Delicious Delectables of 2011 - Journey by Each month

                                                    New Year’s Toast
Here’s to the new year...
May it bring more joy and success
And less grief and regret.
To our dreams...
May we never stop believing in them
And taking the actions that will make them a reality.
To our friends, loved ones, associates (or colleagues)...
May we take the time to let them know
How much it means to us
To have them in our lives.
Let us encourage more and criticize less,
Give more and need less.
And whenever we can,
Let us create harmony and peace.
To new beginnings...
Let us start fresh, right now,
To make this the very best year ever.
A very Happy New Year to all of us!
By Joanna Fuchs

Lubna of Yummy Food, Prathibha of the Chef And Her Kitchen, Priti of Indian Khana and me had planned together for our last post of the year. A toast to our friendship ! I'm so happy to have these wonderful people in my life.
Gradually we are nearing the end of the year 2011 and are about to welcome 2012 with hope, belief and confidence for a better year. 2011 was eventful in many ways which could be remembered, but personally for me this is the year when my child left all his inhibitions and progressed in the Montessori school with renewed enthusiasm and aptitude. When I see him asking questions at his age which was unthinkable when I was a child, then I feel that my son is progressing very well in this changed world.
As far as world events, this was the year when we lost many of our legends, like Shammi Kapoor, Dev Anand, Steve Jobs, Bhupen Hazarika, Jagjit Singh, Nawab Pataudi, Pt. Bhimsen Joshi amongst many others. Pray to the almighty that their souls rest in peace.
Now coming back to my Blog, 2011 was the year when I posted maximum number of recipes and tried to share a wide variety of dishes for all my online friends. Thanks to all of you and I sincerely hope that I would obtain all the encouragement and support from you my online friends, who have been with me for last three years. Hope that all of you have a happy and prosperous 2012 and your wishes for a better tomorrow comes true.
