The 2010 Sushi Experiment

The 2010 Sushi Experiment
My husband loves sushi. Me, well, not so much, giggle (yes deliberate poor English here). We decided to make our own. We watched a few youtube videos. You can find most anything you need on google and youtube these days! We needed to learn the art of rolling. Rolling down a hill is easy, so how hard can rolling sushi be?
We gathered all of our sushi making goodies and started rolling.

My husband (God bless him) has hands like baseball mitts. I call him Lenny (from Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men) he often doesn’t know his own strength. His first attempt oozed sushi fillings out both ends like toothpaste from a tube.  

A few more tries and he had created what resembled sushi rolls. He ate them before I could take the photo. Sushi rolling is hungry work!
Then it was my turn….drum roll please…………………………
 this is how my first try came out! Yes!!!
 After a little muppet victory dance we sat down and ate the rest of our creations.  Guess what, yep, still don’t like sushi. But I’ll be happy to roll it! I ate mostly fried wontons for dinner. 
Have you tried making your own sushi?

I am not a sushi fan so can I just say uummm yuck. My sister loves it though. I am afraid of it, just can't do it. Now fried wantons....oh yes bring them on!
Have a great day

Oh yes, I LOVE it! In fact, we went out for sushi Saturday night. But I have no want to make it--just eat it!! I don't like the California rolls with the seaweed wrap--I prefer the other rolls and sashimi.

I'm not a big fan of sushi either.

I love it :)
I also make my own (but only in summer) - the cucumber and the crabmeat rolls. Yummy!
