This one's for Viru... 300 not out

I was planning for my 300th post ever since I finished number 299.

I felt it had to be bombastic enough. I wondered whether I should write about a recipe, do a review or just share some food memories.

I saw the follower list go up from 29 to 32 during this time. Thanks a lot. I can't say how much this means. I saw comments pile up on Microwave Brownie and Its Raining Food... which I will answer. Getting comments are the biggest highs of my blogging.

I gathered material - outings to Gaylords and Leopold, the new Sky Garden at Candies, my cooking biography... but just couldn't decide on what would be good for a number 300 post.

So I thought that the best thing would be thank each of you who have followed the blog, commented, wrote in, told me how you felt about it AND specially those who grumbled when I didn't post for a while.

Here's to number 301

PS For those who don't follow cricket, 300 runs is a big landmark in test cricket. Virender Sehwag is the only Indian to have scored this in more than a hundred years. He has done it twice!

Congratulations for completing triple century!!
And when u reach Lara's milestone, tt wud be a perfect time to review Carribean food.
I sometime back read an interview of Viru on the net...He rates Ganguly as the best captain after Steve Waugh...He is always hungry (for runs)..likes to eat and has opened a restaurant called Sehwag Favourites in northern India.

Hey thanks so much Pavan... what lovely wishes. Would love to go to Port of Spain, ever since i read Sunny Days.

Why do you think I dedicated this to Viru :) Folks like him Bhajji and Yuvi stuck with Ganguly through thick and thin

I liked your food blog and the post on Gujarati Thali made be yearn for one! Alas, it will be just a pic on your post and not in my tummy! :(

Hey Shilpa, thanks so much for dropping in. A comment from a new reader is the perfect 300th post gift :) I hope some hot, steaming undhiya, rotli, aamraas and puri heads your way soon
@Legal Alien: thanks so much...and hope your new trip in Blogger is fun. I used to take the Telegraph and The Statesman from the PR desk at my office when I had first moved in to connect with home.

Sorry, that was me typing "Congratulations" while eating a brownie inspired by your 299th post.
