More Sushi…

September 8, 2008

I know, SUSHI, SUSHI, SUSHI!  I’m making other foods feel like Jan Brady & that’s just not right, but I wanted to at least put up this one little sushi picture.  After I sliced the roll, I found that the green onion in this one resembles a heart!  Awwww…

Also, even though this picture is of leftovers, I wanted to put it up anyway.  It’s the Pad Thai from VWAV & it was delish!  Too bad I made it too hot for Ethan, so he just nibbled at it until I told him that I wouldn’t be offended if he didn’t eat the rest.  There was plenty of sushi to keep him happy & that meant more Pad Thai for me!

    That looks totally delicious. I have never made vegan sushi. And the Pad Thai is out of this world!

    I’d never thought of sushi as the Marcia Brady of food! And your pad thai looks super delish.

    Sal—I really wish I had made it sooner! It’s not that hard, but involves some ingredients I don’t usually have floating around.

    Jennifer—Thank you!

    BitterSweet—Maybe the next batch will contain a heart for you? ❤

    cindy—It’s definitely comfort food at its best!

    Tofufreak—Yeah, I am big on leftovers too! I never understood people who think they’re gross. I mean, what?!

    Celine—Thank ya, dearie!

    Vaishali—Thank you. You should try making sushi sometime. I don’t even have the rolling mat thing & it’s never been a problem.

    Lisa—Me neither, but last week was hardcore sushi time!

    quarrygirl—I wish I could have shared it with you!

    As to my photography: Thank you & I don’t know! I don’t use any equipment/lights/tripod, but put the food on my deck. Sadly, it’s the place with the best natural lighting at my apartment. Then I set the camera to “macro” or “digital macro”, which is usually symbolized with a tulip, for god knows what reason. Make sure “flash” is off, because it usually makes food look like crap. Then I get really close & take a ton of pictures at different angles and stuff. Afterward, I put them on my computer & save the one or two best ones (or more, if it’s a fancy cake or whatever). I don’t have Photoshop or that kinda thing, but Flickr has a photo editing option that I sometimes use to correct lighting issues (and that I always use to round the edges of the pics). I’m not sure if anyone can use it, or just those with a “pro” account.

    My camera is a Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital ELPH, which wasn’t too expensive. I just wanted a basic digital camera that would suit my poor-college-student/food-lover needs. I really like it a lot.

    Hopefully this wasn’t a rhetorical question, or I’ll feel like a total a-hole! :o)
