pretty leaves on the way back from the mailbox
onigiri rice balls made yesterday
Minerva wanted to eat them.. all the other dogs were interested in Mark's potato chips. He pointed out to me as I was forming them in my hands out of the rice pan that Minerva was pointed at me, and all the other dogs were pointed at him.
Brown rice, washed and cooked with a touch of rice wine vinegar in the water.
let cool just a little bit, then mix in sugar, more rice wine vinegar, and salt
let cool a little bit more
take large spoonfuls of rice and press them together with wet palms spread with salt back and forth until they form balls (rice is still kind of hot, some people use plastic molds for this), set down in container and place Nori or other seaweed strip on top, cover in white sesame seeds, place in refrigerator for eating later with wasabi and soy sauce and possibly red curry paste.
