AWARD AND COLORLESS BLUSH

Well receiving award is not a regular thing for me but when I receive one, I am overwehlmed!!! But when my friends start praising me I go blushing even if there is nothing much left on my face at this age to make the blush visible ( It was also not quite visible in young days because of my inherited colorless complexion. Scientists say black is colorless and white is combination of all colors...may be that's why SOMEONE some times blush green and blue when I am caught loitering in the park, in disguise of brisk walking !!!

I have received 2 awards from Cool Lassie of pangravykadaicurry, she doesnt need any introduction in my blog world but click here for ready reference. She cooked  my fake Mushroom fry and went over board praising me; that was the time I went into a colorless blush....What is most amazing is that she introduced a little variation to  my Fake Mushroom fry to make it a great dish. SOMEONE is going to try it soon and I may too in my fake kitchen ( really fake one). The adjective Fake, I have  recently learnt from one of Lassie's blog and tempted to use it every where. Even yesterday , while I was chairing a complex meeting with officials from engineering company, contractors and the client, the words slipped out " Looks  fake"..every body was bit puzzled..I quickly corrected myself,  " I often use irrelivant comments to see how attentive are the participants, I am happy that every one is!!!!" There was a big laughter and I was saved.
Here is the real treat of Mushroom fry from Lassie ( U all know it ). Rest of the great recipes , you discover , I am still discovering from her great blog.
Few of the great reads ( non food) at her blog are Cinque Terre travelogue,  how she managed her cute boy on her way to India and above all , the best one is her eye surgery ..

AWARD FROM COOL LASSIE ( for colorless blush)

And the recent award



THANK YOU SO MUCH , COOL LASSIE ('e' within bracket), FOR YOUR NICE WORDS AND ENCOURAGEMENTS.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I must also mention here, Akal's Sappadu , who sent me into colorless blushing when she used my Fake chicken 65 recipe ( excuse me, I am in a fake grip of the word Fake) and posted it. After that it is history..Previously I used have 3-4 visitors , now I have many , most of them arrive from Akal's blog while searching for Chicken 65

THANK YOU, SO MUCH,  AKAL

Ushnish-da,
Thanks for accepting the award. I didn't go overboard cause the mushroom fry with such few ingredients was awesome and the praise was well-deserved.

I also like the fact that you mention the finer details of cooking and that helps folks like me who are still on the learning curve. And, did I mention I have a healthy respect for men who love to cook and please their family?

The picture of snow is pleasing to the eye. Snow makes everything look wonderful, like in a wonderland.

Akal's Saappadu said...

Congratulations for the awards Ushnishda!!!

and thank you so much for that reference, but I 'm really wondering if that is fake or really fake, hahaha????

but I really didn't regret trying out that fake Chicken65 recipe :) as I've already mentioned that fake recipe made us all finish everything in no time...

and I see that you haven't been totally absent in your blog?? addicting huh?
and black is a lovely colour, don't say it is colourless, it's white which is not a colour at all, huh, will create a big debate I suppose....
we're beginning to have a bright sunshine and reaching some 12° C ... the south of france had some snow falls too, guess it's to mark the end of the season!!!
hope you're having a nice time in meetings, conferences & phone calls, hahaha, see you later!!!

Dear ushnish ji,
What a perfect timing..I tried ur chicken 65 yesterday,u recomended to me it long time before,but the timing was perfect yesterday and I decided to give it a go..And the result was fabulous..I cooked it yst for dinner ..only 2 people ate ..its all gone now.I knew that there will be nothing left behind after the dinner so I clicked it before I served.But the pic is not looking as delicious as it tasted as I took it the night.I will give u chance to blush again..will post it soon in my blog:)
