OK… so what is all this I hear about F2 or Friday's Feast anyway?
The whole idea behind Friday's Feast is an attempt to promote all things food through a regularly occurring blog post that encourages the sharing of food related posts. You share your food related post with others the same way you share a dish to pass at a pot luck.
You've wet my appetite— now how does this work?
Every Friday I will post a topic based upon the current month's theme. If you want to participate and share a post that relates to this topic, just leave a comment and be sure to include a direct link to your post. I will then gather up the links and put them in the following week's post.
I realize that preparing a meal and preparing a post can be quite time consuming— so I have tried to make this part of the process as easy as possible. Don't think that you have to have a recipe to share in order to participate. Anything food related is fair game— and since food is one thing that I believe we all have in common, it should be easy to share them like you would for a pot luck dinner. I love stories— so if you have a food related story you want to share you can do that as well. You can even link to any post that you have written (even if it was from long ago). Since the topics change every month, this should give you plenty of time to find the ingredients necessary to submit your dish of a post to share.
Here are some of the monthly topics that I have thought of:
|January||Warm Dishes to beat the cold|
|February||Valentines' Day, Love|
|March||St. Patrick's Day, St. Joseph's Day, Green, Italy|
|May||Mother's Day, Kentucky Derby|
|July||4th of July, Summer|
This is by no means set in stone. So if you want to participate but the theme just doesn't fit— be sure to comment and let me know of a suggested topic. I like to improvise if I am lacking an ingredient when I cook, why not improvise by adding an extra topic or to so you can participate.
Speaking of participation… if you want to show your badge of courage and flaunt your participation— I have created a cruel badge that you can use. Just snag the code from the sidebar on the right or at the bottom of this post. If anybody wants to create one for me I would be eternally grateful. What I'm looking for is something that looks like two chunks of food shaped like the letter F frying in a pan. The more appetizing and real looking the better.
Since I love uniqueness— I will be using the abbreviation F2: instead of FF: and I encourage you to do the same. I want to use this abbreviation mostly because there are a lot of double letter memes out there that use FF: (Friday Fun, Freaky Friday, Far-out Friday, Fantastic Friday, etc., etc.)… and I want this one to be quickly found when you do a search. Of course, you can also use Friday's Feast: in your title if you choose.
I will be scheduling my posts to occur Friday at midnight Central Time so you can wake up on Friday and start planing your weekend.
