The tenth Blogging from A to Z April (2019) is just around the corner. This is my third consecutive year on this blog and sixth overall, participating in this challenge. It makes me feel so proud of myself that I feel like doing a little jig right away.
A couple of days ago, I shared The Ultimate Guide to A to Z Blogging Challenge on my Kohl Eyed Me blog. I had mentioned how to choose a theme and also some tips and tricks to nail the challenge. So, if you are new to the challenge, you should definitely give it
- In 2014, I wrote about Recipes from Kerala Cuisine (that was a food blog back then)
- 2015 saw me writing about 26 hours before my wedding - A to Z Shakespearean Idioms.
- In 2016, I wrote about My Life as an Army Wife. This is till date, my absolute favorite theme and had been loved by many. I was also a part of the co-host Pam Brown Margolis's team, helping the official A to Z Challenge crew. I
enrolledthis blog and shared A to Z Chicken Recipes.
- In 2017, I wrote about My Vacay in Thailand and A to Z Popular Indian Foods.
- Last year, I wrote All About Muffy, my then four-month-old Golden Retriever and on my food blog, I wrote about A to Z Army Party Recipes.
This year, however, I have got a lot on my plate. I am packing my bags right now as you read this post, for a two-month long vacation at my parents'. I would be neck-deep in helping Dad move homes, Mom with setting up our new home and fighting with my younger sister over little things. Well, that's us.
But is that holding me back from participating in the challenge? Definitely not! A to Z Challenge brings a lot of bloggers together and it is a great way of reading new bloggers and make friends with those who share the passion for writing. I can't let that go now, can I?
#AtoZChallenge Theme Reveal 2019
Without further ado, let me spill the beans about this year's theme.
My theme for A to Z Challenge 2019 is A-Z Kerala Recipes!
Yup. Once again! I hope I get to share a variety of food which is the pride of our beautiful state.
For all those who believe Kerala or South India is all about Idli and Sambar, here's presenting to you 26 amazing dishes from God's own country!
Regarded as the Spice Capital of the World, the story of Kerala's spices dates back to many thousands of years into the past, being a major contributor to the international spice trade. Traditionally known for spicy food, the spices give unique flavor and richness to all the dishes in the Kerala cuisine.
Scrumptious and mouth-watering, each meal in this cuisine is fit for the King. The aroma of Cardamon, cloves, ginger, cashew, tamarind, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper,
Stay tuned for April 1st and expect a multitude of vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods and I promise you, it will be a treat to all the true-blue gourmets.
That's all for now, folks!
