Giant Green Amaranth & Wonton Noodle

This was on a Monday, the 1st of March. We woke up later than usual to a beautiful morning.

Sunrise at 7:30am
I had one green Amaranth that sprouted out from the ground in between the flower pots in my garden. It kept growing until it was over 5 feet tall. It was big until it blocks the sunlight from my eggplants. The stems and leaves look tender and I decided to cut it down and blanch the tender parts for dinner.
Blanched green Amaranth drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce. This plate of green came from that 1 giant green Amaranth plant that grew in my garden. I didn't expect it to be still tender especially when it grew to that height and size. I am glad I didn't discard the whole plant.
Home grown sweet potato leaves, sauteed with garlic, chilies and prawn sauce.
Left over fish head curry with added pineapples.
Special request from hubby for deep fried crunchy anchovies. The anchovies were deep fried a day earlier and kept in air tight bottle. We love this with rice porridge but for today, I took out a bit for dinner.
Our simple home cooked dinner with steamed rice.

A friend likes to eat Buntong village wonton noodle, so we agreed to have wonton noodle for next day's dinner.
Three of us had the dry version and one had the soup version. Hubby requested for additional dumplings (wontons) for everyone. Some likes the springy noodles but we prefer this home made noodle which is less springy. This is one of our favourite wonton noodles.

And remember that your heavenly Father to whom you pray

has no favorites when he judges.

He will judge you with perfect justice for everything you do;

so act in reverent fear of him from now on until you get to heaven.

(1 Peter 1:17, The Living Bible-TLB)

  4. Wow! Two plates of greens for dinner! I am sure it is very easy to finish all the greens for both plates, right? I love to eat both greens. Good that the yinchoy grow so tall so that you have more leaves to harvest.

    1. This yin choy grew by itself and I just let it be. It grew so big that I have enough to fill a plate.

    1. We haven't been sharing meals throughout the lockdown and now that the restriction is more relaxed, we were able to meet up again.
