Everyday is special, but some days are more special. Like anniversaries. Or birthdays. And birthdays of your friends.
Today is one such special day. Our blogging buddy Valli- our Super woman, Blogging Marathon creator and veteran, is turning a year older today.
And we are here to wish her a birthday in the best way we can… A post with recipes from her blog. A foodie gift from foodie friends :-)! We are cooking from her blog – well, blogs! ( Did I mention that she has two blogs, 3 kids and a full-time job? And she manages all that!! Definition of a super woman fits aptly, I think. )
Anyway, I digress…
Birthday is all about celebrating the first day of our life on Mother Earth. The day we were born.Its special indeed in so many ways. Its a day where we spend most of it smiling without reason and catching up with the wishes in person and online.
I thought it will be special for her to wish her with the first recipe on her blog. A post that started off her online journey. A post that was received with a lot of love by the blogging world and eventually led to her second blog and so many more achievements. Yes, the first time…its always special :-).
I made Guttu Venkaya Kura from Cooking 4 All Seasons and paired it with her Coconut rice. That was our lunch yesterday. This is the first time I am making stuffed brinjal and I totally loved it.
I have to show you the stepwise pictures where you can see the eggplants in the gravy floating just like hippos :D. But that’s for another time, OK ;-)?
I decided to follow-up the delicious lunch with another recipe (her second recipe on her blog) for dinner. The Andhra special pesarattu and upma, served with tomato chutney and coconut chutney.
Again I digress. The focus shifted from Valli’s birthday wish to the food for a few, but understandable, minutes :D.
Valli, Have a great day and a wonderful year ahead! May it be filled with love, joy, family, butter and chocolate throughout the year!
Lots and lots of love, your BM friends :-)
