Memes

Here are three Memes and three awards - Back to Back - and I'm gonna finally get this off the Draft Mode and into Publish. Hurrah!

MeMe #1
I was tagged by Lavi for this Random Facts meme. I actually enjoyed it.

1. I eat 90% of my food with chopsticks. And out of a bowl. Except for dosas and rotis, everything else is eaten with chopsticks - personally I think the food just tastes better! I have a collection of about 200 pairs of chopsticks (you'd be surprised at how beautiful some of them are).
2. I turned vegetarian to win a bet, and stayed vegetarian for now...18 years.

3. My kitchen and dining table has to be clean at all times. My friends hate that while they are eating, I'll sometimes subconsciously start wiping off the table.

4. I used to dislike anything sour - strawberries, pears, lemon... - I have only started to (marginally) enjoy the taste about a year or two ago.

5. I HATE eggplant. There's something about eating a purple, squishy mush with seeds that is gross. Sometimes, and very rarely, I will eat it if it is cooked to death and there is no hint of purple or mush.

If anyone out there is interested, please pick up the tag for this meme!

Meme #3

Jamie tagged me for a Best 10 pictures Meme. If its okay, I'm going to just post the one that I liked the best (and it has nothing to do with food!)


I want to thank Notyet for passing on the "You Make My Day" award. You definitely make my day too with your lovely comments. Thank you!

I also want to thank Naina for passing on the Yummy Blog Award. I am so honored. Thank you!
