Pineapple & Mantis Prawn Fried Rice For Dinner

It was still dark when we started out on our morning walk. The moon can be seen clearly above us.

When I took this snapshot of the moon at 6:33am, it was partially concealed by the dark cloud.
On our way home, I stopped to take a snapshot of this multi layered petals pink hibiscus by the roadside.

I don't know what to do with the last packet of frozen mantis prawns. I was thinking of frying pineapple rice for dinner and adding the mantis prawns to the fried rice seemed a good idea.

Ingredients used: cooked rice, mantis prawns, pineapple chunks, egg, bird's eye chilies, big onions, minced garlic, tom yum paste, fish sauce, salt & sugar to taste. I also added in raisins and toasted cashew nuts.
Blanched home grown sweet potato leaves and okra, drizzled with garlic oil, oyster & soy sauce.
Delicious and satisfying dinner for 2 retirees.

I haven't re-visited this place so I don't know if this place is still open for public viewing.


Shout for joy before the Lord, O earth!
Obey him gladly; come before him, singing with joy.
Try to realize what this means - the Lord is God!
He made us - we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Go through his open gates with great thanksgiving;
enter his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
For the Lord is always good.
He is always loving and kind, and his faithfulness
goes on and on to each succeeding generation.
(Psalm 100:1-5, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. Thank you, Diane. Even though okra is very common here, it is still nice to grow in our own garden. Keep safe too.

  5. I love cashew nuts in fried rice because they add creaminess to the rice. So tasty! I couldn't see mantis prawns in your fried rice, did you smashed up the mantis prawns into the rice?

  15. So many ingredients in your fried rice! I'd leave out the raisins if for myself, don't like the sudden sweetness.

  18. The prawn meal looks good. We had a coconut shrimp meal the other week. Delicious. I need to make it again or find another recipe to use the coconut milk in. Its still in the fridge. I use brown rice as its better for my husband as he's got diabetes. I actually like it better than minute white rice. Nice to see the moon. We see it when we walk at night. Usually its lighter out now when we walk since its daylight savings time. Enjoy your day. Nice scripture you shared. :-)
