Sushi Dinner at Home

I am only home in Natchez for 3 weeks while being away pretty much all summer, so I tried to cook a nice variety of dinners every night for John since he hardly eats home cooked meals when I am gone. One night, we had sushi and miso soup. I found some dried squid in the cupboard and I served them too. John loves them and asked where I got them from.
 
 
Oh BTW, did you notice the fireplace mantel in the kitchen? It used to be brown and I painted it using Annie Sloan's chalk paint "Cream" color. It has a very slight very pale yellow tinge.

 
I used a plain square (or is that more like a trapezoid?) white ceramic plate chargers under the sushi plates and saucer.





Japanese warriors I pulled out of the bookshelves and an orchid borrowed from the family room are perfect for this table.
I have bamboo placemats but I moved them from their original location and I could not remember where. I am having a senior moment:-) Anyway, I saw these weaved ones in the garage and they work well and I like them too.
I just made California rolls.
Embroidered monogrammed napkins.
Chopsticks on a celadon fish chopstick rest.
 
 
 
Napkins and Celedon soup bowls with miso soup.

 
 


My ceramic cow is special. She serves soy sauce instead of milk.

 

Celedon tea set and a Japanese girl figurine I bought from Horchow many years ago.
 
Asian tea cups are always smaller.
 
Thank you so much for stopping by. And thank you to the hostesses of these fun memes.

The fireplace mantel looks very good the way you painted it, and I must say, I like the carved backs of the dining chairs. Plus of course the warrior and lady statues. We like sushi too.

Beautiful Christine; I adore the oriental dishes and of course the lovely, lovely figurines! The food sounds marvelous and I too love Sushi. I can't believe all you do, moving around from Florida one day and the next back home with John.
We are going to stay with the girls next week as their parents are going on business to Colombia...I can't wait!
Hugs,
FABBY

I love the celadon teaset! I am not much of a sushi fan, but my husband and kids love it, so when we get together it is often on the menu at the restaurant we choose. Lovely table as usual! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

First of all, I love the colour of your fireplace mantel! I like how you used the cow creamer for the sauce and the square dishes are wonderful. You always set a fabulous table, Christine. Thank you for sharing with us and stopping by for tea.

Blessings,
