Onigiri!

Poor blog. It’s been sorely neglected, as I’ve poured most of my energy into Claire’s Beauty lately.

Egg MoldI’ve been having fun with bento lately. We watch a lot of anime and it has inspired me to learn how to make onigiri (rice balls) and other cute bento lunch eatables. I’m very excited – today my onigiri and egg molds arrived. The onigiri mold makes perfect triangular shaped onigiri and the egg mold will shape a boiled egg into cute shapes. The ones I ordered (from a Japanese seller on eBay!) are rabbit and bear.

Usually onigiri are filled with things like umeboshi (a pickled plum), salmon, dried fish and soy sauce, or tuna and mayo. I like the salmon, and am learning to like umeboshi… but I thought it would be fun to experiment with some Western fillings as well. I tried little bits of smoked sausage, and that turned out well.

Next I want a tamagoyaki pan (tamagoyaki is a sort of omelette). I bought a sushi mat so I’m also going to learn how to make sushi rolls. I’m not sure I trust the freshness of the fish from the store, so I’m planning on sticking to smoked fish or veggies only.

This has been really fun!
