Hello SEASONS bloggers,
Photo Link Open Sunday July 17 – Wednesday July 20.
LOVED all of you showing up last week – my guess is some came back from vacation/holidays?
Welcome to my new blog home! There’s a great advantage to this theme –no extra clicks with giving a comment! The only disadvantage is that somehow my photos are not as sharp as on the other blog theme.
Jeu de Boule – a tribute to a happy and exhilarating day in June we had in Nice, (pronounce Niece) a few years ago, on the French Mediterranean. Thinking about the loved ones of whom lost a family member on Bastille Day, July 14, a few days ago.
My friend’s brother is a horticulturist, who developed the garden where she lives. This lemon tree looked so luscious!
My parents were born in Indonesia but had the Dutch citizenship, and went with thousands of others to the Netherlands, when there was a political coup. This Indonesian dish is called gado-gado (meaning snacking, because you can eat it all day).
Rice on the bottom, then cooked green cabbage, green beans, bean sprouts, hard boiled eggs sliced, raw cucumber cubed. Crispy fried onions and a peanut butter sauce on top.
Sauce: boil 2 cups of water with salt and pepper. Reduce flame to low. Keep adding peanut butter slowly (keep stirring) until it has the consistency of yogurt.
At the end add about 1-1 1/2 eating spoon of sweet soy sauce. As spicy as you like with adding hot chili peppers or sambal (hot chili pepper paste)
(Some restaurants made this dish into a salad. Not the genuine Indonesian way to eat it.
The perfect meat with this dish, BBQ pork in 5 big cubes for each, on a stick, called sate (not: satay as some people spell it). Dip the sate in the same peanut butter sauce.
*Chinese soy sauce is salty – it will not taste good with this dish), Conimex or ABC are a good brands for sweet soy sauce (also called Soy Sauce Manis).
*Am not a food-whiz, so I buy the crispy fried onions. Not the American Fried onions which are surrounded with a batter. I get these in a Korean food market, if there is not an Indonesian market around.
Your turn to share your season!
