- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Putting Rice to Bed -- A Bed of Rice in a Seaweed Wrap
This comes to no surprise as we all know that I love -- absolutely love -- rice, rice and more rice.
That, on top -- literally -- of seaweed and you know I've lost all sense of reasoning and have found myself trapped in the allure gaze of a bed of naked rice, staring back at me from a bowl with nothing else included.
On this particular night, I wanted something simple, easy and light.
I set a container of jasmine rice to cook with a smattering of rice vinegar and salt.
The salt addition, no matter how light, turned out to be a mistake. The rice cooker took about 20 minutes to make one cook.
Meanwhile, I set out a sheet of nori.
Really, I should have only used half of one sheet. The full sheet turned out not only to be too much, but it was a pain to try and fold it.
Another error: Adding the salt to the rice as it was cooking.
The Noritamago Furikake Rice Seasoning turned out have enough salt to pickle a jar of cucumbers. Unnecessary for this dish. Ah, well. Informed for next time.
I added a dash of ponzu before folding the nori over the rice. It required some sort of protein. Barbecue pork or raw salmon would have been wonderful. But, no matter, it was a nice, quick and easy meal -- yes, this was enough for a meal!
So, this is something like onigiri, though it is more like samgak kimbap, a type of Korean appetizer or snack. Perhaps a more glutenous rice would have been more appropriate than the jasmine rice. This just means that I will be experimenting at full hilt once I am able to try this out again.
