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 visual difference between the widely available long grain rice and the sushi rice is quite apparent….
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!
