Happy Holi, catching up and an Award.

Firstly I would like to wish all my blogger friends a Happy Holi.

May God gift you all the colours of life,
colours of joy,
colours of
happiness,
colours of
friendship,
colours
of love
and all other colours you want to paint in your life.
Happy Holi.

Together with the Holi celebrations, this weekend was a memorable one. Friday although a working day I was inundated with many calls and beautiful messages full of Birthday wishes. Friends and family showered me with flowers, chocolates, gifts, cookery books and gadgets to fulfil my passion for cooking .The day although hectic at work flew by, my hubby was stuck in a meeting and the day was over before it had begun .However the weekend made up for the lack of celebrations on Friday with a weekend away, doing fun things like shopping, wining, dining and even saw the movie My name is Khan. When I thought the weekend was finally over  I was surprised by  a beautiful cake made by my daughter, such love and attention were put in it that it out weighed any shop bought professional cake. Its moments like this that make beautiful memories to keep forever. Although a year older I will say I am a year wiser now.

Last but not least I had another surprise from a blogger fellow friend Sree.He has given me this award. Many Thanks Sree this one I will treasure. I pass this award to each and every person that visits this blog as my appreciation for your loyalty and support and of course not forgetting all the wonderful and inspiring comments behind.

In the mean time please do drop by simply.food the sister blog which I am  currently updating daily.

New events, New openings and a Dream…..

Finally new events, I am updating this blog with a new post. Its ages and I do feel bad neglecting angels ~thoughts. Its not that I am out of literacy posts or that I have lost inspiration   but I am currently working on cultivating my culinary skills at my alternate blog simply.food.  I am concentrating on developing simply.food and moving it to a new direction. Spending almost all my free leisure time, I have been busy cooking, baking, photographing, editing, cutting and finally posting and making my mark in the foodie blogosphere.

The benefits of it are that my family and friends are getting an array of treats and delights to sample and savour. Some creations have been successful and others I hate to admit have been a kitchen disasters and only suitable for the trash bin. This however has not put me off; on the contrary it has reinforced my passion for cooking with a vengeance. Not only that but I have become a shopaholic in the bake ware and kitchen  departments, where I have been feasting my eyes new tablecloths, crockery and unusual dishes in weird and wonderful  shapes and sizes.

In addition, I have been practising with my camera too, although I have yet to find a suitable photographic class.In the mean time with the help of google uncle once again I  am self teaching macro photography ,again I hate to admit I have had some  good and some not so good results. But still it’s all a learning curve and I am having great fun discovering new ideas .I only wish there were more hours in the day as I do love my sleep also.

Now for the new openings, All the effort and hard work has certainly paid off, I am pleased to say that simply.food has finally being noticed in the virtual world.  As from February 2010 Simply.food will be featuring a regular recipe in a magazine called HOMEOBUZZ published on a monthly basis in India reaching some 10,000 readers. Being an NRI I feel proud that an Indian magazine is publishing my recipes. Seeing my name in print is an exhilarating feeling.

I have rambled on about new events and new openings and lastly  the dream…….I would love to compile a book for my recipes and maybe even someday publish it. People say “Believe in dream and you can turn it into reality”, so lets wait  and watch, until then I would like to share this poem on dreams.

I dream about the friends with whom I’ll grow old,
I dream about the person whose hands I’ll hold,
I dream about being young and in love,
I dream about loved ones, looking down from above.

I dream of the places I’ll one day see,
I dream of being wild and free,
I dream of my house, high on the rocks,
I dream of the sand underneath my socks.

I dream of the people I’d love to greet,
I dream of the things I’ll say when we meet,
I dream of hearing their voices sing,
I dream of being happy with everything.

I dream of travelling with a map in my hand,
I dream of never coming back to this land,
I dream of finding myself – in sense
I dream of jumping far off this fence.

I dream of any things that one day I’ll know,
I dream of the freedom: a dream I won’t let go,
I dream of my future and marvel at my pride
As my heart is flying and singing inside.

Untitled – Why should all poems be titled?? This poem does not conform to usual standards…!!

Are you wondering why this post has such a strange title??? Me too  lolz!   :smile:………….No I didnt think of the title  name it has been passed to me via  a strange tag. Yes tagged once again ,that adds up  to 5 tags in the last 4 weeks!!!!! and yes I am slowly but surely working my way through them (other wise what few readers I have here ,will all dissapear from overload of me bragging about my self and my antics from sheer boredom!!! )hee heee see even I can laugh at my self!!

Ok back to the mentioned title,  sree-  from All in the mind passed this tag to me . I have been asked  to write some sort of abstract poem,  totally random and I guess  not edited about what ever is going through my current state of mind. Now those who are regular visitors to my blog will be aware that I am passionate about cooking and am currently concentrating on  my food blog  simply.food. <<<<I am trying very hard to improve it and take it to the next level.

For days I was thinking to write some sort of poetry for it , each time I thought of a line, I have been  jotting it down but in all honesty  thats  as far as it had got  and has been sitting  in the draft  post  ever since, well that is until now. So with out any further introduction here is the rough , unpolished  jotting of my poem.

Cinnamon spice and all things nice… 

Cinnamon clove and star anise
Fragrant aromas to tantalise and please
Cooking baking mixing with a whizz
Desserts, cakes and ice creams that you can freeze please.

Sweet and sour with a hint of bite
Maybe a salad for that something lite light?
Flour, eggs and butter milk
Chocolate soufflés that fall down and sink turn out like silk.

A savoury touch with some special spice
Something that gives a kick and goes with rice
Eastern, Western or a European dish
Culinary delights to earn you a kiss fulfil your every wish.

Day and night I think dream of food
I know for my waistline this is no good
So instead I write my creations in a blog
Hopefully one day it will be famous enough to flog log!!   🙂

As far as tags go I am supposed to pass this on to some of my fellow bloggers, however since the numerous numbers of tags that have been arriving here , I have now exhausted my list of persons I can tag so I am just going to say any one who reads this post please feel free to pick up the tag.

Last but not least “Thanks ” sree for landing me in this hot soup, I have most certainly felt being  sizzled, boiled ,grilled  and baked!!!!!

Thanks Indiblogger for letting me climb up your rank ladder.
