Bianca started becoming a picky eater and I have to think hard of what to prepare so that she would eat. It is hard to guess of what she likes. At one time she would take every thing with broth and soupy, but she refused it at other time and preferred "dry" meal like steam rice with shredded dried beef meat (Indonesian-abon sapi). Sometimes she likes Indonesian foods with sweet soy sauce (she must take it after her dad), other times she likes just potato with cheese-whiz (hm...it's really me style). So I just prepare something that is not spicy for her or if I cooked something for the entire family, I would take some portion and keep it aside for her before adding chili. This meal was prepared for her. It is supposed to be spicy, but I omitted the chili. Thank God, she loves it!
