Green Vegetables From The Front And Back

SHORT FINGERS....     And I planted some Ladies' Fingers aka Okra using some seeds given by my neighbour.  He told me that it would take some time to see the "harvest" and he was right.  I planted six seeds in my two posts more than a month ago... and I could only see the harvest this week.  I think it was around two months?  Did it really take that long or I do not have the "green fingers" so they speak... I think I have short fingers cos this type of okra came out stubby and short but very crunchy!

I love ladies' fingers... I used to buy them from the market, either I just steam them or just stir fry them with dried prawns and chili... That is why I tried planting them for my own consumption and it works!  For the first time in 6 decades, I planted something edible!   LOL... 

Taken some time a month ago or so... 
Budding out from the seeds.... 
I didn't know I have to put in fertilizer every two weeks.... 
No wonder they were so slow!
I only got to know this after I complained to my agro-friend...
Then she gave me a packet of colourful drops... 
Ta-da... after much fattening.... it finally blooms and bear fruits... 
These are short and stubby kind of okra...
It is time for harvest.... so my friend said..
Otherwise it would be inedible... 
Just two inches high!
And these are plucked from the back garden...
they belong to my neighbour...
He couldn't finish in time... 
So every now and then I did the harvesting... LOL... 
For my lunch and dinner.... fried rice with minced meat...  
I used basil, french beans, long beans, pandan leaves for steaming the rice...
All from the back garden... 
plus my three stubby okra from the front!
LOL...

  1. Lucky you! I'm not into planting vegetables now, can just go and buy at the shop near my house. Too stressful! I just plant things I can use for my cooking - serai, kunyit, spring onions, pandan, Thai basil and so on.

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...
