Our Girls' Day

I worked Girls' day.

I got home with the girls at 5:45.

I had to have them fed, bathed in bed and preferably asleep before my JHS kids come to be tutored at 8:00.

K was working late so I was on my own.

But I wasn't going to let a little thing like that get in the way of a Girls' Day dinner.

I bought a sashimi variety platter, some boiled prawns, lots of nori, I have home-made pickled ginger here and I was going to make egg roll and turn it all into a beautiful chirashi-zushi scattered style sushi. This was to be served with hama-guri clear clam soup.

A pretty impressive girls day dinner me thought.

Unfortunately the girls were not so thrilled.

"We had clear soup for lunch at kinder."
"I don't want chirashi-zushi I want to make my own sushi."
"I only want to eat the prawns. Not the other fish."

Normally I would gently remind them that they should be grateful I feed them at all and that complainers can go get in the bath first- as in without taking the time to eat- but it was Girls' Day and I'm not going to bust a gut making fancy food in a hurry if no-one is thrilled so we revised the menu and everyone was happy:

(Amy wanted her hair tie in the picture....)


Egg, prawn and asparagus sushi rolls (a Fukase original I'm pretty sure...) strawberries, puffed rice, sakura-mochi sweets and it was all washed down with a bowl of tomato soup.

Not your average Girls' Dinner but these girls were thrilled to roll their own sushi and K and I got to eat wine steamed clams for our dinner later on.

A happy Girls' Day all around!

Nothing exciting in our house for dinner either. The'nori maki maki' set was pulled out and they rolled their own!

What ever makes them happy makes me happy and in turn a quite night!
