Sushi Night!

Tonight I made sushi for celebrate how awesome my husband is! Salmon, escolar, tobiko and wasabi masago made for an awesome orange, green and white color palette!  Who needs dessert when dinner looks this good?! :-)

The cucumber-wrapped "riceless" roll was my first attempt at this type of roll. Okay, okay, the cucumber was not as thin as our favorite, local sushi restaurant, but, nonetheless, I was pleased with the result.

Beach Picnic Party

Summer is here!

We celebrated the end of the school year with a beach picnic party! The picnic food included starfish-shaped sandwiches, goldfish crackers, cool lemonade and jello "beach" cups. I used printables from Bird's Party to add a nautical element. Beach pails filled with beach balls, sand toys and sunglasses served as both centerpieces and party favors.

How to make Jello "beach" cups....

These Jello "beach" cups were a hit with the children--and they are super easy to make! 
Just make the blue Jello per the packet directions and pour into plastic stemware. When the Jello is about halfway set, insert gummy sea creatures into the cups. Right before serving, top with graham cracker "sand" (just run some graham crackers through a blender until they reach a sand-like consistency) and a cocktail umbrella. 

Have a great summer!
