Grandma Louise


My uncle found old negatives in the old farm house my grandmother and grandfather lived in.

(He now owns it and turned it into Extreme Home Farm Edition pretty much.)

After getting these photos that were dated 1940 developed, he discovered this one.

She had to be in her later teens.

She looked so beautiful here. I miss her so much.

Homemade Sushi!


Since Mike and I started dating, we made sushi by hand because spending 10 dollars on a roll wasn't really in our budget. We hadn't made sushi since we moved, so we figured we would make some tonight because both of us had off of work (which NEVER happens!!) Here's our spread: 


We had Philly Rolls, California Rolls and Tuna Rolls....oh and with the left over tuna, we made some Seared Ahi Tuna...trying to recreate Outback Steakhouse's Seared Ahi Tuna...which I am obsessed with. OBSESSED. 

 

...it kind of turned out the same. It was yummy, that's for sure.

Basically to make sushi you need these things: 
Seaweed
Mayo
Avocado
Sushi Rice
Cream Cheese
Fake Crab

Then you put it together like this: 
 
 
 After that Mike surprised me with HOMEMADE ICE CREAM CAKE. 

Sorry for the yucky iPhone pic:


Def will be running this off tomorrow.
