Chicken with Potato

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Chicken with potato was a must have dish for me when I was small. I love the aromatic gravy, the crumbly feeling of the potatoes every time I take a bite of it. Mummy used to prepare this for us as we can basically just have this alone with rice. Slurrp slurrp... It was always 'nasi tambah lagi' for me every time I had this. This time it was no exceptional at all. Hubby commented that I seems to have more rice yesterday when I prepared it for our dinner. Calories counter going up here... SOS SOS... I guess I just loved to eat... Piggy piggy me.. *paiseh paiseh*
