So, I don't know what is up with me lately but I have been craving sushi! We have had it three times in a week! And sushi is a little expensive to be eating so often, so we decided to make some at home (well I sorta made Kelby). I've been wanting to do it for like EVER! Above is the seaweed, the sesame seeds and the bamboo mat (I researched some stuff online). The bamboo mat was a place mat (haha) which we had to substitute for a real one (and it didn't work so well) and the seaweed was a little too tough (we'll have to find a different brand) BUT it did the job!
Here is the sushi rice after I finished cooking and cooling it with sushi rice vinegar.
Here are the chopsticks, miso soup packets (yum) and the bowls we used for the soup. These bowls are the ones BooBoo gave us from Japan!
And here are some of the fillings, cucumbers and avocado's. MMMmmm! And of course we had meat. Crab and Shrimp.
And here's some of the sushi! We quickly discovered that our knives are no where NEAR sharp enough (I really want a sushi knife now!) so they made the rice fall off a little (which was annoying and totally ruins my display) However they were DELICIOUS! And Kelby made me make some more the next day!
YUMMY Miso Soup! I even ate the tofu this time although the seaweed is my favorite!
And of course more sushi! I learned a lot from this first experience and I am excited to get all the right tools so I can make more! It's a lot of fun!
Man, this is making me want more sushi!
