I wish I could go back to the days when everything was simple. See, I grew up in a not so well-off family but we were very happy. I remember this dish. This is pretty much what we ate all the time. My mom’s cooking skill is superb! She could make a simple dish into a somewhat sophisticated looking food. Every dinner we gather to eat this delicious meal. It was so amazing how a simple dish could make too many memories. As the years went by, I added more ingredients to it to make it more awesome. It was perfect before but I thought I could make a bit of modification. Feel free to add your preferred ingredients. I highly encourage you to do so because we all want to eat something that suits our taste, right?
