#3 -- I can't believe I guessed this one! I was tempted to give up before I started. Yes, in my pantry. I used to be able to buy packages with 40 sheets. Good reminder to make more 3.
Very sneaky, birthday girl!

3. Sad to say, I don't have any in my cupboards.

If I had been the first one to see this I would have been completely stumped! Great photo!

I guessed it straight away then second guessed myself and had to peek. I do not have this in my pantry, sadly. Still have not quite developed a taste for it. Your beautiful dish and recipe could change that!

#3!! I don't have this in my pantry. I like to leave this one up to the professionals!

It is #3

3 yes I have it, I knew what it was right away!

#3, have some!

#3... but it wasn't easy. I have the kind you scatter on top of rice. I love this alphabet knowledge you are sharing and enjoy your site in so very many ways.

#3. I didn't need to see the ingredients of each recipe to know what it was. While I love what it's used for, I don't have this in my pantry.
