sushi night

my family's favorite dinner is sushi night. years and years ago, mark and i would go our for sushi once a week. we had an awesome local sushi bar on the east side of santa cruz called pink godzilla. it's still there, but we started a family and moved south.

so now we make it at home. about once a month. it's actually simpler than it looks. i keep the ingredients limited, to keep it even simpler. the girls get all you can eat avocado rolls, and i rotate between a few different rolls for mark and i.

some of my favorites are tempura shrimp rolls (i buy the shrimp all ready to go from trader joe's), smoked salmon rolls, and good old sashimi local fish when we're feeling rich.

i keep a big bag of sushi rice, some nori (that's the seaweed wrapper), and wasabi (you've gotta have wasabi!) in the pantry so that when the mood strikes, we're eating sushi for dinner!!
