Fun Lunch

Well…today is going, that’s for sure. I’ve been busy all morning and this afternoon will probably be non-stop, too. But I’ll get it all done!

The weather today is just perfect: 70s, a little breezy. I have the AC turned off and the windows open, and I love it.  Although, that makes the trains going by a lot louder :)

I was pretty excited about lunch today! I had a new product to use that I bought at the store last week.

I’ve seen these brown rice sushi kits before, but never wanted to pay almost $4.50 for it – they were on special last week, so I finally bit the bullet and got one to try.

I’m so glad I did!

Mine were NOT as pretty as the ones on the box, but they sure did taste good! And it was so easy to get these ready.

I rolled up some cucumber, carrot, and avocado in my sushi. I also made the entire box for me (10 pieces).

I wish we had a sushi place here that used brown rice – I loved it in these!

I also had a plate on the side with some broccoli I just steamed in the microwave, the last of the rice I couldn’t fit in the rolls, a little extra avocado and some soy for dipping.

Yum – I’m already sad it’s gone!

Apparently, Roxy loves the smell of soy sauce because she would not leave me alone while I was eating. She kept trying to get on my plate, in my lap, in my face…maybe she likes sushi?

I just grabbed a small bowl of grapes to finish out lunch – these black grapes have been so good lately.

Back to work I go!

 

Do you like sushi?

Happy Birthday to Rose and a late Happy Birthday to Erin  :)

    Its funny that’s your question because I ate sushi for lunch today! I hadn’t had it in a while, but I would eat it every day if I could afford it and there wasn’t that whole mercury poisoning problem!

    Wow! Those look great and I think you did a wonderful job with them! To be honest…I don’t like fishy fish…so I’ve never tried sushi! I’d be all for a veggie version though :) I can’t believe its Monday! Hope you are having a good day

    Yum Yum Yum! I love sushi! I’ve never seen those kits, but I’ve really been wanting to buy sushi wraps (they’re called nori right?) and I can never find those either.

    Your lunch looks fun indeed, no wonder Roxy wanted in on the action!

    I love sushi and could it eat almost everyday. Thanks for reviewing those sushi wraps. They look really good and pretty easy to make. BTW, happy birthday to your sister! Your pancakes were drool-worthy as well. Nice!

    Also, my breakfast cookie came out great! Thanks for your help. I gave you a shout out on my post from today. So thank YOU again!!!

    I like sushi when it doesn’t have raw fish in it. Cucumber sounds awesome

    I have always seen those too–but been too scared to try it! Sushi just sounds so intimidating to make, you know? Not anymore–you proved me wrong and I thank you for it. :)

    I love brown rice sushi. I had some the other day while out running errands. My friend said she will teach me to make it someday so I don’t have to pay out the nose for it.

    I’ve seen those before and I’ve been SO tempted to buy them, but like you wasn’t too into the price. So lucky you found them on sale – they look wonderful!

    PS- I think your rolls DO look just as wonderful as the ones on the box ;)

    OMG I LOVE SUSHI! There’s this great place in Omaha that has half price sushi every day (well not on Saturdays) and it rocks! I’ve never been brave enough to try making it myself though.

    I see those kits in Wal-Mart all the time, but was too intimidated to try em’–looks easy enough for me! :-)

    I just tried sushi for the first time within the last month–loved it!
