Eat to the Beat: The Finale (deadline extended)

I’m sure that, like me,  you have been overwhelmed with the holidays and everything else that comes at the end of the year. It’s such a busy time and the next 2 weeks will only be busier (at least for me)!

As a result, I haven’t even thought about posting anything regarding EttB, let alone make a dish. To that tune (ba dum ching!) I am extending the deadline for the final installment of Eat to the Beat to January 31.

Here’s the info:

For EttB, please make and blog about a food or drink that somehow relates to a song, an album, a band, etc. Maybe you’ll create a dish based on a song’s literal lyrics about food. Perhaps you’ll allude to a band’s name in your creation (Smashing Pumpkin bread, anyone?). Maybe your favorite band is from Poland or your favorite song is about Chicago, and you want to blog about popular cuisine in those locations. Were you listening to a particular song as you were cooking or eating a specific dish? As long as you explain why the food/drink you have chosen to make reminds you of something musical, it works for this event. From “On Top of Spaghetti” to “The Spaghetti Incident;” from Pearl['s] Jam to “She Don’t Use Jelly,” the possibilities are endless.

In your entry, please mention this event and also include a link back to this URL.

Then, email me at ellysaysopa [at] gmail [dot] com, and include your:

-name
-blog name and URL
-permanent link to your entry for this event
-picture of your food or drink (as an attachment or as a URL within your email)

If you don’t have a blog, no worries! Just send me an email with a picture of your food/drink and the story behind why you chose to make it.

I will send you a response email within 2-3 days of your submission. If you don’t get it, that means I didn’t get your submission. I try to check my spam as carefully as possible, but things sometimes slip through the cracks. So, email me again or leave me a comment here to make sure I get it.

I look forward to your submissions! Happy blogging, eating, and music-listening to all.

Hmmm, I need to start getting involved in blogging events – I will have to see how creative I can get with this!

Thanks for extending the deadline, Elly. I was starting to stress about how I was going to fit in a fantastic and worthy EttB entry!

I haven’t been too enthusiastic about cooking lately, but I’ll try to make it this time. Thank you for extending the deadline! I needed it.

Hi, I’ll be submitting a recipe inspired by the brilliant 90′s big hair band, Warrant, tomorrow. :) Sorry, bad band, but a good dessert dish. I’ve just had “Cherry Pie” on the brain!
