On Wednesdays every week, I go along to a mothers group. It’s not a ‘community’ mothers group (which they harass you into joining when you give birth); it’s just six of us friends, who so happen to have had babies a couple of months apart. Yep, we totally planned it that way. Going to mothers group is a reprieve from the constant rocking, playing, shushing and repeat that we do at home all day every day. It’s a chance for us to get together and share in the joys (and woes) of motherhood and basically… eat a lot of sugar.
Last week, I made mango sticky rice to bring along. Everyone seemed really impress that I’d made something (because none of us have time to bake – except for the lovely Ange who made chocolate spiders which is so simple and delicious) but I suspect they were only impressed because they don’t know how ridiculously easy it is to make mango sticky rice. I mean, all you gotta do is steam the rice! Or, if you have a fandangle rice cooker that can do glutinous rice, life’s even sweeter.
|Mango sticky rice|
300grams glutinous rice
140-150ml coconut cream
