Crystal Vegetable, Stuffed Fish & Stir Fried Fresh Mushrooms For Lunch

After both my sons went back to work, I still have plenty of food stocked up in the fridge. That means the cook cannot take leave but have to continue to cook to clear the stock. Here is one of the home cooked lunches.
Fresh Crystal or Ice Vegetable
 I like to eat crystal vegetable with Kewpie roasted sesame dressing. 
 Plain stir fried fresh mushrooms with snow peas, ginger slices and garlic.
 Fried Stuffed Fish with spicy paste. I cut off too much of the tail, so not very presentable. I only know this fish as Ikan Cencaru (in Malay). My elder son brought back 10 fishes from his fishing trip when he came back for the Chinese New Year celebration.
 Leftover 3 pieces of steamed waxed duck (hubby love this).
 Steamed a little multi-grain rice for hubby.

The photo (below) was taken at the National Museum.
 The Pangkor Treaty
The following photos were taken in my garden. 
 In one of my earlier posts, I shared about a pink hibiscus coming out from a yellow hibiscus plant. After the flower wilted and dropped off, I noticed another pink bud (above) from the same stem.
This is same plant as the pink hibiscus but all this time, it only has yellow hibiscus with multi layer petals.
 This is another yellow hibiscus but the petals are in single layer. You can see the leaves in this picture is different from the previous two photos.


Long ago God spoke in many different ways to our fathers

through the prophets, in visions, dreams, and even face to face,

telling them little by little about his plans.

But now in these days, he has spoken to us through his Son

to whom he has given everything and through whom

he made the world and everything there is.

(Hebrews 1:1-2, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. Your hibiscus reminds me of my pink dogwood. Some years it is almost white. It had damage when it was young, and I always think that had something to do with it.

  9. ...crystal vegetables are new to me. Unfortunately, The Pangkor Treaty was never a part of World History in my high school, I sure learn a lot from blogging. I have never seen a hibiscus like your last one, it looks like a rose. Thanks Nancy for your visit, I hope that you are enjoying your week.

  14. I have yet to taste ice vege too like many here. The hibiscus does look a bit like rose. How many more meals do you need to cook to clear your fridge?

  17. I'd planned to go to the National Museum, then hubby got it into his head that we shouldn't look at dead things during CNY. (Supposedly should look at happy things) Later I shall go and see what dead things are displayed in this museum haha.

    The plant is going back to normal? Heh.

    1. Now that CNY is over, you can take the girls to the National Museum. My hibiscus plants are now happy getting lots of sunlight.
