| Morgan the younger broke 4 eggs and I finally just asked him to hand me
| the skins so I could wrap instead. <g> He was ok with that.
| Both of the boys love sushi thanks to their parents eclectic tastes.
| Sis' is also teaching them to eat chicken feet since I'll give her some
| from time to time. ;-d
| Anyway, I really don't have access to sashimi grade fish here so plan to
| use things like cooked shrimp, cooked crab meat, strips of other cooked
| meat, (chicken, beef or fish, maybe some salmon), avocado slices,
| lengthwise slices of cooked carrots, lightly steamed choy cut into
| strips, etc. Maybe some red lumpfish caviar in small amounts.
| I've never actually made it but I used to watch mom and dad make it when
| I was younger and it does not look too hard. Place the Nori on the sushi
| mats, layer the rice on top and put the center stuffing on one side.
| Roll up, seal the nori with a little water like making won tons, chill
| and slice it into 1" bits.
| Should not be too hard.
| Looking for other stuffing/ingredient ideas.
| And yes, I have squid in the freezer. <g>
Please don't forget the omelet <g>, many salads (ham, chicken, tuna,
shrimp, etc) inside a piece of nori with rice below for stability; they
and you should have a great time.
