As a way to eat food I enjoy while saving money, I pack a lunch from home to bring to work every day. Bringing lunch from home is a great way to save time, money, and energy. Brown Bag Tuesdays are meant to encourage you to share this effort and treat yourself to a fabulous lunch from home at least once a week.
If you follow us on Twitter, you may have seen that I had an extra special lunch this week…
This past weekend, my roommate Emily taught me how to make sushi! We made both sushi and maki (rolls) with salmon and yellowtail, and I also made some octopus sushi. Learning how to make something new was a ton of fun, and so was sharing what we made with our friends! We had a huge feast of sushi with a few types of mochi for dessert.
I learned that a container full of fresh sushi is a great cure for the Mondays. I won’t be able to enjoy this lunch every week, but I’m so glad I got to try it! It’s surprisingly easy to make and a fun meal to prepare with friends.
