Happy Valentine's Day!
We decided to celebrate our engaged Valentine's by making homemade sushi and watching a couple of movies. The meal was quite a success and not all that difficult to prepare. We picked up the supplies at our local grocery store: avocado, carrot, cucumber, green onions, imitation crab, Nori (the seaweed wrapper), rice vinegar, and wasabi (powdered, dried horseradish). We already had rice, soy sauce, and the bamboo rolling mat at home. I can't believe how yummy it was and can't wait to try it again sometime soon. Maybe next time we'll even spring for some smoked salmon since we now have several of the basic ingredients on-hand.
Wishing you all a day well-spent with those you care for most!
