Five Minute Photo Shoot: Quinoa Sushi

Last night’s dinner: maki filled with Gulf shrimp, avocado, water chestnut, green onion, and Serrano pepper.  Because, you know, Wednesday.

Also, did you know you can make sushi with quinoa instead of rice?  Cook some quinoa, purée half, mix it all together, and voilà!, sticky quinoa.  Thanks, Heston Blumenthal!  I used a combo of red and white quinoa, and left it unseasoned.  Fabulous.

note to self: work on sushi-rolling skills

This post is also a little experiment; I started using Dropbox, which makes it way easier to post photos from my phone.  The top picture is from my phone, the bottom two are from my proper camera.  That is all.

Five Minute Photo Shoot: One Night Off

After a reasonably intense couple of weeks, I deserved a night off.

This is also known as reason #39584 that I love living in a city: sushi delivery.  This place is so great.  Love how they didn’t toss the broccoli with the sauce.  I hate when broccoli is sodden with thick sauce caught in the florets; it makes me want to rinse it off.

The leftovers were pretty great for late breakfast, too.
