Speaking of fish…
Every now and again we get together within our circle friends for a movie night. The usual scenario is that we collectively pick a genre of the movie we would like to watch and discuss, every couple submits a movie title in that genre, we then vote on the movie, watch it, and lively discuss it afterwards. This of course is surrounded by a crazy amount of good food, laughter, camaraderie, and free flowing alcohol of all sorts.
This time around the topic was Japan, mainly because we wanted the main entree of the night to be sushi. And boy did we make a lot of sushi that night!
Everyone invited brought something along for the night. I don’t remember exactly who brought what, I do know Ania made a cheese cake cause it looked pretty orangey-bad-ass!
But it was the sushi that was the topic of the evening, even though there was a lot to be learned about the making of rolls, and shrimp cleaning, too. Nothing a YouTube video couldn’t explain!
At some point there was so much learning and running around going on, I felt like my kitchen was part of some Master Chef episode. I mainly stayed out of the way and made sure my guests were tended to, drink wise of course.
The end result was delicious, albeit a little too spicy as we didn’t judge the nose-clearing power of wasabi correctly. I’m sure we’ll get it right next time around. Sushi took a little longer then expected, and when we finally sat down to movie voting…no one really felt like starting a two-hour movie at 10pm would be a good idea, so we skipped the movie part altogether.
Great fun with a great company of friends. Thanks everyone!
