So to make a long story as short as possible, the husband used to carry around a duplicate copy of my ID so I wouldn’t have to bring my wallet everywhere we go. Well, the license expired, I got a new one for driving, but he still carries around my old one for when we’re out. Well, for the first time in 6 months I was DENIED WINE!!! She refused to take it and was kind of rude to us. While I completely understand the legal reasons why she could not serve me, she made no apologies when we said I was 25 and married (showed her my rings – who gets married at 20!?) She was just not that nice about it!
While there are lots of times (especially mid-week) I don’t order a drink with dinner, of course I really wanted a glass now. But I had to settle for Roobios tea 😥
I had a little of my MIL’s salad to start –
The sushi was beautiful!! Unfortunately it didn’t taste as good as others we’ve had. I think because it was chilled. I like my sushi warm. I learned to eat it at a restaurant that serves the inside cool and the rice hot, so I always miss that. I think grocery store sushi in a case is disgusting! But don’t get me wrong – this was GOOD just not great.
Firecracker Roll with calamari, peppers and avocado
Back in Black with blackened sea bass
And the best roll of the night (can you guess why!?) – the Fried Blue Point Oyster Roll with oyster!
Here’s my Round I – a taste of each with lots of ginger (we had 6 different kinds)
And there was a Round III with 3 rolls but I don’t know where it is!?!! I thought I took a photo but I guess I didn’t 😳
I know some of you have asked me how I estimate calories in sushi. I generally try to order rolls that aren’t fried and don’t have mayo-based sauces (everyone knows those “rules,” right?) but inevitably my company always gets them and I eat them anyways and love them 🙂
So my contribution to the order tonight was the Alaskan Roll with crab, salmon, shrimp and avocado (all pretty low-cal and healthy ingredients) and the Hawaiian Roll with tuna, mango and asparagus – both are probably close to 30-40 kcal per piece. The bigger, juicier ones were probably closer to 60-70 a piece (Oyster Roll nearing 100?) so when I have a mix of different kinds I basically just average about 50 kcal per roll and call it a day. I could be off by hundreds, but my goal here is just to get an idea of how many rolls to eat. (And yes, tonight I ate more than my 8-10 planned because it tasted good!)
Oh, and before I forget – Afternoon Snack of a pile of pumpkin topped with TJ’s Fiber cereal and H2H
