Bistik komplit =- Racikan Selat

Di keluarga kami, hidangan ini kita sebut dengan ‘bistik komplit’. Di daerah Solo dulu sering dinamakan ‘racikan selat’ dan sekarang umum disebut ‘selat Solo’. Hidangan ini dulu sering muncul di pesta pernikahan atau ulang tahun. Setiap keluarga memiliki resep masing-masing. Dulu mama membuat bistik daging sapinya dengan memakai tomat yang diparut dan disaring, jadi kuahnya lebih mantap dan terasa asam manisnya.

Saving Dracaena – Rooting in Water Attempt

6 Comments

Few years ago I cut our tall Dracaena (corn plant) into three parts and replanted them in potting soil. They grew quite well.  Later on, I gave one (the top cutting) to a friend. Yesterday she gave me back the plant because it was not growing very well. The leaves were wilted and the cane looked crinkle.

Dracaena - Wilted dehydrated - March 08-2018

Unhappy Dracaena, leaves are wilted.

Today, after I thoroughly watered the unhappy plant, I took it out of the pot to check the root system. I found that the roots were very dry and after being watered well, the soil mix was still dry. It seemed to me that the soil mix repelled water. Why this happened? Perhaps my friend left it dry quite a while. Very dry potting mix can become water repellent, in which the water cannot penetrate all the soil and just runs out of the pot holes.  To continue

Anggrek Miltassia Shelob ‘Tolkien’:

Tepat setahun kemudian, anggrek hibrida jenis Miltassia ini berbunga kembali. Bentuknya seperti laba-laba dengan corak dan kombinasi warna yang aneh. Anggrek yang cukup mudah pemeliharaannya ini, diberi nama berdasarkan karakter laba-laba bernama Shelob didalam film The Lord of The Rings. Sedangkan Tolkien adalah nama penulis buku The Two Towers yang dibuat film The Lord of The Rings.

Jasmine - delightful fragrance.jpg

Arabian Jasmine (Jasminum sambac, Melati):

At the moment, the Arabian Jasmine that is grown in a pot has many flowers. I think the temperate climate of Melbourne has made the flower size kind of smaller, but the fragrance is still the same, delightfully sweet. I picked a handful and now during the night, the amazing smell fills our living room.  To read more

Sudah dua kali kamera Panasonic Lumix FH1 yang saya punya menghasilkan foto yang ada penampakan orb (lingkaran) warna biru. Aneh memang, lingkaran bulat ini tak kasat mata, tapi timbul di foto. Lingkaran bulat warna biru ini tampak begitu nyata.
