Corner view / staple foods







This week the corner view is staple foods.

I can't live without rice.... Onigiri (rice ball) is one of my favorite Japanese food! I usually put salmon flakes or a little pickled plum inside and wrap seaweed around onigiri. It is great for picnics or a simple snack!

Bon Appetit!

Miam,
moi aussi, je ne pourrais vivre sans riz.
j'adore ça mais c'est aussi parce que je ne tolère pas le blé, donc beaucoup de riz.
C'est comme un médicament pour moi.
Les vrais bons sushis ; j'adore.
je pense que le régime asiatique m'irait très bien.
Comme d'habitude, j'aime tes photos commentées.
Bonne nuit.

I love onigiri.
I know brown rice is better for you, but oh- how I love white rice.
I also like my onigiri with umeboshi plum!
I prefer bonito flakes to salmon flakes...which reminds me of agadashi tofu...mmmm.
