Like every year , the new year has begun !
So let me begin by wishing you all a very Happy , Healthy New Year !
Time to look back and gather some memories , right ?
With our 75th BM meet we were all gearing up . This time the meet was in Delhi and we decided to take a side trip to Mathura, Vrindavan and Agra. We had some fresh faces who were joining us and we were looking forward to these new faces . Since the meet was in Delhi , I looked into most of the arrangements. I was keen to take my foodie friends on a long Food tour to Old Delhi , which is the hub of Street Food. You could read in detail about this tour here. The BM meet is not only about eating and having fun , it’s also about what we learn from these meets . This meet we took up a baking class and had as many as 12 students. Our baking gurus Gayathri and Veena handled the show very well . Rest of us were there to help . Don’t miss on our wonderful exotic bakes , read on the details here .
The hangover of the meet lasts a while and leaves us with sweet memories , but slowly we get back to our daily rut .
On the blogging front , the regular three day BMs follow , but of course the April and September Mega Marathons have a very strong hold on my mind . This April I chose to bake 26 Eggless Cakes
from various countries . It is definitely hard to consume so many cakes but with planning I had no issues in using these cakes. My friends and neighbors were the most happy people .
The September Mega Marathon
was all about protein . I worked on different themes like Salads, Thalis , Biryanis, Kebabs and Recipes with Nuts and Seeds . The theme gave me a great learning experience . I particularly enjoyed the Biryanis and Thalis . My passion for Thalis made me work on Parsi Cuisine
which I had never tasted . It definitely was a task to work on these Thalis and select a menu which would be protein rich and at the same time compliment each other .
Post September I immediately started working on April Mega Marathon 2018 . I know you guys must be thinking ,”What a crazy lady ! Well , I just did a couple of posts as I knew the next few months would be terribly busy . During these few months I have tried to post recipes from my Thalis .
This is one year my girls could not make it in December , so I decided to participate in the annual Bakeathon . This was the first time I participated and trust me I pulled out everything from my drafts ! Bakeathon was not planned and since I clubbed BM and Bakeathon I had mixed recipes . I hope to fair better in the next Bakeathon .
December, a month which is normally full of hustle and bustle every year was rather quiet , I had to go through a leg surgery, which made me rest , but does that stop me from typing and browsing ! That’s for you to guess:))
Before I end I must say that my blogging credits go to Srivalli, our team leader, my co bloggers – I wait for them to read my posts and comment, not only that I look forward to reading their blogs and discovering new recipes. Of course I cant miss my family who have to eat what I give and that’s how I blog.
Looking forward to a brighter , healthier , happier 2018 !
