in a hurry for sushi

So much in a hurry that I just grabbed what I had including organic carrots, cucumber & pepper from the garden and cream cheese.   The simplified California roll was born.  A little this and that all came together with light soy, pickled ginger, toasted sesame, fresh mint & basil and a sauce from sour cream, hoisin sauce and sesame oil. 
A small rice cooker makes enough sushi rice for 4 rolls.  I don't like them as thick cutting them to half the thickness, spreading them out on a large plate and then a good shake of toasted sesame seeds.

2 rolls that day and then the next and yes, I smile through the morning coffee thinking about another big plate of seaweedy, sesame, fresh, creamy, layered goodness bite after bite on day two.  It is not perfect but, certainly does fill that need in a hurry!

Thoughts on the New Year

As we were heading home from my daughter's a couple days back my thoughts were on goals. What goals should I state to keep and strive to keep as the months fly by and they do fly.
Let's start in the studio with techniques or skills to build on or a skill that I have not yet sunk my teeth into and then a little on home, moving then to social networking.

  • work more 3 dimensional in building pieces up and out using cold connections and soldering.
  • save money to build a 12'x18' addition off of the working studio.  This addition should have room for displays, classes, openhouses, working on very large projects and a reading area with the furniture from my old Gallery.  I am so excited that I could spin!!!  I have started a design board on Pinterest to compose these plans.  This board will get huge as the weeks go by, so check back often.
  • fusing pure silver wire and precious metal clay....perhaps also glass fusing
  • more wire basket weaving
  • bezel work
  • quality tool investing with Fretz hammers, Foredom Flex Shaft, Foredom grinder/lathe, rolling mill and large mandrels. 
  • first and foremost...learn to make SUSHI!!!!!! I love it so much and will go broke.
  • organize the upstairs including restructuring the sewing/shipping room
  • sort through vintage and retro stash for online shop
  • start listing on Atomic Garden Vintage (etsy shoppe) filling it with mid century modern . vintage . retro and reclaimed/upcycled.  The reclaimed part will be salvaged boards made into serving and cutting boards adding to your cooking/serving experience that will grow as the need grows. 
  • list the bulk of every hammered out piece in each line of jewelry I create +++++
