Fusion Breakfast & Teochew Porridge Dinner

The weather was fine yesterday morning (80th day MCO). We prepared ourselves for the morning walk.
 Snapshot of the sunrise at 7:05 am before we set out for our morning walk.
 We stopped to buy the Indian fried rice vermicelli from this roadside stall. After having tasted the fried rice vermicelli 2 days earlier, we returned for more.
 While waiting for hubby, this doggie caught my attention. Its owner was also waiting in line at the stall.

 Fusion Breakfast

 Indian fried rice vermicelli without egg for me.

Dinner
We were not very hungry so I cooked Teochew porridge.
 I steamed 3 Chinese sausages and sauteed napa cabbage with stuffed bean curd and home grown spring onion. Hubby had Teochew porridge while I ate the napa cabbage without any porridge.

I stopped watering my plants to take this snapshot.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

The person who does the planting or watering isn't very important,

but God is important because he is the one who makes things grow.

Home Made Gui Ling Gao (Chinese Herbal Jelly)

Yesterday morning (79th day MCO), I woke up to the sound of pitter patter of the falling rain on my front porch awning.
By 7:00 am, the rain stopped. 
 Lovely sunrise at 7:10 am.
 Starting off on our morning walk at 7:20 am.
 Reached home after morning walk at 7:50 am.

Breakfast
I took out the 4 bbq steamed buns given by a friend from the fridge. To warm up the buns, I re-steamed them for breakfast. 
 Steamed bbq buns and Nescafe for our breakfast.
~~~~~
Mid-morning, when I was de-cluttering my kitchen table top, I came across a packet of Gui Ling Gao powder. That was when I decided to make some herbal jelly.
Gui Ling Gao or Chinese Black Herbal Jelly
These chilled herbal jelly is soothing to the throat.

For lunch, I re-baked 2 croissants bought from the supermarket. I slit the croissants lengthwise to spread pineapple jam along the slit. Hubby and I had croissants with pineapple jam for lunch. (Sorry, no photo to show).
~~~~~
Mid-afternoon
 I have shown the above picture in an earlier post. I bought the above ice-creams from the supermarket, kept them in the freezer and totally forgotten about them. Hubby remembered and took out the 2 vanilla cornetto (blue wrapper).
 Hubby handed 1 vanilla cornetto to me.
Love the chunky nuts and crunchy waffle cone.
~~~~~
Dinner
I don't feel like eating rice so I cooked noodle for dinner.
 Ingredients for my home cooked noodle (wet version):
  • Stir fry chopped garlic in a little oil, then add fresh mushrooms slices, stuffed beancurd slices and stir fry.
  • Add in cut napa cabbage and add in water (just enough to make a small amount of soup base) and let the water boil.
  • Then add in the dried noodle and let it cook till the cabbage and noodle softened.
  • Add in the prawns (pre-marinated with a little sugar), oyster sauce and salt to taste.
  • Add the spring onions and the 2 eggs. Cover the 2 eggs with the noodle, off the fire and lightly stir.
  • You can dish out the noodle into a big bowl or into individual serving bowls.
  • The noodle is best eaten with the following condiments:
 Condiments: Dry spicy sambal and bird's eye chilies in soy sauce or sambal chili belacan if available.
Yellow Hibiscus with multi layer petals from my garden.


God - the one who made all things

and for whose glory all things exist -

wanted many people to be his children and share his glory.

So he did what he needed to do.

He made perfect the one who leads those people to salvation.

He made Jesus a perfect Savior through his suffering.

(Hebrews 2:10, Easy-to-Read Version-ERV)

Indian Cuisine For Breakfast, Glutinous Chicken Rice For Dinner.

We have been passing by this roadside stall whenever we go on our morning walk. There will customers waiting in line to take away their breakfast. So yesterday the 78th day MCO, we crossed over to the other side of the road to see what the Indian lady and her daughter are selling. They sells nasi lemak, fried rice vermicelli, and idli (rice cake). Since this is the first time, we bought the following items to try.
~~~~~
Breakfast
Fried vermicelli Indian style with spicy sambal.
Hubby's breakfast with Nescafe.
My breakfast with Nescafe.
2 idli (rice cake) with coconut chutney and dhal curry. I asked for 1 idli but I was told that I had to take 2 idli instead.
Mid morning: Hubby and I went shopping at Aeon Big Falim. Among the items I bought were the above ice-creams and some potato crisps (not in the picture).
A friend sent some of their home grown Jack fruits to us.
~~~~~
Lunch
Chicken herbal soup with croissants bought from Aeon Big Falim.
Remaining portion of the chicken herbal soup from the previous day.
~~~~~
Dinner
2 pax of glutinous rice with chicken (lor mai kai) from a friend.
I rather they do not use these aluminium foil.
To warm up, I steamed the lor mai kai.
Onion and egg omelette - special request from hubby.
Blanched baby kai lan (Chinese broccoli) drizzled with garlic oil and soy sauce.
Strange combination for a satisfying dinner for 2 people.

Dear friends, don't be bewildered or surprised

when you go through the fiery trials ahead, for this is no strange,

unusual thing that is going to happen to you.

Instead, be really glad - because these trials will make you partners

with Christ in his suffering, and afterwards you will have the

wonderful joy if sharing his glory in that coming day

when it will be displayed.

(1 Peter 4:12-13, The Living Bible-TLB)
