Add Sushi to the List

Just call me a blogger slacker...I just can't seem to get this done anymore. Life consumes me, but I would not have it any other way!

As you can tell by my picture, I am wearing a "I voted" sticker, so I'm only a few weeks behind. We had November's Girls' Night Out (GNO) at Kinji's Japanese Restaurant. This was my first time trying sushi. I'm not a fan of fish, but I liked it and I'd go again. There were only three of us at GNO this month...Dawn, Lisa and myself. It's apparently a busy time of year for many.
Dawn is showing us her talent in eating edamame. I've not had those either and can't say I'm too fond of them. It's a food I'd eat when I'm thinking "nutritious, but no so delicious".
The waiter suggested California rolls for beginners. They are a good starter for the inexperienced sushi eater like me. Very tasty!
We also had some weird soup (not photographed) that smelled like the water from boiled hotdogs. It tasted better than it smelled. Here I am with my flaming entree' sporting that dorky sticker. When I saw that I could order something on fire, then I was all about that!
It was called Nebraska rolls or something like that. It contained corn, so that's where it got it's name. When one thinks of sushi, one doesn't think of the state of Nebraska. I liked it!
I love the look on Lisa's face. She's wondering what she's ordered, but I do believe she liked it.
Lisa decided we needed to try the dessert. It's ice cream covered in shell that was chewy. The ice cream was good, outer shell, not so much. Of course, I would have remembered the name of this too if I blogged sooner! ;)

I believe you may have had miso soup - yum! Next time take me - I love sushi!

Amy said...

Mindee - You are probably correct. It did taste better than it smelled, but I still wouldn't crave it.

Looks like you three had a good time.
Wow, what a low turn out. Has that ever happened before?
I have only had sushi once and wasn't real fond of it, but maybe I should give it another chance.

I have never had sushi and not sure if I want to have sushi. But if you liked it...
I would have ordered the flaming whatchamacallit too! It looked like fun!
