Seaweed and My Back-to-School Plan

I'm learning that children eat anything if you wrap it in seaweed.

I make a pot of rice and then mix in some rice vinegar. 

I spread the sticky rice over the seaweed, and then I arrange some cream cheese, scrambled eggs, and spinach on top.


I roll it up.



I slice and serve it.



The sushi disappears.


Who knew that my daughters and their friends would eat whatever I roll into the rice and seaweed?  I experiment with fish, nectarines, various vegetables, and even more cream cheese.  Gone

I'm packing sushi for lunch when school starts with lots and lots of spinach.  Living with flair means you wrap things in seaweed sometimes because children (and adults) love novelty and food art.

Maybe we can endure anything if we just clothe it and present it correctly.

Wow, Heather - I'm impressed! I've not had any desire to try sushi, but you've challenged me to at least give it a try.

And I'm so, so happy you're joining the "through the window" challenge!

Not unlike the seaweed making perhaps normally unappetizing food a treat, I recently learned to wrap my dogs' pills in cheese or whatever but give it to them in the hand which did not hold the pill; this way, they don't smell the pill on my hand, only the treat! Seems to me multiple species enjoy wrapping!

Did you have to buy one of the special rolly mats? If not, what did you use?

I just rolled it by hand!

Ha! This is great! I was just saying the other day that I never eat anything unless it looks pretty first! Sushi--one of my favorite things...I'm going to have to find some seaweed now. Yours looked beautiful. :)
