I Made Onigiri! And Rice! SHOKKU!

I got onigiri directions from this site and the recipe for the marinade for the salmon from here, and decided to just give it a shot!

First of all, cooking rice for real? Is a huge fucking production. There's like rinsing and waiting and turning heat up and down, and oh god are we buying a rice cooker tomorrow, cause I ain't never doing that shit ever again.

But this does explain why up until now i have never, ever made successful rice.

after you smoosh the rice against your palm, you make a big dent or curl your hand so that you have a notch for the stuff to sit in. there's kind of a fine line between not enough filling and way too much, though.

Then you stick some more rice on top and smoosh it more! This was so my favorite part, because i am all about touching the food. my mom is like "STOP TOUCHING THE MEATLOAF SO MUCH" and i am like "nooooo i wanna squish it with my fingerssssss" and that is what onigiri is all about.

I so figured this out in like a try and a half. Finally! Something my pudgy little hands are perfect at! Squishing triangular balls of rice!

Just like mom used to make...i mean, like you bought it in the combini...

In conclusion: SO. GOOD. the salmon thing was totally awesome on its own, and in the rice balls with the crunchy nori, i really couldn't have done any better *PROUD*
