Sushi for the PartyUnfortunately, none of our foods glowed of their own accord. Perhaps someday science will find a way for edible glow-in-the-dark food stuff, but until that moment arrives, we just have to do the glowing ourselves.

I have a difficult time staying with a recipe for awhile. They tend to be short term relationships. I recognized this while making food for the Glo Party. Instead of relying on tried and true recipes, I found myself whipping up something completely new, and relying on tried and true flavor combos instead of a “recipe”. Some of the goodies whipped up:

My mind was also wonderfully inspired for this round of party food by a new cookbook I just picked up: sushi american style, by Tracy Griffith. I choose three sushi preparations to entertain our festive feasters:

A nice presentation aid for the raw fish items is to place your serving dish in the freezer to get really cold. Let it stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before placing food items on it (so they don’t freeze to your dish). Plate up, and your sushi will stay chilled.

Mmmm, off to eat, errr… I mean clean up, the leftovers!
