Glutinous Rice Dumplings & Corn Soup For Dinner

Yesterday, a friend dropped by to give us 4 glutinous rice dumpling aka "bak chang". The dumpling festival or the dragon boat festival falls on the 14th June, 2021 (today). There are many versions of glutinous rice dumplings and each dialect has their own version using different types of ingredients to make the dumplings. These days, we can conveniently buy and enjoy bak chang throughout the year and need not have to wait for the festival which is celebrated once a year. Okay, let's get back to my post for today.

A pair of pigeons on the power cable above us on our morning walk.
Our morning walk will take us pass a roadside stall selling nasi lemak and economy fried noodle. Hubby ordered a packet of economy fried rice vermicelli and collected it on our way back. This way we needn't have to wait with the other customers.
Economy fried noodle is easily availabe in our area but this is our favourite especially with the added sweet and spicy sambal.
Half boiled egg for hubby.
We shared the toast and the fried noodle.
2 green brinjals or eggplants harvested from my garden.
Harvested 4 long green okras from my garden.
~~~~~
Lunch
I heated up the leftover Hokkien prawn noodle soup from the previous day. 
I didn't want noodle so I poured some soup over the blanched the eggplants and okras for my lunch. Weird? No?
With the remaining soup, I cooked noodle for hubby with thin slices of pork belly and blanched chives.

Dinner
I was not in the mood to cook dinner because the weather is hot. I told hubby that we will be having glutinous rice dumplings (which we bought a few days earlier).
As usual, 1 dark and 1 lighter shade dumpling.
Just before dinner, our neighbour gave us home made corn soup. So we had bak chang with corn soup for dinner.
Meat, beans and salted egg yolk as filling.
We each had half of the lighter shade and half of the darker shade bak chang. They both taste just as good.
Thanks to our neighbour for this delicious soup. With so many ingredients or treasures, we can taste the natural sweetness of the soup.

This is what I have asked of God for you:
that you will be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love,
and that you will have the rich experience of knowing Christ
with real certainty and clear understanding.
For God's secret plan, now at last made known, is Christ himself.
In him lie hidden all the mighty,
untapped treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
(Colossians 2:2-3, The Living Bible-TLB)

  6. I seldom get to eat white glutinous dumplings. Your friend's corn soup looks so sweet with carrots and corns. So yummy! Not weird at all because the prawn soup with the okras is like vegetables tomyum or vegetables curry. How did you grow the okras to be so long?

  10. The gal that does my manicure and pedicure makes dumplings and my husband loves them. Several times a year she will bring them the day I have an appointment and my husband is always thrilled when she does.

    The food looks fabulous. I've not had breakfast yet so I'm hungry as usual.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Nancy. ♥
