Less than a year ago, we decided we needed to try sushi, while on vacation, in D.C. We found an excellent restaurant not far from our hotel and walked to the location with our two boys. This meal ended up being one of our highlights of our trip. Since that trip, we have been everywhere to eat sushi in our area of Wisconsin.
Who knew that we would be enjoying sushi like we do. I started slow, with some pieces of tempura. I wanted it cooked. Not my youngest son, he went right for the nigiri, eel and squid and octopus to be exact. My husband was right along with him. My oldest son tried authentic ramen soup. We all enjoyed this new experience.
Since we have been home, we have eaten sushi several times. We have traveled to Milwaukee, DePere, and Fond du Lac so far for sushi. I have opened up my tastes a little more. I eat tuna, salmon, eel, and other fish raw now. I love the spicy sushi! If you had told me that I would be eating sushi someday, I probably would have thoroughly disagreed with you. People change. Experiences are good!
Now, if I could just master those darn chopsticks!
