Writing blogs have become part of my daily routine, some are inspiring, some maybe boring, some about my daily antics and others just written on a spur of the moment. But the most rewarding thing about blogging is having a captive audience that takes the time to read them and more so even makes the effort to leave a comment at the end!! (Thanks it’s well appreciated!!) It was one of these comments made by a friend, which inspired this silly and senseless topic!!! 

O   Oh dear what can I write on the topic of oranges??

R   Requested by a friend …..I guess as a joke, but rising to the challenge, I have to think   of something to write on oranges!!

A– A day is like an orange, we squeeze moments and memories from each one, while worrying whether our glass is half-full or half-empty.

N-Not trying to bore but can see the dilemma here???

G-Give me some inspiration!! Oranges???..Juicy,round, sweet, pungent, full of vitamin C.

E-Energetic drinks you can make!!

SSorry this is proving more difficult then I thought!!

 -How about an “orange” joke???

Two oranges were running down the road, what did one say to the other??? 

Ok, while u are thinking of the answer, here are some kewl recipes using oranges!!!

I never knew blogs can be written ‘instantly’. well am a person who first short-lists a topic, then jot down points, then short-lists good points… n then finally start writting and posts it after a hell lot of ‘editing’ n ‘re-editing’ n ‘re-editing’. But I must say, I will try this instant recipe 😉
