    We do sushi night once a week. My little one loves avocado rolls. You could make them with whatever veggies your little ones like. We use soy paper so it is easier for her to eat.

    Ladybug ~ My husband, oldest daughter, and I love sushi. However, I have never attempted to make my own. I am a little intimidated.

    Tara,
    Believe me... if I can make sushi ANYONE can and it makes for a fun dinner. We do the sushi rice in the rice cooker. Mix approx 5 TB of rice wine vinegar with 1 tsp of sugar, 1/2 tsp of salt. When the rice is cooked mix in the rice vinegar mixture and spread rice out on cookie pan to cool. The rest is all prep work (cutting up veggies). Everyone rolls their own... even my 3 year old. You can actually roll without the bamboo mats but they are handy. Just be sure to cover bamboo with cling wrap. It is one of our families favorite meals.

    Ladybug,
    Thanks so much for breaking it down for me. Not so intimidating that way. I do not have a rice cooker, but have been considering purchasing one. This gives me a good reason.
