My New Toys!

They finally came! It was actually a quick delivery, only two days!

Well, here are my new toys, my Sushi/Sashimi knife and chopstick set!

I just gotta go to the market this weekend and get a bamboo rolling mat for the sushi set to be complete!

I tried to take a picture of the blades to show the symbols, but my camera refused to stop flashing everything. Maybe I should buy it a trenchcoat.

36 views and not one comment? Not even on my lame joke?

Awww, Shucks!

Well, I think they are cool and I'm gonna make an awesome sushi & sashimi platter this weekend with them! (It's gonna be a mess cause I have never made sushi or sashimi before.)

Purdy knives.

How much was the kit, if you don't mind me asking.

As for the joke...I drink a bottle of windex before doing things naked, it prevents me from streaking.

That made my day!

Here's the link: Overstock.com: Stainless Steel 3-knife Sushi Set with Carrying Case : Kitchen Supplies

Check it out, not a bad deal at all and I got the 2.95 shipping thing. Had I waited one day I could have gotten dollar shipping, but, like I have always said, when I need to watch my money that badly, it's time for a new job.

Well good luck with making your first sushi, i'd recommend trying with tinned tuna first since its cheap compared to when your playing with sushi grade fish.

Yeah, if I don't start going to the gym (again) I'm gonna need to buy myself a bro!



By tinned you mean canned, like on the shelves in the grocery store? Isn't that stuff cooked?

I figured for the sashimi I would cut out little fish shapes (about 1 - 1 1/2 inch) in the fillet(s) and make a little "scene" on whatever platter I use. Than, use the rest to make the sushi. I wanna incorperate some art into the presentation of this dish. Show it's more than a quick throw together meal (even though sushi isn't).

I'm prolly gonna use the wasabi to make a "reef" on the plate, cut different size/shape fish and a few starfish, incorperate some chopped cukes as seaweed. Real-life art is a small challenge to me. I'm more of an abstract/surreal type of artist.

I'm also gonna have her be a part of making it. That's most important to me. Sharing the memory of making a wonderful Valentines meal together.

What do y'all think of the presentation plan?

Yes canned (thought that was quite funny no one says canned its all tinned food here in australia), it is cooked but if you buy tuna chunks it can be a great way to practise your rolling just make sure you drain the tuna well. As for presntation sounds good, love to see the little fish you cut out.
