I Heart You Sushi

I have a love affair with sushi. I remember many years ago missing out on sushi because I thought it was gross.... I obviously hadn't tasted it and was mistaken! Nearly our entire family loves sushi now thanks to Mom starting us out on it mixed in with many trips to Nippons in Rockford, IL, and lots of sushi from HEB here in Texas. I literally probably want it every day. Not sure if it's a pregnancy thing or just because it's so yummy. Due to the fact that it is not exactly cheap, I don't eat it that often. But, when I do have it I am very happy. Today the kids and I went out to lunch with Matt and convinced him to go out for sushi instead of Jimmy John's (which I like to but not as much as sushi). How Do You Roll is an awesome sushi place near Matt's work where you pick out exactly what you want in your sushi similar to how you make your burrito at Chipoltle. I am eating cooked sushi nowadays due to baby boy in my tummy, so today I had shrimp tempura, cream cheese, avocado, and strawberries topped with a crab mix, tempura flakes, and spicy mayo. It was delicious! The kids love it as much as I do and Matt likes it a lot too.

My delicious lunch

WOW! I am so impressed that your kiddos enjoy sushi. Way to go, Mama, exposing them to all of the cultural joys of eating. :-) I'm glad that you still get your sushi while pregnant. :-)
