Sushi, sushi....where have you been all of my life?

I HEART sushi......who knew?

All of a sudden--Judi is madly and passionately in love with sushi.
I feel so Hollywood. And trendy.
Do you want to go out for sushi? I can really say that now.
And, if someone asks me to go out for sushi-- I can say "why yes, of course, I adore sushi!"

And, I owe it all to my Lapband.
My Lapband allows me be more adventuresome with my eating. Here's why--in my past life--the life where I knew nothing about sushi--if I was at a party where they had a huge buffet of my favorite foods as well as a Sushi Bar--you can bet your bottom dollar that I'd be piling on that buffet food and not even looking at the sushi. I mean--in my mind--I did not like sushi. I never tasted it but that didn't really matter. I had pasta and chicken and sausage dripping with peppers and onions and a huge beautiful sandwich to satisfy my pallette. Who needed sushi? What the hell was sushi anyway?

But now--that buffet table does not entice me the way it once did. Which gives me more time to explore other things---and in the case of the party we went to last night--it gave me the opportunity to get to know sushi. And I am telling you what--it is a culinary delight that I am so glad I didn't miss. If I didn't have my Lapband--I would have stood in that long line with every other middle aged person there and we'd be talking about retirement accounts and arthritis while happily piling food on our plates. Instead, I got to experience a brand new taste sensation while standing with all the sushi lovers--the young, hip, trendy, fit girls and guys. Talking sushi....

Did I ever tell you that I love my Lapband?
And, I looooove sushi.

Good for you Judi! I have tried the California rolls but that's about it. I'm not too daring in the sushi department!!

I'm the same as Jody ...I enjoy the California Rolls and haven't ventured past that.
Hope you had a nice weekend.

If you want to be REALLY hip and Californian about it, you don't say, "Do you want to go out for sushi?" Just -- "Do you want to go for sushi?" --> "Go for" is the idiom.

I haven't gotten there yet -- but you go, girl!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Sushi. Problem is, I go to BOTH tables!!!!

If you ever need something different to take to a party, Whole Foods and Trader Joes and Market District Eagle make trays, and they are not that expensive.

I fell in love with Sushi last August when a new place opened in town. I'm hooked too!
