OK so I wanted to try to make our 12 Olympic meals at home (instead of doing take out), but clearly trying to learn to make sushi within the time frame of the Olympics was a bit ambitious. Especially since I have spent so much time everyday watching the Olympics.
so we found Sushi at a local grocery store. I got ours at Harris Teeter, but I would imagine that most higher end grocery stores would carry some sushi.
we just bought 3 different kinds and I knew that my two younger daughters were not going to be that adventurous so i also made ham & cheese “sushi”
the ham & cheese is back there by the fake grass. tortilla, cheese, ham & turkey rolled like a burrito but then cut into pinwheels.
we also have pot-stickers from the frozen food aisle.
If you wanted to be more authentic you could also serve your sushi on more geometric shaped plates (like square or rectangle). I personally don’t have any of those in my vast china cabinet 🙂
we also had Raman Noodles
and for dessert
these are very interesting. They are actually pounded sticky rice “cake” balls filled with ice cream (which could be made from Rice Milk). We found the Mochi at a local Trader Joe’s grocery store.
