This is fried rice with some chicken fillets, pumpkin and beetroots. Healthy and nice color.
簡單的一餐, "有營有色" - 我的簡約生活Bon Appetit ! - bottom of the plate, sometimes for covering the bowl. Turnover is a picture plate.
Poppies, lavender are my favourite flowers. My painting on ceramic is not good. I can't control the color. Come out always not so bright after fired. Recently, I tried experiments of eco print/ dyeing. Thought beetroots can give brugundy color . I sliced the beetroot and boiled in a pot. So pretty color but when I soaked the fabric in, color doesn't bright as the purple beetroot, only brownish. I gave up.
Then cut the rest beetroots, pumpkin, a little ginger and some boiled chicken fillet. Put all together in a pan with little oliver oil and salt. Covered and heated for 10-min. Pour the cooked rice, stirred with an egg, that's it - a colorful bowl of rice without much seasoning. Sometimes I find myself eclectic in eating. I eat like a bird. My eyes are bigger than my stomach. Buffet is sumptuous but too much and my waste. My motto is "enough is enough".
That day after the light lunch, I promenaded along the office waterfront.
Stolled along and got some leaves with little purple rims. Wanted a go for leaves print.
Laid the leaves with other eucalyptus leaves and caps. Bundled, brought to boil and kept in the thermo pot overnight. To my surprise the green leaves gave green color and caps gave brown though not too bold. The outlines still clear.
I also put the small "round-paired" eucalyptus leaves which used to give deep red/orange color but this time only green. These leaves were stored in freezer for a month. I was wondering if the freezed leaves have any difference in eco print. Have so many queries in mind. Eco print is interesting. Sometimes pleasing outcome, sometimes daunting. Very anxious for the arrival of just ordered book "Eco Colour". Hope to find some hints and answers.
