Valentine's Day Tradition

A few years ago, we decided to make sushi for the first time on Valentine's Day. It was a fun way to cook together and it actually turned out halfway decent. So we made it the following year, and again this year to keep up the tradition.

Gotta set the mood right. ;)

We made avocado, cucumber and California rolls. A partially successful attempt was even made at shrimp tempura and tempura avocado rolls! We are by no means professionals, and it's not surprising for a roll to turn out a little wonky. Even if the rolls aren't perfect they always taste awesome. We are still working on our technique, and next time we make a good batch we will put up a short tutorial in case you'd like to try making sushi at home. It really is pretty simple, fun and rewarding to do with someone you love.

And you can't beat seeing your man working in the kitchen!

  1. Love the lighting and how crisp but soft that everything looks. And the angle of the middle photo is lovely. You two did a beautiful job on the food!

  2. Thanks, Heather! David actually took those first two photos, so gotta give him credit! I love the angle of the second one, too. :)


Thank you so much for visiting! We enjoy reading each and every one of your lovely comments.
