The little man was asked by his aunt what his favorite food is. He replied "putow". I did not even expect him to say it because even if he has been eating puto or steamed rice cake lately, it is far from his favorite. Or so I thought. He proved me wrong. He can eat 4-5 little rice cakes at a time that I have to make sure I already got mine and the little girl's share (I only make about a dozen at a time) before I call him to eat. Lol. It might be the cheese that I put on top of the mini-cake that draws him to it. Or it could be the rice flavor. I do not honestly know. I am happy though that he is finally trying to eat the food I like. I hope that this is the start of his foray into Filipino food. I am not holding my breath with him liking fried dried fish (it will really mean a lot if he does) but I will be happy if he eats or even tries every little dish or dessert I make without me threatening him with his life. That last part is of course pure exaggeration :) So, here is a picture of the "putow" he loves so much (for now anyway).
