Cleaning out my closet…

No, I was not cleaning out my closet. Actually, I was cleaning out my fridge! Well, the other morning, I saw that there were quite a lot of little containers of leftover food in it so I decided to have porridge for breakfast.

I picked these three to go with the porridge…

…the baked beans…

…from my western breakfast not too long ago and one of the salted eggs…

…that my missus cooked one evening when there wasn’t much food left for our dinner.

The baked beans, REX Brand, were not to my liking the first time because they were kind of hard. That was why when I heated them up in the pan, I let them simmer for a bit longer till they were soft. They were not so soft till they were really mushy but still whole – I love my baked beans like that but at least, they were soft so I enjoyed them a lot more this time around.

This was what was left of the salted fish…

…that the nice lady at my favourite fish and seafood stall gave me that day.

My missus took some and soaked them in water for a long time before frying them and it turned out that they were not salty at all….or at best, just a little bit. It was very nice but the next time, we shouldn’t soak it for too long. Salted fish is salted fish – it should be salty.

Everything went so well with the porridge…

…to which I added a bit of Bovril. There wasn’t that much rice left, maybe just two spoonsful so I added a lot of water and let it boil for a very long time. In the end, I did have quite a lot, definitely enough for me.

I certainly enjoyed my porridge breakfast. The last time I had porridge in the morning was in the middle of last month and that was when I went and fried an omelette and some ikan bilis (dried anchovies) to eat with it. I would say that I enjoyed it just as much this time around so I think I will do the same, just finish off the leftovers, the next time I see the need to clean out my…fridge.
