They had cake. And Booze. And encouraged people to sing 'always look on the bright side of life' and there was whistling involved, which is not my forte. I end up doing a lot of spitting. Over cake. boo for that.
My sister, John (in a poncho... pause for laughter..) and I as my uncle gives us instructions on how to judge the float entries.
On to the eats! This week I found a recipe for a california roll salad. It was MUCHO interesting (or should that be reserved for mexican entries?) how about it was most interesting? Anyway it had:
- torn nori strips
- sesame seeds
- imitation crab meat (i know, i know, it's super processed)
- Jasmine rice (i know, i know, it's white and not the healthier option either)
- soy sauce/ginger/rice wine vinegar
the recipe had some sort of combo for the salad dressing, but it looked/smelled weird when I attempted it (through no fault of the recipe i'm sure)... but i thought this was creative and yummy. Just like the 'ole california roll and it satisfied my sushi craving for days!
- diced tomatoes
Just how I like it, a SHORT ingredient list! Actually this was pretty good, John even liked it (gasp!) We had it served over orzo and had big crusty sourdough bread and corn on the cob with it too.. YUMM.
