Roast Chicken Leg & Lotus Root Soup For Lunch, 4th Day CNY 2020

Today is Tuesday and also the 4th day of Chinese New Year 2020. Hubby and I don't know what to eat for breakfast. We ended up buying roast pork and steamed buns to share with a friend at our regular coffee shop.
 This is RM10 worth of roast pork, enough for 3 people.
 3 steamed buns for 3 people.
Both of us ordered unsweetened black coffee.
 After breakfast, I harvested the above snake long beans from my garden.
*     *     *     *     *
Elder son has gone back to work and younger son doesn't want any lunch.
So for 2 people, I prepared the following for today's lunch.
 Roasted chicken leg.
(marinated with oyster sauce, soy sauce, honey, salt, Chinese cooking wine)
 Lotus root soup
(boiled with peanuts, red dates, goji berries, carrot, pork ribs)
 I think I will need to roast it a little longer to get a nicer and darker colour.
 This is my lunch without rice.
I will not be cooking dinner because we have just received an invitation for dinner.

The following items are from the National Museum.
British Army Radio Telephone.
 General Service Medals Malaya.


Now God gives us many kinds of special abilities,

but it is the same Holy Spirit who is the source of them all.

There are different kinds of service to God,

but it is the same Lord we are serving.

(1 Corinthians 12:4-5, The Living Bible-TLB)

  10. The steamed buns are empty inside? Reminds me of the roast pork and 'mee koo' (pink tortoise bun) combo, which I love.

    That's a bountiful harvest of snake beans.
