I know with all the Japanese food we've been making around here, you've all been wondering when we would try sushi. Well, you can finally rest peacefully.
Some of the ingredients we chose to have on hand:
By the end, we got a little crazy with our insides. We did one with egg and cream cheese and some fish thing (that one was really good). We also did a kimchi one (i know, it's Korean, but Iris loves the stuff) and we used Iris's very last pickled plum. When her mom sent them, she shared them with Jay and I. She just popped hers in her mouth and said, "I love these!!" So Jay followed suit, while I timidly took a small bite. After an amazing look on Jay's face, (that looked something like below) he spit it out in the garbage, and I commented on how there was no way I could finish mine because it tasted like someone had just poured salt on a cube of salt and asked me to eat it. I'm telling you, this thing was SALTY!!!
So anyway, she took her last one and cut it up small and put it in a sushi roll. It still made Jay do this:
We decided that some more color would have been pretty... maybe some red or yellow bell pepper or slightly cooked carrot?
Anyway, it's official! We like sushi :)
