The Rice Ball

Lately, we've been watching Fruits Basket, an anime series that we all love. There is reference to the main character being an onigiri, a rice ball. It had been a while since we had made any, so we decided we'd all give it a try. In the past, Norby had really been the only one to have much success. Well, this time, Annie made one she deemed perfect. And being Annie, she wanted to save it. Unfortunately, she saved it a bit too long and it turned rancid. If you know Annie, you know she was in tears at losing her favorite onigiri ever and even though it was rancid and stinky, she did not want to part with it. Instead of keeping it, I took a picture so she could always remember it. She makes me smile.
