Weekend Breakast Blogging- A Fortnightly event on Saffrontrail

Weekend breakfast blogging on Saffrontrail
From L->R:


My first attempt at event hosting~~

I'm sure most of us prefer to have a no-fuss breakfast on most weekdays. Hopefully all of us are atleast eating some breakfast- as it's the most important meal of the day-blah blah blah! I guess, everybody already know this and hence there's no need for me to be preaching about the benefits of this good dietary habit.

Weekday breakfasts are generally cereal and milk, steel cut oats with milk and a banana, sliced papaya and a few nuts and so on... Weekends are the only days when one has the leisure to prepare elaborate / traditional breakfasts and the time to enjoy it with one's favourite tea / coffee and the morning tabloids.

I have been trying to write regularly about my weekend breakfasts- except that for the last 3-4 weekends, I haven't kept up the routine due to a variety of reasons. Meeta of What's for lunch honey and Tony, our very own bachelor chef of curry mela fame, have encouraged me to start this as a fortnightly event-where all our fellow bloggers can tell us what they have been cooking over their weekend mornings.

The first time over, ie. now- I am keeping an open event-which means, no themes. Since this is my first trial at hosting- I shall take a go at it in its simplest form and then see how I can keep improvising.

All food bloggers are invited to participate in the Weekend Breakfast Blogging. I shall be posting round-ups on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month-so you can send me a link and photograph of your breakfast blog entry anytime inbetween on the mail id: saffrontrail AT gmail DOT com and I shall include it in the next update. Please link your post to this blog with the line "Weekend breakfast blogging".

So that's simple, not too many conditions.

  • Your entry should be servable at breakfast.
  • Recipes that a reflection of your culture (not compulsary) will be most appreciated.
  • A brief write up about the origin / a tale associated with the recipe / when you first tasted it will make an interesting prelude.
  • Just in case I am unable to include it in one round-up, it shall most definitely be included in the next one.

So friends, I shall be expecting your first set of entries by 10th July or so so that I can post the first WBB round up by the 15th of July.

Hope to see you all with your family's favourite breakfast item on the table. Cheers!

Sounds very fun. I've posted quite a bit about what I eat for breakfast (mostly eggs) but I'll try to come up with something new!

Vaishali said...

That's a great idea, Nandita. Also, thanks to Meeta and Tony for having encouraged you. I, too, try and cook something Indian/elaborate for weekend breakfast. Good that there is no theme as such. Less pressure that way. Will definitely try and come up with something. Wish you lots of fun hosting the event.

Meeta said...
