Simple Yet Satisfying Dinner

The first thing I usually do upon reaching home after morning walk and breakfast is to sweep my porch area. 
 There was one morning when I noticed this ant which I have never seen before.
 It was moving very slowly and I managed to take a few snapshots of it. I lightly swept it into the dust pan and drop it onto the grass by the road side. 
 Hubby's customer gave him some green mangoes, which I made into pickles.
 I added a few crushed dried bird's eye chilies into the pickles.
 Sharing some of my pet Betta fishes.
 I no longer place plant cuttings in the fish bowls to make space for the fishes to swim in.
That morning's harvest from my garden.
Red, green okras and non spicy red chilies.
 I had some left over fish head curry brought back from the restaurant which hubby and I couldn't finish. All I have to do was add in the okras and chilies harvested from my garden.
I added a small plate of deep fried tiny dried anchovies to the curry dish to make a simple yet satisfying dinner for 2 people.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

But most of all, dear brothers,
do not swear either by heaven or earth or anything else;
just say a simple yes or no so that
you will not sin and be condemned for it.
(James 5:12, The Living Bible-TLB)

  10. You know how to fix anything!! A good variety today. And you have answered my question about the fish plants. The ant is really creepy looking. I bet he has strong jaws. He is, in fact, pretty terrifying.
