35 Valentine’s Day Sushi Rolls

In case you aren’t aware, Valentine’s Day is coming up. While a traditional celebration of this lovey dovey holiday may involve a romantic dinner out with a bottle of wine, a string quartet, and lots of chocolate hearts and roses, some of us just aren’t into that. If you’re looking for an alternative way to celebrate… may we suggest sushi?
