Sushi

Our family made sushi (California Roll) for dinner tonight. It was so much fun! Here are some links in case you want to try it.

For the recipe we used the one from Good Eats -

But before we were ready to try inside out rolls, we did normal rolls, using the same ingredients, like this:

Then we did the inside-out California rolls, using the 1/2 sheet of nori like Good Eats says, and it worked pretty well – some of them fell apart. You have to be super careful when you cut them.

Then I got ambitious and made Caterpillar roll (but without the unagi – and still using the 1/2 sheet of nori) like this: http://sushiday.com/archives/2006/12/23/caterpillar-roll/ . They were the best IMO.

Lastly, I made miso soup with a bit of Thai fish sauce (instead of the fish “tea bag”), miso, and a bit of torn up nori. (Ratio – 2.5 cups water; 1.5 tbsp miso; 1 tablespoon fish sauce).

We’ve decided we’ll make Sunday into a regular date to make dinner together as a family…next week, homemade pizza with the bread machine.
