Food Yays and Food Nays

Food Yay: Insalata Caprese using basil leaves from my potted plant, the most flavorful tomatoes ever from a local farm (via the Community Supported Agriculture box), and fresh mozzarella from Trader Joe's. Such a refreshing and easy summer salad!

Food Nay: Spam Musubi. The stuff in the blue can is a Hawaii staple food, and feeling a bit nostalgic the other day, I bought Japanese sushi rice and tried my hand at Spam Musubi (a rectangle of tightly packed rice with a slab of spam fried in teriyaki sauce on top, all wrapped in seaweed... for those of you from the mainland, I know right? Nasty! But for those of you from Hawaii, sooo ono!). As far as Spam Musubi goes, it actually turned out pretty good, but after not eating much meat over the past month, spam was not a kind way to reenter the world of being a carnivore. I spent most of the time suppressing my gag reflex! I think that I am totally cured of spam curiosity.

(Noooooo! Don't do it Betty!!! Don't open the can of SPAM!!!)
