Fish eggs? Marshmallows? What?!

Wikipedia's definition of sushi:
Sushi (寿司, 鮨, or 鮓?) is vinegar rice, topped with other ingredients, such as fish.

Kara's definition of sushi:
a ricey goodness that I unfortunately crave once every ten days.

Things you don't need but if you had a place for it would definitely find comfort in your home:

I think what wins me over with this set is the little men. They are adorable!

Sushi on my brain? Also found this clever recipe for cookies...

I stumbled upon this website Cake Batter and Bowl!

8 chewy fruit rolls
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 (10-ounce) package miniature marshmallows
6 cups crisp rice cereal
16 worm-shaped chewy candies or 24 fish-s
haped chewy candies


Unroll fruit rolls, and place, with plastic sheet down, on cutting board.

Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add marshmallows, stirring until melted; remove from heat. Stir in rice cereal until blended.

Spread about 1/2 cup cereal mixture quickly over each fruit roll, leav

ing a 1-inch border on 1 long side. Arrange 2 worm-shaped candies or 3 fish-shaped candies lengthwise down center of cereal mixture.

Roll up, starting at side without border. Press to seal securely. Repeat

procedure with remaining fruit rolls, cereal mixture, and candies.

Cut each roll into 4 slices. Serve with chopsticks, if desired. if you don't like sweets, this isn't the recipe for you :) But for me, its heaven! Though I still enjoy soy sauce and shrimp in my sushi!!!

As a student of mine says it- Sue-seeeeeeeeee!!!

In addition to candy sushi, real sushi men sets, there are also wooden sushi sets! How wonderful! Now you can introduce your little Mini Me to sushi at an infant age!

This wooden sushi set, created by Melissa & Doug (my favorite toy maker!), is absolutely adorable! Utilizing the magic of Velcro, the included chopsticks allow me er, I mean Baby, to pick up sliced off sushi roll pieces. The sushi roll pieces Velcro together to form a sushi log that Baby can chop using the included wooden knife (!). This is one way to raise a lil Foodie!
