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!
His family is Jewish and mine is not.
We decided to raise the littles Jewish, so now what do we do?
Well, we do a lot of both and none of some…
So, here’s how we celebrate Hanukkah AND Christmas:
We light Menorahs AND put up a Christmas tree (aka Hanukkah bush.)
Our tree has a Star of David topper and we decorate it in blue and silver.
We have blue stockings (which, by the way, are really hard to find!) and our stocking holders say PEACE.
We read Hanukkah AND Christmas books before bed.
We open presents for 8 nights.
And on Christmas morning.
We have had Olympic fever in this house since the Opening Ceremonies!
These are the first Olympics my kids have been old enough to watch and understand!
It’s been so fun sharing it with them!
Emma says her favorite Olympian is “Katie Tedeky” aka Katie Ledeky.
We have been watching the Olympics almost every day and I have been encorporating crafts, which have been really fun for the girls.
They recognize the Olympic Rings now because they’ve made them and they talk about the gold medals because we’ve made our own.
Here are the slew of crafts we’ve completed over the last 14 days:
This was our first craft that we made for the Opening Ceremonies.
They were quite simple:
Two toilet paper rolls
Painted gold or white (I looked up the past torches and they have all been gold or white)
Red, yellow or orange tissue paper for the flames
And that was it! For my older daughter, we wrote USA on hers since she is working on her letter recognition
