I Like My Food Spicy

There's always a new restaurant or two popping up in Quebec City thanks to the overflowing gastronomic curiosity especially post-pandemic. One of them is a quick-bite shop that sells Poké bowls and Vietnamien sandwich (Banh Mi), situated conveniently right next to my favorite boba place. So, inevitably I got myself one to eat with my boba, obvi. 
A month into this quarantine, I have been into this comfort food cooking frenzy. Today's binge was rice porridge/congee with aromatic chicken broth or Bubur Ayam Kuah Kuning. Bubur ayam is one of the a breakfast staples in the area where I grew up. It's cheap, tasty, and filling. Perfect breakfast menu, IMHO. I used to buy it from the street vendor almost every morning.

This pandemic quarantine gives me all the time in the world to re-make my fav snacks and unlimited access to the kitchen, so this wfh thing doesn't really work for me. I end up making snacks with whatever we have in the kitchen. If the pandemic doesn't get me, obesity sure will. Help!

Aaaaand I am back and I am ready for snack ideas during this pandemic because during this shutdown, lockdown, whatchamacallit, we are here together. Bored and hungry, so let's whip out easy to make - easier to eat snacks from whatever we have in the kitchen, shall we? Today's snack is Lumpia Mie or Noodle Spring Rolls. Let's start!

It has been brought to my attention that I haven't written any recipe in a while. I wished I could say it's because I have been busy saving the world. Alas, the real reason is sadly bereft of muscle, blue spandex, inside-out bright red panties with matching flying cape, and heroic actions.

Last week was the Chinese Spring Lantern Festival or in Indonesia we call it Cap Go Meh (Cap = ten, Go = Five, Meh = nights). This festival celebrates the fifteenth day of the first month in the Chinese calendar. It also marks the end of the traditional Chinese New Year celebrations.

Last week was the Superbowl Sunday and I had the whole appartement to myself. Usually, when I am left alone and have nobody around to impress, culinary or physically, I do stuff that is not considered as an appropriate material for this kind of blog. However, last Sunday was different. After a long break of serious cooking, I pulled myself together and decided to eat like a real human being. 

Banana, ooh na-na
All day I dream about banana, ooh na-na
So I made this bread of banana, na-na-na
Oh, but my home smells like banana (ay)
There nothin' wrong 'bout this matter (uh huh)
Banana, ooh na-na (uh)
