Comfort Food

Posted in Interest, Life by thisisanexperiment on February 25, 2010

I probably should have judged my limits better last night, but I didn’t and ended up with an absolutely nauseous-self.

In retrospect, I guess it’s pretty bad when you fall down some steps, end up sitting on the floor (and feeling quite comfortable about it), and not feel embarrassed because you’re a bit too tipsy.

So today, all I could think about was comfort food to soothe my awful throat and queasy tummy- Century Egg Porridge.

Thick, gooey, yummy porridge with yummy century egg.

Today, I finally decided to find out how century egg is really made. I’m relieved to say that they are not made by soaking them in horse piss. At least that’s what wiki says:

Century egg, also known as preserved egg, hundred-year egg, thousand-year egg, and thousand-year-old egg, is a Chinese cuisineingredient made by preserving duck, chicken or quail eggs in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, lime, and rice hulls for several weeks to several months, depending on the method of processing.
