What Came Home?
This is the tale of 1 family and the famous California Roll.
Not that long ago –well longer than I want to admit as it was before we had kids– both The Husband and I declared our HATE of sushi. If we were with a group of people and they wanted it, we’d pray there’d be something else on the menu for us.
Then, one day, Mom, as in ME, ordered a “Lunch Box” at a Japanese steak house. On it came 3 unsuspecting California Rolls.
Stuffed with avocado and crab stick, I decided to give it a try and fell in love.
Years went by and I got more adventurous with sushi/maki orders. I went raw, roe topped, spicy anything is now fair game.
Honestly, I couldn’t get enough. The Husband on the other hand, still declared his hate of “sushi” until he, himself, was presented with a California roll just a few months ago.
It shall now forever be known as the gateway roll.
Now, with Mom and Dad both touting the awesomeness of the California Roll, Little Guy was intrigued. He had tried some of my rolls in the past but could never wrap his little mouth around them. Each attempt always ended with a funny face and broken pieces.
Whether it’s age or the fact that his little mouth isn’t so little anymore, I can’t be sure, but now he loves jamming California Rolls in his mouth and was ecstatic we had some leftover for his lunch.
I shall be learning how to make my own, this may be too good to be true.
