More Than a Casual Obsession...

Just a quick post here. I love food. No. Really. LOVE food! But even with that being said, I never had a food obsession until I discovered SUSHI!
This past Friday, I went to a sushi bar which in the past was on my "decent sushi" list. The chef at the bar was hilarious! He was Chinese, and about 22-25 or so, and was a sushi ARTIST! He fixed me some of the best stuff I've ever had! I barely even touched my soy sauce, because the sushi was so good without it!
I find myself thinking about sushi during the day. At odd hours, I swear I can taste shoga (pickled ginger used as a palate cleanser with sushi). I adore wasabe, though I've never cared for horseradish any other way. And don't get me started on raw fish. People who don't eat sushi can't understand this. I prefer raw tuna and salmon to the cooked version! And not all sushi is raw fish. Eel (yumm - especially the sauce- eel sauce RULES), crab, shrimp, and octopus (YUMMY, though I am told by this past sushi chef that it is 80% cholesterol).
For Christmas or Birthdays for some time now, friends have given me Sushi gift cards. Don't get me wrong. Mexican food is my first love, and will always hold a special place in my . . . heart? And Italian food is beautiful too. I love Chinese, Korean, Southern, Soul, French, you name it. But what do I yearn for when the month is dragging out? What do I start craving when my stomach is empty? What do I spend more money on than all the fast-food meals I've eaten all put together?

I love sushi too. I do think there might be some addictive quality to it.

I love sushi too, and I always feel good eating it because I know it's so much healthier than other stuff! :)

I'm going to have to try sushi sometime. The only thing I've had is a California roll. Babs and Survival Knife are sushi freaks!

Try tuna first. It is the best flavor for me of all the raw fish. Finish with some Unagi - that's cooked eel. Yummy!

You'd have been jealous of my Sunday meals. Sushi for lunch, and Mexican food for dinner.
