new year's eve

Of course we cooked. In reality there was very little cooking involved in putting the veg sushi together.

Grilled eggplant with wasabi cream and walnut miso sauce
A little miso soup.

My mom gave us a vegetarian sushi book for ??? I can't remember why but it must have been one of our birthdays or a housewarming gift or something. Anywho...db and I used the book as a guideline. We had so much fun just making the sushi.

We couldn't find brown sushi rice and I know somewhere in this sushi capital of Canada it must exist. We did find organic sushi rice to compliment our organic veg (for the most part). The slightly chilled Sake was organic also as was our midnight toasting Prosecco.

After all that food I thought I would fast for sure on New Year's Day. Once the day rolled around and I was coffee ready I quickly changed my mind.

Haha, I know what you mean! On Christmas Day we went to my sister's mother-in-law's for lunch and she cooked a gimormous banquet, with several pasta dishes, all sorts of "secondi" and desserts galore. We left the table at 4pm and said for sure we wouldn't need to make anything for dinner. By the time 7.30pm came around, we were all munching on pizza! Oh, well... detox can wait.

That sushi looks great, by the way. Yum!
