This past weekend the kids were at my parents’. In fact, we just got them back yesterday afternoon! It was a really relaxing time for Robert and I. We slept a lot, hiked a little, hung out in the back valley, watched a lot of Gilmore Girls (me) and Netflix movies (Robert). We also had a couple of “date nights” at home! Friday night we had steak, potatoes, and salad. Saturday night we had homemade sushi! It was fun experimenting! I am officially hooked on homemade sushi! I tried some sushi at a restaurant yesterday and it was terrible!
We took the Jeep into the back valley and got out a few times to hike around. The plan was to camp out there, but it was SO hot that we decided to come back home. We stopped at a cabin and spent some time there.
We used this recipe for homemade sushi: Smoked Salmon Philadelphia Rolls. I used the Alton Brown recipe for sushi rice and it turned out perfect! We loved it so much (and had the ingredients for it) that we made more last night! I have some leftover for lunch tomorrow, and I cannot wait to eat it tomorrow!
I’m so thankful to my parents for taking the kids for days at a time. We regularly get time to ourselves and it is really good for our marriage!
