Sunday Menu 2/12 - Home Fries and Sushi

Breakfast
Home fries (chopped red potatoes, orange peppers, and red onions sautéed in 1 tsp. of olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper, parsley, cumin, chili powder, and oregano) and a Fuji apple with 1 Tbsp. of natural peanut butter.


Lunch
Leftover Baked Aporridgy, red grapes, a clementine, and 2 chocolate Earth Balls. Okay, so this stuff was good yesterday... re-heated, not so much. The slight gumminess pretty much turned into paste. If I make it again, I'll halve the recipe. It doesn't make for good leftovers.

Dinner
Sushi! I pretty much just followed this tutorial, and after one or two botched rolls (which you will not, of course, see below) I got the hang of it. The filling was marinated and sautéed tempeh and carrots. It was pretty tasty, I have to say. And surprisingly filling for its size. I'm taking leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I hope sushi keeps better than the porridge paste from yesterday.




Snack
1/2 oz. of almonds.
1 1/2 Tbsp. of chocolate chips.
2 fudge-mint cookies.

I was feeling very snacky this evening for some reason. I think because the sushi, while filling, just wasn't very satisfying for some reason. I think it'll make a better lunch than dinner.

This looks very nice.

Great quality pictures, too!

Both look incredible. I am very impressed at not only the sushi skills but the use of tempeh! And red potatoes, it's been months since I had those.

how fortuitous, I just this past weekend bought a bamboo sushi rolling mat and rice paddle. And that sushi tutorial is great, thanks for posting that. I think I'll have a go at this sometime soon!

Thanks for the inspiration.

harmonia - Thanks! Taking pictures of my food has become as much fun as eating it. :)

jess - Making the sushi was easier than I thought it would be... after a few botched rolls, that is. I tried veggie-only rolls and didn't like them as much, so tempeh came to the rescue. As always. I love tempeh!

ms. mercedes - You should definitely have a go at it, especially since you have the supplies. I want real sushi-making stuff now... I have neither rolling mat not paddle. I bet they make things a little easier.

I'm really glad you liked my tutorial. Your sushi rolls are lovely! :)
