My #1 used to stay in the hospital a lot when he was young. Island Hospital, Lam Wah Eee, Adventist, Loh Guan Lye and even Gleneagles in Penang. So, I am an expert in cooking ‘hospital moey’ or porridge served to the sick kids.
Nay….like the above one. Mince chicken and season with cornflour, pepper and salt. Then, cook a cup of rice with carrot, potato and spinach. I added onion and garlic for extra flavour. When the porridge is almost ready, only add in the chicken.
This morning, I prepared it for #1 because he got his knees and elbows injured (AGAIN!!!) when his bike crashed. No major injuries but those red patches are so ewws.
He was sleeping when I finished cooking it and after I scooped a bowl, my four years old ran to grab a stool and placed it next to his big bro’s bed.
He shouted from the room, “Mommy, I take chair to put kor-kor’s moey already. Come!!!”
Actually, I wanted to eat it myself. But the little one was so helpful and wanted to give his big kor-kor breakfast in bed.
He feels so useful running errands for the injured bro. And carrying stool and fetching water make him so helpful and happy in the meantime.
