So somehow, I’ve been taking care of all my Hawaii children and we miss home greatly. So to combat this I ended up making spam musubis with them. So for those of you that don’t know, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. A spam musubi is rice that has been molded into a rectangle that the spam fits nicely on top and is wrapped up in a piece of nori (seaweed).
We used 2 TBSP of soy sauce (unfortunately it was low sodium), 2 TBSP sugar, and 1 TBSP water. At some point we threw the recipe to cook the spam out the window and just judged it by eye. We grew up on this food, we don’t need a recipe.
Something new that I tried was a sort of apple crisp called apple betty. Everyone loves my mom’s apple betty. It’s always one of the first things to go when there are a large amount of people it’s always the first to go. It was actually really easy. First I had to core the apples and with my new apple corer it was easy. But I had to slice those apples very thinly. As Holly put it, not exactly paper thin but knife thin. I put them into a bag with sugar and cinnamon and shook it up. I was so worried that it would come out wrong because she said to drizzle and I kind of packed it a little bit and I worried that I caked it. I also added a little bit of butter (channeling my inner Paula Deen) because it looked dry but it was fine. It actually turned out fine. I still have some I’m just being reluctant to share with other people. But I did. They loved it apparently it was good.
