I am really really tired of this cold weather and cannot wait for Spring to come. When counting my blessings in this kinda winter, I count twice the fact that hubby didn't choose a university in Montana for grad school. He got accepted there and luckily he picked Tennessee, otherwise I would hibernate for half a year during cold season.
In this kind of weather, there are several Indonesian soup I wish I could get in my town. Surprisingly, in my tropical country, there are a lot of traditional food that are perfect for freezing weather. Indonesian eat hot soup and hot beverage all year round in a 80-90ish F weather!
One food that I had a craving for was bakso (beef meatball soup). Meatball soup is sold by street vendors back home. Some go around the neighborhood so we could call them and they would come to our house. Finding food is so easy back home as we could just wait for the dinner to come to our doorstep. Anyway, one cold evening, I gather my energy to make one. Since I knew it would create a lot of mess, I made in a large quantity then freeze some of the balls for later. Mine's missing a lot of things, such as vermicelli, fried dumpling, fried meatball, and fried tofu. Nonetheless my sweet hubby said it was really good. Of course in cold weather, any hot soup would taste good
