I know I talk about food a lot, but I can’t help it. I really love it. My love affair with sushi started at 21. My then boyfriend who was much older and worldlier than me (I was dating a guy 8 years older than me) and scoffed at the very idea that I never had sushi. He immediately set out to educate me in all things sushi. Although that relationship between him and I didn’t last, my relationship with sushi has grown from strength to strength.
How do I love thee (Sushi) by
Elizabeth Barrett Browning Cosmo
How do I love thee Sushi? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need(especially when I crave you), by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely(well as freely as one can love an inanimate object), as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee all the better
after death after I am able to eat you again.
Sad right? I know…don’t judge Sushi and I’s relationship…lol
Now that I am back in CT, I regularly get my sushi fix from Sushi X. Sushi X is this all you can eat sushi restaurant that has very good rolls. I am not saying that sushi X is by all means the best sushi I ever had (definitely a la carte places are better), but the rolls are satisfying and the seaweed salad is superb. Every time I go there I get the following items: vegetable rolls, korean beef short ribs,spider roll, red clam sashimi, and seaweed salad. Yummy. Here’s a pic of my latest spider roll and red clam sashimi….:)
Any other sushi lovers out there? If so, what’s your favorite roll?
