Wow! I made some sushi!
I bought a sushi mat the other day. I have never attempted to make sushi before. It was great fun (apart from when my rice cooker - my favourite kitchen gadget - decided to die and I had to cook the rice in a saucepan). They turned out well.
I spread the seaweed with:
Cooked and cooled short grain rice to which I had added a splash of rice wine vinegar, some black pepper and some juice of a lime and a sprinkle of sugar.
Long fresh Tasmanian garden pea sprouts.
Slithers of yummy Tasmanian smoked salmon.
A dab of home-made low fat mayo drizzled along the top.
All rolled up with my sushi mat and voila .....
Who needs to go to the sushi takeaway shop - not me!!!!!
I found a lamp base on ebay and it arrived today. I love it! So happy - base $17.50 (including postage) and leadlight shade from the market for $4. (It is actually dark pink glass - this is not a good pic, but you get the idea).
