Tonight I decided to treat my girls to Green Tea, homemade sushi and Chicken Teriyaki. . . sorta. I'll have to admit that I cheated a bit on the sushi. Yes, I cooked the rice, assembled and rolled the sushi but the sushi rice mix was straight from a pouch. It's the easiest way to make sushi and it taste good too.
You can't tell from the photos, but some of the dishes and bowls are quite lovely. The girls felt like they were getting a fancy meal because we used "real" breakable stuff, rather than their everyday plastic cups and plates.
I'm glad we shared this dinner tonight. While filling our tummy's, we talked about the food and practiced using chopsticks. We talked about hot vs. spicy while sampling the pickled ginger and wasasbi paste. It was such a civilized meal. I think I'll do it again soon.
