Fried Fish, Angled Luffa, Daikon + Carrot Soup

This was 2 Mondays ago. Weather was hot and humid.

Fluffy cottony sky at 7:50am.
For breakfast, we had glutinous rice dumpling and leftover rice porridge.
This was our breakfast. I had mine with unsweetened black coffee and hubby had his with milo.
Angled luffa waiting to be harvested in my garden.
These were the first 2 luffa harvested from the vines. Each luffa measured about 1.5 feet. I will be cooking these luffa for dinner.
Received a comb of banana from our neighbour.
Angled luffa cooked with garlic, dried shrimp and egg.
Fried grouper slice topped with fried ginger strips, garlic oil & soy sauce.
Soup: Daikon, carrot, red dates, goji berries, and pork bones.
Soup is good for hot and humid weather.
Dinner: 3 dishes with steamed rice.
After cooking dinner, I have to take a rest, dry my sweat and take a bath before I can settle down to enjoy my dinner in comfort.

Lord, you know the hopes of humble people.
Surely you will hear their cries and
comfort their hearts by helping them.
You will be with the orphans and all who are oppressed,
so that mere earthly man will terrify them no longer.
(Psalm 10:17-18, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. Aha!!! I had glutinous rice dumpling for breakfast too, the Hakka variety with peanuts. It's in my blogpost today. Are those what we call kay leng chio? I also bought some this morning at the shop near my house. We like these best!
    Oh? So those ketola is called luffa, eh? I never bothered to find out the English name. We like it too, fried with egg or in soup. Lucky you, you have your own and SO MANY some more!!! I'm eating my heart out! LOL!!!

    1. The ladies in the house love daikon - I think it is a common feature in Korean cuisine. My late father would not touch it - he said it would "wash away whatever medicine one takes". I guess it detoxifies, not for people on any kind of medication.

    2. I don't know the name of the banana but in the old days these were used to feed pigs. The banana usually has seeds in them, but I like the taste and texture of the bananas. The elderly people will say that these bananas won't give you wind.

    3. I love daikon too. I know that many elderly people won't eat daikon for the same reason that your late father gave. They believe that this is especially so for those taking Chinese medicine or herbs.

  16. Hola de nuevo, Nancy. En Sevilla, la ciudad donde vivo, cuando tenemos el cielo cubierto de nubes como la que se ve en tu fotografía, decimos que el cielo está "aborregado", porque se parece mucho a un rebaño de borregos y ovejas.
    Tomo nota del plato de luffa, y lo haré sin encuentro los camarones secos, pero con calabacines, que son muy parecidos, ya que la luffa escasea por aquí.
    Ahora bien, lo que seguro que voy a cocinar es el mero frito, ya que todos los ingredientes se encuentran fácilmente y porque el mero que se compran en los mercados es muy bueno, fresco, y pescado en nuestras costas.
    Ya lo dice un refrán español: "Del mar, el mero, y de la tierra, el carnero".
    Que disfrutes de un buen fin de semana.
