A – Z International Flatbread | 26 Flatbread around the World

A - Z International Flatbread | 26 Flatbread around the World

It is a a huge pleasure and sense of accomplishment every time I complete a Month long Mega Blogging Marathon. This happens twice a year and I try not to miss any of these as this is when I really put my blogging on full gear and test my endurance.

This A – Z International flatbread was a stretch for me as well as my family as I had made only a handful of recipes before the month began and I almost made a flatbread each day. My younger one casually passed on a comment the other day that we don’t want to be eating flatbread for at least a month after this. This made me realize how much I had pushed it this month and hopefully I will be better planned the next time.

I have to admit that I have withdrawal symptoms and all my mind can think is flatbread. It will be soon be routine posting time and I am trying hard to put aside the flatbread thoughts and come out of it.

I thank each and every member of the Blogging Marathon for making this a very successful month. I especially thank Srivalli for being the best leader that she has always been and organizing this each and every month.
