Steamed Fish & Porridge For 2 Dinners In A Row


Last Wednesday Thursday was a public holiday and we didn't go for our morning walk. Instead, we waited for a friend to come take us for breakfast.

Took this snapshot of the sunrise at 7:24 am while waiting for our friend.

Harvest from my garden
I harvested some okras and white brinjals. The 2 brinjals with black spots have to be thrown away because of worms inside. I also harvested some chives and chives buds.

Home cooked dinner - Day 1.
I blanched the okras, white brinjals, some chives and chives buds. Then I drizzled garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce before serving.
I steamed 3 white pomfrets (palm size) with chopped ginger, garlic and onions. After steaming, I drizzled with oyster and soy sauce, Chinese cooking wine, garlic oil and garnished with home grown spring onions.
Simple home cooked dinner with rice porridge.
Crepe ginger by the roadside.

Home cooked dinner - Day 2.
I boiled soup with Sichuan pickled vegetable (char choy) with pork ribs, carrot and tomatoes. Hubby loves this appetizing soup.
Special request from hubby - Onion omelette.
Steamed Threadfin with chopped ginger, garlic and onion. When cooked drizzled with oyster and soy sauce and Chinese cooking wine and garnished with lots of home grown spring onions.
Simple home cooked dinner with steamed basmathi rice.
While our car was waiting at the junction, I took a snapshot of the Ipoh city town hall.

A fool is quick-tempered; a wise man stays cool when insulted.

(Proverbs 12:16 - TLB)

If you are angry, don't sin by nursing your grudge.

Don't let the sun go down with you still angry - get over it quickly;

for when you are angry, you give a mighty foothold to the devil.

(Ephesians 4:26, The Living Bible-TLB)

  11. I like steamed white pomfrets. I have been cooking and eating more fishes lately since hubby went for few fishing trips last month. Fish is better and healthier than other meats.

    1. Its a blessing to be able to enjoy fresh fishes that your hubby brings home from his fishing trip. We used to enjoy fishes that my son brought home but now he is staying too far away.
