Today’s School Lunch: Sushi Rolls

IMG_8099.JPG

When it comes to school lunch, I now leave it in the hands of my son… usually. But even he gets tired of his own sandwiches at some point (which is going to happen when “peanut butter” is the only sandwich you’re willing to make). To give him a break, I helped make sushi for him. And to reduce the amount of mess that’s bound to happen in his lunchbox, I opted to just halve the roll and wrap it in sandwich paper… and a soy sauce fish thrown in.

The sushi rice was actually prepared a week ago and has been sitting in the fridge awaiting its next use. I spoon out the amount needed into a bowl and reheat the rice in the microwave… and it’s just as good as having prepped it the day of.

Owen’s sushi of choice is the California roll, but he’s not fond of avocados. So in this version, cheese replaces the avocado and is joined with the usual suspects… cucumber, “seafood stick” and mayonnaise. Hopefully, we’ll have an empty lunchbox this afternoon!

Exactly the same sushi, but cut into pieces.
