Home Cooked Chicken Soup & Noodle For Dinner

It was a Monday and we were expecting guests. Our friends dropped by our house for a visit before they proceeded to their hometown.
Our friends love sweet dessert (tong sui). I cooked sweet oatmeal (bubur gandum in Malay). I like to add fresh corn to the oatmeal porridge and I am glad that they like it too.
On Sunday we passed by this fence with the bougainvillea plant in full bloom.

Most of our towns and cities were covered with haze and we tried to stay indoor. Even though the sky is hazy, it was not hot and humid. Here is one of my simple home cooked dinners.
I cooked soup using chicken bones stock. I added 2 chicken leg, enoki mushrooms, homegrown spring onions, and smashed ginger.
We each had a big bowl of chicken leg soup. It may look plain but delicious when eaten with chili oil.
A plate of noodle for hubby. He likes his noodle mixed with dark sauce, light soy sauce, garlic oil and some chili oil.

And now that I am old and gray, don't forsake me.
Give me time to tell this new generation (and their children too)
about all your mighty miracles.
(Psalm 71:18, The Living Bible-TLB)
