Simple One Dish Home Cooked Dinner For Two

Here is another home cooked meal to clear the fridge. I bought a packet of tau pau or packed bean curd sheet and it has been kept in the freezer. The night before, I thawed the packet of tau pau in the lower shelf of the fridge so that I can use it to cook for dinner.
 I separated the pieces of tau pau and cut into square pieces like the above. Using a non-stick frying pan, I pan fried the tau pau with a little oil over medium flame.
 I took out another tub of pre-cooked stewed pig's leg with mushrooms and sea cucumber from the fridge and re-heated it together with the fried tau pau.
 A friend gave the above packet of dried noodle for hubby to try.
 I cooked the dried noodle in boiling water and used only half the portion of seasoning provided. Hubby ate the noodle with the stewed pig's leg, mushrooms and sea cucumber dish. No noodle for me because I was happy to clear off the rest of the stewed dish without any wastage.

3 different varieties of hibiscus from my garden.
They are now flowering non-stop after being exposed to full sunlight.

 Looks like another pink hibiscus from the above same yellow hibiscus plant.
Spotted a big garden snail early in the morning.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Let me see your kindness to me in the morning,

for I am trusting you.

Show me where to walk, for my prayer is sincere.

    1. The tau pau needs gravy or some kind of sauce to taste good.

  3. The home made meal looks good and must have been filling and, therefore, satisfying. It's lovely to see a plant such as the hibiscus flowering after a period of not doing anything. Very pretty!
