If its not swine flu, its chickguniya.(is that how its spelt?) .Apparently this mosquito-inflicted nightmare is speading all over North Kerala . So looks like our visit to Kerala might not happen after all. We were planning to go end-September. But God and the mosquitoes have plotted against us…..
Meanwhile I have been crazy-busy with the coffee-evening in our Goa Navy Institute. It’s this evening of coffee and blah blah organized by and for us navy wives. Its not the kitty-partyish thing..rather its like those sports or art fests that we used to have in college. There’s games, entertainment, FOOD and loads of chatter.
Goa is a small base so most of us know each other and this once-a-month thing we organize helps us catch-up in the midst of our busy daily lives. I’ve grown to really enjoy these’coffee evenings’. My dept is organizing this month’s event so been real busy getting together some stuff…
I made this Apple Fritters a while back but just got around to posting them today. These taste really good. Make sure you keep some extra apples at hand you’ll probably have to cook an additional batch.
