Susheep – Starring in Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2

Susheep – Starring in Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2  | Easy Japanese Recipes at JustOneCookbook.com

I was very excited a few months ago when I received an invite to participate in creating a Foodimal for Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2.  I know there’s nothing cooler to my kids than their mom taking part in one of their favorite movies.  And to celebrate, I’m giving away a cool Sony Reader courtesy of Sony Pictures today!

My kids love children’s animated movies, especially my son who will recite entire scenes for you after watching a movie.  With Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, his favorite scene was the spaghetti tornado and he would tell the entire scene whenever we have spaghetti at home.

You can watch the Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 trailer at their Facebook page (Click here).  The preview is children friendly in case you have little ones and want to share it with them.

I made one of Foodimals from the movie, Susheep, using shrimp, cucumber, carrot, avocado, and imitation crab wrapped around nori sheet in a sushi roll garnished with tobiko on top.
