[TGIF] Avocado Juice & Chocolate Bagelen
I enjoy every single minute while doing all the activities during that day; waking up in the morning, preparing breakfast and lunch box, driving to drop my children off to their school, enjoying my 2100m long swimming, ... and all other activities before welcoming the weekend. I always try to arrive home before late afternoon, and stay away from the famous 'Jakarta Friday Night Traffic'.
The other thing that very enjoyable is my children finishing their school 1.5 hour earlier than the previous four school days. Normally, after picking them up from school, we start to make some plans ... what can we do together on Friday afternoon and during the weekend. The ideas just come out without too much thinking. Sometimes back at home we decide to bake something, or buying ice creams at the shop near by our home and enjoy it together in our backyard, or we do grocery shopping together (they love to do this one), or we stop by in a mall just to enjoy our favorite frozen yogurt... We've never run out of idea for the Friday afternoon activities :)
So last week... I decided to start recording some of our activities on Friday afternoon.
That time we went straight home from school. No plan, what to do at home. As usual, when we arrived home, my son went straight to his favorite activity; playing soccer in our backyard.
I went to the kitchen and found out that the avocados I bought a day before were ready to be enjoyed. We never do other things to avocado, ...the delicious avocado 'creamy' juice is the best choice. Very easy to make and we love it so much. We just blend the avocado meat and mix it with condense milk, a little bit sugar, cocoa powder and lots of ice cubes. We always love to serve it with some chocolate sauce.
For snack... we enjoyed the avocado juice with chocolate bagelen.
Bagelen is (dry) toast with sweet cream on top. Normally the cream that contains mixture of butter and icing sugar is spread on the bread before they are toasted. The result is a crunchy delicious toast.
Our chocolate bagelen wasn't homemade snack... my brother brought it from Bandung, after he spent his vacation there. Yup, bagelen is a popular snack from Bandung. Some of famous bakeries in Bandung claim their bagelen as the best one! Ours was from Bawean Bakery (a.k.a the famous SweetHeart Bakery).
... hey... welcome Weekend!
