Aliza’s site

This is my new blog. I developed a website while planning my wedding; initially, it was to have basic info– where the wedding would be, information for out of town guests (hotels, things to do, maps to get to the wedding venue, restaurants near the hotels), registry information, information about Jewish weddings, and the like. Because so many people were asking me questions about the wedding planning, I started blogging my progress as well.

Now that the wedding planning is over (in other words, I got married), I’m still blogging a bit to the site, some lessons learned, photos and videos, etc. But something funny happened on the way to the wedding: I discovered I really liked blogging. And I realized that some of my content would be quite useful to other brides (and to inquisitive guests attending Jewish weddings). And that there were other things I’d like to write about, mainly relating to my hobbies.

Since my original blog was single purpose (wedding related) and a semi-private site (you have to have the link to access it), I realized I needed to create a public blog. This is it!

I’m still very much in the process of transferring information over from the wedding blog. And that blog is mostly text, so I’m going to have to add in photos. So hang in there, this is a work in progress!

Sushi salad (missing photo)

I’m really happy with this salad; it’s delicious. It’s inspired by sushi rolls, yet is low carb. It’s origin is simple:

  1. I’ve been seeing roasted seaweed snacks for sale in more places, and have been craving them. One of the packages I bought turned out to be strips rather than sheets. Inconvenient as a snack, but I realized would be perfect in a recipe.
  2. I miss sushi. I have to be careful, because the nori in sushi rolls is often dusted with wheat, so I can’t eat much. And, now that I’m eating LCHF (low carb/high fat), the rice means sushi is a rare carb up treat.

Then it dawned upon me: why not make a modified, keto-friendly sushi salad? Continue reading
