We made sushi! Well at least my husband did while I offered moral support and taste testing. My sister gave us a sushi making kit for Christmas and we have been wanting to make it for a while but I gotta be honest it was intimidating until we went to a sushi class and saw an armature make mediocre sushi. It was fun and yummy. We didn't realize how far the ingredients would go though, and were able to make it two nights. I am looking forward to the next sushi night! Just thinking about it is making my mouth water.
