The onigiri I made for the Thanksgiving potlatch look pretty impressive... but as for how they taste...who can say (a tad too much vinegar in the rice perhaps). The small ones are plain rice balls, and the bigger ones have tuna mixed with bonito flakes and soup base as filling, and with a sprinkle of bonito flakes on top. Getting the nori and the bonito flakes was a hellish experience, as the Chinese and Vietnamese grocery stores were packed on the day before Thanksgiving. It was a real test on my non-existent agression to shove my way through the throngs of people in the aisles and the check-out lines, not to mention trying to squeeze pass the sidelong shopping carts.

Ah, and I made another onigiri as a x-mas present for Angelica, this time out of felt and stuffing.
