Are you ready? New Event Announcement - "COOK AND CLICK"

Tried and tasted by Nivedita 
Hi All,
Being a person who eats anything edible, I always look into cooking section in any magazine I open to read. Thats how I had collected the pages from the magazine FRIDAY which comes with GULF NEWS on every Friday. And my friend too had collected the pages from many years. She got it binding in a printing press with thick cover. We both used to try those recipes. Before she left for India, she gave me all the books as the books weighed almost  10 kgs!! I was there for longer time and I too tried many recipes. But!!!!

Before I shifted back to India, by mistake that whole box with my few other study books got misplaced somewhere !! I literally cried when I did not get that box. It was a treasure for me. After that I stopped collecting the recipes.
But when I came back to India, I saw my mother's book rack is  full of recipes which she had collected from old Woman's Era and few Kannada Magazines!

 Till today I have not tried any recipes from those pages as I am swimming in the ocean of recipes. (I can name it THE BLOGGERS OCEAN)

Last week, when I went to my other friend, she gave me few old cook books from which she has tried most of the dishes. The books are old, but have a great collection of recipes. One of you might be having those books in your personal library. 

Now when I was just going through those wonderful recipes, a thought came to me about this event. But I remembered an event from some blogger (I am extremely sorry, I am not getting her blog now) which was same like this. She used to give some recipes and one should prepare it and send it to her with the photo. It was 2 years before when I started my blogging. IF ANY ONE KNOWS ABOUT THIS EVENT OR IF YOU ARE THE ONE WHO HAD THIS EVENT, please let me know.
I want to start this event in a different manner:
Every week I will post 2 recipes , the ingredients and the source magazine (if possible). All you need is to choose one or both(if possible), prepare at home, click and send me only the photos.

IF ALL OF YOU SUPPORT ME WITH THIS EVENT, I AM SURE, IT WILL BE GREAT FUN AND TOGETHER WE CAN LEARN MANY OLD RECIPES.

I WILL WAIT FOR THIS WEEK FOR THAT BLOGGER IF SHE READS THIS AND COMES OUT. I JUST DO NOT WANT TO BE A PLAGIARIST. (I do not fully remember that event and its rules.)
If I come to know about that previous event, then lets see! you are the one to decide!

WAITING FOR YOUR REPLIES. 

Keep Smiling,
