Bacon Crunchy Shrimp Roll

This is very similar to the original Crunchy Shrimp Roll… but with bacon! Because bacon makes everything better. πŸ˜› If you liked the original Crunchy Shrimp Roll and you like bacon, then you are gonna love this one!

Sorry I’ve been gone for the past week… there’s been a bit of family drama what with my little brother being in the hospital and all, so I haven’t had time to post about sushi. No worries though… he came home tonight and there will be more sushi soon! I made some sushi last week so my family could have a real meal instead of fast food and sandwiches all the time, which was much appreciated, especailly by my brother. Hospital food != yummy. (I made Crunchy Shrimp Roll, Inari-Zushi, and Kristen Maki in case anyone was wondering. So yes, Kristen finally did get her Kristen Maki. πŸ˜› )

Also… I can finally reveal the dance blog I have been hinting about!!! It is called NextDance, and has all sorts of tips and advice for dancers, in addition to reviews of any dance shows I get to go see. So go check it out… and let me know what you think of it! I’m open to suggestions and outright criticism! πŸ˜€ Let me know if there is anything I can do to make the site more accessible to non-dancers. πŸ™‚

    Augh, that thick piece of bacon looks so yumm!

    Um, is your brother ok? πŸ™ It’s okay if you don’t want to talk about it, but just let us know if he’s okay !

    Hehe thanks. πŸ˜›

    Well… Uh… He’s okay but he’s not. Kinda hard to explain without telling you the whole story, but I really don’t mind telling, so here goes:

    When my brother was 6, he was diagnosed with leukemia. After 3 years of chemo, he went into remission so we thought it wouldn’t come back. Now he’s almost 15. Two weeks ago we found out it came back. So he was in the hospital for just over a week, and will have to do chemo for 1-2 years. So in that sense he’s not okay, but of course, he gets to stay at home, play video games and watch TV and get spoiled silly by just about everyone… what more could a teenage boy want? πŸ˜› So obviously the leukemia means he’s not quite okay, but aside from that he’s doing fine… hence him being okay but not okay. πŸ˜›

    P.S. To everyone else… I’m not telling you this because I’m asking for a pity party, but rather I feel that it’s only fair to let you know why I might disappear every now and then.

    Sorry to hear about your brother’s medical woes. I think we’ve got a bit of sense of community here after being brought together by our love of sushi so I don’t feel the mention is inappropriate.

    Allison, my uncle also had leukemia…I know how it is. I know it’s your brother, so that’s different, but I know. If you guys don’t find a family doner, I would be more than happy to ask my doctor to test my bone marrow for a match – I know it’s extremely painful, but it’s better than the possible alternative. I also have some friends who have offered the same thing – you have us at your disposal. DON’T feel bad to ask – we’re talking about your family here. We know you would do the same for us.

    *hugs* Aww, that’s so sweet, (the last comment) I’m tearing up here. I’m glad to hear he’s doing well as can be expected, and I agree, you shouldn’t ever feel like you can’t mention something or that we’ll think you’re asking for something or whatnot! And if you want to ask, you should ask… like someone else said, this is a community. *sniffles* I’m really touched (and I’m not even YOU!) by the other comments… I really wish I’d been more active on the internet (aside from chatrooms, but more like communities with loving, encouraging vibes as opposed to the ones I was hanging out in) when I was going through something similar (not the same, though). *hugs*

    Nicole – Gosh… you are such an angel! You make me all teary and such… thank you so much for your offer! We won’t know for at least a few weeks if any of us are a match, but I’ll definitely mention something about it when we do find out. Thank you. πŸ™‚

    Yvo – Hugs are good. πŸ™‚ I’m so very pleasantly surprised and very touched by all the support you guys are giving me and my family… I definitely didn’t expect this at all! Thank you so much… I’m so glad for the sense of community here! πŸ˜€

    Wow, looks very good – must give this one a try sometime soon.

    Oh, and thanks for all the great recipes! Might be busy for awhile experimenting… πŸ™‚

    You have never made this for me.
    I object to this madness.
    Take pity on my poor soul!
    Living on dorm food…*shudders*

    We did have sushi the other day…it was kinda funky…
    But then again, you do spoil me!
