During our younger days when families are big and not well off, my Ma used to cook a pot of noodles to serve as a soup with rice for dinner. Probably this will help to feel the stomach. Main ingredients is this noodle aka 'Low Si Fun'. Rest of ingredients, it depends on what is available either leftover chicken or meat, fish balls or most common chicken innards [very cheap].
This Saturday, we cook this noodle for lunch after its absence for many, many years [brings back old memories when we do have other noodles together with rice for dinner such as 'mee sua' soup and 'tau chiam' soup]. Do watch out for the recipes later.
