Porky Carrot Potato soup

Yup, as mentioned in my eariler post, I had a bloated tummy after my dinner! But luckily it's bloated due to the consumption of a large bowl of soup. Water-bloatedness is much much better than food-bloatedness. Because water essentially passes through the alimentary canal rather fast as compared to food, therefore water-bloatedness normally only last half an hour or so. Food-bloatedness, I tell you, is very very different! Trust me, I've been through it! LOL... I cannot practially move - will only feel better when I lie down on my back! Furthermore, the bloatedness stays for a couple of hours! Argh... Even my magical black charcoal pill can't do much at the face of my food-induced bloatedness! LOL.

Anyway, back to my porky carrot potato soup, it's those time of the week where I have the urge to try something new. And my urge was to have the porky carrot potato soup. My mum used to cooked it, and so did Limin's grandma on some occasion. I never really know how to cook it - I wasn't taught the proper way to cook it. So, I had to use some of my imagination and common sense. And it turned out to be a pretty simple dish to cook as well! First cut out the carrots and potatoes to the appropriate sizes and dump them into a pot with boil water. Then, I need to check if the carrot and potatoes are ready... how? Simple, just used a fork and poke the carrots/potatoes. As long as it's still hard, it means that I still need to let it boil for some more time! Added some salt as well. Then when the carrots and potatoes were half ready (meaning the fork can be poked into the carrots but not totally into the center of the carrots), add in the diced pork and some more salt! Then let it boil some more until the fragrance smell comes out! Boil some more, and adjust the taste with some salt, and that's it! A nice pot of fragrance-smelling porky healthy carrot potato soup! =)
