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
