Sushi Makes Me Happy


Looks yummy, doesn't it? Well, let me tell you, it was. Really. Really. Really yummy!

Gustav took me out for sushi tonight for my birthday, and well, honestly...I can think of nothing I could have wanted more. We went to 'Blue Fish' in Montrose for the second time and were equally as impressed this time as we were last time. We began with the assorted tempura pictured above. Gustav let me have the ONE broccoli. He must REALLY love me.

Then we moved on to the Descanso Garden Roll and the Candy Cane Roll. Oh. My. Word. 'Perfection on a plate' should actually be the subtitle for the Candy Cane Roll. It was delectable.

O.K., so that's not it. That's the Johnny Roll. But they didn't have a picture of the one I wanted! That one does look particularly yummy, though....next time.

We thought of our good buddy Tom while we were eating, and how much he would love the Candy Cane Roll. It got us to reminiscing about all of our beloved friends in CT who would trek to 'Ginza's' with us and sit in the little room behind the rice paper door. Aahh, the memories!

Anyhoo, Blue Fish had some GREAT names...my personal favorite...the Marilyn Mon-Roll. Yep, reading the menu is half the fun.

But you know what made the night truly perfect? My husband. The fact that I got to sit and actually have an unbroken conversation with him. These nights remind me why I married the lucky dog in the first place. These nights remind me how truly the Lord has blessed me to have such a life partner. These nights remind me how thrilled I am that the Lord designed me to complete him.

Oh, I forgot to mention...I got EXACTLY what I wanted for my birthday. A Costco membership. Things become so simple as you age.

Watch out for the churros! They'll get you every time. . . . my kids think Costco is a restaurant. You should hear Amy, "We're gonna go to Cost-a-co an' gedda cook-ey!"
