Abang tukang sayur in my place told me that he wants to go to Solo alias pulkam. Why so late i asked him and he said now the tickets already cheaper than last due days. O. yeah.... it was so crowded anyway, good choice.
So, i prepare many things before he leaves. Lazy housewife that's me, ain't go to market and prefer buy ready food, anything like bakso, empek-empek, soto, nasi Padang, and those food make my purse dried, healthy reason not in my priority :-D
I buy many raw vegetables, fruits, and the most important is 'lontong' with banana leaf. Fear and greedy make me buy lontong for 25 pieces and i realize that's too much after i'm ready to cook. Firstly, i wanna cook 'lontong sayur' coz i wanna feel like 'lebaran' again, made by me. In every 'lebaran' day i never cook main dish such as ketupat/lontong sayur, sambal goreng hati, rendang, or it's complement. As a daughter and a daughter-in-law, it's my obligation to visit my parents and my mother-in-law and taste 'lebaran' food they served. I just made some cookies like nastar, sagu keju, cheese stick, semprit, putri salju, and chocchips cookies for my big family, over than 50 jars. To release my intention making my own lontong sayur and feel lebaran again or whatever, i order it.
God knows me better. My fear and greed as much as my intention lost easily. In front of my stove, i change my mind. I put squashes and beans back to refrigerator, and suddenly i wanna eat Kupat Tahu ala Bandung. I don't know why coz i never eat and cook this food before. Searching the recipe from internet takes time so long rather than the cooking, and i trust my self to use this recipe. Yepp...yepp...yepp..... less than an hour, my husband and i eat Kupat Tahu ala Bandung. My kiddos don't want it this coz they already eat at school. They first day school after holiday is fun cooking theme, they cook fried fish which is the fish is from fishing they own at school pool, cook sauteed kale from school garden, and cook rice too, great school activities :-)
