A simple bowl of porridge

Dear princess is not feeling too well, sounds kind of sexy with her low voice. She's having a sore throat. Poor dear. Hope she feels better soon. Made her some porridge with codfish and carrot. Used ikan bilis (dried anchovies) and soybeans, as well as dried scallops to make the stock. She said she had porridge in school as well and her porridge at snack is nicer. Errr... I don't think so. I don't think they even do a stock to cook it in plus only carrots and bits of chicken. The only reason she says that is because she doesn't like fish. I have to force her to eat it. It's great when she's distracted and doesn't know what she's eating. Hehe. But not today, so I ended up eating the other half of it.

Made her some konnyaku jelly and cut up some strawberry to add in. Looks lovely made from my Daiso moulds. ;)

Sorry to hear your princess isn't feeling well. It's so hard when kids are sick.
I love how she feels the school snack is better than Mommy's - you just know that is not true!

Thanks to both of you for your concern. She's well actually, not sickly or anything, just a bit of coughing and phlegm irritating her throat. Haha, ya, she does like my porridge but she doesn't like fish, so that spoils it all. Yup, I try to give her water but she hates water. I have to collaborate with teacher in school to make her drink. Haha. And she always comes home happy when she finishes the entire bottle. She used to have frequent nosebleeds up to a few months back and I told her it's because she doesn't drink enough so now that she does, the nosebleeds have stopped. :)
