Not-So-Perfect Sushi

I know my sushi doesn’t look very good there but that’s the very fist time after maybe ….. 7-8 years that I pick up the bamboo matt and roll out my sushi again. Hence I think those pictures certainly means something to me and a must keep (post) for me :P I used to be quite good in making sushi when I was in the UK where hubby (bf then) always asked me to make! Make! Make! and then we will eat that so call 'sushi-of-love' for our breakfast, lunch and also dinner, straight chilling from the fridge in the cold winter days :P I think my not-so-secret secret ingredient we all love most is the mayo!! And now I am making and sharing those sushi with my little girl …… really didn’t anticipated that ever in my life :)


The funny thing is she dare not to touch the sushi at the beginning, must be wondering what’s that white thingy with the black wrapper at the side :P She is afraid of food in black looking colour ……. but me and hubby didn’t coax her or anything, I just place the sushi in front of her while me and hubby let her watch us gobble down our sushi in no time :) Finally she made her first move and thank god, I am glad that our little picky eater at home loves it as much as her daddy and mommy does :)

I think she took 10 small sushi for her dinner that night :)

Esmeralda said...

What matters is the taste Caroline.. I bet the sushi taste real good... Wow.. last time u and hubby can eat sushi for the whole 3 meals a day? Then u must hv prepared a lot ya?

I too have not been rolling sushi for so many years. The last time I did that was when I'm still single, and staying with my mum in our old house.

Hehe.. Angel can eat the sushi ya? I've tried letting Ashton eat a piece sushi when we were dining outside, but I guess he dislikes the sourish taste... he just eat the filling.. *sigh*

Esmeralda said...

oh.. Angel had a new high chair? Looks different from her previous one if I can recall.

Cynthia said...

MommyAngel said...

Coffeesncookies, Mummy To Chumsy, HN, MummyGwen, Cath, FussyMum, Cynthia:
- thanks so much mommies :) You guys are definitely nice to give me such nice comments despite the looks on my sushi la :) *hugs*

Merryn, hahahaha … you are so naughty!!! Poor man!! I love sushi but I don’t dare to eat wasabi too …. Just can’t stand the weird taste of it, hehehehe.

Ann, some kids doesn’t like the seaweed too. Sometimes I would finely chopped the seaweed and mixed it into the sushi rather then wrap it up like that :)

Hweili, oh … so sorry to say that wasabi is one thing that I just cannot accept the taste :P Glad that you know how to enjoy it ya :)

MummyRyan, I am not good in cooking la, hahahahaha. Nope, Angel is still having a jolly good time with her grandparents :)

Agnes, hardly recognized you with your new picture there :) Nice Belly :)

BoeyJoey, it’s not that hard to make a sushi actually, just wrap the rice with ingredients you like :)

Esmeralda, yup …. Last time we was carzy about sushi coz we miss Asian food so much ma :) Wow … you also know how to make sushi then ya? So when are you going to do that again?
- yup, Angel likes the sushi. Even we are having Japanese food and if I can’t find anything which is not spicy for her, we will order her some normal sushi and she can eat 2 plates contain of 8 sushi in it. Sometimes she will peel the seaweed and ask me to eat la, hahahahaha …. Don’t’ know why.

MeRy said...

Looks delicious....and Angel seem enjoying her sushi meal alot.

Esmeralda said...

I guess I won't have the time to make any sushi nowadays.. my schedule is really packed...

Hehe... Ashton can't swallow the seaweed too.. and some more the colour is dark green.. so he will think tat it's black in colour.. he's quite picky when it comes to food.

mumsgather said...

Your hubby must be very happy that his little angel enjoys the sushi. So now he can enjoy his food of love again. lol.

MommyAngel said...


Mery, thanks :)

Esmeralda, so when will your ‘busy’ be over??? Sounds so packed with your time ya ….
- Angel also hates food which is black in colour but since I introduced pitted prunes to her, she is more ok with black colour food … she won’t eat all of them but she is willing to try thinking / hoping that they might be as nice as prunes :)

Mumsgather, yop … I hope he is happy :) But he did comment that last time I did it nicer :P :P Hahahahahaha

Esmeralda said...

Oh... at least Angel dared to try... I do hope that my busy schedule will be over soon, but I think that's not the case... :((

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Caroline, are you a sushi lover? I seldom takes japanese food, but once in a while I will crave for it.
I love handroll and salmon sushi. How about you?

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, really ah? Anyway, I wish you all the best in whatever you are busy with and stay happy :)

Joanne, I love the normal sushi only and not those with the sashimi, hehehehehe …… wow, you love salmon sushi ah? I bet they must taste nice coz I seldom eat salmon sushi :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Meaning those sushi with cucumber and egg but not squid or salmon. I see. Do you eat oyster?

Yeap, I love salmon sushi, maybe because I love the freshness of the meat that goes with the rice.

MommyAngel said...

Joanne, I love sushi a lot as long as all the ingredient is cooked :) I used to love oyster a lot and take a lot of it until I vomit (too full). Since then no more oyster to me :) Phobia maybe :P :P

I bet Salmon sushi taste really nice. I don’t really like fish actually. My family eat a lot of fish and maybe that’s why now that if I have a choice, I will not pick fish as my meal :)
