If anyone ever thought themes blogging was easy try blogging with alphabets and themes!!
Everytime I think of a dish it’s like ha this is with the alphabet say “D” then it has to fit within the limits that have been set for the themes.
I do believe I have never pored over, yes pored over my recipes books and clippings as much I have in the last few months it’s like I am answering an exam!!
Here are my exam papers till now…
And now D
Some of the alphabets it’s easy but some it’s… like you have reached a brick wall!!
One such wall was for the alphabet “D”!
I kept on changing my mind again and again, nothing new here, but then I annoyed myself and felt like a dunce! Finally I decided to make “Drunkard’s Noodles.” No I have not d(r)unked them in alcohol!!
Drunkard’s noodles needs rice noodles but since I could not get them I used ordinary noodles, then again I have used veggies because I wanted a 1 pot meal. The girls managed to twist my hand and get me to make Hot and Sour veggies to go with it! But that’s beside the point! I have marked the veggies I have used as optional you may omit them.
