I embarked on a homemade Sushi Experiment. California rolls only, no raw seafood experiments at home!!!
After work, I ran over to a local Asian food store and picked up the nori (seaweed), daikon (pickled radishes), sushi rice and rice vinegar. Then I went to the regular grocery store across the street to get avocados, sesame seeds and soy sauce. Then I had to go to Walmar.t to get the imitation crab meat. I already had cucumbers and carrots (which I didn't use) at home.
After a little running around, I ended up with a few more ingredients than I expected. I probably spent about $30 but have enough nori for many future sushi experiments.
|The bag with the yellow circles is the pickled radishes, I was told by the lady at the store that they are necessary|
After cooking the rice, chopping the veggies and some experimentation with assembly, I came up with some pretty good rolls. They look pretty professional to me.
|This was roll number 4, I brought it to work today|
We did decide that we are going to frame one of our wedding pictures (finally) as our gift to each other. Also, H decided that he needs a new gun...whatever.
On the TTC front, I am trying to schedule my next follicle scan and IUI, I am having trouble doing so because of the whole 24 time difference thing that is required between HCG trigger and IUI and not being able to get out of work next Friday. I am waiting to hear back to see if they can come up with some creative solutions for me such...oh, well, I don't know...maybe the typical 36 hour waiting period with an ultrasound on Thursday, an at home injection and a Saturday IUI.
Meanwhile, today I have received a call from the local "Creepy" doc that their IUI kits finally came in. I am considering going to him for the next few IUIs if I stimulate properly from clomid. That way he is in town and convenient (sort of). However, they do NOT do follicle scans and I sort of want to see how I respond to clomid before just jumping into the possibility of triplets.
