Lunch Box 567: Sushi or not


Back to the


Spam, not Spam When is sushi not sushi? When it's Spam musubi. Technically, the difference is that sushi rice is seasoned with vinegar, salt, and sugar - "sushi" (鮨) means "vinegared rice" - but I often get lazy and use unseasoned rice to make sushi. (Shh, don't tell anyone.) Anyway, here I have three pieces of Spam musubi and two pieces of unagi-zushi, the latter made with some of the recent batch of unagi no kabayaki. Then there's steamed snow peas, simmered shiitake mushrooms, spaghetti squash with a little container of yakisoba sauce, and a taro mochi.
