Anko Yukk!

by on February 5, 2011

Our friend, Peggy was nice enough to bring some Manju when she came to sit with Satomi yesterday.

For those that don’t know, it’s a traditional Japanese confectionary that typically stuffed with sweetened beans of various types.  It is quite popular.  Here’s a picture of a typical box.

Unfortunately, Satomi HATES azuki (black) beans and well, just about every other sort of bean out there.  Except for maybe edamame (soy beans). So I dug throught the box and found one filled with a white bean of some sort.

Anyway, I decided to give her a small piece this morning just as a treat and a small change from the normal routine.  

I was feeding her, alternating spoonfuls of miso soup, brown rice, some Korean seafood salad, juice, soup, rice, salad, and then I swapped in a bite of the manju….

“Anko Yukk!”   

Eating quickly stopped and drinking water started.  There’s no getting anything past her.

It was hilarious.
