Lets get back to blogging

I have been away for what seems like a lifetime. The last two weeks have been a lesson in multitasking work and emotions. Hectic and relaxed at the same time. Happy and not so happy. Meeting and parting. Savoring some memories and mourning others.

Before I get into details, a big thank you to everyone who sent in there congratulatory messages for the Telegraph and HT write ups, another big one for all your wishes for the Masterchef Auditions and last but not the least for all those emails asking me if I was planning to get back to blogging :) Your emails and messages always make my days brighter.

So...my little sister conned me into going for the Masterchef auditions and I decided to give it my best to amuse her, my family and friends. Before I knew it, it all got way too serious and there I was at Mumbai as a part of the top 100 for another round of culling. Top 50 this time. Yes, I made it to top 50. Yay Yay. And got back home.

It was an amazing experience. We talked about food, saw food, cooked food, read food. 

And then I withdrew my name from the contest. Yes, you heard it right. 

The time I was away was very hard for Sara and I was required to be there for 4 months this time. So like Sara puts it, Mumma birdie came back to Sara birdie.

So I am back. With tons of happy memories and lots of new friends. Cooking has always been one of the reasons I wake up smiling and excited each day. And it will stay like that for life. Ofcourse I am thinking how much fun it would have been to be there for the entire show but we've got to choose some and leave some :)

Now I am off to bake some cookies for the little one and see her smile. She tells me , Mama you are my Masterchef...aww!




And on that note, lets get back to blogging.


Btw, how many of you are watching the Masterchef Australia series? Sara and I are loving it.

Wow....you've got a real long life, lady! Just this morning, I was thinking that Prachi hasn't blogged for a while now...wonder what she is upto....and here, I see your post. Maybe, it was telepathy:)
Well, It's great to know that you made it to the top 50. But life is all about choices you make, and you've made the right one!
Welcome back!
*Hugs*

Welcome back Prachi!!!! I would have loved to see you on Masterchef but I support you on your decision. I am sure it was a teenie weenie bit tough if not too much. Am sure Sara's words made you very happy :)
Well, I have been watching MC from day 1 (I love these cooking shows) and am totally hooked. Looking forward to watch the whole series even though I know the winner (was following FB updates on MC Australia) I know! But don't worry I won't give away any spoilers here.
Looking forward to hear more from you on the Blogging world!
