It was Friday night sushi at our place tonight. Trevor Dunn, a third year graduate student and his partner Donna, as well as Uncle Joe came over for some assembly line fun at the kitchen table.
It was a smorgasbord of sushi, edamame beans, garlicky shrimp and all the dressings. The funny part was that we all ate so much while we were rolling out the sushi that when we sat down to eat, we were stuffed!
Trevor and Donna rolled like pros and there was no need to bring out the rolling mats. Joe taught us his trick to cutting the sushi rolls - swipe the knife with vinegar between each cut. And Robin enlightened all of us to a new sushi ingredient - mayonnaise?
Trevor and Donna are from Colorado, and like us have a studio and kiln back home. Trevor will be graduating this year and is putting together his thesis show. Donna is a teacher at one of the local public schools here in Logan.
It was great to have the company, and worked out well hosting the dinner party so that we could easily put the kids to bed and still socialize for the evening.
Thanks to Trevor and Donna for the great idea!
