Time flies for sure and today I won’t post a recipe, but my flowing thoughts about Fiesta Friday!

I clearly remember when Angie, The Novice Gardener announced the beginning of Fiesta Friday ! It made quite a roar amongst us who were already connected with Angie through WordPress. 


It was such a novel idea that many of us jumped on the board immediately. Angie kept the fiesta going one after the other, keeping it engaged, rewarding, encouraging and adventurous. I am sure that she herself probably didn’t know at the time, that Fiesta Friday will have its 100th party. A party that started as a block party, joined by many later and then became a huge banquet party!

A thought perceived and put in action can be so rewarding. Right Angie?

I participated in many fiestas if not all 100. Learnt so much throughout from different people in terms of plating, cooking techniques, baking endeavors, staging, prop use, camera focus, clicking and publishing with more finesse everytime!

Here is a list of uncountable number of recipes and thoughts that I took to fiesta

Last but not the least, What Fiesta Friday has done to many of us, I believe, is – Brought pelope from different parts of the world, together as a community. I met so many strangers on fiesta and we chatted, we partied, we exchanged day to day notes (sometimes), and became good friends and supporters to each other. So much so that I have so many of you on my Facebook now and that makes me so happy.

Wishing Fiesta Friday more success and good connections!

Love to all of you!
