almost have a cool color scheme going with this box.
There's the white of the rice in the shiitake
maki, and boiled egg.
There's the green of the edamame,
the cucumber in the sushi, and the oak leaf wrapping
the kashiwa-mochi. There's the black of the box and
the nori wrapping the sushi. So why'd I go and break
the pattern by packing some slices of baked
purple sweet potato? Because I didn't have
any regular Japanese sweet potato, which has whitish
flesh. Ah well.
When I roll thin, one-item maki I think of the
Katamari Damacy games, in which you find sushi
scattered in the strangest places - for example, being
carried around a playground by crabs, or set out on
plates with batteries of the same size.
