Apologies and Acknowledgements

Despite my promises after my previous break from blogging, I have been away from blogging for over a month now. I think I stretched my vacation-like mode a little too far, with the result that, though I skimmed through the blog list and my reader, I rarely visited any blogs or posted on mine.

Reasons are aplenty. But primarily, after getting back from Singapore, I was caught with applying for admissions to schools for A and attending interviews (yes! they interview the parents and the 3 yr old child too :-( ) for a couple of schools, trying to get a real work at home option to work out (it didn't :-( ), getting some kind of support system in place for A in order that I get more time on my hands for my own stuff (work/hobbies, that too didn't work out :-( ), coming to terms with the stark reality of the attacks in Mumbai and the resulting fear, and so on...

Without wanting to risk sounding like our current politicians, let me not apologise profusely this time. Instead, let me acknowledge the long-time-pending-to-be-collected awards passed on to me by some dear blogger friends. First, Thank You so much dear friends:-).



Lakshmi Venkatesh of Kitchen Chronicles passed me the Butterfly Award.

Indranee of Mistress of Spices also passed the Butterfly Award to me.

The rules of the award are:
Put the logo on your blog. Add a link to the person who awarded you. Nominate 10 other blogs. Add links to those blogs on yours, and leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

I would love to pass this award to

Adam, Anudivya, Cham, Divya,
Mahimaa, Priti, Purva, Sireesha, Sowmya, and Vaishali.

Arundhuti of Gourmet Affair passed the Good Job and Inspiration Awards



She also passed A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award



This award was also passed on by Andhra Flavours of For Spicy Lovers

I would like to pass the three awards to: Sia, Sra, Srivalli, Ramya, and Usha.


P.S. I have so many pictures (yes, I did click pictures!) waiting for a post by now that I need not worry about having to cook just for blogging until New Year at least, with the exception of any special blog events this month. Hope you will visit this space soon for the recipes:-)
