As soon as I arrived home from uni, I set straight to work in the kitchen making yummy sushi for my sisters and I. First...a quick photo before we begin!

As you know from my last post, I visit Yo! Sushi on the odd occassion but making sushi at home is super easy, cheaper and a lot tastier too. As my parents are in the catering trade, they regularly make trips to the Birmingham wholesale market (but anyone can go) and picked up the hugest slab of Salmon for a measly £13, which highlights just how overpriced Yo! Sushi is. So with fresh avocado, salmon, prawns, cucumber, eggs and a hand full of my own home made sesame furikake, I went to work!

We were quite eager to try out the nori heart shaped puncher that my aunts bought me from Hong Kong. Becky, my youngest sister, eagarly punched out all the hearts for me! I also realised that these are no different to the craft ones and I should probably pick up a few to play around with. My sister just informed me that she has a hello kitty one which would make really cute bento! Stay tuned...for that one.
I was also excited to use the sushi plates that were a gift too, unfortunately you can't see them but the round plate has pink glittery cherry blossoms on it. They make the sushi so much more presentable!
