Planting Bean Sprouts During MCO

PLANTING MODE....

Seriously?  Yes, serious, for the first time, Reanaclaire did some homegrown vegetables... er..without soil, of course.  How and what motivated me?  My neighbour!  He did a whole tray of bean sprouts and he showed me when it was time for "harvest."  Very easy, he reassured me, he even taught me how to do it, knowing yours truly does not have a single pot of plant in the house.  True enough, it was very easy!  If I can do it, anyone else can too!

Just green beans will do, I have a small packet in the house so I did some experimenting.  I remember doing this during my primary school days!  Only this time, there were much more beans..... LOL...
Soak them for 6 hours first before laying them out on a tray.... 
For the first day, I used a damp cloth to lay the beans on.... 
Oh yeah, they must be kept in a dark place... no sunlight or light...
They are "plant vampires" ...  LOL...
See, they are actually growing... one day after..... 
My neighbour told me to press them with something heavy so that they don't grow long and thin...
I don't have the exact size to press them with... 
Therefore, some are short and some are long... 
Different sizes... 
In another day or two.... 
Time for "harvesting!"
I stood for half an hour to get them cleaned and plucked... phewwww....
Not an easy job... needs patience..... 
And all in they went into my plate of fried meehoon yesterday....
Bye beansprouts!

  1. A lot of work to pluck and clean them. Well done to you for doing it! :) Now, you can grow other plants like Nancy.

  2. MCO really make us adventurous at home, right? LOL! I tried this some years ago and yeah, turned out quite nice but very small, not like those Ipoh ones.

  3. I was thinking of doing this too but my girl's not into taugeh and besides, it is available at the fruit and food shop near my house, can just go over there and buy.

  4. Easy to grow and harvest but not so easy when it comes to removing the skin of the mung beans. I used to pluck the roots but now I no longer remove the roots.

  5. Wah!!! I will do it tomorrow. I love to eat fried bean sprout with salted fish.

    Now your neighbour didn't teach you how remove all the heads from your taugeh farm. I have seen in the wet markets where the seller soak them in water until the heads expanded slightly on its own. Then they use a sieve to repeatedly shake them all. Much of all the floating heads could be scooped out. Bingo!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
