I found this recipe at Uwajimaya's site, it is pretty tasty:

Sushi rice
5 Tablespoon rice vinegar
2 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon salt

Heat the vinegar in a saucepan until the sugar and salt dissolve. Sprinkle over 6-7 cups of cooked rice, stirring as it cools.

We made California rolls and shrimp rolls tonight. This was our first experiment.

The wasabi was much hotter than the usual stuff I have. Perhaps it was fresher or something, but Wes (my youngest brother) and I both got a bit lot more than we bargained for. When he asked if it snuck up on me, I said "No, it was more like an uphill charge ending with a grenade being thrown into a bunker."

Well you may remember my recent change to comments on this blog. I thought I'd follow up and show you how this has affected the system:

Fortunately, my anti-spam comment measures are capturing what is now getting through, so I think I'll leave it as is for now…

Today is Tera's birthday. She's one of the few people I've managed to remain in contact with that I went to school with in Oregon (pre-Facebook, anyway). Happy birthday, Tera!
