My 4-year-old and 6-year-old started to get frustrated when they made mistake. So last week, I bought them a book called “Beautiful Oops”. It is supposed to teach the kids that it’s okay to make mistakes too.
Today, I found the book on the floor.
Me: Who didn’t put the book back on the shelf?
Kiddos: OOOOOOPS… but it’s okay, mom!
(Agrrrrrr… that’s not the point!!!!)
Thai Sweet Sticky Rice and Fresh Mangoes
(Adapted from Food and Wine)
1 cup sweet rice (soaked in warm water for at least 1 hour)
1 can 5.5 oz coconut milk
1 tsp kosher salt
3 tbs sugar
2 ripe champagne mangos (peeled, pitted, and coarsely chopped)
1 tbs toasted sesame seeds
- In a microwave-safe bowl, cover the rice with just enough water, cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Microwave the rice on high power for 4 minutes. Use a folk to stir the rice, re-cover the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave for another minute.
- In a small saucepan, combine the coconut milk with salt and sugar, and bring to a simmer.
- Before serving, pour the coconut milk over the rice, folding until just combined.
- Spoon the rice into a plate, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve with fresh mangoes.
