Fresh goodies in SoCal 太陽の恵み

My friend gave me those fresh guavas from her garden. The heavenly aroma is intense, and it brings me back to my days in Hawaii. Once I drank so much guava juice there, and gained so much weight! (the guava juice contained so much added sugar...) Those guavas from her garden were naturally sweet. I was told to put some rock salt and black pepper, so I tried it, and it was good!


These are white guavas. I had never seen the white ones before! They taste the same as the red ones.


My friend also gave me some beautiful fresh Swiss chard, too. They were so big and long that they were longer than my arms! (and I have long arms.) I sauteed them with olive oil and garlic.
They tasted so fresh - it was unbelievable! Right now I am growing my own herbs, such as rosemary, basil, parsley... my dream is to grow my own vegetables. It will happen one day soon :)
