My New Year’s resolution this year was to DO LESS.
I pretty much felt overwhelmed every holiday, even small ones to make sure I was doing “enough.”
Enough themed meals.
It was too much and I doubted that it was any fun at all for my girls. It also stressed me out.
So, instead of stressing out making sure I “did it all,” I just stopped doing it all.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I still go to Pinterest for ideas. But I don’t overload myself thinking we have to do them ALL.
My husband is Jewish from Brooklyn, so needless to say, his love of Asian food is real.
We eat at hibachi places, sushi places and get Chinese take-out.
And after being pregnant twice in two years and not being able to have sushi, my love for sushi has come back full force.
Sushi is expensive, y’all! So, I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to make it for our family!
We had most of the ingredients already: rice vinegar, sesame oil, avocado, cucumber, carrots, Sriracha, mayo, soy sauce
Like I said, my husband likes Asian
What I didn’t know how to make was sushi rice.
Oh, Publix Ethnic Food Aisle, you never disappoint.
I got two of these. They just need to be microwaved for 1 minute each! ONE minute!
This recipe has proved tried-and-true for our house.
I first made it TWO YEARS AGO in 2015. It was a HelloFresh recipe.
I had ordered a box when I knew my husband was going to be out of town.
This recipe was 30 minutes to make.
As a bonus, it was also meat free for Meatless Monday!
I still keep most of these ingredients in my house today (and when I have extra zucchini, I make either this or zucchini bread):
