No, I Can't Get It Out of My Head

This is what I'm thinking about right now:

  • A porterhouse steak, medium rare with a perfectly seared crust on the outside
  • A California burrito from Roberto's
  • Two scoops of Rocky Road ice cream
  • My old favorite sandwich from Rinaldi's: pastrami, melted mozzarella, mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and pepperoncini on a freshly baked soft roll
  • Falafel
  • A steaming bowl of kakuni ramen from Tajima
  • A Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, with barbecue pork filling
  • Sesame balls
  • Chashu bao
  • Spam musubi
  • Funnel cake
  • Pretty much every cholesterol-laden food that I'm not supposed to be eating.

I had plans to write something insightful tonight, but clearly that's out the window.


Your Ma:

Spam? Really? And what is musubi?

Leslie sent pix of Jason opening gifts. I love his little tennis shoes (or trainers or whatever they are called). He's looking so grown up.

Mike Sakasegawa:

The words "Spam musubi" in the article are a link. Click on it to see the wikipedia article describing it. Basically it's a Hawaiian version of makizushi, but with Spam instead of fish and eaten whole instead of cut into slices. And, what's wrong with Spam? Asians are supposed to like Spam.
