Sushi for the American Male

So some of you may have noticed that Japanese cuisine is sweeping the nation. Helen particularly is interested in all things Japanese and has taken the plunge at our local favorite restaraunt Sushi 101. While she likens sashimi to eating nightcrawlers, she loves the sushi, the tempura, and of course the atmosphere.

Not so our intrepid 'I'll try anything once' boy Chris. Now this is the kid who is willing to stuff a whole lemon in his mouth, will top a nacho with seven variations of pepper sauce, and even braves himself to handle raw squid to make Calamari Ripieni. For some reason, though, he just cannot get sushi from the plate to his palate.

After much thought, Chris came up with his own variation of sushi for the American Male.

"Mom, how about this. You take a twinkie and wrap it in fruit leather. Then use a sharp knife and cut it into those little round circles. Who would know the difference?"
