Home Grown Chives Fritters With Peanut Sauce

Yesterday was 42nd day under MCO. It was still drizzling when I woke up in the morning. 
I went out to look for sunrise at 7:22 am.
Bauhiana Kockiana blooms.
Pink Showers or Pink Mexican Petunia Ruellia
Red Okra plants.
Round Dark Purple Eggplant
~~~~~
Simple breakfast for 2 people
Coffee, 2 half-boiled eggs, wholemeal bread with kaya and strawberry jam.
~~~~~
Lunch
Vegetable fritters using home grown chives and dried prawns.
Dipping sauce: peanut sauce and chili sauce.
I used the peanut mixture from this packet.
My neighbour bought honey melon and gave half to us.
Everyone who passes by couldn't help but notice these beautiful blooms.


O LORD, what are human beings that you should notice them,
mere mortals that you should think about them?
For they are like a breath of air; their days are like passing shadow.
(Psalm 144:3-4, New Living Translation-NLT)

  3. It rained over night and when I got up out of bed at 5:30am, the rain stopped. I can't seem to sleep longer anymore. Oh well, I'll rest later on.

  9. Yo también me he enamorado de la planta de la segunda y último fotografía.

    Las berenjenas, es una verdura que me encanta. En córdoba hay un plato muy típico, que es berenjenas a la miel.

    Te pongo la receta, por si te interesa.

    Ingredientes para hacer Berenjenas Fritas con Miel de Caña (para 4 personas):

    2 berenjenas
    Miel de Caña
    Harina de Trigo (unas 4 cucharadas)
    Aceite para freír (con medio litro tienes bastante)
    agua
    sal
    Receta para hacer Berenjenas Fritas con Miel de Caña (para cuatro personas):

    Prepara un cuenco grande con un litro y medio de agua y 1 cucharada de sal.
    Corta la berenjena sin pelar en rodajas no muy gruesas (de medio centímetro más o menos). Echa las rodajas de berenjena en el bol de agua salada que hemos preparado y deja 30 minutos.
    Luego escurre bien y pasa las rodajas de berenjenas por la harina.
    Pon a calentar el aceite (puedes usar aceite de oliva o de girasol) y cuando esté bien caliente fríe las berenjenas por tandas.
    Deja un minuto por cada lado y luego déjalas sobre papel absorbente.
    Cuando tengas fritas todas las berenjenas pásalas a un plato limpio y sirve con un poco de miel de caña por encima. Riquísimas.
