MBP September : Say 'Cheese' and am an year old!

Welcome ppl. I have a reason to be the 'happiest blog' today! I came into this amazing food blogging world exactly an year back and with a modest number 170 posts and 50,000 profile visits....I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of my evolution...:) and wish to have many more in future!

Yours truly,
Siri's Corner (a.k.a Siri)

What better way would be to celebrate this special occasion of mine with a special event announcement.....a birthday bash cum MBP event and the theme is....................

"How can you be expected to govern a country that has 246 kinds of cheese?"

- Charles De Gaulle, former President of France.

My love for 'CHEESE' is so intense, that I would love to stay in such a country *wink*. No wonder I chose this as the next theme of MBP September.


......Lets 'Say Cheese!' all of next month!..:)

No matter how far archaeological findings go, there is evidence that cheese came into being in prehistoric times and ..this delicious food must have resulted from the simple observation that milk left in a container ends up by coagulating, even more if it is hot...:)

...There are hundreds of different types of cheese that can be differentiated both by the type of milk - raw, skimmed or pasteurised, and by the animal - cow, goat, sheep, buffalo, horse or camel, some specific to their geographical location and culture!
Here is the complete 'cheese' list!

    HappY blog Anniversary, Siri. An apt occasion to say "Cheese".:)

  27. Hi

    great site!! I just started blogging ( 3 weeks old), & I came across the say cheese event. First of all happy birthday and in just a year it is an awesome place built.

    I had a question regarding the event. Does the recipe HAVE to be borrowed from some blog or can I use my original recipe?

  28. @ Soma: the main motive of 'Monthly Blog Patrol' is to cook something for fellow bloggers ..:) Yes, the recipe has to be from other's blog (with your own variations, ofcourse!).

    Hope this helps..


  29. I know if am late but belated happy birthday to you.
