It is all about my cooking for the past months and also to catch up what is going on in my garden. They were beautiful cooking since March up to June.
Celebration of our first arrival in Australia is in March. Every year I do special cooking for the family, but now the children are no longer with us, they live far away at their own home, so I cook only for the two of us. Fillet of Beef – Meat is one of the best product in Australia.
The Month of April.
It was Easter celebration and also this month is very significant for me, as it was the time my dear grandfather’s passing. We grandchildren loved him so much, to thanks his loved I cook for the family every year. For this year, meat, Egg and vegetables were the theme of the dish.
Thank you for your love Grand father-embah Kakung.
The Month of May.
This month is a very important month for the year, as we have seven birthdays in our family. Rayner had a beautiful birthday cake, Pear Crown Cake and it was so good and it was so appropriate for him. Pork with crackling is his favourite and it was cooked perfectly.
The month of June
This month was a busy month, we were holidaying in Europe. While I was visiting my daughter in the Netherlands, we had a big celebration for our grandson Milo, he was almost three years, but the feast was mostly dedicated for adults, however he loved the ‘bakmi’, one of the delicious dishes, he said that I was the cook and he loved it, it’s so delicious.
I am so pleased and proud if I could cook from my harvest of my garden. The vegetable patch is only small but the herbs grow well there, the olive tree gives me enough olives to preserve and so do the citruses. I preserve the lemons, make the preserve rinds in syrup etc. Cooking for family and friends is my offering, my greatest love that I could give, it is cooking for the gods.
Winter in The Garden.
This winter is very cold and we had a heavy frost, some plants have damaged by it. The olive tree were good and strong and had a lot of fruits, but the frost got it. Last week I was so surprised and shocked that there were no more olives on the tree. This was my first experience that the olives were simply vanished because of the frost. Anyway Rayner decided to chopped the olive tree to make easier to care for. Now the big tree is not here any longer, instead only the stump, I do hope it will come back to live in spring.
The picture of the olive tree was taken in 18 of May 2015, they olives were ready to harvest, unfortunately I did not have time, as we ought to go overseas the next day.
The look of the roses and the deciduous trees during winter.
The garden is pretty clean now most plants are resting, we are looking forward for spring. But the orchids are very good, in fact this year is the year for orchid to me, my cymbidium are flowering beautifully. I must show you all about these flowering orchids in the next post.
There is no recipe for you in this post.
