Make your own sushi
YaY to theme parties! Our theme parties usually consist of food, food and more food. Tonight was no exception. When Ms C* suggested Japanese Night, She smartly sold the idea to me by mentioning that it would be wonderful for my blog. And yes indeed it was! Now looking back at the photos, it makes my mouth water and my heart warm from remembering the happy memories. I would say yes in a heart beat next time without a thought of my blog... because I truly had a wonderful time!
There was alot of preparation because we wanted people to make their own sushi from the ingredients on the table. So we provided every imaginable fillings that we could think of that was Japanese. The girls went to buy the ingredients in the afternoon and I met up with them to prepare the filling. It was a team effort which consisted of chopping, peeling, frying, and simmering.
As you would have notice, the style of the photos look different because they were taken by my dear friend Ms L*. Note, I wouldn't have been able to do such a good job!
We roasted our own rice, to make traditional roasted rice with green tea. The aroma is beautiful and is very popular in Japan. You can also purchase pre-made ones in Asian grocery stores.

After our successful dinner party, we headed into the lounge area and 'The married one' ( she is the only married one out of all of us) showed us DVDs of her wedding night. And we release a lot of happy tears.
