    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #212 LET’S CELEBRATE FALL It was in the year 2013 when hubby and I made our first trip to Montreal to visit our son. It was the first time we experienced the fall or autumn season. The colours of fall is truly one of nature’s miracle. When we reached Montreal early Sept the leaves on the trees were still green. By the end of the month the green leaves were changing colors. You get to see hues of yellow, orange, red and purple. Not all trees change colour during fall. Some of the more famous trees that change color are sugar maple(turns first yellow, then orange and finally red), red maple (turns dark red or yellow), bald cypress (turns orange red), black…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #208 MEETHE BANDHAN This week India will be celebrating both Raksha Bandhan day and Independence Day on the same date – 15th Aug. What is Raksha Bandhan? Raksha means protection and bandhan means to tie. India and Nepal are unique in the sense that the Hindus celebrate Raksha Bandhan every year during the holy month of Shravan. This is a special day for brothers and sisters. A bond that is so special between both. I know there are some families where sister brother bond is a bit frayed because of differences. However, eventually they come round and look out for each other. Raksha Bandhan symbolizes the eternal bond between a brother and sister, they can be blood related or not. I know…

    EVENT: A- Z CHALLENGE THEME : A DISH BEGINNING WITH THE LETTER C What is the A- Z Challenge? Well, we’re a Facebook group and every alternate month the participants make a dish with the  relevant letter. The group was started in May 2018 by Jolly Makkar and Vidya Narayan.  For September we have to post a recipe with the letter C. The star ingredient for the dish should begin with C. I must admit that when I was in Montreal, hubby and I enjoyed all the berries that were in full season. We also had loads of succulent, ruby red, sweet cherries. So cherries is what I used for this theme. I usually cannot plan well ahead for any of the group events that I’m…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:11 I have always envied bloggers who get all the ingredients they need for their recipes. However my hubby thinks otherwise. He claims that if I did have access to all the ingredients I’d be living in my kitchen,he would put on weight and my neighbors would not prepare food in their homes! Well, that’s not entirely true. There are days when I don’t even want to lift a spoon, forget about preparing anything. At that time making a simple khichdi too becomes a humungous task. Since Srivalli announced the Mega Blogging Marathon theme, Veena a co member and blogger asked me why I wasn’t taking part. I told her that I definitely will not manage…
