I am completely to blame for this very late HotM announcement, Michelle discreetly probed and pushed me but my brain obviously went on vacation coming here. Anyway, better late than never. So I am proudly presenting you with a new theme for what remains of August and as a bonus, September as well: A as in August (and September). Do you realize what a incredible freedom of choice this gives you? Dishes with names beginning with A, an enormous amount of ingredients that begin with A and I am sure there are plenty of other ways to interpret this theme. But I am putting a little restriction on it, if you choose to go for an ingredient beginning with the letter A it has to be the main ingredient but apart from that, you are free to do what you want. And of course it has to be heart-healthy too: your entry should be low in saturated fats (lean meats and fish), be low in salt (sodium), and that you can be abundant with vegetables or fruit. If you want to get more information, check out our useful links in the right hand marginal. Please only use your entry for this event so that we can keep things centred on heart-healthy recipes and please link to the event as well. Send your entries to me at luculliandelights AT gmail DOT com before (your) midnightSunday 27th of September.
