A to Z 2017 #ThemeReveal

Hello Reader!

I am so excited about the A to Z Challenge this year and I hope you are too!

This is my 2nd time at the challenge, I was part of it in 2015 and my theme was Tarot – as I am a Tarot Card Reader.

Planning for the A to Z is always a lot of fun, thinking of topics, discussing them with friends, almost finalizing a topic before something more ‘you’ comes your way is so exciting! I have been brainstorming topics for the past 6 months. I have chewed the brains off Chandni, Amrita, Deepa and Tina and more non blogging friends, including my Husband!

Chandni is always full of great ideas for posts and challenges. She also aced her last A to Z challenge and got an Ebook out of it as well, and had some refreshing ideas for me but then Romila shared some ideas and 26 Favourite Foods was among one of the many suggestions and the mention of Food got my creative juices flowing!

Thank you, Chandni. I hope to use your ideas & suggestions for future A to Z Challenges.

Romila is the most prolific blogger I know and an A to Z ace too also with an ebook to her credit. Thank you, Roms.

Now, I always need to add my special touch to anything that I do, so what could I add to the 26 Favorite Foods I wondered. After some thought I added the ‘Little about Me’ to it. Will a little about me be related to the food I’ll mention, or something else? You’ll need to read my posts to find out.

All I’ll say is that I am a Punjabi, born and brought up in Bombay, married to a Telugu and currently living in Bangalore. This palate has tasted a lot of flavors and eaten food with unpronounceable names (wait to read my post for the letter P to find out what I mean) and relished its food journey.

Join me as my posts make inroads through my memory and moments of Food, in alphabetical order no less, all through April!

Wishing everyone attempting the A to Z the very best and may the Muse be kind to all Writers.

Spread the love

  34. Nice theme Mayuri. We all eat food and associate a lot of memories with them as well. They can be a lot of experience to share ranging from the good, bad and the ugly to love, hate and adventurous too. Would love to read your posts as u unravel the interesting facts associated with you and the dish of the day. It is going to be fun for sure

  35. Food is always an appetizing topic, Mayuri, and a little about you will definitely make a great finishing touch! Looking forward to your posts!
