Super Scribblers award and a kick in the butt!

I apologise for the long silence. Thank you to all of you who have been goading me to get on with my blogging.

I have been working on several new things at the same time, I will share those here in a bit, but genrally, juggling all of those had me busy and I stopped blogging because I just felt I did not have anything good enough in place to write about. Either the pictures were not good enough or the idea was not strong enough. Essentially I let myself procastinate using the slightest excuse. Bad idea. Losing track of my blogging also made me lose focus on the rest of my work.

Kim's very kind comments and the Superior Scribbler Award, finally gave me the kick in the butt I needed so here I am back to the scribbling :). I want to thank Kim for the award, and also thank my fortunes for friends like her and others that enrich my life.

Kim of the many blogs and I met what seems an eon ago, when I was at the start of my career as a food writer. Almost before I got a chance to get to know her better, she zoomed off and has been travelling the world in a fabulous life of discovery ever since. Over the years, we have kept tabs on each other through our blogs, sporadic, quick emails and occaissional packages of stray ingredients sent to each other via a strange network of friendly 'couriers'.

Two days ago Kim awarded me with my first online award for this blog, The Superior Scribbler Award!!!.

For details of this award and its beginnings, visit the original post and blog that started it all: The Scholastic Scribe

As with all Bloggy Awards, there are rules that go with the award:
Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to five most deserving bloggy friends.
Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog and link to the original post at The Scholastic Scribe which explains The Award.
Each blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit the original post at The Scholastic Scribe and add his/her name to the Mr Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who wins This Prestigious Honor!
Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules to his/her blog.

Thanks Kim, for considering this blog worthy of the The Superior Scribbler Award. You'd think after six years of writing and hundreds of bylines to my name I would have grown up somewhat but appreciation of my writing still puts zing in my work!

And here in no particular order are five bloggers that I follow regularly...
Archana of Spicyana whose beautiful food has kept me coming back again and again over the years.
Kalyan of the blog Finely Chopped - his life is an open recipe book which is often a treat to read!
Anita of A Mad Tea Party - whose recipe for Lime marmalade has brought a citrus jam revolution to my kitchen!
Meena of Hooked on heat - looking forward to that book, Meena!
Jyotsna of The Cooks Cottage - who makes the simplest things delicious!

Hey Rushina, thanks so much for passing this on to me. This is my first blog award and it is really special to get it from someone who is so passionate about food and has folowed her passion.

I saw the thali post on Facebook and it was so good to see a post from you again. It is difficult to keep track of all your bylines but one can always be two steps behind you at your blog :)

Keep feasting
