… you show me yours!
it’s a tough one this month but it really is harder and harder each month to come up with crafty ways to make sure you’re all playing to the rules. This time we all have to pick a random recipe for each other…!
… it’s quite complicated but pay attention and i’m sure you’ll all have a blast…
1 – I have used my random number generator to pair off everyone who took part last month, into couples.
2 – get in contact with each other via twitter / email / this blog (say hello, be friendly, follow each other for a start… this is the blogaverse after-all)
3 – let each other know how many cook books you have, assign each book a number and give the total number to your random recipes friend
4 – randomly select a number for each other (and therefore a book)
5 – once you have a book, let the other person know how many pages there are in the book
6 – randomly select a page number for each other
7 – cook the dish on that page
8 – never speak to that person again…
usual challenge entry rules apply… post your selection, link back to my blog, include the natty little logo and don’t forget to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
now, give it a day or two but if you can’t compete this month, let me and your Random Recipe Friend know and i’ll hook you up with someone else, or if you didn’t take part last month and want to take part then let me know in the comments below and i’ll add you to the list… or you could come to me with a blog buddy already and do it that way…
I realise that i’m asking quite a lot from you all but it’s been 6 months now and I do feel we can all afford to reach out across the blogaverse and make this work… so here’s the list:
