Would you agree with me, whenever CNY is drawing near, we are like going into marathon baking away all sorts of cookies and dishes?

And it seems like 24 hours is just not enough, right?  So many things to prepare for.

Well, today my post is Garlic Roasted Peanuts.  Other than cookies, I guess peanuts are just one of the thing that we shouldn't miss out.  It is great for snack and I am sure everyone loves to have peanuts to bite and munch.

Previously I just would buy the ready roasted pack of peanuts  after I saw Wendy of Table for 2....or more  posted this Garlic Roasted Peanuts, I thought I would like to give it a try.

It is good for a change to make this at home as this version is baked in the oven rather than the usual deep fried.

Do hop over to Wendy's blog for her recipe.

I only used less than 1/2 bulb of I might not stand the garlicky breath smell after I have eaten this! Hee....hee.....  
and I gambled it of putting 1/2 tbsp salt and the end result is just ok for me.  Or am I a salty person? I think the type of salt I am using is.....let me check it out later.....

Golden brown.... peanuts or "Fa Sang"

                                  Anyone.....Kacang,.....kacang putih......?  hee...hee.....
