So Hannah and I had a couple errands to run. I wanted to stop by Tuesday Morning and look for bathroom and kitchen rugs, and then hit Trader Joe’s for a few things. I knew I would be right by Kobe East, that has really good sushi. I had Tony write up his list of what he wanted, fatty tuna being his favorite. Hannah was happy to get a California roll and I wanted to get their Bento box – you can mix and match your entrees and sides.
Imagine our disappointment when we got there and they are not open for lunch on Sunday! So Hannah gets on her phone and googles sushi restaurants, but there are none others anywhere near where we were. So on to Plan B. There was a beef stand not too far away. Hannah and I just stood looking at the menu for what seemed like an hour, because we had sushi on the brain and the menu we were reading had no sushi on it!
I ended up getting a cup of chicken tortellini soup and a “garden salad.” I put “garden salad” in quotes because when I got home, this is what I had:
The only saving grace was that I picked up one of my favorite salad dressings at TJ’s –
But after a few bites, the lettuce tasted funny, and croutons were kind of stale. And the soup had no flavor – even my trusty Tabasco couldn’t bring that around! So on to Plan C! Two slices of my homemade bread, an ounce of Pesto montery jack cheese and the hot pepper from my salad – grilled to perfection!
So I basically paid $5.50 for a hot pepper! Oh well. I am off to make my superbowl recipe. Come back tonight for Italian Sunday Gravy – the kitchen smells amazing right now!
