Sushi and Sweaters

Last night we kicked off the holiday party season with an ugly sweater sushi party at our house.  Our good friends Greg and Vanessa have hosted several sushi parties in the past, and they are always a ton of fun.  The two of them helped us gather and prepare lots of delicious sushi ingredients, and then everyone took turns creating their own unique rolls.

Our fillers included fresh ahi tuna, shrimp, smoked salmon, cream cheese, avocado, carrots, asparagus, cucumber, sweet potato (my personal fave), and roasted jalapenos.  Plus lots of Sriracha, Sambal Oelek, wasabi, and pickled ginger. 
It took a few tries to get the sushi-rolling technique down, but even the ugliest rolls tasted amazing!
 Greg was the sushi-making expert, and he created some beautiful works of art.  
The night also included lots of fun drinks.  Did you know that the Hanson brothers are now in the beer making business?  As long-time Hanson superfans, my friends and I could not wait to get our hands on a case of Mmmhops.  (Yes, that name is for real.)
Even the guys had to admit that it was pretty phenomenal.  Probably the best beer ever created. 

After everyone was full of sushi, we played a hilarious party game called Cards Against Humanity.  It is basically a twisted, grown-up version of Apples to Apples.  So funny, but not recommended for those easily offended!  
The star of the party had to be Brody, our friend Matt's new baby lab puppy.  He was seriously one of the most adorable puppies I have ever seen in my life.  He looks like he was plucked right out of a Purina ad! I am obsessed.
Such a fun night! 
To top off a great weekend, I just got word that we have ANOTHER snow day tomorrow!  I can hardly believe it! 

Have a great week everyone!
