That's the way we roll

Here's a fun way to eat an entire pack of smoked salmon, half a cucumber, a roasted sweet pepper, and half a pound of rice. Oh, and some seaweed.

It's called "sushi" :-)

Yes, the Sparkly One and I made sushi nori and nigri tonight, a prolonged, faffy and lotsafun process that ended with full, happy tummies and no leftovers. It's a proper kind of hands-on eating, too.
