Yum! Looks good, Fee.
As much for taste, the seaweed is a structural aid, and also so that the rice doesn't stick to and make a mess of your fingers. Another way for the same benefit is to grill the nigiri. I melt a pad of butter, mix with soy sauce, brush the rice balls, and broil briefly in the oven. It adds a little textural crunch to it, too.

I expected my very macho ex-husband to refuse to eat seaweed. But, he was Scottish and grew up near the ocean. He had eaten seaweed all the time he was growing up and thought it was normal veg. Colour me surprised.

Thanks for the chicken recipe, Spork. I'll definitely use it with thigh meat. I like thighs best anyway.

PF, the rice balls look great. I love nori. Maybe you will have to make little faces for Shrek's with nori. Ease him in to it with cuteness. <grins>

I'm out of my office tomorrow and am miffy that they are feeding us lunch. I wanted to pack my own again! I felt like I was in first grade again with my lunch today. It held up well and was pretty yummy. I'm already planning for next week.

Oh...here was a good resource that I found to help me plan!

My sister used to collect seaweed from beaches as a kid to make 'soup'. She hadn't a clue about things like dashi or the use of wakame in miso soups and the like at that time so I guess weird works both ways?

You could do the cute anime faces on the onigiri like Kathleen suggested,but depending on the person that could end in either "THAT'S SO CUTE! I'm going to eat that cute face off bwahahaha! " or "How am I supposed to eat something that looks like the decapitated smiley head of an anime character?"

Two of them were perfect for my lunch today. Next up is making some fillings. Mt co-worker who loves Asian thought they were perfect!

That site is my favorite reference, I've been reading it over and over. I'm going to try out making my own furikake. My wishlist at JBox is out of control.

We had an Onigiri fest at work today. Lunchtime was good and fun! Wish I could have seen you with your laptop bento!

Shrek doesn't like Anime, I will also not insist on him eating Nori...he doesn't make me eat things I don't like. So he gets non-seaweed sushi and onigiri...at least he's willing to try out some of it, as long as it's fish he recognizes and it's cooked.

I am getting a Hello Kitty Nori punch for mine! And a set of cute picks.
