Sushi Chefs

 We've been lucky to make some great, new friends in the last year, all of whom share my enthusiasm for a fine meal. When my friend Katie suggested we make sushi together sometime, I knew we would get along just fine. So we got together one night to roll ourselves some sushi. Katie and Glen prepared the sushi rice and the nori, and we used their mats as well (I totally need my own!), and we all brought a wide variety of fillings: smoked salmon, cucumber, shrimp, cream cheese, avocado, sweet potato, carrots . . . and plenty more. They modeled their rolling techniques for us, and soon we were pros. In the end, we had way more than the 4 adults and 3 kids of us could ever eat, even after stuffing ourselves to the max. Now my mind is reeling with possibilities for fillings I can't wait to try!

(Of course after playing long and hard [putting every possible clip in her hair] with her friend Ada, this old soul was thrilled to chow down on some sushi.)
