Potato and meat congee, Desmond entered to primary school

Hi all, how are you, hope you all fine and have a good start of New Year.
Sorry for not updating my blog, this is due to I have a hectic schedule of the past 2 weeks, busy with school started and arranged my little son Desmond entered to primary school. I also helped my sister (who lost her beloved husband last year) on her new house matters (she is going to move near to my area and she is temporary staying with me now) and her kids transferred school matters. Another matter i busy was to furnish my new house, shopping for curtain, sofa, dining table, and etc. I planning to move to my new house in 1-2 weeks time, so I will not have internet connection during this period but I promise I will update my blog soon the connection is up. I hope I'm able to bake some Chinese New Year cookies in my new house and share with your.

Luckily my sister is staying with me during period, since I'm busying with my new house things, she is helping me to cook lunch and dinner. This is the potato and meat congee that prepared by her. A very simple and delicious congee, just add minced meat, potato and carrot into rice and add a lot of water and cook become congee.

Ah...starting out in school is always a major miles stone. If he is flustered, I am sure the congee would have comforted him.

Congrats for moving into your new house. I am sure Desmond will soon make lots of friends in school and love it. The first day of school is always a bit daunting for kids. You did the right thing to guide him on the first day especially how to get food:D You bowl or porridge looks so inviting makes me crave for a bowl now. If you ever organise another bloggers meet, do include me! I would to meet with all the wonderful people. Look forward to see your CNY cookies recipes & photos! Take care.

I know how hectic it would be to prepare for the new school year. More so if 1st time starting actual formal schooling. Hope Desmond is more settled in now.

Sonia, don't worry about blogging, blog-hopping and whatnot! I myself haven't been able to do all these at this time of year! I'm swarmed just like you're!

Desmond should look excited on his first day of school! Why he looked like that one ar? HAHAHA! My mom told me that thank goodness I didn't whimp and cry on my first days of school back then ... HAHAHA!
