I start every single day with a resolution to control what I eat. And every single night I tell myself,”from tomorrow for sure!”
In short, I am not very proud of myself in this matter.
But, the feeling is totally different when you set about something and you meet your goal successfully. The goal for April was to blog continuously for thirty days as part of Blogging Marathon. And all of us did that, successfully.
I have thirty recipes for the month of april and I am as proud as a peacock showing off. Congratulations to everyone who participated and completed this task. And a special thanks to Valli for setting about doable themes, unending patience and putting all the effort to keep the group motivated. In fact, we are actually taking her support and enthusiasm as granted by now :-)
Check out the Blogging Marathon page to know who and all participated.
For me, personally, this 30 day marathon wasn’t that scary, because by April, I had about 35 recipes in my drafts section. So i was done even before BM started! Except for very few recipes (for matching the theme), I hardly made anything specific for BM 27.
And these recipes accumulate over a period of months. Like this post, for instance. I had to skip a BM for some reason, though the posts were done. It was for a Kids Delight theme of Cooking From storybook (hosted by Archana).
I had made an easy to make Owl cupcakes from Winnie the Pooh theme, a pancake from the book Eddie likes to Eat and a stuffed Empanada recipe (basically bread) from the book Little Red Hen.
I posted the pancake recipe a couple of days back. The bread recipe got posted long time back, but the owl cupcakes are still there in the drafts section. Hubby told it doesn’t resemble an owl in any possible way, so I was hesitant.
Anyway, I had ready-made cupcakes for the base. Oreo or any chocolate cream biscuit for eyes and chocolate chips for eyeballs and nose.
The above picture of glasses and cookie cutters and bowls are from a shopping spree at currimbhoys Adyar branch. The entire stuff cost me about 1000/- rupees (20 USD, approx.) and I had about 15 single items to show for it.
Anyway, let me close the last post of BM 27 on a big note : Thank You Everyone!
