Saffron Trail Digest - November 2016
Hello November, you have no idea how relieved I am to meet you.
While I do love the fun and frenzy of festivals, sometimes it's just a bit too much - 'festival fatigue' as I like to call it. October started off with Dussera, then we had our mini vacation to Hampi (this was the only relaxed time), back into preparations for Diwali and ended with Halloween. While I don't consider the last one a festival, the kid looks forward to it all year, so I have to muster up the necessary excitement to show some solidarity here :)
On the work front, it was great experience to work with the brand Kesari Saffron, creating a booklet of saffron recipes for them. Developing these recipes, photographing them and presenting it to the client made for a very fulfilling exercise. I also shared some of these recipes on the blog in the days leading to Diwali.
Psst....If you want to work with me, then you can find more details here.
I'm glad that it's not just me, but also my blog that is breathing in a more relaxed manner this month. No more of the festival frenzy, which means we are back to regular transmission.
My blog calendar is all planned for November. The ingredient spotlight is on Beets - which are not only versatile but very healthy for you too. You'll also find a couple of nutrition focused articles - things that I often find asking myself, for example: should I have dal or yogurt today, what's the nutritional comparison? I'll also be focusing on some of the nutritious parts of vegetables we end up discarding, which we SHOULDN'T!
Since I want to keep some surprises for you, I'm not outing all my November plans here, but stay tuned and I promise you won't be disappointed.
All good things come to an end. Curtains come down on Cucumbertown and it's been a sad news, hitting us bloggers badly. Most of us are back to the drawing board, with blog migration plans and design changes. Hopefully, November will see Saffron Trail migrated to Wordpress with a new blog theme. I'll be grateful for your understanding and support in case the blog suffers some niggles and downtime in the process.
Meanwhile, stay tuned for more food and recipes.
