anyone else have that feeling yesterday morning? that feeling where you start questioning yourself on everything you did the day before. why didn't i eat a solid breakfast? why did i drink champagne at work? why did i accept that free shot of tequila from the bartender? wait, why didn't i eat a solid meal all day on a day that i drank more than i ever do?
by the time you reach age 27, you should have this plan mastered by now, you KNOW how to avoid a hangover..... but sometimes a big hangover creeps up on you like you just got smacked upside your head.
so here comes the best hangover food to the rescue. i just thought it was a delicious bowl of rice porridge, until my mother-in-law convinced me it's hangover food. simple as this, she said "when my kids go out drinking all night, they need to eat this in the morning." ok, we'll do just that. mama knows best!
vietnamese rice porridge
(aka best hangover food ever)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground pork
1/2 medium red onion, diced
8 1/4 cups of water
1 cup white jasmine rice
2 chicken bouillon cube
1 tablespoon sugar
3 cloves of garlic, grated
3 tablespoon fish sauce
2 teaspoon ground white pepper
3 stalks of green onion, chopped
the mixture will continue to thicken in the pot once it cools. when you reheat for leftovers, you just need to add some water before reheating, and you'll be back to that silky texture from the first day!
sorry this wasn't given to you YESTERDAY, like when you actually needed it, but i'm eating it until the whole batch is gone, even though i'm no longer suffering from the nasty hangover. i AM suffering from lack of sleep though. i tried staying up until the end of the sugar bowl, slightly napping on the sofa until 1:30am!! yikes! good thing it's friday, my friends (at least i have good leftovers to eat for lunch :P)
