How crazy it is to say October already. But I must say, I’m ready for beautifully colored crunchy leaves! Because, yes, I DO walk out of my way to step on especially crunchy looking leaves. It’s just a natural part of fall, people.
Here’s the latest update in our part of the world:
Plaza Art Fair
This past weekend my parents were in town visiting and we walked around the Plaza Art Fair on Sunday afternoon. The weather was perfect!It appeared Erik was feeling like a model because he kept posing for pictures. I think it’s the flannel getting to his head : )
Erik turned 29 yesterday so I wanted to make something “fun” for dinner.
Read: sushi. I used a sushi wrap kit with already sized nori strips and made veggie rolls using sticky rice, carrots, cucumber and avocado.Erik was banned from the kitchen so I could surprise him, but he came too close and guessed what I was making by the smell of the nori, ha :pResults?
It was a lot of fun to make but I wish I would have had a full nori sheet that I could cut myself rather than the pre made strips. I wasn’t able to make them the size I wanted and I just didn’t feel as cool with premade strips.
Being simple veggie rolls with virtually no seasonings, they were kind of bland, but overall not bad for my first homemade sushi attempt, ha. It gave me ideas for next time and now I’ll know how to improve them.
Served with fresh salad made with fruits and veggies from our Door to Door Organics loot.And now, the weekend!!
What are you looking forward to this weekend??
