Escapes: Try Something New

Pin it button big

August is a month of Escapes, and we're thinking about escaping the daily routine. We get into eating ruts - basic granola for breakfast, eggs for lunch, pasta for supper. Sometimes it's a refreshing escape just to try something new.

Last summer some Japanese friends had us over for dinner and we made homemade hand rolls for the first time. We used sheets of pressed seaweed for wraps, filled with rice and a selection of fish, crab, sprouts, avocado and other yummy fillings. A Japanese burrito bar, we joked. It was a cool and refreshing dinner in the summertime.

What's the last really new thing you ate, tried, or cooked?
