I was in the garden today picking the snake beans when I saw something amazingly wonderful!
Cepat2 I called The Other Half to come outside and bring the camera along with him.
He said, “this better be good…”
Hehehehe, of course lah! .
This was what I saw hiding behind all the green leaves.
Our very first kacang botol or angle bean or winged bean.
I had to do a double-take when I saw it just to reaffirm what I was seeing sebab sungguh lah tak percaya you.
Berbulan2 we all menanti benda ni nak berbunga and berbuah macam menunggu duit setempayan jatuh ke riba aje!
I started tanam dia early December tahun lepas, 5 bulan baru keluar 1 buah, tak ke lama tu namanya.
Kacang panjang yang I tanam berbulan2 lambat dari dia pun dah selamat I petik and masak berkali2.
And then suddenly The Other Half said, “Oh yeah, look at their purple flowers.”
Sangat lah gumbiranya hati ku when I could see so many purple flowers around.
And he said, “And you thought they weren’t going to flower and fruit. Ye of little faith!”
But I tak petik lagi lah, I want it to grow a bit more sebab kecik lagi. So tadi I cuma guna kacang panjang aje lah for dinner.
Miss 8 is suffering from cough and cold again so tadi I masak chicken soup for dinner.
Miss 8 had it with rice, I had it with rice and ulam kacang panjang and sambal ikan bilis leftover.
While The Other Half and Miss 13 had the chicken soup with grilled cheesy toasts.
He said it’s really lovely to have it like that.
Takpelah, I would rather have it with rice and sambal, lagi menyelerakan untuk anak tekak Jawa I ni, hehehe….
