I wish to tag these friends:


I have one more surprise. My dear friend Dhivya of Dhivya’s Cuisine has sent a wonderful award my way. I am really flattered Dhivya and Thank you for thinking about me. This award is originally started by Roopa of My Kitchen Treats.


"Yummy blog award is the award given to the blog with most yummy recipes/photos”


Now I have to quote my favorite yummy-licious dessert(s) that I have ever prepared/eaten. So here goes the list:


The list is never-ending. So I stop here. Now I have to prepare or buy one of them to celebrate this occasion.

Now it’s my turn to pass on this award. As Dhivya said, it’s really hard to pick only a few (only four blogs). But rules are rules. So I chose these blog friends to pass this award.

Rules for the ‘Yummy Blog’ award Reciver:·

  • The person who receives the award should display the "Yummy Blog !" logo on their blog and also the meaning of the award which is "Yummy blog award is the award given to the blog with most yummy recipes/photos".·
  • The receiver should also quote their favorite yummy-licious :) dessert(s) that they have ever prepared/eaten. Don’t restrict yourself to any dessert, chocolate bars also welcome.·
  • Also the receiver should pass on the award to four other bloggers whose blog they find "yummy" and let them know about the rules.

And Finally Some Funny Food Riddles I read on a cereal box:


How do you make soup rich?
Put 14 carrots in it!


What kind of beans have landed on the moon?
Human Beans!


What fruit always travels in groups of twos?
Pears!


Why did the cookie go to the hospital?
It felt crummy!


What does corn say when it’s picked?
Ouch! My Ears!


What do ghosts like for breakfast?
Scream of Wheat!


What do you call someone who eats everything in sight?
A Refriger-raider!


How does the gingerbread man make his bed?
With Cookie Sheets!


How can you knock over a full glass and not spill any water?
When the glass is filled with milk!


That’s all friends! Enjoy! Have a nice day!

Congrats on the award Uma. Actually I wanted to pass it to you, when Kamala passed it to me and then I checked your blog to see that you have already received it.

Nice to know some interesting information about you. How do you make chutney using brocoli stems? I don't see that in your Chutneys category. You should post it the next time you make it.
