Hello again, I hope you’re all outside enjoying this beautiful sunshine. I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog this week as it’s half term and we’ve been far too busy enjoying ourselves with trips to the beach, zoo and local country parks, we’ve even managed to sneak in a couple of BBQs in the evening too (well it is National BBQ week 🙂 ). What have you all been up to?
Once again I’m back with my monthly monthly #FoodYearLinkup the place to share and discover lots of foodie inspiration for events in June. Once again it’s absolutely jam packed with events so hopefully there’s plenty here to inspire you.
As always there were so many brilliant posts linked up last month and I was particularly drawn to all the homemade bread for Real Bread Week (I mean who doesn’t love freshly made bread?)
First up we’ve got this Mashed Potato Bread from Suzy at Sudden Lunch which is perfect if you got a bit carried away when you were cooking and have some mashed potato to use up – there’s also a flat bread version of it too. Next there’s this No-knead sourdough loaf from Jac at Recipes Made Easy, it also includes instructions for making your own sourdough starter so there’s no excuse not to give it a try. Finally there’s this Stand Mixer Focaccia from Sarah at Maison Cupcake where all the hard work is done by the machine.
So what’s the theme this month?
As always, I’d love you to come and link up any foodie posts relating to the events in the Food Blogger’s Calendar for June.

If there’s an event missing from the calendar that you’d like to link up a post for, that’s absolutely fine, just make sure you let me know what the event is in the comments so I don’t get confused 🙂 .
To join in with the #FoodYearLinkup…
- Click the “add your link” button and add your link with a picture to entice everyone to come and have a look.
- To make my life easier I’d appreciate it if you could leave me a quick comment letting me know which event you’re linking up for (it helps me to tweet them at the right time).
- Join me in visiting the other linkers making sure you comment on at least one (I’m more than happy for you to link up several posts, but if you do you should go and comment on at least one other post for each one you link).
I’d also love it if you’d add the #FoodYearLinkup badge to your post so your readers know where to come to find lots of other fun foodie posts (you’ll find the code towards the bottom of this post).
Throughout the month I’ll be tweeting every entry and if you tweet me (@CharlottesLK) using the #FoodYearLinkup hashtag to let me know you’ve linked up I’ll make sure I include you in the tweet. I’ll also be pinning every entry on my dedicated #FoodYearLinkup board and may include my favourites in round up posts for a selection of events throughout the year. The tweets and round up posts may also include images from your post. If you’d rather they didn’t then just let me know in the comments.
So what are you waiting for? Link up up right here…
