Five years ago, when I was just couple of months into Blogging, starting a Food event was really so exciting and I remember spending so much time, coming up with a theme that might interest and benefit so many others. As I remember writing that I was planning on to take a theme on Lunch box or something quick, I had my readers asking for an event on Microwave cooking
. I took it on and you see it's been five years since.
I have cooked many dishes, sometimes complete menu from a microwave. It's been exciting, a learning experience on the whole. I know many quote cooking in microwave is harmful. If that was so, why are the microwaves still being sold. Anyway that's a topic for a different discussion. Coming to the event, it has seen so many seasons. Sometimes with so many entries, sometimes with just handful in the round up. Whatever I know this event has greatly helped some, for which I am happy.
Though the Melas have been more successful, I will always cherish this event. And this month five years ago, it was first announced. Most probably I may give this event a break after the two hostess who have agreed to guest host for me. Until then, you will see this happening. After that, maybe a break will do this event some time to pick up again.
So for now, let's have a party!
