Hey everyone! I am so excited! I found sushi rice available at a local store that I frequent and it’s grown in the USA! 😀 😀 😀 I know that sushi rice is available at Trader Joes or online, however I am not willing to drive a half hour away to buy this one item or pay someone online to use their fuel to cart it to me. Therefore by buying locally available items I am reducing waste and pollution by supporting local stores. 🙂
The long grain rice on the left is long and skinny and whiter in color while the sushi rice on the right is a short fat grain with a creamy tint. I haven’t had a chance to cook with it yet so I cannot say anything about flavor or texture. I am hoping to have my sisters over soon to make some more Japanese dishes from my cookbook. We had done that early last year and it was a lot of fun!
My other find is Oolong tea! None of the stores in my area have carried this type of tea in any brand and I found this at the same place I bought my rice. 🙂 I also haven’t brewed a cup of this yet to compare to my regular green tea…
Diet conscious people online have touted it to be the ultimate green tea and really helps with weight loss. I don’t believe those claims -however I am looking forward to trying a new tea.
That’s all for tonight!
Thanks for reading!
