Home Cooked Herbal Chicken Soup & Mixed Vegetables.

We had a very heavy downpour last night and knowing that my plants were all well watered, I lingered on bed for a little longer. We had breakfast before attending the Sunday church celebration and after church, we came straight home. We had for lunch some fruits, biscuits and I made tea with the tea leaves from Germany given to me by a friend.
Looking at the clouds, it looked like there will be another heavy downpour tonight. I could hear the thunder rolling at a distance. Since we had a light lunch, we had dinner early. It is better to have home cooked dinner in the comfort of our home than going out in the rain looking for dinner.
This is the pretty tin container for the tea brought back from Germany by a friend. Everything is written in German so I have no idea what type of tea leaves but we love the fragrance of the tea. We drink it pure without sugar or milk.
 I cooked herbal chicken soup with a free range chicken (kampung chicken) and a packet of dried herbs. This time I used this vision pot to slow boil the soup.
I had the skin removed from the chicken. I chopped the chicken into big pieces and I boiled the soup until the meat easily came away from the bones.
I cooked a plate of mixed vegetables with the broccoli which I bought from the newly opened Cash & Carry Econsave in Jelapang. It was selling for less than RM 2 for a head of broccoli. This was our home cooked dinner without any rice.

It is God's will that your good lives should silence those

who foolishly condemn the Gospel without knowing

what it can do for them, having never experienced its power.

(1 Peter 2:15, The Living Bible-TLB)

  8. Your chicken soup looks so delicious! The vege dish looks good too. I can eat all these without rice too. So you drank the German tea like chinese tea without any sugar and milk. Did it taste like red chinese tea?

  9. Your chicken dish looks so warm and comforting! Nothing like homemade hot chicken dishes on a cold stormy day! The sky looks frightening! The tea tins are beautiful! They will look very pretty used as storage after the tea is all drunk.
