What Has Gourmet Mum Done? 11th March 2013

I have some very exciting news to share. I am one of the five finalists in the MAD Blog Award 2013 in the Best Food Blog category. It's a real honour and I feel so happy, and a bit shocked. I'm so grateful to everyone who nominated me, so a huge thank you if you took the time to do that. 

I also want to say a big congratulations to the four other finalists with me, A Mummy TooCakes Photos LifeFrugal Queen and The Curry Guy. They are all fantastic blogs, have a look at them.

Please can you vote for your favourite food blog? If you vote for Gourmet Mum I will be very happy indeed.

I made a couple of recipes fromThe Curry Guy last week. We had friends over and I was looking for a simple Indian starter which I could make in advance. I made his quick, simple and authentic Coriander and Mint Raita and Tomato, Onion and Mint Salad. Served with poppadoms and mango chutney they made a fantastic, tasty and fuss-free starter. I think the starter went down better than the main course of Chicken Tikka Masala. It was just like dining in a British Indian restaurant.

If you shut your eyes you might think you're at an Indian restaurant eating this.

I was really chuffed to receive this beautiful card from my eldest on Mother's Day which he made at school. A cup of tea card complete with a tea bag! No hot water, for healthy and safety reasons I assume. Just what this sleep deprived mummy needs. Thank you Joshua!

Lovely card. Just my cup of tea.

I hope all you mamas got thoroughly spoilt this Mother's Day!

Much love, Filipa x
