The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

Sushi. A post for my mother.

My mom was in town this past weekend and we had a lovely visit. I love it when she comes and we just do stuff together. Nothing special - ran errands, took a nice walk around the neighborhood, just generally hanging out. I enjoy her company. Chad had to work this weekend so I had her all to myself for a while on Saturday afternoon and it was wonderful.

Friday night we had a sushi date with Uncle J. Mom, of course, does NOT each sushi and enjoyed a salad and some veggie fried rice (which she always orders when I drag her to sushi restaurants). This visit inspired me...tomorrow we are having our monthly work potluck. They usually have a random theme - whatever the person in charge picked for the month - and tomorrow is Oriental. Sometimes we try to do all healthy versions of our favorite themed food, sometimes we don't care. Tomorrow we are supposed to bring whatever Oriental food we like to share. I like sushi. But I really like dessert.

So, I'm making sushi dessert.

Rice crispy treats on the outside.
Thinly sliced strawberries and bananas.
And homemade chocolate mousse on the inside.

You betcha. It is gonna be awesome.

I typed all this out because I was going to include pictures - since my mom won't see the goodness on Facebook or Instagram - but Blogger won't let me upload pictures at the moment. I promise, they are super cute. And I will try to add pictures later. Love you mom!
