It is so expensive to buy, so I've learned how to make it. And if I was able to make it, so can you!

First you have to make the sushi rice. 
You will need:
  • Sushi Rice 
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Sugar 
  • Salt 
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Plastic wrap 
  • Bamboo mat 
  • Toasted seaweed
  • Filling (whatever you want to put inside the sushi rice) I used avocado and crab meat which is a California roll but there are many different combinations
Combine 3 cups of rice with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Pour into a different bowl, whisk together the rice vinegar, sugar, salt, and vegetable oil and pour over the warm rice and stir it in. Let the rice cool enough so that you can handle it.

Over your bamboo mat with plastic wrap so that the rice doesn't stick to it. Then place a sheet of seaweed on top of it and put a layer of rice on top of the seaweed. Next, put your filling at the end of the end seaweed, and wrap up the roll using the bamboo mat. Finally slice up the roll, starting in the middle for even pieces.

The more you do of these the better you will get, don't worry!

Chicken & Dumplings

Crockpot Meal

An easy meal that your family will love!

I like to make this meal on days that I don't have much time to spend preparing something. 

Things you will need:

  • boneless skinless chicken breast (5) I used 5 small pieces 
  • 2 cans of cream of chicken soup 
  • peas 
  • carrots
  • 1 can of biscuits 

Combine 2 cans of cream of chicken soup,chicken breast, peas, and carrots into a crockpot and cook for at least 5 hours 
Then turn crockpot on high and add biscuits to the top, make sure to cut up the biscuits into smaller pieces
Serve and enjoy! :)
