Cherry Season Is Here At Galt

BEEN WAITING FOR THE CHERRIES SEASON.... And finally it arrives!   Ever since we came two months ago, we have been waiting patiently for a friend to call us saying "It's time!!"  Yes, cherries season is on and they are selling at $3 per pound in the markets.  So far we have bought two times and they were finished in no time.  Not a single one of us dislike eating them... LOL...

So when this friend called up to say that the cherries are ready to be plucked, we did not hesitate a day longer.  This morning after our breakfast, we drove a half hour drive to this couple's house cum orchard to start our "cherry picking" and of course, eating them as we did our job!  Just cannot resist...so addictive.  I think I ate one whole pound of cherries today... one by one, I popped into my mouth until I was really-really full.  Greedy Me!
And here we are..... all excited....
Before I start... let me do some "warm-up!"  LOL...
Ok, let's open ceremony here..... 
Ready... get set....GO!
Beautiful red cherries....
And soon.... our Harvest done!
When can I feel these again???
Time to relax and play with my new furry friend...
Having a nice breezy rest after a hard day's work...
LOL...
And my usual poses as we walked around the orchard...
We filled up two big bags from just one and a half trees...
Yes, we just could not finish plucking even from two trees..
Too many and there are a dozen of them there!
Our Treasure... it is nearly 10kgs!

Thanks to our friends' kindness and generosity...
 oh yeah, plus the wonderful tea snacks too!

  1. Some health benefits, I hear. Very expensive here - thankfully, I'm not a fan.

  3. I love to eat cherries! You are so blessed with friends who are so kind and generous. Pluck and eat? No need to wash right? because directly off the tree is ok is it? I have seen documentaries where they pluck apples directly off the trees and eat them immediately without washing.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
