Sweet Potato Leaves & White Brinjals From Our Garden.

One evening I felt like cooking a simple dinner. I checked the fridge and saw the bottle of sambal belacan (spicy dried shrimp paste). Then I went to the garden to check if there is anything that I can harvest for the dinner.

I managed to harvest some tender sweet potato leaves and three white brinjals. These should be enough for two person. It was a meatless dinner except for the dried shrimp sambal paste and the egg omelette. Anyway it was too late to defrost the frozen meat. It was a very warm day, so I boiled plain porridge.

I blanched the sweet potato leaves and steamed the white brinjals. I peeled the skin off the white brinjals and topped the dish with the sambal paste.
I need to use up the chives given to me by a friend (from her garden), so I made omelette with the chives. 
 I had a bottle of preserved salted radish which I accidentally opened a few days ago. Just nice to go with the plain porridge.
A simple dinner for 2 people.

I see God moving across the deserts from Mount Sinai.

His brilliant splendor fills the earth and sky;

his glory fills the heavens, and the earth is full of his praise!

What a wonderful God he is!

  10. I really like the fence. I would like a fence like that one. My fence is 26 years old and it's falling down. I have a guy coming in next week to start fixing it up along with parts of my deck. See ya Nancy.

  11. I enjoyed seeing your home cooking. Many of the ingredients are new to me so it was very interesting to find out what you did with them. The fence looks very solid and the early morning sky is stunning.

  19. I really like your simple meal for two. Sambal makes everything taste good. As a child I used to love those pickled radishes.
