Toronto, Day 8

Dora got up today at 8:30, but lay down to rest again at around 11:00. Nice sunny day, cool, squirrels scampering along the telephone wires and rooftops, robins, cardinals, crows, and sparrows feeding on the lawn. Reyna is here today.

Winston arrived a few minutes later with a big cardboard box filled with 100 suman, delicious sticky rice, cooked with coconut milk and brown (or palm) sugar, wrapped in banana or palm leaves (buy frozen, oil the leaves so rice does not stick), and steamed. I am taking 60 home with me to New York. We froze a few dozen and saved the rest to eat today. I will serve them to guests this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Just defrost and steam them and they are as delicious as ever. There are so many ways Filipinos prepare sticky rice.
