French Beans, Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Porridge

It is a simple recipe with some simple ingredient.

I was like “Oh no” when Sarah shake her head after the first spoon of porridge, then she said “Mi Mi eats”! I really thought she dislikes the porridge; but luckily she continues to eat the meal and even finished it.

Actually the porridge has a weird taste; it contained the strong taste of french beans yet the sweetness from the sweet potatoes. I am not sure if it was a strange combination but as long as Sarah doesn’t complaint, I’m okay with it.

Oh...pumpkin + sweet potatoes??? Just wondering how is the taste like by combining these 2 ingredients. Since Ryan dislike sweet potatoes now, I never use it as one of the porridge ingredient.

Pai seh, I am not good in craft work altho I enjoy doing it. But for sure I will submit it to your blog if I have done any. Thanks for the info.

ya hor, why I never think to chop the french beans in a very tiny size but luckily Sarah still eats it.

Xie xie! You always leave good and nice words for my food post. Thanks ya!

Maybe Sarah is the most weird one because she eats weird food..hehe.
No lah, I mean I am lucky that she eats the food I cooked.

Actually pumpkin and sweet potatoes is quite a not bad comby (I think, hehe) because both also has sweet taste to the porridge. But with french bean added..hmmm..
Ryan dislike sweet potatoes? Why?
