Food... it has been so long I am afraid to eat now. I think I had better start with some very light food again ... I'm still not hungry.

I am a fan of spinch :) Cooked or raw ... fine with me.

Started out with Ramon noodles ... that went ok. I ate a small burrito covered with graded cheese ... think I will try some real food now.

Frickin' love spinach. Will eat it with cheese on toast just because... though I am a lazy cook, if I could even be classed as one.

And I DID remember to take a picture of the onigiri I made, however... I forgot that my phone has a rather shit camera, the lighting was poor... and people kept trying to eat them as I was sailing round the room with the plate trying to get some decent lighting. Next time, however! Promise. Though it is nice to know that they were edible and nommy.

Your picture hit me right in the face with its tastiness. What is it? Looks like little rice dough dumplings with coconut... stuff (however you call it in English)

It's tapioca balls/dumplings with palm sugar filling. I don't know what's it called in English. I call it coconut shavings.

Please do so! I'm afraid it's going to be hard to find all the ingredients, but one can always improvise.

8-10 pandan (screwpine) leaves, cut into 3cm lengths
200g glutinous rice flour (or tapioca flour, if you can find any), sifted
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup boiling hot water
A few drops green colouring (if desired)
1/2 grated coconut, mixed with a pinch of salt
Filling (combine):
100g gula melaka (palm sugar) (crush it into small pieces so that it melts evenly. I hate it when it doesn't melt fully.)
1 tbsp soft brown sugar

Put pandan leaves and a little water in a liquidiser. Blend into a coarse pulp. Strain using a sieve to obtain two tablespoons of thick juice. Set the juice aside.

Put sifted glutinous rice flour and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Pour in boiling hot water and pandan juice. Stir well to form a smooth dough. If dough is too stiff, add a little water; if it is too wet, add a little glutinous flour.

Divide dough into small pieces and form lime-size balls. Flatten each piece, put half a teaspoon of filling in the centre and roll again(cover the filling fully with dough) into balls.

Drop the ball into boiling water. When the balls are cooked they will float. Scoop up the balls with a perforated ladle and toss in grated coconut.

Ps. Eat it after at least 5 minutes of cooling or you'll burn your mouth and throat. Unless you like the heat, that is...

Guess I know what to look for the next time I'm in an Asia shop, but pandan leaves might be hard to come by. Are pandan leaves sold in jars or maybe cans as well?

Uhh... No? I don't think so?

The pandan leaves I grow in my garden are as long as my arm per piece.

But I do think that artificial pandan flavorings are available at confectionary shops.

Shredded would be how I would say it ... but I am from Ohio.

Looks good Luna.

I have been eating a lot of French toast lately ... I seem to get on these kicks. It is fast and easy to cook.

Also been eating a lot of hash browns with an egg and melted cheese on top.

At least I am starting to eat regular again.

A roast perhaps, easy to make and the sides to some degree cooks along with it. Rice or mashed potatoes could compliment it, and maybe a nice salad. None of this is hard, makes it easy on the cook.
