Glenn and I love sushi.  We started going out for it when I was in college, and every time Glenn came to visit me he had to go out for sushi!  And we always try to find some when we go out of town.  No fun when I was pregnant, but going out for sushi is still fun even if you can’t eat any!!  Well…no sushi bars in Likely, or anywhere for 100 miles.  Before we moved here, we actually bought a book on making sushi, as well as a nice set, and we haven’t gotten to use any until now!!  We saw they had fresh sushi grade tuna at our local grocery store, so we tracked down all the ingredients (we had to go to 2 different stores for all of the pieces!) and decided to have a sushi lunch the other day!  It was fun…a lot more prep work than we anticipated, but we weren’t in a hurry and we enjoyed the whole process!  Especially eating it!

The mini cookbook that we have is simply called “Sushi” and it’s by Ryuichi Toshii, Brigid Treloar, and Hideo Dekura (find it here).  We bought our sushi set at Cost Plus World Market, and our rice cooker was a wedding gift!  I really won’t go into details on how to make it, we’re not pros (yet, hee hee!) but I had to share the pictures of our yummy lunch!!

1st attempt -- not too shabby!!

We made some Classic Thin Tuna Rolls (Tekkamaki), but we added some avocado. Mmmm…

Along with some pink lemonade…that’s Japanese, right?? 🙂

Mmm...I wish it was in focus

We’re definitely going to have to do this again soon! Maybe we’ll make a night of it with some friends!!
