Tuna Rolls

Tonight after picking up TB from his 4 hour flight to Mexico. Another story. We headed out for sushi.

MB wanted to sit at the bar again, so we obliged.

After the waiter brought us our drinks he asked if we were ready to order. We said we needed a few minutes. As he walked away MB said I know what I want. I turned to her and said ok then order.

She leaned over the bar to the sushi chef and said “Tuna Roll, please”. He smiled and served her up…for the first time a sushi chef cut it into smaller pieces making them just perfect size for her mouth.

She then proceeded to go for 2 pieces of Maguro and 1 piece of Hamachi. Now there were 6 pieces of Maguro so that was an even split 3 ways, but their were only 2 pieces of Hamachi and she didn’t think twice that one of those were hers.

As TB and I finished up an awesome summer roll, MB topped off the miso soup and was still hungry. So she ordered up another tuna roll.

My girl just loves sushi and her palette is expanding with each visit.

As we wrapped up the evening I laughed. I am in no rush but I want to be a fly on the wall for her first date. She will want to head out to sushi and the poor guy is going to be stuck with quite a bill. I just hope he can pass the sushi test!

Friend you need to cleanse your palette

Posted on June 2, 2010. Filed under: What she said | Tags: , , , |

Tonight I decided to take the girls (Sara and Maddie) out to dinner and let Sara’s parents have a night out. We couldn’t decide over sushi or outside with misters so we decided to restaurant hop.

I love that a 5 and 7 year old pick sushi for dinner! We each got our own roll. Tuna for Maddie. California for Sara. Spicy Tuna for me. All happy campers. You can tell by the photos it was finger licking good.

Once the sushi was served Maddie would have made best buddy proud. She told Sara, “friend, you need to cleanse your palette before trying something new.” Sara hesitated to try the ginger and just stared at Maddie. Maddie then grabbed a piece of ginger and said “I’ll show you how it’s done”. I smiled. Somewhere in Texas tonight Todd has to be smiling.

Next stop, outside to enjoy the misters and a chocolate soufflé. We waited 20min for them to make it and it lasted all of 1 min at our table. Almost embrassing…if it hadn’t been so good. Fortunately, I was able to get a few bites in.

We had fun conversations and just a wonderful night. I couldn’t believe when we got home that we had been out for 2 hours between the 2 restaurants (only about 5min was driving time) and they were just perfect.
