For dinner tonight we took Adam’s parents to the new sushi spot that just opened on Elmwood, Blue Fin.
My camera was dying and the lighting was low, so please excuse my poor photography. The meal was delicious; I got one healthy roll and one fun roll.
For health, I ordered a California hand roll.
Hand rolls are my favorite sushi order, I love the texture of the nori.
For fun I ordered a roll to split with Adam. This bad boy had asparagus, cream cheese, white fish, massago, eel sauce, spicy mayo, and tempura; I believe it was called the Blue Mountain Roll.
It was a great mix of flavors and textures, but very heavy; if you are ordering sushi to be healthy please be aware that rolls with cream cheese are neither traditional nor low-calorie. They are tasty though! I ate three pieces.
We were given chocolate with the bill.
We took the in-laws to Delish for local ice cream after dinner. It was too cold outside for that to appeal to me, but I did pick up an adorable mini casserole dish!
They were on sale and I’ve been wanting one forever.
My mother-in-law is amazing; she was in the kitchen all day yesterday and she brought us pounds (literally!) of tasty foods. She actually brought so much we can’t eat it all this week! I portioned out the chilli into baggies in one cup servings and have them on a cookie sheet in the freezer.
That’s how I deal with all soup/soft leftovers, once they are frozen they are a cinch to stack and store.
I did a little bit of school work when we got home and I snacked on a snickerdoodle from my m-i-l.
I didn’t actually eat much real food today so I probably should have skipped the cookie; I’m learning. We’ve got breakfast plans at 7 tomorrow so I’ve got to get to bed. Sweet dreams all.
