Check the craft store for paper punches. There will be some smileys. Use it on nori paper to decorate or write messages in the bento box. If you see a kid eat a rice ball first by plucking out its smiley eyeballs, call the Principal. Hopefully, it'll just be a note of concern.

Good idea...I wonder if they have any anime paper punches.

The science is still out, I think it's probably bunk, but seaweed is said to contain a pigment that burns fat the way bears do while hibernating.

It looks like I will be increasing my seaweed intake...just to see, of course!

I really do love the nori, we will find out this weekend about the Kombu. I'm going to make some Dashi.

I can handle nori when I'm in the mood for sushi maki and the like, but can't stand wakame (I always have my miso without wakame pieces). Unfortunately I don't live in the best area for Asian foodstores outside of Indian grocery stores, so Kombu and bonito flakes are out - I usually make my dashi with shiitake mushrooms and some other things. Works quite well!

That boy shouldn't have tried to swipe her Clementine! Glad she decked him.

I'll have to head to Spokane (Seattle) or Denver for a good selection. Dad offered to take me to the Oriental store in Denver the next time I visit. Luckily, my little Whole Foods knock off store has a little of most things.

I haven't tried wakame, yet. I'll be making Dashi with kombu this weekend. If not, I'll switch to shitake.

I misread shitake.
