Mom's Recipes: Photo A Day - Handwriting

Day 30 of "June Photo A Day Challenge" : Handwriting


Last day for this round of photo-a-day challenge. Phewwww! Two months long of daily photography was getting on my nerves! I'm not so much into photography as I am into writing. Have exhausted most of my archival supply of pictures. So no more photography challenges for me till next year. Here's the picture for today though...



That's a page from my mom's recipe diary. She passed away before she could teach us (my sis and I) how to cook like her, but she did leave behind some of her selected recipes. :)

Yes, that's her handwriting. And no, I have not yet tried that recipe. In fact, I haven't tried any of the recipes in her diary till now. The love for cooking, that was completely lost in Patna, is slowly coming back now.... very VERY slowly. So hopefully, I'll try out a few of these now...

Anyway, I'm going back to normal blog writing from tomorrow. Yes, there will be another round of daily blogging in July, but, it will be a sort of 'free-style' round... of writing. (No more photography! :P) There's no pre-defined list of daily prompts in this challenge.

Personally, I find such direction-less daily-blogging challenges more difficult to complete, as having a fixed theme/set of topics helps me remain focused, and I don't run out of ideas to write about. Let's see though. I'm a bit tired, after doing 3 consecutive months of daily blogging. So maybe I'll quit somewhere along the way. Joining up nevertheless. Wish me luck!


This is my 30th (last) post for 2013 June Photo A Day Challenge.
