Home Grown Spring Onions & Home Cooked Dishes

Sometimes I forget what I have bought and what I have placed in the refrigerator. One day I found 2 packets of onions in the fridge.
 There were roots and shoots growing out of the onions.
I planted all the onions in my garden.
And some in this pot.
Time to harvest these spring onions.
This is the first batch I harvested.
Below were some of the ways I used the spring onions for my cooking.
#1 - Steamed balls with spring onions
(fish paste, minced meat, minced prawns & spring onions)
15 steamed balls and 1 green veggie for our dinner.
#2 - Steamed eggs with spring onions and sprinkling of garlic oil.
#3 - Steamed white eggplants or brinjals & spring onions.
Topped with sprinkling of oyster sauce & garlic oil.
#4 - Steamed sweet sour pork ribs & sprinkling of spring onions.
#5 - And for the remaining spring onions, I lightly blanched them and add some sprinkling of light soy sauce & garlic onion.
That morning, I also harvested some papayas.  Half ripe one I kept and waited for it to ripen. The green ones are good for boiling soup. I kept one for myself and gave the rest away.

Ending the day with a beautiful sunset.
The sun rays giving the clouds a silver lining.
Ending this post with a lovely sunset.


Praise him from sunrise to sunset! (Psalm 113:3)

In the farthest corners of the earth the glorious acts of God
shall startle everyone. The dawn and sunset shout for joy!
(Psalm 65:8, The Living Bible-TLB)

  16. Oh Nancy, your photos made my mouth water! The tops of spring onions taste so gorgeous. When I grew onions, I always used them in cooking. Now I have chives in the freeze. I find them excellent in omelettes. Enjoy your weekend.
