Onigiri

For my birthday, I decided that I was going to make onigiri for lunch. I thought that, it would be a piece of cake, how hard can it be? Rolling some sushi rice into a ball shape and then slapping on some seaweed. Boy! Was I ever so wrong? My kitchen is a mess, it's hillarious! Aisshhhhh! At least, I can laugh at myself, I am such a clown!

It was damn hard, okay... I got rice in between my fingers, in my hair, on the floor, in the sink, even the furkid was helping me by eating the rice that had fallen to the floor. What a good puppy!

To my Japanese and non Japanese foodies that do this everyday...my RESPECT to you on these tasks.

So I committed the great foodie sin (cheat) of compacting everything into a Chinese rice bowl and turned it upside down on a plate! True story!

Until then, must keep saving... OMG!!! Leave me some sake guys, don't drink it all!!
