Rice porridge with Kimchi and fried anchovy
January 24, 2016 6:34am CST
I long for the simple meal of rice porridge with Kimchi and fried anchovy. These few days of rich food have made me long for the simple and nice food. I guess I am not born to feast on chicken, duck, fish, shrimps, pork, and abalone for a meal. The worst is to have rich food for a few meals. I rather have a simple meal that is less oily and fatty. Fried anchovy does not really qualify as a healthy food, since it is commonly deep fried. However, Kimchi goes well with fried anchovy. The problem is in getting fried anchovy, since I do not like to fry anything at home. It will take forever to clean the kitchen. The supermarket sells Kimchi but I am not sure about fried anchovy, or known as Iban Bilis over here.

My step dad loved kimchi at ate quite a bit of it when he was stationed in Korea back when he was in the army sometime in the late 50's early 60's-- in fact when he finally met and married my mom in 1996, he made some for the family (probably not the authentic way, like in the wonderful ground) but in a pit and I thought it was quite good . . .

Wow, I have yet to hear any Westerners making Kimchi at home. Over here, Kimchi is available in the supermarket, and made of many different vegetables. It is cheap and nutritious. I never think of making Kimchi at all, since it is hard work.
