Food Friday (Merry Christmas!)

17 shared thoughts
Note: Since most (if not all) of us might be busy during this week (hey, Christmas Day is going to be this coming Sunday!!!), I've decided to open Food Friday two days earlier than the usual day. It will end Monday, as usual, though. Next week linky will be up early, too (and that's because next Sunday is going to be New Year's Day!). ^_^

Merry Christmas, everyone! <3

This week's Featured in Food Friday player is....

Ms. Jenn, who owns the blog Tara, Let's Eat with her post:
Recipe: Diced Chicken with Cashews

I believe that the first thing you should do if you want to stay and keep fit is to change your eating habits; not all at once, but to do it  in one manageable step at a time. Ms. Jenn has been doing that for the past few months and so far she's doing a very fine job! Her food posts reflects how she has been managing her food choices and how it's working for her. If you want to know more, or send some encouraging words her way, then do drop by her blog.

My post for this week is Puto (Steamed Rice Cake). I wanted to do something that would involve my three-year old and this was just perfect!

Puto ... one of our fave snacks!

Ingredients used:
  • a box of puto mix (i used the 200g box)
  • muscovado sugar
  • cheese, water

What we did:
  • I let my youngest son help me with this...all we did was follow the simple instructions written on the box. Just a matter of mixing, measuring, and pouring (not necessarily in that order, lol)!
  • Then steaming.
  • Everything was done in less than an hour! :)

I wasn't sure if my sons and I would love the premix...but we did! It was a bit dense (maybe because my rice cakes were huge! lol), but we liked it! I wonder how it would taste if I used honey instead of muscovado sugar... ^_^
I know, next time maybe I should try making it from xD
Ms. Oggi does have a very promising puto recipe... :)

Reminder: Please link back here (you may use the Food Friday buttons located on the right sidebar, or a simple text) if you're playing... and don't forget to visit other players as well and leave them some comment love! thank you.♥

Thanks so much for featuring my Diced Chicken with Cashews! :) *Happy Dance*

Ahhh... may puto mix na pala. Dati kasi some people use the hotcake mix. If you try the one with honey, do tell me the difference, ha? Para ma-try din using honey instead of regular sugar.

Aw that chicken with cashew is mouthwatering.

It's my first time to have heard of Food Friday. I'm here for EXCOM and I apologize for the late visit.

Your puto would make a perfect meryenda right after simbang gabi paired with either hot chocolate or coffee.

I'll have to add FF for my list of weekly meme. Hope I can join next week. :D

Thanks for the opportunity to link up, Maiylah! I'd like to make Puto sometime :) Perhaps for New Year's celebration.
