Pumpkin Porridge with Wolfberries

Monday, January 11, 2010




Do you believe that i have had the pumpkin for over two months? Ha, it’s a wonder they manage to stay edible all the while. I had read somewhere that pumpkin could store very well in the freezer, and so i did it. After so many days that passed, when i finally dug them out from way inside the freezer, they remain quite fresh, except being darker in colour.

Still, wanting to be cautious, incase they had turn bad, even though i couldn’t see from the appearance, i cook two little chunks in boiling water and tried them. Phew, they still tasted the same, sweet and flavourful. Rest assured, the fate of those little pumpkin chunks were decided. Into my stomach they would go. Hahaha!

Well, no worry, they wouldn’t be alone. Some porridge and wolfberries would accompany them. Hehe!

And so, that’s how this story ends; a nutritious meal for a new day! Yum!
