How do you profess your love to your mom when she is more than 8,000 miles away?
It's mother's day where she is right now, (as the Philippines is 12 hours ahead of St. Louis). So I remembered this photo I took during my last trip. A photo of her reading the newspaper while she relaxes in a hammock at the farm - a candid yet poignant photo. That's her, in all her simplicity...
To my Mama, Happy Mother's Day! I know our love transcends time and distance, you are here in my heart forevermore.
Deko Fondue (Biko con Tsokalate;Rice Cake Fondue)
2 cups sweet rice,
1/2 can coconut milk
3 cups water
1/4 tsp salt
2 cans coconut milk
3/4 c brown sugar (you could add more if you want it sweeter)
Cook sweet rice by filling up a stockpot with coconut milk and water. Pour the rice and cook for about 20 minutes or until the rice is fully cooked. Set aside.
Press on a pan. Sprinkle the coconut crumbs. Let it cool. Slice into squares when served.
I have posted a Tsokolate-eh here before. You could add more chocolate balls or tablea to make a thicker chocolate dip. Enjoy!
Happy Mother's day to all the moms out there. Special shout out to my mother in law, Mama Bernie for being there for me and my husband through all these years... We love you Mama B!
