March 27 is Bake and Take Day!
"Bake and Take Day began in 1970 as a community service project of the Kansas Wheathearts in Sumner County. The Kansas Wheathearts, an auxiliary organization of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers, set out to share baked goods with family members, friends, neighbors, and those in need, generating goodwill in the community. The idea of a community member sharing a favorite recipe with someone special became so successful that the Kansas Wheathearts created a national Bake and Take Day celebration in 1973." link
On March 27th, bake something with wheat in it and take it to a friend, neighbor, or person in need. I'm excited about this and think its such a fun idea. Bake and Take Day is sponsored by wheat commissions across the country.
-The Kansas Wheat Commission is partnering with Stafford County Flour Mills Co to offer a cash prize drawing to participants. You can enter using the form on their website.
-The North Dakota Wheat Commission is also sponsoring this event and offering some recipes to try.
On March 27th I am going to host a Mister Linky here. I'd love for you to join us for Bake and Take Day and post about it on your blog. Feel free to share your recipe, photos, who you took the baked goods to and more! Come back here on March 27th and link up. One lucky participant will win a great book on bread baking and another will win an great little ebook What To Do With Your Kids In the Kitchen. Thank you to our sponsors, The Urban Homemaker and Heavenly Homemakers. For now, grab my button and help spread the word about this event.
Leave a comment and let me know if you plan to participate. I'm excited to see what everyone does. This would be a perfect time to try baking bread if you haven't yet, although anything with wheat in it counts. Do you have a favorite recipe you use for giving food gifts?
