I was making Hawaiian hamburgers and I did not think that a little green onion was enough vegetables for the meal. Pickled cucumbers seemed like a good side dish for these Asian-ish burgers. I had half an English cucumber and two hours before dinner—just enough time.

When I made mitsubi for Eilene, I had leftover sushi rice. While onigiri are usually made with plain, unseasoned rice, I decided to turn the remaining rice into small rice balls. Onigiri usually have some kind of filling, with what I had on hand I chose to use Ebi Fume Furikake.
