A new obsession

I may or may not have picked up a new obsession while wandering around the middle of the Pacific Ocean.  No, it's not snorkeling or surfing.  It's not even worshiping the sun god, which we did every morning and every evening on a different beach.  It's spam musubi.


You guys, this stuff is the B-O-M-B.  Spam, seaweed and rice.  So simple yet SO delicious.  It's pretty much all I ate the last few days I was in Maui.  Now I'm craving it like mad.  Luckily there's an L&L in town and you can bet your bottom that I'll be hitting it up this weekend.  I may even get ambitious enough to make it on my own.  What about you?  Any kooky obsessions lately my friends?

  1. The simple foods are actually the best kind of foods and now I really want to try this. Like it's past midnight, I'm looking for a snack and came across this post kind of wanting to try it. Also, food related, I've been enjoying the combination of baby spinach and tomatoes in almost all my dinners this week. Hope you have a good Friday! xx

  2. cravings - yes. unfortunately unfulfilled ones. milk, and leafy salads with tons of vinegar, and olives. all not that easy to get in Asia... :)

  4. I've heard that Hawaiians love their spam and I totally get it. I don't east it as much now, but as a kid I was a fiend for that stuff. That sandwich looks awesome!

  5. Poor Spam, so misunderstood (Meghan's comment)! Sounds like the good folks in Hawaii have figured out its value. Now if I can just bring myself to try it. lol Please let me know if you find a good recipe for musubi (are those sesame seeds in the picture???).


    No kooky obsessions lately, but I am trying to use graham crackers as a replacement for things I might crave in the afternoons--like chocolate or Jelly Bellys. They're just as good (I keep telling myself). :)

  6. That looks so delicious! My Grandmother used to make me spam sandwiches when I was little - I haven't had it in years! You're showing your British a bit here, Rooth!

  7. I can not criticize your love of Spam. My dad used to make a dinner of Spam with a brown sugar glaze, macaroni and cheese and great northern beans for dinner on weeknights. Those were good nights.

  8. Spam? Like, spam spam? Interesting. I'll take your word for it! I've never tried it. But you can pretty much pair anything with seaweed and rice and I'll gobble it right up!

  13. It looks like a small rice bomb! You know that Spam sushi is the only thing I will ever consider eating that would break my vegetarianism? And that is only because I find it hilarious. I'm glad you love it!!
