IT'S TIME TO .. "THINK AND THANK" (100th POST)

Hi Everybody …

To my pleasant surprise, yeah I have covered 99 posts and hitting my 100th. I decided my 100th post should be different and diverse, thanks giving post. This time no recipe but I am presenting and putting forward my expression thro my simple words and a little effort to show my gratitude on my beloved ones.

First of all I m very lucky to have such a wonderful husband who is encouraging me on my every post, my photos, my cooking etc. and the criticism starts from my house, the moment they tasted the dish I prepared. My kids love to have my each preparation with their gr8 words… I can still remember my daughter’s word, on tasting my paneer masala “Amma u r a good cooker ma”… I was confusingly looking at her wat? Cooker! Darling… Then she explained one who cooks tasty food is called good cooker ma….. (Cook-cookerAeh!) Hoh! No! I could not control me and hugged her. This has happened when she was 4 yrs. Thank you my dears…..

And the special thanks coming here …..

U may take it in any way whether An Award or A Thank u Card…..But this is especially made for u all.

INSPIRATION AWARD

I would like to thank vidya of Delectable Vegetarian Recipes and Vidhya of Appetizing Recipes.

Vidyabalaje- such a nice and friendly gal. She is the person who introduced me to the blog world. Giving her support, by her lovely comments on my post. A Big O... And thanks to her.

Now come my friend vidhya , she only has given me the opportunity to view her sil’s blog by giving the link. Moreover, we are good friends for the past 6 yr. Not only us... our kids also become best friends. Thank u my friend….

Thanks a lot to both vidhyas and this award goes to them.

BEST FRIEND AWARDS

Years will pass and moments too. But we‘ll still be beside each other…

Jus’ like always…. Our friendship is timeless.....

Who finds a faithful friend, finds a treasure
A friend like u as precious gem… Hard to find, difficult to part with…

And treasured forever… I m so lucky… I found u!

JeyashriSuresh my friend now in Singapore.... She recurrently thrills me by her lovely comments and even by cooking tips in every post even in her busy schedule of handling two kids. My very spl thanks to her and I honored her by giving this award…..

And this award also goes to my dear friend vidhya
GREAT SUPPORTER AWARD

This award goes to Lubna of Yummy Food and Srivalli for their patience on clearing all my doubts and guiding me for sending the entries to their events. Thanks a lot dears for giving the opportunity of learning more in tech side of blog and make me to participate in the Events.

REFRESHING AWARD

Srividhya selvam - My youngest sister in law and my husband’s cousin sister, who is my regular visitor and critic of my blog from the beginning… Till today she is refreshing me by her nice comments and encouraging words. This Award goes to her… thanks srividhya.

And Sriram my brother in law from Canada… he is such a nice gentleman and great food lover. When I was newly married, I asked him all my doubts whether it was simple or difficult abt cooking. He inspired me a lot by his small and simple tips on those early days when I started my cooking in my own kitchen… I m honoring him by giving this award….. Thank u Sriram.

GOOD CHEERS AWARD

The first visitor of my Blog other than my close friends and relatives… is DEESHA of Vegetable Platter . She left her lovely comment and suggestion on my BisiBela Bath. The moment I saw her comment I was so excited and she made my day cheer. Thanks dear. DEESHA kindly pick up the award dear.... BEST ENCOURAGING AWARD

My First award was given by my dear Mahimaa of …Indian Vegetarian Kitchen. To be frank I was longing for the awards on c ing everyone’s in their blog. No words to express my pleasure when I got the first Butterfly Award from her…. Thanks dear for thinking of me …. In turn I would like to honor her by this Award..
