Chicken Porridge with Yellowish Seasoned Broth (Bubur Ayam Kuah Kuning)

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

It is almost end of September and we definitely have to say good bye to summer. I am so not ready for winter, especially Canadian one. When the season changed kids easily get sick, runny noses is what you can expect. Well not only kids, but adults too. I was having sore throat and won't go for any fried foods. Since one of our good friends just got tooth extraction, she ordered some "soft and easy to chew" food. The choice went for chicken porridge. And this was what we have. (PS: the picture is an old file from last year though).
