I think Bobby and I are going to start doing “Sushi Friday” every week. We did it yesterday and also last Friday (Bobby’s birthday) when my mom was here. I made kabocha-ushi and real sushi. This fushi stuff is my new obsession. Thanks Emily :) We had:
- sashimi on the far right (tuna, salmon, and yellowtail pieces – precut from Han Kook)
- sushi rice (for Bobby – white rice + vinegar/sugar mix)
- seaweed (nori) and lettuce for wrapping
- jicama “rice”
- shredded kabocha + garlic, sauteed
- daikon sprouts
- bacon bits
- soy sauce + wasabi for dipping
I did not make enough of the fushi ingredients because I underestimated my white-carb-loving boyfriend. Bobby loved the shredded kabocha, loved the bacon bits, the sprouts, and he even loved the jicama rice. This is a boy who could live on white rice – I couldn’t believe he enjoyed my crazy version. He tried the wraps with regular rice and with the jicama and actually preferred the jicama rice for these wraps. He says it was very “fresh“. I’ll definitely be making this again.
When I was at Han Kook getting the sashimi and some groceries, I picked up this guy:
Heather had one the other day so I wanted to try it. It’s called a chayote. Chayote has a big booty. What should I do with it?
This morning Bobby and I went to the farmers’ market where we got these delicious yellow nectarines and yellow peaches – 3 pounds for $5.
My mom and I got them last week from the same place (we tried all of the stands and this one was the best). They’re really delicious. I like eating them when they’re still really firm, and so does Bobby, so we found the firmest ones possible.
In other news, I have a new layout! Thanks for the comments on it so far :) Stop by and check it out to let me know what you think. Happy Saturday! What have you done so far this weekend? Remember to call your dad tomorrow
