I know on Sundays many ladies are in the kitchen cooking food for the next couple of days or even a week! They freeze containers of lasagna or soup or whatever to last them. I always admired those who did that, as I do not! If I had more children, I bet I would though. Cooking takes up a LOT of time so this summer I am trying my hand at making sushi on Sundays to last a few days.
3 cups of uncooked rice made enough for 7 rolls, so about 42 sushis total! (actually I think these have TOO much rice in them, so make that 8 rolls)
Tali will eat the ones with cucumber only. I also have some with spicy (not too spicy) bamboo shoots, kimchi, carrot, even spam or a bit of cream cheeese. Sometimes imitation crab when we have it. Mark LOVES spicy bamboo shoots. You can buy them in any Asian market in jars. I finally tried them, then kicked myself for not trying sooner! 🙂 Delicious! What have we all been missing out on??
I also have been making kimchi pancakes, which are awesome too! A 1/3 cup of rice flour, a 1/3 cup of regular flour and a cup of kimchi and can about 5-6 pancakes. That was another dish I wasn’t sure I would love, but it’s soooo tasty!
So this has been a year of Theresa getting more creative and learning more recipes from around the world. This summer I am going to focus on Mexican/South American ‘street’ food, and this Fall, African dishes.
