So, I made sushi a few weeks ago! Looks beautiful, doesn't it! There are many tutorials online about making sushi. Take a look!

I filled my sushi with cucumbers, radishes, avocado, and tofu. I didn't have any fake crabmeat on hand, but I did have some tofu. So I sliced it into strips and marinated it in some teriyaki sauce for a while. To be on the safe side, bacterially speaking, I cooked the tofu in a fry pan before using it in my sushi. Everyone loved it, so I guess it worked out fine, lol.

If you and your family love sushi, you really need to give this a try. We also bought some wasabi and pickled ginger to go with it, although I think I'll try pickling my own ginger next time.

Lastly, I also made some absolutely wonderful miso soup to go with it. Alas, I have yet to actually get a decent picture of it, so you will have to forgive me for this picture. Here it is:

Miso soup really deserves its own entry, and I'll do just that some day. Until then, read about it at Maki's blog: I Was Really Just Very Hungry.

I have only made sushi at home a few times and it was good but missing something. This looks super yummy!

Well, we did dip it into some wasabi and soy sauce. Honestly, it was just a simple California roll, which is nice, but nothing like those fancy rolls you get at the nice Japanese restaurants. I don't think my dh wasn't overly impressed, lol.

I was just so tickled with myself for actually making sushi!!

I'm impressed that you've made it before!
