Home Cooked Old Cucumber Soup With Pork

Some days, we don't feel like eating noodles so we ended up ordering some fried stuffs from the noodle stall at our regular coffee shop. Hubby ordered unsweetened black coffee and I ordered herbal tea. Then I ordered 4 pieces of fried bean curd sheet with fish paste+nestum, 2 pieces of fried wonton and 2 pieces of fried tofu.

Simple breakfast for hubby and I.

Most days I ordered herbal tea without the egg. Some times I will order herbal tea with the hard boiled egg.

Back in my garden.
Aglaonema - Thai Beauty.
Croton - green and yellow leaves.
Ixora buds.
Red Dragon Fruit plants grown from seeds. The plants are still in a small pot. I have not decided where to place these Dragon Fruit plants because these plants have long and sharp thorns.
My creamy white fragrant Gardenia blooms.
Firecrackers flowers.
Purple orchids

Home cooked dinner.
A friend gave me an old cucumber. I used it to boil soup with carrot, red dates, goji berries and pork with the skin on.
I took out the pork from the soup when it was cooked just right, cut it into pieces and serve in a separate plate.
I used sambal belacan with some lime juice and soy sauce as dipping sauces for the pork.
This is our home cooked dinner without any rice. The leftover or whatever pork we could not finish, we kept for next day's lunch.


This Good News tells us that God makes us ready for heaven
- makes us right in God's sight -
when we put our faith and trust in Christ to save us.
This is accomplished from start to finish by faith.
As the Scripture says it,
"The man who finds life will find it through trusting God."
(Romans 1:17, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. What an indulgence in the morning to eat deep fried food for their crunchy and crispy texture, not so much to fill up hunger. Hope your dragon fruit plant will bear nice sweet red dragon fruits. My spouse loves drinking old cucumber pork soup. Which part of the pork meat did you use? I always ask my spouse to eat the pork used to cook the soup but his parents will want to throw away the pork used to cook the soup saying that the meat is not tender so sometimes I eat those pork for them because I don't like to throw food away.

    1. For this soup, I used "pat kin teen" in Cantonese (the part that didn't see the sky). Its the "armpit" part. I sometimes use pork ribs or soft bones to boil soup. I too do not like to waist food, so I will eat up everything in the soup.

  11. I think your breakfasts are so interesting as opposed to some of the quick food breakfasts that people eat in America such as pop-tarts, danish, and sugared cold cereal. I love all your beautiful photos for the flowers.
