my kids love sushi, well not all types. their favourites are tomagoyaki , hot dog and inari sushi. i have wanted to make these sushi as bento for them for the longest time, but was afraid that i may take longer than the 30-40 minutes i have in the morning. alas, i did it !
i mentally went through the steps of cooking the night before -
wake up as soon as the alarm rings at 6.00am. normally, i would cheat another 5 -10 minutes of extra Zzzz … =)
- wash and soak rice ( i could do this the night before)
- take tofu out (inari from fridge)
- prepare breakfast for s
- steam rice
- cook tomagoyaki
- prepare sushi rice
- cut nori strip
- make sushi
- put sushi in bento box
- get out of the house before 7am!
you can find my tried and tested sushi and tomagoyaki recipe here.
yes i made it, but not tomagoyaki sushi, it’s more like OMELETTE sushi! lol! =)I must confess i didnt have the patience to wait and roll the egg x 4 times. i cooked all the eggs at once, folded half and then to quarters, thinking it’s still four times/layers. what was i thinking, haha….. big mistake! there is no shortcut!
anyway enough of my stupidity, here it is, omelette sushi and inari sushi, that looked like inari sushi., albeit a mini one, they are cheaper! =)
i have a little time to do a mini ‘makeover’ for k’s sushi.
i wont be making kids bentos till next monday. they are now on home based learning assignments, i.e.,download worksheets from home and contact teacher via internet. how cool is that? this is an annual rehearsal in case of emergency that all children cannot attend school.
last 2 days to register for the lucky draw if you have not done so! =)
