My One And Only Edible Greens

MY DAILY HARVEST.... almost daily, I can get two or three okra from my 7 pots.  At least one can be plucked if not a few.  Thanks to my green thumb friend who provides me with the okra seeds and to my neighbour who planted them in his pots.  As for me, I only do the fertilizing and watering at times.... and of course, the inspection and harvesting.  LOL.... 

The process of getting these okra is considered fast, in less than a month, the fruits are reaped.  I like seeing the flowers sprouting out and after that, the okras will appear.  I do not have a grassy garden, if I do, I surely will plant more edible greens.  When this lockdown is over, I will visit the nursery to get the necessary but before that, I must go consult my "Sifu" on how and what to plant!  LOL... 

Full blown flower and okras sprouting out from this plant....
These are stubby okras... 
Crunchy and nice at this length....
Wait any longer, they will become too hard and tough to be eaten... 

And recently my friend gave me the seeds 
to this Red Okra.... 
Red when uncooked...
Turned green when cooked...
Now only I know!
Enough for me.... 
Sometimes I just steam them...
and at times stir fry with dried shrimps.... 
Accumulated batch..... 
These went into my fish curry on that day.... 
Yes, I am an "Okra Woman" .....
LOL...

  1. Red ones? Never seen those before. So pretty! And your green ones are so cute! Short and fat! LOL!!!
    Yes, my girl planted a few too and they have started to flower and bear fruit. Still small though! Hopefully, will be big enough to harvest soon so we can cook and enjoy. I like them steamed and eaten with sambal belacan just like that, no need for any fancy cooking.

  2. Wah! I wish I had okra plants in my garden. It is a good idea to plant vegetables in the garden. Can harvest fresh organic produce everyday! Your sifu must be Nancy :)

    You really amazed me with your okra plants growing from the pots! I better start planting this too.

  5. I have never had any Okra, and did not know about the strange color change.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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...
