Holy Mo it's an outfit post! Sorry I've been lagging. After Colorado, I was sick, then after the sickness, I was busy at work, then after the busy at work, I was lazy as fuuuuuuh..... So here is me back in action and rocking a HOMIES tee. I really loved the black and gold version but this one seemed more authentic Hermes-wanna-be in the orange. Hahaha. I couldn't stop giggling at the low-rider above the letters with a verified homie in the driver's seat. Just thought I'd keep things casual this day since we were off grocery shopping for our Sushi-Date-Night-In experiment.
What did we learn? Making sushi is no joke. There are lots of things you have to get to do it right. You should wait for the sushi rice to get to room temperature before you start shoving your hands all up in there. Test the heat of the oil for tempura by dropping one drop of the batter into the oil. Good tempura batter uses COLD sparkling water and a few ice cubes. Wetting the knife helps in cutting the roll. It's really easy to make too much sushi once you get going. And finally, everything is funner with sake shots. The Hubster and I actually had a lot of fun cooking together. Usually when we try this, I end up doing all the work and he just watches and says nice phrases like "looking good" "smells amazing" "oh is that how you do that?" This time he was part of the process and also the official shot re-filler. We were very proud of our huge pile of rolls and our homemade Japanese meal. =) Side note, why did I think sweet potatoes were orange? The sweet potatoes I had and peeled and fried were a light yellow. How come when you order sweet potato fries at a restaurant they are orange? Maybe I need to Google this. I hope you enjoy the pics!
