WBB # 15 - Announcement & Gokulashtami

Weekend Breakfast Blogging is back to home ground this month. Guest hosts are lined up for WBB # 16 and 17. If you would like to take up hosting for December 07 and onwards for 08, please put in a line to me at saffrontrail@gmail.com.

If you have a fridge as full as that, then it's time to raid it for WBB # 15... because we're talking leftovers this month.

Breakfast is no hassle if you have leftovers from dinner. Some staples like bread, eggs, spreads, left over curry etc. on hand and you can whip up delicious stuff in the morning in no time at all. The inspiration for this month's theme came from the delicious 'Chole parathas' I made yesterday from Sunday's leftover Kabuli Chole. You'll have to wait it out a bit to hear the details of that one, my dear readers.

I have seen fantastic ideas from the blogosphere where stuff lying around in the fridge have been used creatively the following day to make a lip-smacking meal. One such recipe and presentation that stuck to my head is the Curried Noodle Patties from 101 Cookbooks. So raid your fridge for leftovers and do something creative with it for breakfast. You can also share with us your favourite tips for leftovers.



The rules of the game:
Prepare a breakfast from leftovers.
Blog about it including a link to this post in your write-up.
Send me a mail at saffrontrail@gmail.com - with 'BREAKFAST' mentioned in the title-
Please include the name of your entry, the permalink of your entry in the mail.
If you have a picture to be included, please resize it to 640X480 pixels and attach it with the mail.
Last date for submitting entries is 30th September - Midnight, Indian Standard Time [GMT + 5:30]
Round up will be posted sometime in the 1st week of October.

Look forward to seeing you all then!

Hope all my Indian friends are munching on Gokulashtami bakshanam (goodies). My mom and aunts have gone the whole nine yards as usual and made varieties of seedai, murukku, thattai, athirasam, vella aval and some more sweets. I'll be making the simple vella aval (beaten rice with jaggery and coconut) and Panakam for naivedyam this evening. The rest of the goodies are mine to take when I visit my parents' house next. I have a picture taken last year, same time, with my mom and aunt slaving in the kitchen to prepare an array of goodies. You'll find it here.

lovely theme nandita and happy janmashtami to u n ur family

Nandita said...


Anita- that would be easy, just have to ask my mom to rattle out all the proportions and type out on the blog. Will work on that project soon. Except for my trying out murukku once in the US that turned out beautiful looking but uncooked from inside...i havent ventured into making out traditional bakshanam...may be towards divali will get into this.
Can I expect your expert opinions and experiences with using leftovers then??

Rachna / Srivalli - isn't it lovely? I have saved it as my desktop background for the day- there's so much love and longing in that picture:) Please participate in WBB, would be really nice.

Nags- Thanks dear, have you started thinking for next month;)

Raaga- You are welcome with all your ideas and I know fully well how creative you are, so looking forward to hearing from you. Are you game for hosting as well, in the future?

I have never been able to eat dinner leftovers for breakfast. I never really feel much like eating breakfast to begin with so it has to be light and easy if I am going to eat anything. Love your blog by the way. I'll be back.
