welcome ... enjoy yourself

did someone say sushi?

The highlight of my weekend was hosting a sushi making party.  I had helped make sushi once before, and I really enjoyed it - I decided making sushi with friends would be a good thing for a cold weekend.  It gave me an excuse to use the beautiful sushi (above) and sake (below) sets we received as gifts for our wedding.  They came from Ten Thousand Villages which makes me love them even more.  

The night of the party, my friend prepared most of the rolls because she had actual experience making sushi, but I did make at least one roll that stayed together - so I can officially check 'learn how to make sushi' off my 101 list!  While we waited for the sushi rolls to cool in the fridge, we sipped sake and enjoyed each other's company.  Then we stuffed ourselves silly with California rolls and had some Mochi ice cream for dessert.  YUM.  

Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the actual sushi making process, so I think I'll have to do a follow up post with ingredient info and directions.  Guess that means I'll have to make sushi again.  Oh shucks.
