Have you ever tried the Yaki Onigiri baked rice snacks from Trader Joe’s? Ohhhhhhhhhh man they are so good. They’re little steamed-rice triangles with some kind of lip-smackin' outer flavoring. You'll find them in the frozen food section, and can heat up one or the whole tray in the microwave in a jiffy.
I try to sneak them all the time and ALWAYS get caught. Always. Here I popped a few in the microwave (for ME) and then tried to take a quick snap of the girls while they were eating Cheerios. (Ro in green, Ree in pink)
Hey mama, what’s that we smell? It must be better than this lame bag of Cheerios you gave us…
Come on, what is it?
Oooooo, did you make something special for us?:
Yay, you made us some onigiri!! (Um, no, I didn’t, these were supposed to be for me, but that really didn’t stop the little onigiri-stealers. Notice that they grabbed them right out of the microwave and Ree had to blow on hers to even be able to hold it.):
Mmmmmmmm… (Hm, I didn’t notice that purple spot above Ree’s eye until now, guess I’ll go check to see if it’s paint or a bruise):
Silly mama, why do you even try to make some of these for yourself?:
Shame on you. Trying to make us eat Cheerios. Bah!:
Your snack sure was good mama:
Oh socks! (that’s what they say now) You weren’t kidding when you said this bag was empty:
Dear mama, please buy more of these right now. We only have one bag left, which is really only enough for Ree and I:
PS: Using Windows Live Writer again to do this post, and it is SO easy and fast. I think I might love it as much as these Yaki Onigiri snacks! Seriously, if you're using Flickr/Blogger, you mustmustmust try this app out. It's free, and you just choose your picture characteristics the first time and set them as your default (I chose 500 width, no linking, slight shadow border) and then when you write any blog post in WLW, you just point it at the pictures you want and it takes care of everything. One click (ONE!) and all of the pics show up in your post in the right order. Shoot, with this app I might even start posting more. Heh heh.
PPS: If anyone has a recipe for this Yaki Onigiri stuff, please share, because I think we’re addicted…
