Seaweed/Nori Replacement for Sushi? Answered

Hello all! I just wanted to see what sort of foods i could replace the nori or seaweed sheets in sushi. Nori never sits well with me and give me terrible headaches as well as stomachaches, probably to do with the high salt content but that is just speculation. I love sushi, but it would be soooo much better if I could replace the nori with something that wont wreck my evening. Any thoughts?

Three of my old hobbies, which would you be more intrested to see as an instructable?

Okay, so I've been friggin bored as hell this week, the park is surrounded by security and police so I can't blow up, or go shooting or anything. (No one got killed though, it's just a bunch of noise.) So I'm planning of doing an instructable of one of my old hobbies, but I'm still deciding which would be more intresting. What would you prefer? Bonsai trees Sushi or some magic tricks?

How could I make a sushi train? Answered

For school, I need to pretend to be a party planner and plan a party for 8 year old boys. The theme that I chose was cars and vehicles, so my classmate came up with the idea of using a sushi train like thing to transport cupcakes around the table. Is there any way to make one? It doesn't have to be an actual sushi train. It could just be a conveyor belt, or a train set modified. But what I really want to know is the cost. Thankyou in advance! =D

Does anyone have any good "food crafts" to do with a group of middle and high school kids? No baking or stoves.

The group of kids I have coming to the library has been asking for play-with-your-food type programs. Over the summer, I offered a "sweet sushi" workshop, where the kids cut sircles out of poundcake, and using fruit by the foot, swedish fish, coconut shreds, and white frosting, made everything look like sushi rolls. I'd love to find more ideas like this one -- we all love to play with our food!!

So what do I do with Sweet Rice ?

I accidentally bought 5lb of "Sweet Rice" (meant to buy short-grain sushi rice.) How is this prepared and used?  The only recipes I find in my cookbooks are for a very few rather complex deserts (and those are for glutinous sweet rice, which I'm not sure is the same thing...)

Why does one of my instructables keeps putting itself back into drafts?

I published this instructable two days ago and have just come back here to create another one when I noticed it had gone from my list. Then I noticed I had a draft instructable, which I shouldn't have and hey presto there it was. I published it again from the draft but I have checked back three times since and it is always back in drafts again. Does it have a life of its own? Is it trying to tell me something? Any one any ideas? This is it: https://www.instructables.com/id/Organic-Seaweedless-Sushi-Making-your-own-home-gro/ but if it is already back in drafts may be no one will find it but I guess an Instructables Admin can. All the very best and thanks in advance for any help, Pavlovafowl aka Sue

The three buttons on the front of the instructables robot, what do they do?

You'll have to forgive me if this has already been addressed elsewhere. I was wearing the very snazzy Instructables robot tee-shirt of which i am now the proud owner and my wife posed the query over sushi the other day, I didn't know what to tell her, lol. Does anyone happen to know? Thanks!

Last Meal

I'm a television junkie and I recently watched an episode of King of the Hill in which Dale, Bill, Boomhauer and Khan get together to make what would be their last meal, if they knew they were going to be executed the next day.  I was thinking about this....what would my last meal be? A Japanese bento with tonkatsu, teriyaki chicken, tempura veg, various sushi, Grandma's green chile, and her black mole (mo-lay) and my Mom's rice......and some Ghiradelli dark chocolate. What would your last meal be? I think I want to get some friends together and do my own "Last Meal Party."....In time for Halloween.
