Making 2nd Batch Pineapple Jam.

Saturday, 88th day MCO
We didn't walk in the park because we woke up a bit late. We only walked to the nearby shops behind our house, stopped to buy hubby's breakfast and then walked back home.
On the way home I stopped to snap the above picture of pigeons on the power cable.
~~~~~
Breakfast
Fried glutinous rice for hubby.
And some pig's skin and long bean curry which was eaten with the glutinous rice.
I ate home made oat porridge with dried cranberry and walnut pieces.
Our breakfast with a pot of Sabah tea.

Making 2nd batch of pineapple jam.
My friend, neighbour and I enjoyed my pineapple jam. Since we have all finished the pineapple jam from the 1st batch, it is time for the 2nd batch.
This time, I used 2 pineapples.
Place the pineapple pieces in the chopper or blender.
Poured all the roughly blended pineapple into a pot and boiled it over low fire about 30 minutes. Then add in cane sugar or brown sugar. I don't have cane sugar so I used brown sugar. (The sweetness according to the your taste). Followed by lemon juice from 3 to 4 lemons. I used juice from 1 lemon and a few limes (all that I had in the fridge). 
Remember to stir every now and then. Simmer over low fire until the jam thickened to preferred consistency. Add sugar if needed. Let the jam cool completely before storing in containers.
From 2 pineapples, I get 5 small tubs of jam. The above 3 tubs will be given to friends and I have 2 tubs in the fridge for ourselves.
This is our first time tasting the chicken rice from our regular coffee shop. A plate of sesame bbq chicken and rice to share with hubby. We chose to dine-in at the coffee shop.
We had Chinese Century Pears for mid afternoon snack.

Home cooked dinner
I boiled soup with daikon, carrot, red dates, goji berries and pig's shoulder bones.
Snake beans, red okras, prawns cooked with spicy sambal paste.
Steamed Chinese white pomfret (tau tai chong fish) with ginger.
Garnished with home grown spring onions and drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.
Satisfying dinner for 2 people.
Hubby had steamed rice while I go without rice.

Without wise leadership, a nation is in trouble;

but with good counselors there is safety.

(Proverbs 11:14, The Living Bible-TLB)

  9. Love all your meals because I like eating a bit of everything. Wah, your friends are so blessed to get your home made pineapple jam. Love your oats porridge as well. What brand of oats do you use for your oats porridge? Add hot water or requires cooking the oats?

    1. I use various brands, not really particular about the brand. Currently, I am using Instant Quaker oats but I prefer to cook over the fire for a short while.

    2. So you are using the red Quaker oats package instead of the blue package which needs to be cooked.

    3. Actually I bought the Instant which is red package thinking I will just use hot water to make oat drink. But it turned out that I tend to eat oat porridge more often, so I prefer to cook it for a short while. Most probably will be switching back to blue package after this.

  17. I observed that usually breakfast you and your hubby will eat outside food and dinner will be homecooked. Blessed is your hubby, your homecooked meals always look so tasty and you always think of different dishes to cook everyday. Kudos.

    1. You are very observant. Our breakfast are usually outside food unless we have bread or something that is easy to prepare. I usually cook 1 meal a day and that is dinner. There are times I couldn't think of what to cook or am lazy, so will end up buying take away food.
