The spring 2016 readathon has now officially ended, and with it this mini-challenge. Thank you to everyone who participated! I’ll be selecting and contacting the winner later today!
Welcome readathonners, and congratulations on making it to hour 22!
We all know it’s important to keep our energy up for maximum reading performance, especially in the twilight hours of a readathon (I can hardly believe there are only two hours to go—can you?). That means remembering to eat, which brings us to the point of this hour’s mini-challenge!
Your challenge: Share a favorite recipe or reading snack. Give us all some inspiration.
What’s in it for you: A randomly chosen winner will receive a $15 gift card to Amazon.com or BN.com (if you win, I’ll contact you, and you can let me know your preference).
How to participate: Leave a comment on this post, or share your recipe on your blog / favorite social media site. Either way, make sure you enter the drawing by filling out the form below!
How long you’ve got: This mini-challenge will remain open until the end of the readathon. I’ll select and contact the winner after that.
Now, I’d never ask you to do something I’m not willing to do myself. To get you started, here’s one of my favorite recipes.
Shredded cheese of your choice (I like cheddar for this)
How to do it:
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 Celsius).
Grease a ramekin or other small oven-safe dish. I use butter. Non-stick spray works fine too.
Place a layer of shredded cheese in the dish.
Crack the two eggs into the dish. If you like the yolks fully cooked, you can puncture them. If you like them a little soft, leave them intact. Season with salt and pepper.
Add another layer of shredded cheese, and top with the bread crumbs. A little goes a long way, so don’t be crazy with them.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Eat and enjoy!
That’s it! Have fun with the challenge! Happy reading, and happy eating.
