So, I've been on this quest to make miso soup. It is a difficult task since the nearest Asian market is about 50 miles away. I went to Publix and hoped that they would have some of the things I needed there. Alas, all they had was tofu. They did have a pack of stuff labeled "sushi seaweed," which is sort of vague. I thought maybe it'll work for the kombu I need to make dashi. Well, it of course wouldn't. Now I have a pack of nori in my pantry and I'm thinking "what am I going to do with this?!" Well, I also have about 3 cups of rice in my fridge and you guessed it!
And perhaps this endeavor was partly inspired by Mrs. Happy Hermit! ;-)
