About Food Blog Awards

First awards and two at the same time! Totally unexpected, and what joy! Chitra Amma was very thrilled too. Usha and Srimathi - Thank so much from both of us.

I have been seeing pictures of these awards on so many sites, and was wondering what they are all about. Now I know. These remind me of chain mails that we used to send during our school days ...remember those blue inland letters? Friends used to buy them in stacks, just for the chain mails. I was never a great fan of chain letters, and was always the spoil-sport who took great pleasure in breaking those chains. This time however, is different. Receiving these awards, has pushed me to look up as many blogs as I could between work and work! I did enjoy visiting so many varied sites that I had bookmarked earlier, and found some nice new ones too. I wish I could send these awards to many more sites, but have carefully followed the rules, and numbers specified! I am not going to list the rules here.You will have to track back sites on the chain to find out. That's fun, as you again get to see many more ! I would not mind if you did not have time, inclination or energy to pass these awards on... but I do guarantee that its good fun!

Thanks to Usha of Veg Inspirations for sending the Blogging Friends Forever award.
I am happy to send them to:
A & N of Delectably yours . Check her James Bond style Pitle.
