let me see that sushi roll

in honor of my sister-in-law's birthday today, the other emily and i decided to surprise her with a homemade sushi dinner.  you wouldn't think that making the birthday girl cook her own birthday dinner would be the best idea but it was so much fun!  i've never eaten sushi before (raw fish, no thank you) so making and eating it in the same night was a big step for me.  it turned out to be pretty easy (after a few practice rounds) and i would definitely suggest giving it a try!

ready for our sushi party!

"Ni Hao Jessica!"

the right amount of rice is key

the birthday girl 

crab, avocado, cucumber... perfect california roll

working hard to get the perfect roll

our finished product... not the best presentation but oh so good!

and the night ended as all great nights should...
with the most delicious chocolate molten cake from chili's

30 seconds later...


  1. Loved my EEJ Birthday sushi-edition!

  2. I love your blog! Is it bad that the only thing I can think of while perusing this section of your blog is the scene from Sex in the City?

  3. i would be sad if you did not think of SATC. and i love that we saw that movie together!
