Recently, I made two Hawaiian themed bentos to contribute to a Japanese book printed in Japan. The book is about Hawai`i and its culture, and is written by Sachiko Uchida Ka’aihue of J-wave, who is also the host of OC 16′s DokoGa TV. The first bento is a surfer boy against a wave made of rice with the Hawaiian sun shining down upon him. The bento also contains Kalua pork, a few fruits and veggies, and a side of lomi lomi salmon.
The second bento is a hula girl onigiri adorned with a haku lei. The bento also contains Portuguese sausage and Spam, both of which are Hawaiian staples! Hope you like them.
Let me premise this post by saying that I cannot roll sushi to save my life. So if I am able to make this very simple bunny maki sushi then so can you! Unfortunately in the midst of trying to make the bunny maki I forgot to take pictures so I will save that for a later post. With luck, I should be able to get those pictures up by tomorrow. The bunny maki is made with hotdogs for the head and SPAM for the ears. I also used a little bit of fish sausage for their noses.
Paige stayed home from school today with a fever and cough. It seems that something has been going around her classmates, so I guess it was just a matter of time before she got sick too. Hope everyone is doing well and keeping healthy!
