6 May 2016 – French Bake Shop


Mon: avocado, one of my favourites, no matter if fruit or veg! Ellie has always liked it, then John and now Sophie got a taste and learning to like it too. First time ever such a small seed for me! Ellen from Tromsø reminded me that avocado is a fruit. Then the king of fruits for me here and the king of fruits for me back in SIN is the durian, both being creamy and tasty!


IMG_0793Tue: Rise Gourmet Goods & Bakeshop*****is called a Southern boulangerie, or French bake shop. Southern culinary familiarity melds with French flair using only the freshest, highest quality and mostly locally grown ingredients. Had the Beet Burger and it was out of this world. Those who know me also knows that I usually do not eat the bun from the burger, but this bread here was so fresh and good that I ate every crumb. The Orange Basil Soda hit the spot – refreshing and tasty. Appreciations to Debbie for this delicious lunch. Tkx to John for introducing Linn to this place.


Wed: beautiful cool morning after 2nights of rains and Happy Hump Day to all. Swept the driveway instead of using the blower for exercise and to hopefully slow down destruction to the environment! Ordered online 2meshed vests from Ebay and a backpack Arc Blast from Zpack – Weight: 21 oz/595g Vol: 45L, Load cap: 35lbs/16kg US $325!


Looks like the azaleas are on their ending days of blooming, but this bee like me seem to enjoy our tranquility with our own company for the moment!


Another day in paradise with perfect weather dry and cool – peaceful be alone to watch the sunset on the lake.

Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth…

cinco-de-mayo-in-new-jerseyThu: Cinco de Mayo=Fifth of May, commemorates Mexico’s victory over the French army at the Battle of Puebla (1861-1867).

Celebrating this occasion with food from south of the border, refreshing frozen Margaritas, yummy tacos, guacamole and salsa. Also another good reason is to expose the children to different cultures and taste of foods.

Above food pix downloaded from various sites – having similar food except not that kind of presentation, just how I would like it to look but the below food pix is the reality! And with 5kids the Margaritas will be Virgin Margaritas. Not a fan or Margaritas, so had Blue Flour****made this for me and my plate of taco salad minus the shells and cheese 🙂
