for Spam musubi! Without
it, how would you know that the trains were so fouled
up that I got home an hour later than usual and was
starved and in no mood for fancy cooking? Most of the
other foods were made as fast. Certainly the baked Purple
potato (hi, Laurie!) took little
time - three minutes in the microwave - and the steamed
broccoli came right out of a leftovers container.
In among the spam and spud are some "Dan-D-Pak
Sushi Rolls," an item I bought because of
its sheer silliness. You know those sticklike rice crackers,
the ones with the pretzel-like crunch and the nori wrapping?
Now imagine a hollow version that you can stick sushi
fillings into. So I did just that with little bitty
bits of crab sticks, and amazingly enough it tastes
just like a rice cracker with a tiny bit of crab
stick through it!!
After I ate dinner I was feeling a little more patient,
and in honor of the first day of Spring (well, part
of the day; Spring officially begins sometime
this evening) I made sakura mochi.
This is the easiest recipe I've found, and is basically
anko wrapped in a mochiko crepe. I don't have a cherry
tree to sit under as I eat this, but I do have a picture
of a dogwood on my wall.
