a post that has absolutely nothing to do with anything

Last night I decided I would be adventurous and make sushi for dinner. 
I have never eaten it before, let alone make it, but I'm always game to try new things - and beside all the young ones in the office are eating it all the time :)) -how bad can it be?

Here is my roll of sushi rice, and my filling of crab meat, capsicum and cucumber, with a little bit of seafood dressing added for taste.

So far so good.


Pretty frickin good for a first attempt, and tasted good too.

However.....my DH decided that he'd sooner have a steak, so to make them more palatable in the meantime he drenched them in apple sauce! 

It would have been funny, except I cooked that much rice we'll be having them for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next week !!!

Have you been adventurous this week?

They look better than the ones I buy in my sushi shop.

I always make extra rice so I can enjoy rice "patties" Basic recipe: mix plain rice with beaten egg, shape into patties and fry in butter or oil. Additions can include onion, scallion, tomato, mushrooms: any leftovers. I even like them cold!

I've never tried it either. I did buy a new face creme yesterday tho.

All that lovely rice.... you can turn it into nasi goreng (fried rice) and the DH can put mint sauce on it!!! My "adventure" was making Thai Green Chicken Curry from the beginning ie not using a packet mix. It was a success!
