Most of Indonesian people eat rice three times a day. So most of us cook several kinds of food in the morning to be eaten by the whole family since morning, for breakfast, until night, for dinner. But not in my family, I mean my family before I get married. We take bread in the morning, and for lunch and dinner we take rice. But in my husband’s family, they take rice three times a day. Now, in my small family, I still take bread or anything that can replace it for breakfast and still preparing food for the whole day. I have a 2 years old kid in the house, so mostly I make soup. I love vegetable so much. This is one of the famous Chinese foods; I change it a bit, so it’s easier for my child’s tongue to receive it. Tasted so light, but still spicy. It’s called Cap Jay.
