Sushi that Comes in the Dark of Night

Q-ster has been cooking up a storm with his new gear and toy food. We’re thrilled to have intermittent breaks from “shooting bad guys” and “let’s fight!” We returned from work on Friday to find him presiding over an elaborate banquet, complete with a layer cake made from wooden blocks. When I asked him about it, he noted that there were four place settings, one for Mommy, Daddy, Buster, and himself.

I picked up sushi for dinner tonight, and the little dude chowed down. He’s started to want to know the proper names of things, so we pointed out the ninjin (carrot), kappa (cucumber), kurumi (walnut), and so forth, and he carefully paid attention, munching along with the clever little practice chopsticks that my folks sent up last year.

Later in the meal, “More ninja rolls, please.”

You've been warned - be careful of that stealthy sushi!

Nice table setting, clever kid.

Love the play sushi!

Not so sure about the ninja rolls. I like my food, you know, docile and predictable. :)

I bought that Melissa & Doug sushi set for my husband! (The big sushi-eater in this house.)
