Fridge velcro: somen salad

When it comes to my schedule, I'm close to neurotic. I have various google calendars, color coded and sometimes, I feel like I'm planning out every second of my life. What can I say, busy is better than bored, right? Hahaha. In any case, I am the exact OPPOSITE when it comes to cooking and baking. I usually will decide what to make that day, depending on what I have on hand. I don't really make a shopping list unless I'm planning to make something epic, with those non day-to-day ingredients. This is where "fridge velcro" comes in.

Sushi. The word in itself scares some people away. They imagine things like super slimy raw fish, salty fish eggs, octopus, or the sometimes deadly fugu. But here, in Hawaii, sushi can take on an entirely different meaning. For this theme lunch, we decided to bring whatever food we thought would go great with rice, and wrap it all up in korean-style nori (seaweed). After the other week's sandwich theme lunch, we reminded each other that we're doing this to save money. (ie: don't buy epic amounts of pastrami from Sam's Club) Overall, I think we have been. We usually have enough lefties for lunch on Friday, and no one's been left feeling hungry!
