Japanese spring rolls

Fried about thirty of these for dinner. They were a hit!

I just cut carrots, cucumber, crab stick and added a blob of kewpie mayo and some sesame seeds.

Rolled them up in these 'popiah' wraps and deep fried them. The original recipe also has bell peppers but my kids don't like so I don't put.

Fancy Sushi

I made fancy sushi for lunch today. Occasionally, I would surprise the children with some fancy sushi. This requires a lot of time and skill.

This one I made is considered simple. My 'sifu' from PJ Hilton 'rolled' a Japanese word - it was awesome!

I used sakura denbu for the color of the peach blossom.

I had to first roll the five 'petals' and then re-roll all the five 'petals' on another nori spread with white rice.

School Holidays?

Was up early to send Daughter number 3 for a computer workshop in school. It's Mon - Thurs, 8.30a.m. - 10.30 a.m.

Since I was already up and hubs gone to work, I made pancakes for my two elder girls. I cut some bananas and Kiwi fruit. The gourmet mushroom sausage was topped with some wholegrain mustard.

Pancakes were served with Maple syrup (not shown). Basic Pancake recipe from the reliable and almost full proof Martha Stewart.
