September 4th
National Macadamia Nut Day
 
Daddy had a macadamia nut tree and he lovingly cared for it. Not something that grows and thrives well in So. Cal. because of the frost. He grew bushels full, we cracked the super hard shells in the vice in his shop, put the nuts on a cookie sheet over night in the oven with just the gas pilot, and they were PERFECT!
 
Onion & Garlic??? I'm going to HAVE to get some of those!
