    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #161 GANESH CHATURTHI RECIPES Ganapati Bappa Moriya, Mangal Murti Moriya The whole of India will be chanting the above and getting ready for the Ganesh Chaturthi, Vinayak Chaturthi or Vinayak Chavithi festival.  To find out what the chanting actually means watch this video. This festival marks the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It is believed that when Lord Shiva was away, Goddess Parvati created Ganesha from sandalwood paste to guard the door while she went for her bath. Lord Shiva returns and Ganesha doesn’t recognize Lord Shiva and Lord Shiva had no idea that Ganesha was created by his wife Parvati. A fight occurs between the two as Ganesha would not allow Him to enter.…

    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 THEME: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET Next week I’m traveling to Canada to visit my son. Excited? Yes. Have I started packing? No. I know last minute I’m going to be running around like a headless chicken. I need to put away the spices, grains, flours, lentils everything in the fridge. I hate this part. The weather here is so humid that food gets spoilt within a month in not stored in the fridge. I need to still make a few goodies to take for him. I need to pack. I was joking with hubby dear that he might as well convert one of the bedrooms into a cold storage. Oh well, let me just relax for a bit and…

    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #88 THEME: KID’S DELIGHT – HEALTHY DRINKS – WEEK 3 DAY 3 I constantly to get to hear mums complaining about kids not eating. They tend to force feed toddlers and as a result meals becomes a constant battle between the mother and child. Your lunch time may not be your child’s lunch time. When my kids were growing up, my mother in law and I followed one rule, feed the children when they were hungry. No child can go without food. At some point they do feel hungry. Make meals an enjoyable part of their lives and not a chore or a battle. The other rule we followed as the kids grew up was, they ate what we ate. No special…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 25 I cannot believe that the mega blogging marathon is nearly getting over. However, that does not mean we can relax and breathe. I know already some of my fellow members have already started preparing for the September Mega Blogging Marathon. I still have to begin my search for the theme. For Day 25 the letter is Y. Not many options with Y.  I had youtiao from China in mind. It looks like churros but is not sweet and is served with congee or milk. As I didn’t want to repeat the country I had to cancel youtiao as I made xiao mi zhou  from China. After much thought…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 11 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper”    Yesterday was a crazy day. I had invited guests over for dinner. I tried posting my recipe for Day 11 in the afternoon and couldn’t as there was no internet. Then I got busy with dinner. When my guests left, I cleared up the kitchen and thought I’d try to post the recipe and still no internet. Usually after a dinner party I find it difficult to fall asleep quickly. Maybe because I was tired and it was very humid. Kept on checking for the internet again and again (its at times like…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 8 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Yesterday we were invited to hubby’s uncle’s birthday. He is in his 80s. Still pretty strong, but as he is aging he tends to talk less.However that is made up with all the chit chat that my aunt does. She’s a very lively person and loves to talk.  The party went well. It was just relatives and a handful of people they know. All was good, the food, the liveliness and the youngest at the party was about 9-10 months and the oldest being our Uncle. What got me thinking during the party was…

    Healthy Dessert For Kids Theme: Kid’s DelightBM#85 Week 3 Day 3    During my last trip to Montreal, during the weekend we decided to go to the Old Port area. It was bustling with people, it was a very hot sunny day, many food trucks were around selling food, desserts etc, stalls selling hats, sunglasses, souvenirs, and so many things. While most of the Canadians and tourists were enjoying the sweltering sun, I was looking for some place to sit under the shade. I  cannot bear really hot weather. It just zaps all my energy and I feel so sluggish. I finally found some place on the bench under a tree and right in front of the truck selling chocolate dipped frozen bananas. The choice…

    For Little Angels Theme: Kid’s Delight – Chocolate DishesBM#85 Week 3 Day 1   Its the first time that I’m actually making something with kids in mind. Mine are all grown up and now treat hubby and me like kids! Don’t do this, don’t travel alone, call us when you’re going out, etc etc. Does that sound familiar? Are we getting a dose of our own medicine? My daughter in this respect is just too over protective. Sometimes I feel good but sometimes get irritated when she thinks I can’t think for myself. However, when she automatically holds my hand when we’re crossing a very busy road, I feel so loved. When my sons ask me if I need anything, its such a comforting feeling. When…
