Yeah, I love rice balls too, but they ALWAYS turn out as piles of mushed up rice and filling with soggy nori when I try to make them at home.
(And wow, that really does look like it took a ton of work to pretty up.)

My problem wasn't even mushy rice, but hot damn, what DOESN'T that stuff stick to?!

Yeah, it is sticky. When I made sushi at home I was told that some rice vinegar on your hands would keep it from sticking to you so much. But my nori always fell apart soon after being made. I could never get them to not crumble apart if I waited more than ten minutes to eat them. (Eventually if I felt like a Japanese lunch, I just cooked jasmine rice and added some fish and sliced egg and nori layered in. The non-assembled rice ball version.)

I went to a bento-box-making panel at the last convention, and the woman speaking was saying you could just put water on your hands and it wouldn't stick so badly. MY ASS. I'm just hoping it comes with practice XD

She might have meant water with vinegar. It usually worked pretty well for me.

Not banana BREAD but banana cake:

SO good. I made it for my dogs birthday last year with all dog-safe ingredients ^_^ He's turning two on the 5th and I'm considering making it again. Four whole layers of I-love-my-dog-too-much and frosted with a-little-bit-crazy.

I respectfully submit that this is the best ever banana cake.

I have come to the point in my day where I am super duper hungry but realize there's little to make outside of frozen chicken strips. I guess i could make home made french fries to go with it tho. Mmm fries.

Let's see how that shit turns out.

Welp. No potatoes. I made some shitty fried rice I didn't eat. So then I had the rest of the frozen chicken strips.

Oh well.

I'm making a beef casserole tonight.

The recipe calls for red wine, but...I don't have any so I'm going to use my mead.
