Chris and I had made plans to go out for sushi after work on Friday, but with the rain we were getting that evening we thought it'd be cozier to stay inside (and I was glued to the TV watching updates on Hurricane Ike). So we went to the store and bought smoked salmon and avocados so that we could make our own Philly rolls! We've been wanting to try it forever and it was a lot of fun. No, our first rolls did not look much like the ones you'd find at a sushi restaurant, but they definitely improved with practice. And even the smushed ones were yummy!
Rolling the sushi...the critical part!
Hmm...roll #1 didn't look so round.
It still tasted good!
Roll #3, our best effort yet...Chris surprised me with his sushi-rolling skills!
See? Not bad! And we're pumped to try again sometime soon. :)
