It's not always about sewing around here.
The hubs and I had a date at home and made sushi. You see, I think his love of sushi is bordering on addiction. He used to travel frequently in his old position at work and went out for sushi on pretty much every trip. He knew he had to eat it away from home because I wasn't willing to go out to sushi with him. Times have changed. I'm not addicted like he is, but I am a willing participant. I even tried raw tuna.
We had our Christmas early. This has become a tradition since having kids. It's nice to set aside a night and exchange gifts without the kids around and the craziness of Christmas morning. He gave me tickets to Wicked, which I'm all sorts of excited about. I gave him eight place settings and two serving platters to host sushi parties. Never did I imagine I'd buy the hubs dishes for Christmas. He loves them. He also recently treated himself to a sushi class and is excited to try out all his new ideas. Our Christmas Eve dinner plans consist of several sushi rolls, some scallops, and peel and eat shrimp. (Right about now my mom is wishing she was spending Christmas with my sister who is probably cooking something normal like ham.)
Tuna--He found a local place that sells sushi-grade fish.
My contribution to dinner was Crab Rangoon. My recipe needs some tweaking.
And sad little Pixel was following us around all evening. We did let her have one shrimp. Such a sad little, hungry face.
Dinner. We ended up with a lot of food. The hubs was thrilled with the results.
Back to sewing next week. I have a really fun pile of fabric that Mr FedEx delivered today. I'm super excited to show it next week. Have a great weekend!
