happy weekend!

I love sushi. I really love sushi. I'm so excited because my rice cooker makes awesome rice. I've tried making sushi before but it didn't turn out very well at all. This batch had super yummy avocado. I want to experiment with some other veggies and make something more unexpected. Vegan caterpillar rolls? At least this time I got the rolling part down.

Only think we were missing was the wasabi. 

And for a late night snack (yes I bake cupcakes at 2 in the morning) I made some raspberry cupcakes. These were sooo good. The recipe was very different from most of the cupcakes I've made. The batter was much thicker but they still came out surprisingly light. They were just sweet enough with the blended raspberry that they really didn't need icing. Although maybe a little fruit on top just for looks would be good. 

Also, we went to Madeline's for the first time. I can't tell you how amazing their food was. Vegan beignets! Perfect fluffy donuts. Waffles, fried "chicken," mashed potatoes and gravy. Tofu benedict with mushrooms on hash browns. Everything was delicious and felt great to eat. I can't wait to go back.

I'm very jealous of how awesome your sushi came out! I just made some sweet potato rolls and mine failed so hard!
