Flavoured Rice Roll in Bacon

Friday, October 2, 2009



Yum yum, cutie rice ball wrapped in bacon. I was alone at home few days ago and this is the  lunch that i’ve made. I had wanted to try making this for quite a while, but fearing that i might have to send them into the rubbish bin if they turn out terrible and risk losing face; and get a scolding from my family for wasting food too! I can hardly find the opportunity to try them out. Alas! It’s a sad thing when a gal had to resort to doing sneaky things behind her own family backs for a meal.

I realised that i’ve made too much when i produced 7 little rice roll from 200 g of cooked white rice. Well, that’s the problem when preparing a meal for just one person, it’s always difficult to estimate the quantity, especially when trying a new recipe.

 Kowning that i won’t be able to finish them all, i keep 4 for my own consumption and packed the rest into an air-tight container to store in the fridge. I figure little brother will eat them when he got home late at night.

I thought right, he does eat them and is eager to have me made them again, so that he can eat more, of course. Well, i guess 3 is a bit too little for him.
