For three years Dad has hinted he wanted some homemade sushi and his hints grew louder and more frequent as his birthday neared. Even inlisting family members!
One of us said with ease "sure, no problem" and the other person said "uuggghhh, how many days of prep will this take?". Surprisingly with less than a few hours for shopping and prep we all were presented with a feast of homemade sushi.
We got everything ready "sushi-bar style".
Everyone got to make their own special rolls.
Then we feasted outside under a warm summer evening.
There was a sashimi plate, gunkanmaki, nigirizushi and even tempura!
We were even treated to oshizushi or press box sushi.
However, the best part was eating all those personalized and traditional rolls!
Sushi is a great summer meal and an even better birthday meal!
