Stir Fried Green Beans [干炒四季豆]

干炒四季豆 (Stir Fried Green Beans)

Prepared dinner a bit earlier than I usually do yesterday, managed to snap this photo before the sun gone behind the mountains. Mom's style simple fried green beans with dried anchovies, we were grown up with stir fried vegetable dishes cooked with either dried anchovies or dried shrimp. This is a really quick dish, can be served with steamed rice or as a side dish.

Since John has started moving around, I always cooked something simple and quick or slow-cook dish with minimal preparation and washing. John is very attached to me right now, he is almost my second shadow. Whenever I am busy in the kitchen, he will be there too busy with stuffs on the floor and in the drawers. So far he had broken a saucer (luckily it was not my favourite one) and showered himself with breadcrumb. Papa said it was very expensive to shower with breadcrumb. :D Going to install a child lock soon, it is not healthy to say "don't" and "no" to a toddler. Lock it and save the troubles.


Onions = Balls
John likes to play with those onions.

My granny likes to cook vegetable dishes with dried anchovies or dried shrimps too especially with winter melon in summer.

I have to chop green beans diagonally like yours, looks more pretty
