Why make a big deal out of dinner last night? Because it was so yummy, and because I made it happen on the fly while caught in traffic (a constant commuting state of existence these days) and we quit after a mere ten hour day. As I was driving the hour it takes to go 17 miles from my office to my house, I started daydreaming (multi-tasking, naturally) about the sushi you see below as I was driving.
So I got my wife on the phone and asked her if she would be offended if I took her to dinner at her favorite Chinese restaurant. Her only question was if she should meet me at the restaurant or at home first. When you have been married since the beginning of recorded history plus two days, you learn to do some things well with your wife.
The tray on the left is called Spider Roll and is made with soft shell crab and crab leg. It is so delicious that I order it and something else to go with it. They put a sauce on it that I can't describe, but I invite you to come join me. You too, Puss. The tray on the right is Dragon Roll. If you look carefully, you can see the layer of eel and avocado on top of the roll, and the greenish caviar on the 'head' of the dragon. Even Judy, who doesn't particularly care for sushi rolls like the dragon when I made her a piece that was half eel and half avocado.
The beauty of this restaurant is that Judy can get great Chinese food, and I can get great sushi. Everyone's happy! We both get soup, she likes their egg drop soup, I get the hot and sour soup. We're totally compatible. As a 'friend with privileges', it's a good time to see if she's like to exercise her privileges now.
