Bennett is back to his old self, but today Chris stayed home sick from work. Lame.

While Bennett took a 3 hour power nap, I was able to finally figure out how to make california rolls. I had all the stuff for them, then we became a bunch of sickies so it kept getting put off. 

It was easier than I'd imagined and it's not really that hard, there are just a lot of steps. 

The results were definitely worth it though. 

I put in cucumber, avocado, crab and cream cheese. 
In an hour and a half I cranked out 3 rolls with 9 pieces in each roll. 
I'm guessing it will go quicker next time now that I know what I'm doing.

We had our own little dim sum for lunch including bbq pork, satsuma potato croquettes and our california rolls. I also had bought some hum bao but we were too excited to eat them, and they didn't make it past dinner lastnight. Oops!

I think next time I make sushi I will do a tutorial to show you how easy it actually is. 

I would have made them sooner if I would have known!

Also, after lots of answered prayer, we are at the start of something very exciting!

    What is this exciting thing you mentioned? You can't just say that and expect people not to ask :)

    I hope Chris feels better soon, glad to hear Bennett is back to his old self!

    Why must you show me delicious looking sushi while I'm pregnant!? Not fair.

    But really, it looks amazing.

    YUM! I've been wanting to try some homemade sushi-making too! California rolls are my weakness. And exciting news. That's another one of my weaknesses. I'm intrigued! Tell all soon:-) xoxo
