Curry Mayonnaise

One batch of this is way, way more than you need for a batch of the spicy tofu rolls from Marisa Baggett’s Vegetarian Sushi Secrets. However, you should definitely still make a full batch.

Charred meat, a huge variety of banchan, your clothes smelling like KBBQ all the way home... what's not to love?

We're kind of addicted. (We like the California Roll poke the best.)</p> <span class="bigPic"> <img src="http://img.fridgg.com/540w_18640000_75___farm4.staticflickr.com/3730/13498624065_2e05468828_o.jpg" alt="Jus' Poke"/> </span> <p>A few weeks ago, <a href="http://fridgg.com/phuson">Son</a> and I went on a business trip/vacation to Europe, which was tons of fun, exhausting, and left us craving Asian food like crazy.

For example, I got the <a href="http://sushiday.com/archives/2012/10/29/spooky-halloween-sushi/">Halloween sushi</a> post up a couple of days before Halloween, and here I am with a <a href="http://fridgg.com/tag/Thanksgiving">Thanksgiving</a> post a whole two
