Sushi Anyone?

>> Thursday, February 11, 2010

I am not sure how I found out about Weelicious but I am so glad that I did! The other day I saw her post about Sushi Sandwiches. Wow. It was like a light bulb went off in my head. The girls will eat a California Roll when we get them but other than that they won't go near our sushi but they want to, I can see it in their eyes! Last night it was an all girl's supper b/c daddy was working so I decided to try out the "sushi" only instead of tuna I made chicken salad. Piper was sure she didn't like mayo so I went light with it.



I told them they only had to eat 3 of the 4 rolls but they each ended up getting the 4th roll out of the bowl. They loved the entire supper! Next time I am going to add more veggies to the "roll". I didn't want to freak them out on the first time b/c then they may not ever try it again. I made a 1/2 bag of edamame and they ate most of it themselves! It is always nice for me when the kiddos eat all their food. It makes me feel like I succeeded, for that meal anyway. Bonus was we ate while there was still daylight left :)



I have been needing something different for lunches b/c I am sick of making pb&j 4 of 7 days a week. They wouldn't try chicken salad before today so this was a huge thing for me. We have issues getting them to eat anything new lately. I can't wait to set some time aside and find more recipes to test out :)

That's awesome your dinner was a success! It is so frustrating for me when I try to get my daughter to try something new. She's immediately opposed just because it looks different. Oh well, you can't take it personally!

First thought - your dining room is gorgeous! Second thought - what a cool idea! Sounds like it worked out beautifully. :)
