Spam Musubi and Anki

by Russ

WARNING: Don’t watch this whole video… seriously.  I couldn’t even watch the whole thing.  This is literarily me cooking musubi from beginning to end!!! ALMOST 40 MINUTES!  Go watch a movie instead, you’ll have much more fun! haha. Seriously, after 30 minutes I got tired of editing and just quit… so you should do the same, but now 🙂

Day three of my learning log experiment!  Today my study partner 阿沙子さん (あさこさん)was stuck working late, so I decided to study some Anki.  But, I also had planned to make some SPAM musubi to share with my coworkers today so I thought it might be interesting to record me doing both!  Talk about multitasking.

A few things missing in the video:


Here you can find the Anki list I’m using in the video.  Currently I’m about 30-40 words in and I am using a number of different decks that I’ve created myself that I may share if anyone’s interested.


I made the rice the same morning I recorded the video, but it should be noted that I washed it the night before and let it dry out over night.  In retrospect this may be the reason I had so much trouble, I usually only let my rice sit for about 1-3 hours after washing it.


Incase it was two fast in the video, my sauce mixture recipe (for 8 pieces of spam) is as follows:

  • 1oz of Soy Sauce
  • 1/2oz butter
  • 1/2oz of sugar

Throw it all into a cup and microwave until it’s all liquified.
