In case you don't know this about me already (shame on you because you should! lol), my favorite food is sushi! Growing up we had exchange students from Japan and they would take my family out to eat sushi but, I never could get in to it. I think the idea of eating raw fish is a really hard thing for most people to overcome.
It wasn't until I met my hubby during my Junior year in high school that I realized that sushi was going to be a regular part of my life as long as he was a part of my life. Joey took me out on a sushi date one night, fairly early into our relationship and he ordered me a simple sushi plate to try. I stared at it for a while if I recall wishing that it would disappear. Neither my brain or my stomach were excited but, I will always give food a chance at least once. I made sure to drench it with soy sauce and then worked up the courage to stuff it in my trap. My first thought was, "hey, that really wasn't so bad." Then I tried another piece and another and now nearly 12 years later, I am a full blown sushi
addict lover. I start to have bad withdrawals if I don't eat it at least once a month. Ideally I'd like to be eating it once a week but, my wallet disagrees.
I think sushi always looks so pretty on the plate when it is served, so of course I had to take some pictures:). No, I don't ordinarily take my gigantic camera to restaurants but, one of my latest photography challenges (thanks to Ashley Sisk's Tutorial Tuesday) is to learn how to capture food. It's not as easy as it sounds and I had to take a lot of pictures of the sushi from different angles before I was satisfied (sort of) enough to give my friend's their plates of sushi back. They were both super kind and let me photograph their food before they ate it. I have awesome friends. What can I say:). Plus I got to sit across from my friend and her adorable son Jackson while I grubbed. He sat through our entire meal and was SUCH an angel. My little girl would never have sat still for a meal like that when she was a baby, let alone now. A great night out to say the least. Thanks ladies!
What is your favorite food and do you also love sushi or heck no?
