Wanna a bowl of golden porridge?
It has been over a week since Ming Ray suffered from mouth ulcers and couldn't really eat solid food. Poor boy has been on semi fluid, having just oat, yogurt and milk shakes for days. Seeing him getting better, I decided to make some changes for his lunch. Maybe a simple rice porridge, but how to make this plain rice porridge to be more nutritious yet appealing to stimulate his appetites?
Let me have a look in my fridge, what I have in there?
A quartered of pumpkin (hey, this add sweet flavour and create attractive color)
A packet of Manuka Leg hams (emm...this soft and salty ham seem nice to go with rice porridge).
Yes, why not use these Western and Chinese combination in my rice porridge.
So this was what we had for our lunch J
Ray finished his bowl of porridge in no time and best part was this little veggie hater didn't even notice that he had just had a bowl of nutritious veggie porridge J
For mummy, another salted egg topping J
Halloween is just around the corner, your might have jack-o-lantern pumpkin carving project on its way, what to do with the pulp? Pie, cakes again? Why not try this non-traditional way to get rid of your pumpkin pulp J
Follow-up on my last write up on Mince Carrot Peanuts Porridge, this is another healthy with rich vitamin A porridge that worth to tryout.
