Three of my dear blogger friends have started two very interesting and new events this year. Everyone is already aware of Monthly Blog Patrolling and I am sure Coffee is busy going through her entries right now.
Maheshwari of Beyond The Usual started AFAM aka A Fruit A Month. An event started to encourage eating more fruits and making tasty healthy dishes using the fruit of the month. A healthy event and by the end of it we will be more aware of fruits than we would have ever imagined.
TRS of The Spice Who Loved Me had a brilliant idea to involve kids in the kitchen and come up with kid friendly recipes where kids play a role other than eating. Kids curious creatues that they are, are more than ready to help in the kitchen, this burst of interest wanes as they grow and so let's make the best of the situation in hand. Her event Little Friends In The Kitchen will make the kids interested in food blogging too in no time I am sure
To have something for both of these events We made a simple, kid friendly breakfast Saturday morning which had Fruit of January Banana and where my Daughter was more than eager to pitch in. Simple delicious Banana Pancake
I am not going to put up the recipe here. I followed mostly Jaya's Banana Pancake Recipe. We used Bisquik Pancake Mix, omitted the eggs, added One mashed Banana, pinch of nutmeg, and the Pancake Batter was mixed by none other than my lil' daughter S.
Considering she is only three she is pretty helpful in the kitchen and otherwise. Weeekends she helps her Dad unload the dishwasher and is too happy to pound masala for me in the Mortar. Compared to all that, whisking the batter seemed to be a piece of cake for her :) And when all of us gave her credits for the Pancake you should have seen the glow of pride on her face. She says "Thanks Mashis for letting me be in the blog"
I loved seeing all of you guys putting up your kitchen pics. So I decided to share what I see From My Kitchen Window, the blue sky and lots of light on a Sunny Day.
Predominantly a Bong, who loves being a Mom and loves to cook among other things for the li'l one and the big ones.She loves to write too and you will find her food spiced up with stories. Mainly a collection of Bengali Recipes with other kinds thrown in, in good measure. A Snapshot of Bengali Cuisine
