isn't  sushi just wonderful???

I love to make it, but my daughter is the real artist when it comes to making it  look  so pretty...

The Fresh Market sells it  where I live.. and I have picked it up a time or two.. it tastes great, but the ingredient list is LONG and full of stuff I am  pretty sure I don't want.. probably preservatives

I often preface our order (or my long list of ingredient questions) with, "We have food allergies and have to be really careful, so would you mind checking some ingredients for me?"  When I explain it that way, they perk up and listen--they are probably imagining a law suit if somebody dies at their table.  My mother-in-law is on Atkins (she's an A who's still overweight; no surprise) and she says instead of having to explain her diet to somebody who doesn't care, she just says, "I have allergies" and it takes care of the problem.  She treats carbs as if she's allergic to them.

It was late when I got into Houston so I ate at my hotel.  Practically everything on the menu was mesquite.  I ordered the tilapia with rice.  Both items were peppered with black pepper and who knows what else.  It did not sit well in my tummy.  The next night I ate at Outback with some of the people I was there to see.  I found a steak that didnt seem to have extras all over it and ordered steamed broccoli.  I needed that after lunch with the contractors at Pizza Hut in a town about 2 hours away.

I enjoyed getting away from the gloomy Chicago winter into the Texas sunshine.  So there was some health benefit.  I got a dose of natural vitamin D.

ABNoway, I eat sashimi out all the time, and I love to make compliant sushi at home! I mkae handrolls usually because they are more forgiving if your rice isn't sticky enough.  Be sure to ask your fish counter if the seafood you buy is sushi grade!  Typically by me, they only have tuna sushi grade.

I use Lundberg's organic brown sweet rice, it is naturally sticky.


Yep, we buy lundbergh's a lot too.  I love it.  Short grain would be good.  I don't know if we tried the sweet stuff.

Tuna would be fantastic.  I love it.


Ribbit, yeah, saying we have allergies works for us.  Most of the time the places we go the server is cool with it.  But we only go to a couple of places.  A diner by us, and Panera.  After that, I have no clue what's going to happen.  At Texas Roadhouse, I've gotten a caesar salad and my wife gives me some of her salmon to top it off.

If you think it's hard to eat out, try being and A and finding something to eat on the Navajo Res. good luck! I'm working in Kayenta for the next 4 weeks. The best I will be able to do is black bean soup--cooked in beef broth. I'll survive because I'm in good shape and I've lived through it before (and no, the grocery store isn't a very good option, after a 10 hour day I don't feel like fighting it).

Do you have any idea of the prevailing blood type living there?

I really like the Navajo people, and I like working on the res, but they do have an awful diet, even for O's, which most of them are. They have a difficult time with vegetarians, but they are nice about it . They eat a lot of mutton, sheep are everywhere out there. Unfortunately they also consume a vast amount of wheat, corn and HFCS. The grocery stores are full of soda and fried foods. Oh well, the job's been postponed for a couple of weeks. I'm going to try to come up with some really healthy things to take along for lunches, any ideas?

I love to eat out but am very choosy, which usually means a high-end restaurant and that costs big bucks.  If I'm out at lunchtime and I'm in a hurry I have been known to stop at McDonalds for a hamburger and tea.  If I'm starved I'll eat the bun but otherwise I'll eat the hamburger without the bun.  I do put cream in my tea.  Anyway, it's good in a pinch when on the road and I've always liked McDonald's hamburgers.

Ok, birthday is right around the corner and I know I will be going out for dinner. I need to start thinking of somewhere to eat. I am thinking some grilled fished possible salmon or mahi mahi w/steamed veggies. Umm my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I actually like Outbacks grilled salmon. Or the Fugi Japanese place is good too. I could get the chicken with the rice and veggies.

And then Valentines Day is the next weekend. I know we will go somewhere special for that occasion as well. I need to start planning ahead.
