Canned everything

On most days, I ensure we eat healthily. That means, steamed fish, stir-fried vegetables and a bowl of nutrituous soup at the dinner table. We don't eat normally red meat or processed food.

I felt like cooking Teochew muay (plain rice porridge) tonight. That's when all the forbidden food like luncheon meat, canned fried fish with salted black beans, canned cuttlefish and pickled lettuce suddenly make an appearance.

The kids love porridge dinners because every dish is salty and unhealthy. More delicious than the usual bland and healthy food, they say.

I guess it's fine as long as we don't do this too often. Rusty will be eating boiled chicken and rice for dinner tonight. At least he is eating healthily.

Oh man, I haven't eaten luncheon meat, canned cuttlefish and pickled lettuce in ages. Now you've got me longing for it :D

hhmmm porridge. Knowing that I love porridge, last night my Taiwanese friend here made me a pot of 卤肉 to go with porridge, so I just soaked some rice this morning. Oh I can't wait to eat now :)
