Every year the weekend of Thanksgiving, my Japanese great aunts throw a huge Christmas party. The entire family is invited, so it’s a huge day of craziness, fun, and tons of really good Japanese food. I have fond memories of eating sushi and somen salad (somen is a type of Japanese noodle) and watching while
<p>The Southwestern Sushi is a great way to introduce those who refuse to eat sushi to the taste and idea of eating fillings with rice and nori. It tastes similar to a roast beef sandwich, but much much better!</p>
<p>A week ago we were visiting Son's parents, and his mother sent a couple of mangoes back with us. Now I have had mango pudding and mango ice cream before, but I don't think I have ever had an actual raw mango! Yum! They were some really good mangoes, so we decided to make some sushi with it.

<p>Temaki is a super easy type of sushi to make. It is similar to <a href="">maki sushi</a> and tastes pretty much the same, but is so much easier to make! This would probably be great for sushi parties - you don't need a bamboo rolling mat to make it, and if you have all your ingredients and the nori cut up before you start, you don't even need a knife!</p>
<p>Happy Independence Day! I hope everyone is having a fun Fourth of July celebration! Well, my American readers anyways. Sorry everyone else. :( Now don't get mad at me, because I <em>know</em> this isn't really sushi, or even that close, but I'm going to post it anyways! Because I can. :D </p>
