This year we are having a food theme for each night. So far we have had Vietnamese, Mexican and last night was Sushi.
One of the girls has a friend from Japan who has been living here for about 4 months.. We'll call her R. Now R is young - and by young I mean way younger than me -way younger means like early 20's - but MAN does she make a mean Sushi. She volunteered to teach us how to make our own using her authentically Japanese recipe (with locally purchased ingredients of course)
Now I love Sushi A LOT but I don't get to eat it very much because Yvan does not. Sigh!
So, I was overly excited about this little venture of ours.
Oooooooh would ya look at that!
A Perfect roll! Thank you, thank you very much
Now let's do it reversed with the seaweed inside
R admiring..er I mean...laughing...at our rolling skills.
Sesame seeds and saran wrap so the rice don't stick!
Inari pockets - if you have never had these tasty little treats you are missing out.
Seasoned tofu - deep fried than stuffed with rice and whatever delicious items you can think of.
I like avocado the best! Lori cutting our rolls
*Edit - not only did I get to eat the best sushi EVER but I won the pot. Now I am off to peruse the Garmin website for a new training watch! It's gonna make me RUN FAST!*
