As I wrote in one of my previous posts, life’s quite hectic at the moment. I’m trying to balance all aspects of life and still feel relaxed (which I find pretty difficult ^^” ) In addition, the cold (finally) got a hold of me (yes, just when Spring’s about to happen), so I’m sniffing and coughing away as I typ (TMI, i know haha.. sorry). Anyway, because time’s limited and I don’t feel very well, today’s post won’t be full of promising words to persuade you to make this super easy, simple, fragrant rice dish packed with soft, creamy taro (aka yam) and lots of chicken. No, instead, I will let the foodporn and recipe speak for itself :3 So, sit back and enjoy this recipe, while I’m going to try and get some extra sleep 🙂

Love,

My Linh

  1. Heb je blog al zo lang niet meer bekeken T-T, maar drool wel altijd wanneer ik je instagram foto’s zie op insta of fb *Q*. Nooit geweten wat je met taro kan maken, maar dit is echt een leuke + makkelijke recept zeg! Als ik weer is in de toko ben, ga ik het kopen 😀

    1. Hehehe sorry voor de late reactie. Ben zelf ook niet veel meer op m’n blog geweest, zoals je merkt :’) Dank je wel meis, dat is het doel van mijn foodporn 😉 Die taro is inderdaad super makkelijk. I-luv-it. Ik maak het altijd vooruit als ik weinig tijd heb. Opgewarmd in de magnetron is het nog steeds heerlijk. Perfect student food 😀 Hoe is het verder met je? En de studie? Vind je trouwens super cute samen met je <3
