Uci's Birthday (part 1)
Today is our friend's mother's birthday. Yup, it's our friend-neighbor: mas Chairul's mom-in-law or Mbak Dian's mother's birthday. Since we are subway-line-6-family which means that we are just a few minutes away by subway, mas Chairul invited us to come for a dinner over Uci (or Arnis Saber's birthday) oh..it's his Mom's name.
What would a traditional birthday without nasi tumpengan* be?
*a mountain-shaped rice with side-dish surrounding it.
As for the other main menu that we had, since Uci comes from Padang, West Sumatra....any fiesta like this would not have been complete without the representative cuisine of the region: no other than Rendang.
I needed not to worry though there were more meat than usual, since there were also some side dish like vegetable saute &.....this one: apple pie that my wife made.
We so happened to have lots of apples at home (thanks to my friend Mr. Panjo who sent us a box of apples:)
Okay..these were (only some of the) dish we had today: fried eggs, anchovies sambal, nasi tumpeng, rendang, lalapan, lontong, lontong sayur, and apple pie.
a surprise from om Wawan: molen pisang!! yeaach. .it's like a pancake with banana inside.
This is om Wawan. He made these molen pisang!!!!
Wow, it must've taken a lot of time and energy to make these molen pisang.
