Sushi bites

Tuesday my tween asked if we could try making sushi. I’ve made spring rolls, Chinese style BBQ pork, ramen and other Asian inspired dishes. I even had seaweed wraps laying around but I hadn’t actually tried my hand at rolling sushi.

Of course I couldn’t say no so a grocery shopping trip yesterday morning and we had everything we needed for California rolls.

A California roll consists of imitation crab, cucumber, avocado and cream cheese rolled up in sticky rice and seaweed.

If you’re not a fan of fish tar tar this is a fun way to still enjoy sushi. It’s basically a crab salad with rice but the crab isn’t shellfish it’s made of a white fish, haddock is common.

For the breakfast bites I made sticky rice and put a small layer in each tin, added bite size bits of imitation crab, cucumber, avocado and cream cheese then topped it with egg.

The egg ends up holding everything together which is handy. If I had a little extra time I would’ve tried adding the seaweed wrapper to each tin but… You know how time can get crunched before you know it.

On the farm front we’ve been teaching the mini horses to ground tie. What that means is if you drop the rope on their halter they’ll stand still.

It’s a good idea for any horse, not just minis. Having a horse that will stand while you’re working around it without being tied to anything is useful in ways you don’t think about until it happens.

The younger of the two has started picking up the habit of going back to her pasture when she sees the halter/rope because that’s where we take her but we’re going to have to break that because the pasture won’t always be the final destination.

The teens having a hair crisis.

Have a good breakfast and a great day!
