Today I revisited something I made once before - Tuna Potato Patties. This time I took note of what I threw into the mixture so that I can remember the next time I want to make this again.
I haven't quite perfected it yet because some of my patties cracked when fried. I may not have added enough binding agents to hold the patties together. I think it needed a bit more mashed potatoes and a bit more beaten egg.
Let's take a look at my garden or rather my chili plant. For the first time ever, I am getting a good number of chilies!
They are flowering quite well and most have developed into chilies. In the past, either the flowers or the young chilies dropped off.
These chili plants grew from my compost heap. They must have come from the chili seeds or bad chilies that I threw away.
I bought a bunch of daun sup and since the roots were intact. I decided to plant it. It is growing quite well and I won't need to buy anymore daun sup, provided my plant does not get eaten up by the snails!
This is my pot of messy looking chives that has been growing since God knows when. It is a very hardy plant and thrives on neglect.
I am going to put the recipe here so that I can refer to it in future.
