This past weekend I had a craving for sushi. Some people get a hankering for pizza, hamburgers, tacos, chocolate, ice-cream. All that stuff is delicious but sushi is where it’s at!
I’m not prejudice; I’m open-minded when it comes to stuffing my pie-hole with new creations or old favorites, in a restaurant or homemade. Yesterday I decided that enough was enough! I HAD to quench my desire for quality hand rolls while practicing my japanese cooking technique. (Did I mention that I love to cook??)
I scanned my sushi book and decided on Inside-Out California and (cooked) Salmon rolls. While I’m definately getting better at layering the ingredients so the rolls come out even and pretty, i’m still on my feet the same length of time. Im passionate about cooking; the whole process of mixing, measuring and chopping puts my mind at ease. I get in the rolling groove and totally forget the intense strain on my leg and back from standing……until I’m finished. Then it hits me like a truck. Time to lie on my bed with my feet up, bi-pap on and electonic stimulants off……sleepy time.
***Totally worth it.***
The next day I had some rice and toppings left over but no nori paper. Bahahaha…..like that will stop me?? Picked up some Nori and an extra avacado from the grocery store and got chopping. “Sushi Night: Part Deux.”
I was having so much fun and so suprized at how well the rolls came out that I had to document them in living color! (Speaking of “In Living Color”, I’m so excited about seeing Jim Carey’s new film, Dumb and Dumber To.)
Anywho, I hope you enjoy the photos and decide to try some sushi making yourself. It’s a blast! In addition, if you have any good sushi-related stories or questions, feel free to comment.
