cow's bum and more pleasant things....

well now that got your attention, didn't it?

my oldest has been wanting to drag me off to eat sushi for awhile now.
i told her i thought i would rather lick a cow's bum than eat raw fish. then i finally broke down and promised her that we would go and get raw fish after the show was over. well i really just told her that to get her to shut up about it but she remembered. it's not like the good ole days when she was little and i could just tell her things that she wouldn't remember in 5 minutes let alone 5 days. so tonight was the night. we headed out to the 'happy sumo' and got sushi. i made sure there was no raw eel or octopus and a couple of those rolls had ingredients that were not even english...imagine that in a japanese restaurant...i did recognize the words 'eel sauce' though and stayed clear of that. that should never be an ingredient...ever. well now here is the surprise. i thought i was going to have to eat just big chunks of raw fish like a whale or something....no fat jokes please. all of that raw fish is rolled up with yummy ingredients in rice! all of them. put a little wasabi and some raw ginger on a california roll and that is just plain good. mads has always said that they are a little flavor bomb that goes off in your mouth and i totally agree. imagine it. she was right. it happens sometimes.;p

We love Happy Sumo! Years ago when we went to Hawaii I was afraid to try sushi as I really don't like fish. But now I crave it! Try the seared ahi appetizer next time. Divine! And the eel sauce is quite good! My favorite roll is the rainbow roll! YUM!
