Palitaw 365/290

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.

Your palitaw looks good. Great that your folks liked it. I am praying for the miraculous and divine healing of your brother in law. Nothing is impossible with God for those who believe. By the stripes of Jesus he is healed. Amen. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
