Show me the LOVE ( I mean FOOD)...

My daughter Stephanie came home for the weekend from college. She is in her 3rd year in Environmental Studies and is living in residence on campus. Although she thinks the food at the cafeteria has improved somewhat this term, she still misses home-cooked food.....so how do I show her the LOVE? Besides doing her BIG load of laundry, I made her the food that she craves for! First I start off with the fresh salmon.....

then made them into the Maki roll (Sushi). I used the CUTE Janpanese plate that we brought back from Epcot in Disney World.


Next is the making of the Spring Rolls...

 
Eat some, freeze some...



thus, the DELIGHTFUL result !
All I can say is that Stephanie comes/goes "home" happy :)
