Last week I went to Meijer with Cheng and his brother and we bought some supplies for Sushi. Here are the results!

This fine piece was the first roll made. The ingredients included Avocado, Shrimp, Egg, Cream Cheese and what appears to be a chopped seaweed and sesame seed mixture put on the rice. Very delicious, and as you may notice the tail was left on the last Shrimp to make it reminiscent of the "Dragon".

Here is Cheng spreading some うなぎのたれ(Unagi no Tare) or Eel sauce onto this fine Sushi roll. I nicknamed it the "Salamander" due to the stripes of Avocado and Smoked Salmon laid over the top of the Sushi. The inside contains Scrambled Egg, Cream Cheese, Imitation Crab, and Avocado.

Here is a picture of Cheng in the kitchen. I consider him my Sushi sensei.

As you can see, Cheng is big on being very hygienic when dealing with Sushi, as he washes his hands before handling the Tempura Shrimp.

Heaven on a platter.

My favorite dish that day. Cheng made Sushi using both half sheets of Nori and full sheets. The full sheets were used for the larger dishes. The Eel Sauce really works with this dish.

A closeup of one of the platters. So delicious!

And of course the master of Sushi himself!

Google Voice

So I got a Google Voice account, pretty awesome. Now I can comfortably give away my new phone number! I love google. I have them handle my e-mail, my searching, now my phone, and someday I hope the same for whatever else they come up with.
