Growing up, I always thought this dish was Japanese. However, it now seems like a Hawaii-Chinese-Japanese concoction. You may need to go out of your way to find some of the ingredients but believe me, it'll be well worth it! Growing up, we used to always have this "salad" at pot lucks. I still make this dish for my mainland friends, who can't seem to get enough of it. I love how pretty and colorful this "salad" looks!

Mmmm....I love roasted garlic. It's awesome!! Roasting the garlic gives it a really sweet and mild taste. It tastes nothing like fresh garlic at all. It's amazing! You can use fresh garlic, but there's something magical about taking the time to roast the garlic! This is a great side dish for garlic prime rib! I've also used this recipe as a base and added leftover sour cream or bacon bits or 1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese if they are available.

5) Dip balls into the chocolate, coat well and remove from the chocolate with a slotted spoon or chopsticks to get all excess chocolate off. Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs. Refrigerate or freeze until firm (about 1 hours). Store any leftover truffles (covered) in the refrigerator.

I was just going to get nigiri sushi but this roll sounded good. It was called The Beauty & The Beast Roll (spicy tuna, creamy scallop, masago, creamy sauce on the top) for $7.50. I decided to try it. I also ordered my favorite, salmon nigiri, and a miso soup.
I didn't realize the Beauty and the Beast roll was deep fried. Sorry but deep friend sushi is so not my thing! I loved the combination of the spicy tuna and creamy scallops but the inside was too mushy. All in all it was an okay roll. Next time I'll just stick to my usual.

I have a tons of pics to print so I'm all over this one!

I'm not sure if this applies at all Safeway stores or just the ones in the Portland Metro area. Safeway is having a great sale on wine....30% off bottles that are normally prices $20 or more. There's an additional 10% off if you buy 6 bottles or more. Bonus, if you live in Oregon...no sales tax!!
