Back on the horse, and with some shots from our Christmas “dinner.”
We’ve done this for so many years that we covered all the standard appetizer ideas: deviled eggs, stuffed mushrooms, spinach dip, all manner of bread and cheese… so we’ve had to start working with themes. Last year it was stacked snacks. Two years ago it was all stuffed, well, stuff. This year we rolled everything, and our table was jammed with spring rolls, eggplant rollatini, cannoli and roulade for dessert, and an experiment: two kinds of sushi rolls.
My sister and I are completely virgin sushi rollers, so we didn’t really know how much filling to include. This, combined with our enthusiasm for the ingredients and the anticipated end product, led to two burrito sized rolls of sushi.
