A-Z Challenge Letter S is for Sushi

I can't believe we are almost done with the A-Z Challenge. But here we are on the Letter S. S has to be for sushi. We love to eat to sushi in my family and for the longest time I have been wanting to learn how to make it at home. Recently, I got my wish.

Prepping for the sushi rolling. These are some of the ingredients
I chopped up to for the different kinds of sushi. YUM!!

Trying to get the  hang of rolling the sushi tight is not too easy.

More ingredients to create the sushi!

And then....after all of that, Mr. Dave made us this amazing dinner.
Teriyaki chicken, pork, Asian slaw and a bunch of yummy veggies!!
A friend of our family, Mr. Dave, is a chef and he was gracious enough to invite us over for dinner and a cooking lesson. We stayed there from 4:00 in the afternoon until 11:00 at night and we all had to get up for church in the morning. Once my mom and her friends get talking, there is no stopping them! It was a ton of fun though and the best part was that I got to learn how to make pork wontons, four different types of sushi, and this amazing Thai chicken soup (which I will be featuring for letter T tomorrow).

I think my favorite type of sushi is the California roll.  The hardest technique to master was how to roll the sushi real tight. After a little while, I got the hang of it, but I definitely need a lot more practice. I really have to thank Mr. Dave and his family (they have four kids and then there were the five of us) for taking the time to teach me how to make sushi. I was like a sponge, and soaked up all the cooking instruction that I could get so I really, truly appreciate that he did all that, just for me.

Are you a fan of sushi? Do you make yours at home or get take out? See you all back here tomorrow for letter T!


  1. Look forward to the Thai soup! Not a big sushi eater since I like my meat cooked.

  2. Not a big fan of Sushi, but I love s good cooking class. How lucky you sre!

  3. Not a fan of sushi, but that cole slaw looked delicious.

  4. I am so impressed you made your own sushi. *looks hard* But I'll have to come back tomorrow for your soup recipe. Yum.
