It’s not very often I see cherimoya in the store so I snatched these up. They are also known as ox heart. I found them a little disappointing. Not as tasty as I remember them in India.

This time I bought whole cactus pads, still convenient with the thorns pre-removed. I borrowed a skiving tool from my … More Fresh Nopalitos (Cactus) With Eggs
With me being retired and Faye only working part time from home, we take every opportunity to get out of the house. After living in this part of the country for 30 years we are finally taking the time to explore near and far.
