HOLIDAYING...

I have not been blogging for a while because I have been caught up in doctoring an uncle of mine who needed some sorting out.It was a whole week of running around before he settled down.
I have also gone headlong into my fiction writing course.
I am done with the first week but now I need to gear myself for the second week.
In the mean time I continue to marvel at my parents.I thank the lord everyday for them.
Yesterday on the long drive back from Siliguri,I bought a kilogram of Avocado,all of rupees fifty but just the right consistancy for the tropical salad recipe I picked up from my mother's cook-book.
There is nothing much to it really.
Slice the avocado and the papaya into long strips.
Take the leafs of watercress and arrange it in a plate with the avocado and the papaya.
Take 10mls of fresh lemon juice and sprinkle it over the salad with a dash of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Voila you have a lovely tropical salad.
If we want to make a meal of it ,we can put in some boiled eggs.
It is heaven just spending time with my parents and my brother.
