Happy Belated Thanksgiving (With Sushi!)

I hope everyone out there had a happy Thanksgiving. I didn’t cook, I just worked and ate. We had short ribs and turkey, ginger garlic haricot verts, couscous, sausage stuffing (my favorite), and more – all prepared by the Raisinhater parents. We ate and ate and ate and started watching the Top Chef marathon and some of us almost passed out on the floor from overstuffed exhaustion.

Check out what the Raisinhater brothers brought to the table…

They made their own sushi! I. I’ve tried to make sushi before and failed miserably. I ended up with sticky clumps and torn seaweed. Theirs was totally fantastic. Are you not impressed? Perhaps even jealous? Do you not wish you could make your own sushi to serve at traditional holiday gatherings? I bet you do. Thus, I will try to convince the talented R Raisinhater to join me in an instructional sushi post some time in the near future, to share his sushi wisdom with the rest of the world.

Well now, that's a mighty impressive sushi platter! Kudos to the Raisinhater brothers.

We've never made sushi. Heck, we've never tried it either!

Now that we are in Maryland, everyone tells we have to eat crabcakes. Ick.

Jeff - I love crabcakes! You should definitely give them a try, and sushi too! You can start slow, eating the sushi that has cooked rather than raw fish.

I tried making my own sushi exactly once. After that, I concluded it was best left up to the pros.

But your bros, wow! What a nice job they did on both platters.
