenience foods.

Oh man, I just realised that the sign up deadline is tomorrow and I'm still swithering over a theme!

:) - it just seems like the less stressful option, that allow me time to write for zines & do other commitments!

I would love to do something about animals but I can't figure out how to relate that to food. Luckily there is still time to decide.

What about just a loose animal theme, that way you can do lots of things. Food shaped like animals, food named after animals (pico de gallo or something), food (not) made from animals, foods made out of foods other animals eat (like greens and bunnies or birds and seeds or nooch and your dogs). And then links to a different animal rescue every day.

ETA This is the first time I'm not participating, and I'm a bit sad about that. But looking forward to reading and commenting.

I decided to do top tens as my theme but those are awesome ideas. Food that's named after animals but isn't is a great idea. If you feel like guest posting I'd love to have you!

My theme was going to be novelty animal-shaped food but I've realised I only have about 8 ideas. I tried to do a bit of baking today to get a jump on it. It was originally going to be tiger bread, only instead of what people usually think of (textured top on a normal loaf) it was going to be a pizza shaped and decorated like a tiger. Well, I got to decorating the shaped dough and realised I didn't have any olives/olive paste, and then I burnt it anyway, and it's risen unevenly so it looks like a hump-backed cat!

I feel a NoFo coming on.

If it makes you feel any better, I saw the pic and could tell you were going for a cat shape!

Post it anyway! I loved it. Not everything has to be perfect theme perfect photo perfect light. I love seeing stuff like your hump-back cat.

Does anyone know when the blog roll will be released? I'm really excited to see who else is taking part this year.

Thanks rachell37 and pandacookie, I probably will post it anyway, at least I'll be setting the bar low for the rest of the month so people will know not to expect anything too fancy!

I hope someone who doesn't currently have a theme and isn't good at following directions or cooking does a fails month.

My blog isn't in the feed and I definitely signed up on 27 August. This happened to me last year too! Did I do something wrong?!

Yes, your feed address is wrong. We're working to get a list of these but it will take a few days.
