Post Christmas Day: Lunch, Snack & Dinner

We didn't go for morning walk the day after Christmas. Instead, we drove out to town for breakfast.

Sunrise at 7:20am
Morning sky at 7:45am.
From the look of the sky, rain was expected later in the morning.
~~~~~
We had leftover for lunch.
I steamed 4 baby corns (1 eaten by hubby before I took the snapshot), and I reheated the yam puffs (given by a friend) and 2 croissants (bought from Aeon Big Falim) for lunch. Happy to clear all the above items from my fridge.
I made Konnyaku jelly with cut orange because I couldn't find other fruits in my fridge.
My neighbour gave me a big papaya, cut half and kept the other half in the fridge. We had the above sweet treats for our afternoon snack.
~~~~~
I had a packet of stinky beans and some remaining sambal dried prawns which I need to clear from my fridge.
I cooked a plate of stinky beans with sambal dried prawns (bought from Penang). This time I cut the big stinky beans into quarters which makes it easier for us to bite.
Dinner for 2 people: Stinky beans with steamed rice.
I reheated the leftover beef with ginger and spring onions which I almost forgot about it.
We used to pass by this corner house on our morning walk. We are attracted to these round shaped cockscomb flowers planted by the roadside. I had to stop to take a snapshot of the flowers before continuing our walk home.


And when the green shoot comes up out of the seed,

it is very different from the seed you first planted.

For all you put into the ground is a dry little seed of wheat

or whatever it is you are planting,

then God gives it a beautiful new body-

just the kind he wants it to have;

a different kind of plant grows from each kind of seed.

(1 Corinthians 15:37-38, The Living Bible-TLB)

  5. The stinky beans must have been pretty big to start with. Still chunky after getting quartered.

    The konyaku looks good to me.

  17. I always wanted to plant that flower but never got around to doing it. Wonder if it is easy to plant or not. Do you know?

    1. From my experience, it should be easy to plant and easy to take care.

  18. Corns are delicious! Good that your husband is ok to eat croissants, corns and yam puffs as lunch. Orange in jelly? Don't think I have eaten that. Sounds tasty. Petai sambal goes very well with rice. Must take some effort to cut the petai as the petai is small. Very tasty dinner. Good that you remember the beef dish for dinner. I don't think you both can eat all the petai sambal for dinner. Did you?

    1. You guessed right, we couldn't finish all the petai sambal.

    1. I try as far as possible not to waste unless the food is no longer fresh and good to eat.
