    EVENT: SHHH COOKING SECRETLY THEME: MIZO CUISINE The Seven Sister States have been a challenge where the cuisine is concerned. All these states depend on locally grown vegetables, fruits and herbs. So far we cooked from the states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya and now its Mizoram. Still got two more to go Nagaland and Tripura. The states we have covered so far tend to use quite a bit of meat for their everyday meals. Mizoram is no exception.

    EVENT:FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME:#184 PEGAN DIET Nope, its not a spelling mistake the word is definitely PEGAN. When Veena who blogs at Veena’s Veg nation suggested the theme, I too thought that she made a spelling mistake as the nearest I could think of was vegan. She quickly clarified that it was Pegan and sent a link for us to read. Last Monday was the day when we all, except Veena of course discovered a new diet  Pegan. I think after the theme was announced most of us spent the evening reading about it and discovering what its all about. Also what followed was endless discussions and I think all of us were trying to figure out what the others are going to make, but all guarded…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #168 CHAAT PARTY FOR DIWALI With Diwali, the Festival of Lights, comes not only the poojas and visits to the temples but also party time. Years ago our Diwali was marked with what we back then called ‘jaman’ meaning a meal. Diwali jaman was always at our place and it would be the traditional Gujarati fare with Gur na ladwa, 1 green vegetable, 1 sabji with a gravy and potato sabji, with two farsans like kachori, samosa, arvi na paan or dhokra. And not forgetting the dal, rice, pickles, papad, salad. Though that was a lot of hard work trying to feed around 20 -25 people, we all would look forward to this auspicious day. Nowadays gone are the traditional jamans at…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS-INTERNATIONAL DISHES DAY 14 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper”   When I decided to participate in this Mega Blogging Marathon, I knew immediately what I was going to make for the letter N. As some of you might have read my previous posts hubby and I spent last Dec in Bali. However, due to the unfortunate motorbike accident my daughter in law met with, we were not able to see as much of Bali as we would have otherwise. However, its the best bonding time we had with my son and daughter in law.    My son had booked a villa for us. In the evenings the receptionist…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 3 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” We are once again going through water cuts…you read right not power cuts but water cuts. We’re in the 21st Century and basic amenities like water, power and garbage collection are missing in the second largest city of Kenya. Its a shame! We live in what’s suppose to be the upmarket area on the island and we’ve not had piped water ever since my hubby’s family opted to live in this area. We heavily depend on the borehole which is not enough for 240 apartments. Now I have to get up early and race…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017   #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON   THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:22 As I was going through my files, I came across this recipe in the draft. I had completely forgotten about it. I had prepared this delicious and filling breakfast dish for the Blogging Marathon theme Breakfast for the month of August which I had to back out of as I got too busy with guests. It was during one of my visits to Jean Talon market in Montreal that I came across a stall that had made fresh corn tortillas. These were made with white corn and not the usual yellow corn. I bought a packet as I had planned to make Huevos Rancheros. Oh well, perhaps this recipe was…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017   #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON   THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:20    Do you ever feel that you don’t want to socialize at all? I don’t mean the internet or media kind of socializing but actually going out there and meeting people? Do you feel going out when you know you’re going to meet a certain group of people that you’re comfortable with rather than one that you’re not comfortable with? Confused??? Well, I know I should be putting on my saris and going out for garbas to my community hall but I just don’t feel like going. My hubby thinks that I’m still missing my family and that’s why I don’t go. If its my Lions Club meeting I want to go.…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:12 Kenyans get affected by the elections whenever they come by every 5 years… more precisely in the past decade or so. People now have a voice and make their opinions known to the public. Kenya went through its elections in Aug and the ruling party Jubilee won. The opposition took the matter to the Supreme Court and it ruled in their favor and so re – election of the President will take place again on Oct 17th (a case of rigging votes). While I praise the judiciary system for being fair and just, I’m more concerned about how the economy comes to a sluggish pace during the election year. During this morning’s…

    An Arty City – Montreal Street Art or Graffiti though mostly not legal in many countries, is art that is much appreciated by all. Its visual art created in public locations or places. Usually found on walls of buildings, sides of the highways, streets etc, usually in places where passers by can see it. It started as a form or way of expressing views on different matters to the public in general. Initially most artists used spray cans but today other medias are used like mosaic, stencil art, LED art, stickers, Lock ons (sculptures are attached to public furniture), wheat pasting used to make collages and papier mache. When you walk around Montreal City you will notice some sort of creativity be it paintings on…
