    I bought your spiral-bound book so it can lay open and flat while I channel you!

    This reminds me of my mom's recipe for Filipino arroz caldo! One pot, chicken legs, ginger, except its more of a porridge-y texture. THAT SAID I'm a lover of crunchies so I'm gonna have to try this. This is a game changer I can feel it!

    i made this and f**ked it up, but it was still good. Anyway i was kinda over the leftovers, so i legit hacked this into a grandma style casserole and it was lit… cream of mushroom + stock, with crushed potato chips and cheddar crust. Big recommend… the sliced ginger was giving big water chestnut energy…. if u know u know
