The morning of 8th Feb 2011 was very boring. I was gloomy and sad without any cause and was totally bored in office. Probably I was having my Monday morning blues....i know its not a Monday but since I didn't go to office on Monday so yesterday I was having my  Monday morning blues.......  :D . I think its a very common feeling for all :) .

By evening my day started changing from a gloomy boring one to a one that brought smiles to face and joys to heart. I had participated in "SLURRPY STAR OF THE WEEK" recipe contest and to my utter surprise I had won the 3rd prize. For the first time I had received a prize for cooking and I was so happy. Thanks to the editor of SLURRPY for hosting such a wonderful event....its a real encouragement for us amateur cooks :) 

And when I opened my blog and I was thrilled to see the comment for "The Foodie" she had passed me 3 award and it felt so wonderful to be appreciated.All these has encouraged me a lot. Thanks a lot "The Foodie" I am in Cloud 9 even now :)
