Saturday Snippets…2nd July 2022…Today’s one-word prompt is “Glory”

Welcome to Saturday Snippets this is one of my favourite posts of the week I learn much from my research and your comments so please keep them coming…

Today’s word prompt is “Glory”…when my muse suggested “Glory” my first thoughts were of food surprises there…lol…the beautiful water spinach called morning glory is one of my favourite stir-fries…but let’s start with a place my hubby wants to visit…

Glory River Kwai…

Glory Bush…

The Glory Bush has spectacular, bright purple flowers…Glory Bush is a member of the Melastomataceae or Senduduk family. Melastomataceae come from tropical and subtropical regions in the world. The family means ‘black mouth’ in Greek. Its fruits stain the mouth black when you eat them. Malaysians prize Senduduk for traditional medicines.

Morning Glory…

One of my favourite side dishes or main dish with rice it is a beautiful vegetable dish that I often eat…

Thai vegetable morning glory

Stir-fried Morning Glory or Pad Pak Boon Fai Daeng is also known as water spinach…It is a very popular vegetable dish in Thailand and one I have for breakfast/brunch quite often with rice.
This is a very quick dish to cook once you have all your ingredients prepared..5 mins at the most.

  • 1 bunch of Morning Glory
  • 4-6 cloves of garlic
  • 3 or more Thai Chillies
  • 2 tbsp of Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tbsp of  Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 -1 tbsp of fermented soybean paste or oil with soya beans ( optional)
  • 1/2 to 1 tbsp of oil
  • water if required.

Let’s Cook!

Wash and cut your morning glory into 4-6 inch pieces.
Bash the chillies and garlic in a pestle and mortar
Heat the oil in a pan until very hot.
Add the garlic and chillies and stir-fry ( stirring) for 15-20 seconds be careful not to let the garlic burn.

Stirfried Morning Glory
Add morning-glory and all other ingredients.
Stir-fry for 40 seconds and add water if required and stir-fry for another 10 seconds.
Serve with steamed rice or as a side dish.

Morning Glory Birdsong…

Gaelic Glory…

Glory Days Springsteen…

Glory Lily…plant.

Glory Lily is a perennial tropical flowering vine that makes a stunning, exotic house plant. This vining lily will grasp at anything for climbing up. Providing its weak, wispy vines with support will give the tendrils something to cling to…

Such pretty flowers the Glory Lily is a beautiful plant but like many plants, its flowers, leaves and roots are used in tropical medicine to treat many diseases …It has been used in the treatment of gout, infertility, open wounds, snakebite, ulcers, arthritis, cholera, colic, kidney problems, typhus, itching, leprosy, bruises, sprains, haemorrhoids, cancer, impotence, nocturnal emission, smallpox, sexually transmitted diseases, and many types of internal parasites.

Glory B waterfall…

A beautiful waterfall where it is an ideal place to sit and relax…a great little waterfall in Madison, Arizona…

Easy to access the waterfall is a very pretty little waterfall and worth a visit if you are in the area…

The glory of the Snow, Chionodoxa, is one of the first bulbs to flower in spring…

One of the earliest and most beautiful spring-flowering bulbs…once it is established it naturalises well and looks lovely planted among other perennial plants

Glory Lake Holland…

Just 3 and a half hours from Calais, near the small village of Oploo in Holland, you’ll find 12 acres of pure supercharged ‘next-generation’ carp fishing heaven. A picturesque gravel pit as old as the hills, but with all the scientific twists and turns of what Carp Fishing will become over the years to follow… an angler’s delight.

Glory wood Dorking…

Glory Wood and Devil’s Den is a 13-hectare (32-acre) nature reserve southeast of Dorking in Surrey…this wooded site has views over the North and South Downs. The main trees are oak and sweet chestnut and mammals include bats, roe deer, badgers and foxes…it is a nature lovers delight.

The word ” Glory” features in many religious songs…I will finish with this one by John Legend…
