So, one day while hanging out with my good friend Stacy Durham, we discussed sushi...Monty and I are both huge fans but Stacy gave it the big thumbs down. Being the good friend that I am, I told her gently, "Don't judge until you try!" With an AMEN! from Monty, I set a lunch date with Stace and let the games begin!
Now, I didn't want to freak her out right out of the box, so I started out with something simple, kinda boring if you will. California rolls and shrimp tempura were the menu item of the day. I am sure she thought I didn't get it, but she totally requested fried rice too! No confidence in the finer things I tell ya! :) So I show up at her door with our sushi experiment last week. You could tell she was trying to be excited but also a little weary. I promptly had her call Monty and tell him what she was about to do. He laughed and was just sad he was to miss it! We sat down at the table and I opened the boxes and explained each roll to her. It's all cooked sister! No worries about that this time!! We took out the proper utensils and soy sauce and Stacy took the plunge and crossed over into what I call "the other side". See pics above. Drum roll please.....
SHE LOVED IT! All she could say with her mouth full of crab, seaweed, cucumber and avacado was "this is really good"! I wanted to say I told you so, so I did! :) We immediately begin taking pictures, because we are dorks and that is what we do. I mean, come on, we have to capture this moment! Who doesn't take pictures and blog about the first time your friend eats sushi....no one answer that ok! We even sent Monty a posed pic so we could prove she did sushi and she did it up right! He was proud and even more pumped that there was plenty left for him!
Way to go Stacy! We are all so proud! Welcome to the "sushi" side of life!
