Thanks to everyone who participated in the October Simplicity Parenting Carnival! It was a great success! We hope you’ll join us again, Justine at The Lone Home Ranger and Emily at S.A.H.M. i AM, for another simplicity parenting carnival. If you’re joining us for the first time, feel free to check out the May, June, and August carnivals as well! Read more about our carnival and future topics here

the lone home rangerNovember 2012: Food
Do you like food? Are meals an important part of your daily family rhythm? Do you cook gourmet, local, all organic meals from scratch three times a day? Do you prefer freezer meals? Paleo? Sugar free? Real butter?

We’d love to hear about how you feed your family while keeping it simple. What about the food you cook is important to you? How do you prioritize and compromise? Does availability, price, and season influence your choices? Do you throw all your usual habits out the window during the holiday season?

Spend some time in the kitchen this month and let us know how you do it–whether it’s a favorite, no-fail recipe or your tips for getting the family to the table together, tell us how you balance food, family, and simplicity. As always, you don’t have to answer all these questions directly. We just want to get you thinking!  

Submission Details
If you’ve never read nor participated in a blog carnival before, a blog carnival is a chance for different bloggers to share posts regarding a specific theme or topic. The November submission deadline is 11:59pm EDT Tuesday, November 20th and the carnival will be posted Tuesday, November 27th.

Please write a new post for the carnival and do not post it until the day of the carnival. Email your blog post to Emily at emilysahmiam {at} gmail {dot} com and fill out other necessary details using the embedded Google document submission form below by 11:59pm EDT Tuesday, November 20th. We will email you with further instructions prior to the carnival day. (Note: If you need help learning how to determine a blog URL in advance, Lauren Wayne @ Hobo Mama provides a great explanation. She also has many other blogging tutorials available here.)

Finally, keep it clean, stick to the topic, check your grammar and spelling, and don’t use this carnival as a platform to put others down. We want this carnival to be useful, supportive, and fun! If you have any content-related questions, feel free to email Emily at emilysahmiam {at} gmail {dot} com. Technical questions go to Justine at lonehomeranger {at} gmail {dot} com. We reserve the right not to accept posts we find inappropriate for this carnival.

Thanks for recording your submission! Don’t forget to email your blog post submission to Emily at emilysahmiam {at} gmail {dot} com. Also feel free to share this carnival with others! We’re using the Twitter hashtag #SimParCar. We are also collecting great simplicity parenting related ideas on this Pinterest board.
