4-in-1 Porridge, Steamed Eggplants & Okra With Sambal Dried Shrimps

Hubby has been busy reinforcing the support to hold up the Bauhinia Kockiana plants in front of our house. Thanks to his hard work, the beautiful and the bright orange Bauhinia Kockiana blooms are putting up a show for those passing by my house.

Sometimes motorists will stop their car to admire the flowers and some even stop to comment on the beautiful flowers and wanted to know where they can buy this plant.
~~~~~
For the time being, I will have to switch off my lazy mode and back to home cooking. Covid-19 cases have been reported all around us and getting too near for our comfort and safety.
Home cooked "4-in-1" rice porridge.
Ingredients added to the rice porridge: minced pork, salted egg, century egg and pickled veggie (char choy).
Steamed home grown green eggplants and long green okras, topped with sambal dried shrimp.
4-in-1 rice porridge with dashes of white pepper powder.
Love this delicious rice porridge dinner, so flavourful.
Sunset at 7:20pm
I got to take these snapshots when I took out the garbage.
It is not always I get to see such beautiful sunset.

WISHING ALL MOTHERS
" HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY "


That's how God's Word vaults across the skies from sunrise to sunset,
melting ice, scorching deserts, warming hearts to faith.
(Psalm 19:6, The Message-MSG)

  12. Such great sunset photos. I love it when they have color to them.
    Your food is something else. I don't think that we can get hardly any of what you cook here in Tulsa. It sure looks good.
    Be safe. Our governor has opened up the whole state so people are walking around like there is no pandemic and although it is much abated I fear what is going to happen.

  18. Bauhinia Kockiana plants are beautiful! I had never heard of them before. Your supper looks wonderful! I have not done a whole lot of cooking this week. I bought chicken and vegetable samosoas and Tamrind Chutney at the farm market this week and home made pheroghis. it is almost as good as a restaurant. Tonight we made homemade poizza. But I would rantehr have your 4-in-1 Porridge, Steamed Eggplants and Okra With Sambal Dried Shrimps! Lovely sunset!
