Vegan Sushi

Though the very real possibility of having a boy and all the renegotiating that comes with that has pretty much taken precedence over everything else, I wanted to make sure I got a picture of the vegan sushi we made for the shower posted before an actual baby trumps even the idea of posting a blog. Our good friend's Patty and Mary hosted our baby shower here in CO, and last time we had a party at the castle, Josh and I painstakingly crafted vegan candy corn for hours on end because Patty had a thing for it in her pre-vegan days. Since then, I ran across an idea for vegan sushi that I knew she would love given her affinity for Swedish Fish and I knew I had to make it for the shower. While the sushi received rave reviews, I have to admit that I thought it was disgusting (good thing to since it is basically what amounts to a diabetic coma in bite-sized pieces for me at the moment). It' simply a batch of vegan rice krispy treats topped with Swedish Fish and secured with the apparently rare and hard to find toxic green fruit roll-up.
Patty loved them and so did everybody else. In fact, I wasn't able to get a picture of them fast enough but, luckily, Jen snapped a picture of them on her camera phone before they were completely devoured.

Those are just too darn precious! I'll agree that the flavors/textures sound kinda gross together. But I'm sure I'd eat one out of pure novelty.
