he likes sushi too


me and eric both have this diehard love of sushi so we discovered a way to enjoy the goodness without suffering the major dent it puts in wallets. This is the third time we've put this whole thing together--with the beloved additon of avacados because they are back in season baby. The whole thing costs only about $10 once you have the rice and rice vinegar. and it's pretty quick to put together. especially if you have a working, fully functional kitchen. eric and me fumble around in my tiny little bathroom thawing the shrimp, use whatever plates we can find (rubber ducky ones this last time.), make our own strainers with pocket knives and plastic plates and cut up the ingredients with found butter knives or his swiss army knift.
anway, it all comes together quite well and tastes so good. and we make taco-style sushi using the seaweed squares as the taco. it's the same taste as the rolls with less time and no chopsticks (although i don't mind using them.)
this last time we tried to get some ginger and go for the real deal. we bought a little ginger root for 27 cents just to try it out. that root is so deceiving! it's really powerful stuff. if you ever try it, use shavings of it! we sort of just sliced it but it was way too painfully spicy. we had to throw it out. sad, i know.

dude, you gotta use pickled ginger! is that straight ginger? you can find the pickled kind at greenlife i think. and remember to mix sugar in with the rice wine rice. delish! tami and i used to make dorm sushi twice a week. we had a hello kitty rice cooker. invest in a rice cooker! it's way worth it!
