My husband and I love sushi and the boys are always so intrigued by this delicious Japanese cuisine.  My oldest son tried a simple California roll the other day and loved it, but he wasn’t quite ready to try the more exotic rolls in the spread.  He’s off to a good start at least.   The one thing we did discover is that our boys love eating trying to eat with chopsticks.  I found these great “trainer chopsticks” and knew we had to have them!

Today’s sushi inspired lunch includes:  sushi sandwich with tuna, carrots & cucumbers, plum slices, snap peas, homemade fruit roll-up.

To make the sushi sandwich I cut the crust from a slice of bread.  In the middle of the bread I spread out rows of tuna with carrots and cucumbers in the middle, then rolled the bread using a piece of saran wrap (I did use a bit of mayo on the edge of the bread to keep the edge “glued” down), then sliced the roll into sushi-sized pieces.

The little guy pops off the top of the chopsticks so they fit perfectly into the box.
