Halloumi on masala grilled veggies

It has been a while i have blogged...and a thought came to me ..the dreaded thought that perhaps i have gotten bored of blogging. It should honestly not come as a surprise to me or anyone who knows me..coz i have a very short attention span. It actually spreads to everything around me...i have gotten bored of jobs...hobbies...even people! yep...there has been a time i have been smitten by a few...only to yawn at their name later (that does not mean i do not have my share of good friends....but a very few to be honest). But...i am not bored of blogging...the break as i analyze is on account of me not cooking regularly or cooking boring or wierd foods...something that will not go well in the blogging world.

I have been contemplating to buy a grill...even researched on a few...only to put off the purchase...but when my good buddy Siggy announced Monthly Mingle- Grill it ..i decided to initially invest in a stove top grill pan before i spend more moolah on an outdoor one. Well..the purchase for a stove top grill gave me more trouble than i thought!...why you ask...well all the stores carry 'cast iron' grill pans..which is a huuuge no-no on my list..coz i refuse to baby sit cookware....or the non-stick one's cost me an arm and a leg..till i finally went to bed bath and beyond where i got a non-stick one for $50.00..which is cool to here i am entry for your event.I is a day late...but ;)
