    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…

    Musical Food? Theme: Explore Latin American Cuisine BM#77 Week 2 Day 3 I tried really hard to avoid Mexican Food for the above theme. I wanted to try something different but sourcing some of the ingredients was proving to be a task. I wanted to make arepas but getting some pre cooked white corn meal was difficult. The staple diet in Kenya is ugali made from white corn meal or flour but the corn is not pre cooked before it is ground. While I was doing some research on the Latin American Cuisine, (which by the way is so similar and may vary in small degrees, depending on which country it is from) I came across Flautas. What attracted me to the recipe was the…

    Superlicious  Theme: Explore Latin American Cuisine BM #77 Week 2 Day 1 Its my first time to join the Blogging Marathon. I’ve known about this group for quite a while as I follow most of the members. However, all this time I did not join the group as I found that perhaps blogging 6 new recipes in a month on specific days is a big challenge. However, I’ve just taken the plunge and am going to try out the waters. So what is this group all about? Well, it was started by Srivalli who blogs at Cooking for all Seasons and at Spice your life. Members blog for any 2 weeks but for 3 consecutive days on chosen themes. For my first theme I chose…

    DRASTIC CHANGES – America counts votes as India counts notes Early this morning as I sat at the computer to write my post for today I was in a dilemma whether to write about Children’s Day which is being celebrated today in India or about the shock that the PM Narendra Modi gave the whole nation on Tuesday 8th November 2016 at around 9p.m. My blog being also a sort of diary for me about important events and personal happenings, the issue on demonetisation won. As usual I was busy watching my Indian series when I noticed on my mobile that our apartment block group going a bit crazy. Checked the first message and read that from midnight all 500 and 1000 rupees notes will…

    Going all the way to Mexico Well not really, am at the moment sitting in London writing about a Mexican bread. Cemita originates from city and region of Puebla in Mexico. It refers to the bread as well as the sandwich itself. The bread bun or roll is made with flour, fat and egg and has sesame seeds on top. It has a brioche like texture, crispy on the outside and soft and spongy inside and slightly sweet. Found as street food in many cities and towns of  Mexico, as well as the streets of  New York and Los Angeles. The sandwich typically contains a white cheese, avocado,meat, onions, salsa and papalo herb. Papalo is very much similar to coriander. Some bakers added the herb…

    Floods everywhere These days the news is mostly on the floods in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya and how people are getting to work and back home. Traffic delays, flooded main roads, water in homes, power station shut down because it gets flooded, resulting in some areas going without power for hours or even days. Everyone is busy blaming the County. While that is true that the county did not prepare for the rains by cleaning out the drainage, its our fault too. Rubbish which includes plastic bags, plastic bottles, paper, cigarette boxes, food packages etc are all thrown mindlessly on the roads and the roadside. So many times I have seen hawkers leaving dirty and used plastic bags on the roadside, people having…

     amazing kids   Last Saturday our Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari hosted yet another successful poetry recital competition for children between the ages of  4 to 7.  Please do take some time and visit the website. Poetry recital not only helps a child to develop confidence, but also improves their diction, voice control, helps them to learn new vocabulary, helps with memorization skills and prepares them for public speaking.Like reading, poems too are the mind’s adventure for the children. Reciting and understanding the poems also helps them to pretend and perform actions and expressions accordingly. This year the poems given to the 6 -7 year olds were a bit long, but surprisingly they managed to memorize it within 2 weeks. We tend to underestimate a…
