Snoball Maki


This is another roll from Mobo Sushi. We weren’t able to try this while we were there, but we grabbed a take-out copy of the menu and decided to make this at home. This was an interesting roll. Use just a little bit of coconut, or it will overwhelm the roll. Also, Son says it needed to be a little saltier (but of course, he pours salt on everything, so it was probably just right) so he says eating it with shoyu is good.

I really hope none of you are having to be displaced or anything because of the stupid fires here. It’s rediculous how much of Southern California has been burning the past few days. Yuck. I’m several miles from the closest fire to me, so I don’t have to evacuate or anything, and my family is far from any of the fires, so we aren’t directly effected by the fires. But seriously… the weather sucks right now. It’s been super hot and dry and windy (99 degrees yesterday! And I’m close-ish to the beach!)… perfect fire weather. Plus with the ashes… I don’t mean to complain and all, but having to walk to school in the ashes coming down like snow, and with asthma of all things! Yuck. At least my tennis classes have been cancelled – there’s no way in heck I could possibly play in this weather!

    Oh, I heard about those fires on the news.
    Weather sucks here too.
    Some girl in Christchurch was BLOWN in front of a bus by her bike.
    Nothing to do with it really.
    But still terrible.
    She died too.

    By the way, this looks yummy.

    Ralph – I have had the nutrition facts up for probably about a month or two. We got a little rain today… probably didn’t help the fires much, but the air quality is much better.

    Sophie – Oh dear… that’s horrible! Yeah, the roll is pretty good!

    Coconut! Interesting.

    So sorry the fires have affected you. It must be v. rough with asthma.

    And you made the cupcakes again?! That’s awesome! They are very good. I’d like to have one right now ….

    Yeah… but don’t put in too much, or it will overwhelm everything else. Yeah, but fortunately the air is much better now. Yeah… cupcakes are yummy!
