Summer and Sushi!

I had my last day of placement yesterday...and summer begins! I just got back from a walk on the boardwalk, it could not be any more gorgeous out.

Billy and I had plans to shop yesterday so when I got home (it was a half day) I made a quick pasta and bean lunch; with romano beans, diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, mushrooms and brown rice pasta. I topped it with some vegan parm too.

To celebrate the start of my vacation, I decided to finally try (and make) sushi for the first time. I kept it really simple with fillings of cucumber and tofu bites. For the sushi rice and instructions I used Vegan Lunchbox. Sushi is yummy! I got Billy to make a roll, but he refuses to try it :( Next time I'll be making it with brown rice, since there's basically no nutrition in these ones, but I wanted to go for authentic my first time. And they're fine as next-day leftovers too.

You did a wonderful job on your sushi!

I love pasta. I think I could eat it everyday.

I've never made sushi rolls although I like to eat them. The place I get them from puts carrots, cucumbers and avacados in the center of the roll. I do like the idea of tofu bites! Billy should try them. It could be his new favorite.

very inspiring! I've been wanting to make sushi myself for too long.
