Thank You Nicole.It feels good to be appreciated!
Now onward to writing 7 new things about myself:
1.I love making Mithai (Indian Sweets)-The richer the better.
2.I love making pickles.I’d love to go commercial with them.
3.I love making jams,jellies,marmalade,preserves,sauces,chutneys etc.
4.I love appalams and vadagams – small, sun-dried,deep fried side dishes.I think they raise simple meals to divine heights.
5.I collect recipes of food that survive well without refrigeration.I hate the thought of us losing them because of disuse.If any of you have some such recipes please share them with me.
6.I collect recipes using plants,vegetables,fruits,berries,forest produce,game birds and animals etc,that are no longer commonly available in markets today.Again I would love it if you can share such recipes with me.
7.I have a fondness for old style kitchen equipment.The best collection I have see recently is in the Casa Araujo Alvares in Goa.Any of you guys have such stuff lying around at home?Then,do post the pictures in the comments section.
Now for the new Winners of the Reader Appreciation Award:
1.Andy Cheung:Andy was the very first reader of my blog whom I knew by name.Andy I know you like articles about the greatest stock investors of our time,especially those of the value investing persuasion and self-help or motivation articles.I have not posted recently about value investors,but I hope you found some of the motivational pieces helpful.I will try to do a few pieces on value investors soon.I am sorry I am no longer able to correspond by e-mail.Between the pressures of work and the deluge in my bail-boxes it has become an impossibility.I hope your book is coming along fine.
2.Avishek :I know reading is not really your thing.You would rather be doing.But thanks for your comments and likes.Sometimes a body just needs friends to give them that push to get ahead.Getting on Twitter did bring me many followers and I will get onto Facebook , Google+,Tumblr,Pinterest etc.ASAP.I know you would rather have me be doing rather than writing this…..Thanks.
