Cool, I probably should have known that... name sounds familiar but my memory is shot so...



Always reminds me of Fruits Basket; Honda-san was "Rice Ball" ... at least that was the translation I read; I'll have to dig it out and re-read it!



I make rice that way all the time... but I never added the seaweed (can't buy it in Tesco!). I usually make the triangle shape - KW may remember from a couple of weeks ago ^__^



Notice the very last word on that site is:



"lunch"



=^.^=

I have put things in, but you just can't get the right things without going to a specialist shop... although some stuff you can get mail-order, dried and shrink-wrapped !!!
