I made extra rice last night so I could whip up some sushi for the bentos today. I love those easy press sushi moulds they just make the whole affair so much easier. I rarely use the roll mat anymore. Granted they're not as good for an insideout roll, but then I've never made one so it's not an issue. I'm sure I could finagle it if I tried. (How cool the dictionary knew the word finagle! All these years I thought it was a weird New England term.)
So there's imitation crab or smoked salmon with green onion sushi and I added some bonito furikaki to the rice. Granted, some of the strips I cut were too wide and I had overlap. If it happens again I'll just top the sushi with some tuna or similar. The cup has some leftover ginger-soy turkey strips, with mange tout and red pepper rings.
Bottom is just curly lettuce, salted cashews, cheese, prawns, gherkins and some cherry tomatoes.
Sassy gets imitation crab or salmon and green onion sushi - it's all a mix. Looks like she got more salmon. Crab sticks, mange tout and a side of leftover ginger-soy turkey with mange tout and red pepper rings.
Top has curly lettuce, babybel cheese, prawns and cherry tomatoes. She'll also get a squeezy yogurt which are frozen now and will act as an nice pack for at least a little while.
