Welcome to the #TheFoodCalendar for August. I for one am getting very excited about the Olympics this month, so expect my blog to be very quiet over the next few weeks as I’m glued to the coverage on TV (and probably on my phone, iPad and radio all at the same time 🙂 ). I’m also looking forward to the return of the Bake Off but I can’t find a start date for it anywhere (so it’s not on the calendar yet), I’m guessing it’s been pushed back because of the Olympics coverage – if anyone knows when it starts then tell me because I don’t want to miss it!
What’s on in August?
1 June – 31 August – Breast Cancer Care – Strawberry Tea
5-21 August – 2016 Rio Olympics
8-14 August – Afternoon Tea Week
8-14 August – National Allotments Week
22-29 August – Caribbean Food Week
25 August – National Burger Day
If you’re looking for some recipe inspiration for these events then take a look below as all month other fabulous food bloggers will be sharing their recipes. I’ve also got plenty of Pinterest Boards related to these events so make sure you take a look at those too and if you’re tweeting or instagramming about any of these events then don’t forget to use the #TheFoodCalendar hashtag.
Add your recipes to #TheFoodCalendar
If you’re a food blogger than I’d love you to come and share your recipes for the events in the calendar this month.
- Add your post(s) to the linky at the bottom of this page.
- Share a post/picture/thought about any of the events using hashtag #TheFoodCalendar on Twitter and/or Instagram (you can also tag me @CharlotteLK on Twitter and @charlotteslivelykitchen on Instagram if you like).
- Pin your post to my dedicated #TheFoodCalendar Pinterest board – to join the board make sure you’re following me (as it won’t work otherwise) and then leave your Pinterest ID in the comments and I’ll add you.
Once you’ve done that then go and share the love with some of the other bloggers joining in – comment on some of the other links, like/retweet on Twitter, heart/comment on Instagram or Repin some pins from the Pinterest board. I’ll be reading, tweeting and commenting on all the posts shared.
You’re also more that welcome to add the #TheFoodCalendar badge to your posts to let others know all about it (you’ll find the code at the bottom of this post).
By linking up your posts you’re giving me permission to use an image from the post in future roundups (with credit and a link back) and also to share the post with an image on social media. If you don’t want me to do either of these then just let me know in the comments.
