Sushi or Shouldn't She? (40 B4 40 - #4)

October 4 , 2013 :   I decided today would be the day to cross one of the "easier and less expensive" items off my 40 B4 40 list....SUSHI!!! 

While I do go for sushi on a fairly regular basis, I've only ever eaten sushi of the veggie variety which, as Marc never fails to remind me, is not REAL sushi.  Today, I was ready to lose my "Real Sushi Virginity" (Keep in mind, I don't eat anything that swims....even when cooked....so this was a big step for me)

I think I'll just let the pictures tell the story here......

Cute iPad ordering system.... ooooh, sushi must be FUN!
Lovely presentation in an effort to disguise sushi as REAL FOOD.

Me, excited to try sushi and forget about my rain-induced bad hair day.

Hmmmm.....this is not the fun experience the iPad promised.....

Dear God, make it STOP!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't even choke down the small piece of white tuna sushi, my gag reflex just wouldn't allow it.    Yes, I had to embrace my inner 3 year old and spit it into a napkin.  (Hopefully a little more discreetly than a 3 year old would, but at that point I just wanted the vile thing out of my mouth).  It really didn't have any FLAVOUR, per se, but the texture was gaggarific.   It felt like a tongue in my mouth - and definitely not in a good way.   

I think it's safe to say my "real sushi" days are behind me but, if nothing else, I can cross item #4 off my "40 B4 40" list!!!!

Now, what's next????

  1. I just had sushi for dinner tonight. Salmon is my favourite. In fact, I prefer sashimi, which is the fish without the rice.
