Home Cooking Home Grown Vegetables

Since I started to plant edibles in my garden, I have to be diligent to cook my garden produce. There is no point in planting vegetables if I do not want to cook them. When my bitter gourd plants started producing, we were enjoying home cooked bitter gourd dishes quite often.

Below are some very simple home cooked dishes that I have cooked for our dinner for 2 people. The bitter gourds and chilies I used were home grown. The fishes were from my son's fishing trip.
Dinner for Day 1
 Left: Yam or taro cooked with dried prawns and garlic.

Dinner for Day 4

The origin of this library started in 1931 as Ipoh Juvenile Library.
If it is not raining, we get to enjoy this lovely sky.

It is nice to drive when the roads are quiet and with light traffic.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all
pure and full of quiet gentleness.
Then it is peace-loving and courteous.
It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others;
it is full of mercy and good deeds.
It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere.
(James 3:17, The Living Bible-TLB)
