Last night, Christmas Eve, the Gourmet Non-Cook, our two housemates, and I set a table for 17 and invited a wonderful collection of friends to “rock a roll” and make their own sushi. A good time was had by all and, once again, I felt incredibly blessed to share a wonderful meal with wonderful people.
Ace and Alicia made plates out of pine planks covered in parchment paper, an idea that came to the GNC in a dream (and which was a dream to clean up–just peel away the paper!):
We rearranged the furniture (when else do you clean in the corners?!) and set a long table:
Joanna and Amanda supervised the peeling, chopping, blanching and marinating of carrots, asparagus, sweet potatoes and portabella mushrooms:
And Peter sliced the tuna, fresh as can be thanks to the Uncommon Market:
Mary, Peter, and Joanna were the rolling coaches extraordinaire:
Amanda collected the finished rolls and took them to the table,
where they were much admired.
With great laughter and toasting we gathered to enjoy each others’ company and celebrate our community of the moment.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
