Palitaw is a Filipino dessert that is made of glutinous rice or in our local place, they used the pounded sweet rice. I was craving it the other day so I tried to make some (my first time). I have dried coconut in the fridge and some sesame seeds so I roasted them together as topping for the palitaw. The word palitaw means to surface. When you mix the flour into water, you form it into small balls and flatten it then drop it in a boiling water, when it floats, that's the indication that it's cooked. My daughter loved it!
- The construction team is on its last step of completing our porch, wohooo finally!
- I have to pick up my daughter in school.
Will update this post later. My BIL Dave went to the cancer hospital today to see if they can still do something for him bu it is too late. The doctor said that the kind of cancer he has, is embedded in the body cells that no matter what you do, you're still going to die. We are all overwhelmed with the revelation because the three months that the former doctor gave him is now shortened to one to three weeks. His skin is already yellow because of jaundice which is an indication that his kidney is shutting down. My BIL Rick was crying when he told John about the news as he was the one who drove Dave to the hospital. The feeling that I had when I found out that my brother died is back.
- I did not go with my husband and daughter at a dance school, I felt sick upon knowing the news about my BIL Dave. Mr. Burrito is here with me.
- I prepared some chicken legs, pepper rings, and salad for dinner. Hubby made cinnamon rolls for dessert.
