At some point in my early adulthood, I discovered sushi. My office bestie and I, back when we lived with our parents, literally went out for sushi every day. So much so that when we were seated at the restaurant, the owner would greet us and say “Hey Jess! Hey Mo! the usual??” and more times than not we would order the same exact thing.

I eventually took a sushi making class with Jess and while i still enjoy going out for sushi, making it at home is still one of my favorite things to do on a Friday night or any night i just want to create something.  IMG_0952

When I make sushi at home, i stick to the short cuts. Cucumber. Avocado. Canned tuna with sriacha and mayo(if needed). I usually have all the ingredients on hand and finding super fresh fish at the drop of a hat is not relaxing to me.

So with 5 sheets of nori, 2 cups of seasoned rice, 1/2 seedless cucumber and 2 avocados i put on some Pandora (green day channel) and got busy. IMG_0959

The annoying part is definitely the prep but the end result is worth it. IMG_0960It was the first time I made sushi for BR.

He didn’t seem to mind the absence of animal protein.
