I enjoy eating this incredible dish on rainy days. My Grandma used to cook this all the time! It is a good thing that she taught me how to cook it. Now, I get to share it with you guys. My kids love it! I don’t have any problem making them eat vegetables because they are used to eating my dishes and most of the time, I add vegetables to it. This recipe is pretty basic so feel free to add more ingredients to it if you feel like it even though it is already perfect. I hope this somehow gives you satisfaction and warmth. In about 4 hours, you will have a dish to remember. It is worth it. Enjoy!
