Krumbs and I have recovered from our adventures at the New England Pirate Museum and now we're looking forward to visiting Japan for some fabulous sushi.  Well, maybe we won't exactly be going all the way to Japan, but we're going to experience some of Japan....right here in our home!

This is how it all started....we were visiting the Cafe (uh-huh!) and we found this fantastic article  called "Seafood and Rice and Everything Nice" by Edie Stoltz Zolkower.  The article is all about a food called sushi that was first created in 4th Century Asia, but is most known as a Japanese food.  Sushi is made of tasty foods like rice, seaweed, avocado, cucumber and fish, but some kinds of sushi is made of vegetables with no fish at all.  Krumbs and I were thrilled to learn about sushi, but we were more excited when we found out we could get recipes and make our very own sushi rolls!

We're having a bunch of friends over this weekend and we're going to "visit Japan" by reading the Cafe article and following the directions to make....sushi!!!!  I bet it will be a blast and I'm really looking forward to it.  (Krumbs is looking forward to it too, although he wasn't on board until I promised we'd make the fish-free version of sushi.)

Have you had sushi?  Do you like it?  Fish or no fish?  We'd love to know.  Visit us again to learn more about our adventures living the "Late Great Life"!

SI OH NAR UH is how you pronounce the word and it is a formal way of saying goodbye in Japanese.
