So many good things happened this weekend. But the first I want to tell you about is my Valentine’s Day. I have no idea what I did for Valentine’s Day last year. Really. And it’s been driving me nuts, so if you did something with me that night, please let me know. Obviously whatever it was, it wasn’t as lovely as what I did this year.

I had four Valentines and me and my four Valentines made sushi, salad, and miso soup. We are champs.

Prep:

Instruction:

Goof:

My fingers got so sticky! Missy taught Lindsay and I how to make nigiri and hand rolls: inside AND out. It was really fun. Some of the rolls turned out “ugly” but in a cute sort of way and it was okay because Lindsay and I were beginners. Laura and Missy on the other hand: pros.

Laura made the miso soup:

And here’s some of the final sushi product:

It was so good. We used salmon, avocado, cucumbers, and carrots. And it was delish.

For dessert, Mister Mike had picked up some Japanese desserts for us:

Some weird rice crackers and a bar of soap. Not really, but we like to joke. :) We had some sort of mochi, which I’ve actually never tried. I’m not really a fan of jelly-like desserts. I mean I guess I like jello, but mochi… I don’t know. Mike loves the stuff. We also had almost pocky sticks which I love.

AND in completely keeping with the Japanese/sushi theme: I brought cupcakes! Ha!

From Sugar Sweet Sunshine, my dears. And I mean come on, it was Valentine’s Day. Or as Liz Lemon told us this week: it’s Anna Howard Shaw Day, too.

It was a lovely, lovely evening hanging out with all of them. It’s really fun making dinner with a group of people, I don’t know why I don’t ever do it.

I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day, too!
