Sushi sandwich…

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.

  1. Jamie this is SUCH a fabulous idea! My son loves “shoo-see”. ;) My hubby is a sushi fanatic! I love the training chop sticks. I think I need a pair for yours truly! :) Oh you are so inspiring with your creativity! Thanks for sharing with us!

    Off topic: When I follow the link from FB to here I cannot comment on the post. I have to go to the homepage in order to comment. Not sure if this is something that can be tweaked from the back end of your blog! HTH

    Hi Jamie
    I’ve been following your blog since it started and am so inspired! I only have an 8-month old, but already can’t wait to pack his lunches in 5 years! ha!

    I have been wondering, would you ever mind sharing what kind of meals you prepare for your family dinners? And if you do the same ‘creative presentation’ and small bites, etc?

    Also, curious if you garden at all and if so, what kind of veggies you prefer :)

    Thanks!

    Do you put anything on the apples to keep them from browning?
