Forward This Message Or You Will Have Bad Luck in the Kitchen for 13 Years
I remember in 3rd grade when I got my first chain letter. I was crazy excited to get mail and have something to do besides homework and soccer practice. Like the letter told me, I immediately wrote it out 7 times and duly sent it across the world, for fear of thirteen years of bad luck. I can’t remember if I got a letter back, or my freckled face was the evil punishment.
It wasn’t until high school that the chain letters went ’round again. Email was new to me and I happily forwarded on crazed messages for fear of bad sex for life. But soon that grew tired too.
Now, I get much tamer, even domesticated chain letters.
I don’t normally participate in these things, but I’m trying to cook more so I thought what the heck! It doesn’t take long and if it works you should get a lot of great new recipes. Instructions are below 🙂
You have been invited to be a part of a recipe exchange, and I hope you will participate.
Please send a recipe to the person whose name is in position 1 (even if you don’t know them), and it should be something quick, easy and without rare ingredients. Actually, the best one is the one you know in your head and can type right now. Don’t agonize over it; it is the one you make when you are short of time.
After you’ve sent your recipe to the person in position 1 below, and only to that person, copy this letter into a new email, move my name to the top (1) and put your name in position 2. Only mine and your name should show when you send your email. Send to 20 friends. If you cannot do this within 5 days, let me know so it will be fair to those participating.
You should receive 36 recipes. It’s fun to see where they come from! Seldom does anyone drop out because we all need new ideas. The turnaround is fast, as there are only 2 names on the list and you only have to do this once.
1) Name / Email
2) Name / Email
I’ve gotten a few of these over the years. And I almost tried it once, just for a blog experiment. But somehow forgot about it when a work email would pop on the screen.
But maybe I’m missing something. I’d love to know if anyone received a useful, interesting, inventive (and not a cream of mushroom soup casserole) recipe from one of these chain letters.
