John loves sushi. One of the last meals we ate on the day John deployed was some amazing sushi at the mall (you have got to love a place that reels you in with free spicy crab roll samples). We regularly talk about getting sushi when John comes home, too. (Yes, a lot of our communication revolves around food. Our mutual love of delicious comestibles is one of the strongest pillars of our relationship. Especially salt on pizza. Yum!)
But I digress. Anyway, John hasn’t had sushi in over three months. Torturous. And, while I can’t send the poor guy real sushi in the mail, I found a sweet (literally) recipe for candy sushi. I fell in love with it immediately. If you follow the link, the directions are spot-on and worked perfectly.
I used Swedish Fish and Mike ‘n’ Ikes for the sushi fillers. The Mike ‘n’ Ikes were a little tough to cut, but I was also using a kinda-sorta dull bread knife since everything else was in the dishwasher. Next time, I think I’m going to use longer candies (Sour Punch Ropes, Twizzlers, etc.) to make it look just a little more like real sushi.
