Ice Cube Tray Sushi

So, one of the many many things I've wanted to try lately is how to roll my own Sushi. Well, lets just say I haven't gotten around to it yet. Anyway, I came across this fabulous recipe. Cute little Sushi molded into an ice cube tray. Simple ingredients and the kids can help too! I can't wait to try it. It came from a cook book called Time For Dinner written by three editors from the much missed Cookie Magazine. It has to be great, right?

Ice Cube Tray Sushi
Serves four

7 oz. sashimi-grade salmon, cut into ¼-inch cubes (cooked shrimp or vegetables work well, too)
3 scallions, chopped
3 tbsp. cucumber, finely chopped
3 tbsp. (approximately 5) grape tomatoes, finely chopped
2 tsp. lime juice
1 tsp. orange juice
2½ tbsp. mayonnaise
¼ tsp. sesame oil
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 c. cooked rice (preferably from a Japanese or Chinese restaurant)

1. Combine all ingredients except the rice in a bowl.

2. To make the sushi-rice blocks, use an ice cube tray as a mold. Prepare the mold by sprinkling it lightly with water.

3. Press the rice into the tray squares; use your finger to push a hole three-quarters of the way into each square.

4. Turn the mold upside down onto waxed paper and tap until the squares fall out.

5. Fill each hole with 2 tsp. of the salmon, shrimp, or vegetable mixture and serve

Favorite Fall Trend

I am falling for this years Fall 2010 Lace up boot trend! I can't help but picture these boots worn with a cute little flower dress left over from summer. Or even better over some skinny jeans with a long cardigan and over sized tee. So much fun and a nice change from the tall boots. Although, don't throw out those tall boots just yet girls..... you know they are still going strong. Just mix it up a little with some tie ups and you will feel like a new woman. Pick up any one of these on Piperlime.com. A pair for every budget.

Head Over Heels

Okay people I am still totally in love with the Swedish Hasbeen Clogs. They are beyond cute! I loved them last spring and they are still going strong. With so many to chose from how do you even pick. Although, I think the ones with the highest heel is the way to go to keep it fresh and modern. Check them out @ SwedishHasbeens.com or pick up a pair @ endless.com.

Hello Aromatherapy

Okay, I just realized that I am going to get into aromatherapy. I have seen it a million times, and never realized I should do it. Hello! All those yummy smells that can help with everything from depression to nausea. And to think this whole time I have been trying to find the perfect scented candle! Duh. Anyway, this all started with an oil burner I found at Wal-mart , that came with a terrific smelling gardenia scent. It got me thinking about smelling lavender before bed. Oooo, so spa like. I did a little research . I haven't purchased the oils yet. But , I will be well on my way this week . I will let you know how it goes. Until then here a few recipes to get you started if you feel the urge.
