rolls royce roll

Rolls Royce Roll

This is the last of the rolls that we made from Mobo Sushi. (There may be more later, but this is the last of them for now. 😉 ) We thought this one was pretty good. A nice gari flavor, but don’t use too much or it will overwhelm the sushi! I know there are those of you out there who are huge gari lovers… this one is definitely for you.

We got the shirts ordered! The order was submitted on Monday, so in about three weeks the shirts should be here (although it might take a little longer because of Thanksgiving in the U.S.). I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do about selling them… I want to hear your thoughts on this. What do you think is a good method for payment? I’m not so hot about the idea of PayPal, since there are all sorts of fees and such… what do you think about sending a check or something of the sort? (I would probably get a P.O. Box somewhere, since I’m sure you understand that I wouldn’t want my home address out on the internet for the world to see!) What do you think? Would you guys be comfortable sending checks or something of the sort to me? (I won’t be insulted if you say no, I promise! 🙂 )

    Hey Allison- I know you already ordered, but that’s why I was asking about Cafe Press- though I’ve yet to buy something from them, they handle it all; the inventory isn’t made until someone orders it, and they take care of payment, shipping/handling, etc.
    Did you look into Google Checkout? I seem to recall their fees being much lower than PayPal and some sort of cheapie promotion until January. There’s also Yahoo Shopping Cart but I think theirs is more than PayPal but definitely more than Google. Just a suggestion.
    I don’t mind sending you a check, though it makes me nervous on the point of… well, a live check in the mail seems dangerous (um… to anyone older than me or less technologically inclined than I reading this, I have always paid my bills online; writing checks is something I really really don’t like).

    PS I really really didn’t want to give out my address either. If I knew how to set up Google checkout on my page, or were more techy-with-the-website-stuff, I’d have used that…

    Jen – Yeah… it’s a pretty interesting roll!

    Yvo – That would have been a bit easier, but we got a lot more options in terms of what kind of shirt and everything from Acme Prints. Having read your comment, I did look at Google checkout… definitely the cheapest of the three, so I’m definitely considering using it. The problem is, you still have to give out an address that will be shown to your buyers (as your business address) so I guess we will have to get a P.O. Box no matter what. I pay almost all of my bills by mail, so I suppose sending checks in the mail doesn’t bother me as much. I was a little nervous about sending cash though… I made sure there was enough paper stuffed in the envelope so you couldn’t tell by holding it up to the light that there was any cash in there! 😛

    Ooh! I forgot to tell you- I made inari sushi the other day! It didn’t even feel like making sushi but it sure tasted damn tasty- posted it on the bento site and linked back to you 🙂

    Allison I just made this roll today and I must say it wasn’t anything like I thought it would be, it was soooooo much better. The ginger gave it a special kind of twist. I will be making this one again. I also made 3 other different rolls from your web page. This is the first time I ever ran out of rice. I just wanted to keep on making more. I’ve alwaysjust made sushi out of fish, never thinking of all the different things you are putting in them. Thank you so much for taking time out of your life and keeping up this page.

    Hehe yeah it is surprisingly good! Especially if you like the taste of ginger. I’m so glad to hear that you liked the sushi so much that you didn’t want to stop! It’s always my pleasure to keep up Sushi Day and bring you plenty of sushi recipes!
