It is a festival Season in India and celebrated by the Indian Community world wide. We celebrated Lakshmi Pooja ,Rakhi ,Janmastami and now Ganesh Pooja for the next 9 days. So many home made goodies and fruits to gorge on. We get an opportunity to dress up with traditional wear. I just love this time of the year. This year working from home has given me an opportunity to celebrate with more fervor without office work being affected. We celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi as whole family was home .I made Fruit And Nut custard as I had a lot of fruits.
