Show and Tell: Sushi

My sister gave us sushi plates and knives for my birthday. She thought there was a sushi mat included, but there was not. We searched for a sushi mat (OK, we didn't search very hard) but didn't find one. Until DH managed to find one for my Christmas present! So now we have a complete sushi kit. And here is what we did with it:

We made three kinds of sushi: California rolls (crab sticks, avocado, and cucumber) and two veggie rolls (cream cheese, cucumber, and avocado and scallion, green pepper, and zucchini). We weren't going to try to do anything with raw fish, so this was pretty simple.

Here are a few action shots:

It was much easier to make than we expected. I thought this was something you had to train to do for years and your first attempt would be disaster. But we stuck to some easy recipes and good directions (find them here). It was a lot of fun, too.

This is International Blog Delurking Week. I know there are some of you lurking here and I would love to get to know you better. Leave a comment and tell me if you ever had or made your own sushi. What type of sushi do you like?

And, this is my first time participating in Show and Tell. Go to Mel's place to find out what others are showing.


  1. This is pretty impressive. I LOVE sushi, even the raw fish kind, but have never attempted to make any. I may have to try my hand at it now. Great job!

  2. That looks so yummy!!Good job:)

  3. I am personally not a sushi eater but looks like you did an awesome job! Mucho congrats on your kitchen triumph! I love new kitchen gadgets and creations :)

  4. Wow, that looks amazing! I don't eat sushi but my husband would love that!

  5. Great job Missy!! I am really impressed!

    I know quite a few people who have failed at their first attempts!

  6. Found you through Mel's Show & Tell. Oh, my, that looks delicious!!

  7. Wow! That looks great... and since two are veggie only, I may actually eat them! congrats on a successful first attempt!

  8. We received a sushi kit years ago, but always thought it would be too complicated. Now maybe we'll try it! Great pictures!

  9. Hello!

    My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my blog: . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

    I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

    Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at .


  10. Very impressive ! I love sushi I might have to try this myself.
