Today is a school declared holiday for Drama Queen and Cass. We had brunch at 10-ish a.m with the hubs and mil. By 12 noon, our stomachs were growling already. While our pot of mung beans + stinky grass + sweet potato 'tong sui' (sweet soup) was brewing on the stove, Drama Queen quickly baked a Kris Jenner (Kim Kardashian's mother) chocolate brownies.
Our tea-time consists of mung beans + sweet potato + stinky grass + palm sugar 'tong sui':
And chocolate walnut banana brownies baked by Drama Queen:
Our 'stinky grass' herb. Its scientific name is Ruta / Rue. This herb pairs very well with mung beans. The Chinese old folks use it to eliminate toxins and heatiness from the body. Rue has a very pungent yet very pleasant smell. While some may get offended by the smell, others love its aroma.
