Cuttlefish With Peanut Sauce & Home Cooked Dinners

During this rainy season, my sweet potato leaves are growing fast. We couldn't consume fast enough and I have been distributing the leaves to my friends and neighbours. One of the ways of cooking sweet potato leaves is to blanch them and drizzled with garlic oil and soy sauce. Another way is to saute them with garlic and salt.

This is one of the many varieties of sweet potato plants.

Dinner #1
Sauteed sweet potato leaves with chopped garlic
Sprinkled with crispy deep fried chicken skin.
 I boiled chicken in coconut water together with the coconut flesh, red dates and goji berries. Yellow noodle for hubby.
 I prefer mine with mee sua (soft and fine wheat flour noodle).
This is one of our favourite snack i.e. cuttlefish and water spinach with peanut sauce.

Dinner #2
Pan fried frozen paratha bread with non-stick pan.
Paratha bread is best eaten with home cooked beef and potato curry.
Sauteed home grown cucumber with dried prawns and garlic.

There was a Family Fun Day event at the Polo Ground, Ipoh.
After breakfast, we stopped at the recreational park.
It was about 9:05 am and it was a sunny day.
It was a busy Saturday morning at the park.
The event had ended and many were preparing to leave.
It was hot and I stood under the shade of a tree to snap these photos.
These photos were taken against the sunlight.
After a few snapshots, we went back to our car and drove home.


I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you

with inner strength through his Spirit.

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.

Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong.

(Ephesians 3:17-17, New Living Translation-NLT)

    1. Thank you, Sandee. It is good to get out for exercise and fresh air. Staying indoor too much makes one tired and lazy.

  10. That’s cool. We have sweet potato vines here for decorative uses and I have never heard of anybody eating the leaves but I can see how it works.
    I love family fun days!!
    Have a great weekend!!

  11. I am convinced that you can cook anything and make it taste so good. What is Parantha bread? It looks like a cross between flatbread and a cracker.

    1. Yes, I think you have described the bread correctly.

  13. You are creative in serving up dinner!

    My sweet potato leaves always end up edible only right at the top. The rest will be fibrous.

    1. To ensure that they are not fibrous, I will peel off the skin from the leaf stalks.

    1. I think so. So far I have eaten a few varieties. Choose the tender ones for less fibrous texture.
