It was Chocolate… Arrest it!

Wasn’t us!

It was our last morning in Khandala. The party last night went on till 4:00 am. The plan was to wake up at 10:00 am; get ready; go to Lonavla market, buy fudge from Coopers, have food and then leave for Bombay by 1 pm as one of us had a flight at 4:30pm.

Instead, we wake up at 7:30 am; get out of bed by 8:30am; after some general whiling away of time, we leave for Lonavla as planned at 10:00am. But it’s pouring and we have no umbrella or a jacket. The hotel guy calls as autowallah who agrees to take us to Lonavla, wait there while we shop and eat and then bring us back :). In yesterday’s torrential rain, he was a pleasant surprise to me. Didn’t ask us for a lot of money and we didn’t bargain either… waited patiently and made sure he dropped us as close to the entrance at all the places. We reach Coopers and are greeted by the aroma of freshly made hot fudge; we buy one for each of us and one for another friend. Have breakfast at McD and come back to room at around 12:00. It was then when we get the news that it’s been raining bad in Bombay as well and that the roads are crazy with traffic and water so we should leave as soon as possible. So we call our friend, asking him to hurry up but he is pretty much indifferent to this news.

While we wait, we open up the fudge to ‘just taste’ a little and we realise that the flavour we got for our friend tastes much better! We began tasting by just scraping off the fudge from the sides so that it doesn’t look like we had opened it; but then we slowly move in. The tasting lasts for I don’t know how many bites when finally my friends declares that the other one can go buy her own fudge and that she is taking both the packets at her home :D. We just tell the other one that we didn’t anything for her.

And then she makes this profound statement:

“It’s amazing what all chocolate makes you do”

It started from scraping the sides

It slowly made it’s way into the box

    Reblogged this on My weekend kitchen and commented:

    It’s not a recipe, so I was not sure if this post should come on this blog; But this was an experience with food which I didn’t want to forget and hence wrote on Lime ‘n’ Lemony. Reblogging it here becuase My Weekend Kitchen is actually all about food experience!
