spam musubi

One of my favorite ways to eat spam is in spam musubi; a Hawaiian dish which is basically a block of gorgeously fried spam pressed on or in between rice and then wrapped with a strip of seaweed. No, I do not know what spam is – and I do not want to know because this treat is wayyy too delicious to give up! Feel free to add additional ingredients to customize your musubi. As you can see in the picture below, I’ve added some eggs into the mix, along with a sprinkling of Bubu Arare (Rice Crackers) for crunch and a line of Kewpie Mayonnaise because I can, because I wanted to, but mainly because it just takes the musubi to a whole another level!

Ingredients:

  • sushi rice
  • spam
  • seaweed
  • scrambled egg (optional)
  • bubu arare (optional)
  • kewpie mayo (optional)

Directions:

  1. First you make a batch of sushi rice following this sushi rice recipe.
  2. While the rice is cooking up, remove the block of spam from the container (this might require a ton of banging) and then cut them into 1/4 inch slabs. Fry these slices of spam in a flat stovetop pan until they are seared and crispy on both sides.
  3. When both the spam and the rice are ready, scoop enough rice to cover half of the seaweed (or all of it!) and place the spam on top of the rice. Layer on any additional optional toppings you desire.
  4. To finish, roll the spam in a similar fashion as you would following these sushi rolling tips and seal with rice. Easy and yummy!

easy toast breakfast

The thing that I love about toast for breakfast is that it’s so easy to make in the mornings and hardly takes any effort to jazz up with toppings! There is no one way to make toast and you can put anything, really ANYTHING, you want on them.

For the above, I used vanilla Greek yogurt and peanut butter with flax & chia seeds for the spread and topped them with tiger figs, yellow nectarines, and bananas.

chicken parmesan

For me, Chicken Parmesan reads filling and comforting, especially when topped off with a good dose of melted mozzarella and parmesan cheese! I use store-bought tomato marinara basil sauce from Trader Joe’s and make it chunkier by adding in diced onions and tomatoes.

slow cooker beef, potato & onion curry

The slow cooker is the perfect appliance for making low-effort weeknight dinners, and when I say low-effort, I really mean low effort! This recipe will not be asking you to make the curry from scratch – instead, we will be using the S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix. The end result is pretty tasty from day 1, but is even yummier on day 2!
