My 13-year-old daugher Sam had a bad craving for maki today. Not just to eat maki but to make them. She’s done it several times before and I must say she’s getting really good at it. She said all her muscles hurt from the rigorous summer soccer training but I really don’t know how the aching muscles could have affected her taste buds. I made a huge tray of baked macaroni for lunch, enough to last through dinner, but while her sister feasted on the pasta, Sam hardly ate all day. She ate when she got home at around 10.00 a.m. from the soccer field, slept for a few hours, showered and then she seemed to have lost her appetite.
She sent some SMS to her father asking him to buy nori, crabsticks and ripe mangoes on his way home from work. But by 7.00 p.m., he called up to say he couldn’t find nori in two supermarkets and to tell Sam he would try again tomorrow. When he got home, I think he couldn’t stand seeing her sad and unable to eat. After a quick meal, he went out again to search for nori. It was almost 9.00 p.m. when he returned. Well, Sam was still in the mood for making maki. And the thing is, her dad, her sister and I were all in the mood to eat the maki. :lol:
