Trying New Things: Day 1


Day One Challenge: Sushi

So here’s the deal with sushi.  I have a realllllllly hard time believing all the hype about it.  I mean…it’s raw fish.  Or cooked fish.  Either way, um, no thanks.  I actually tried a tiny bite many, many years ago when I was working at a grocery store and it was seriously awful.  But now every time I turn around everybody I know is raving about sushi, sushi, sushi, so I figured it was time to give it a fair trial.



So I bought myself some shaggy dog. Yes, SHAGGY DOG. To be honest, I found myself reconsidering at this point in the store.  But Jerm had tried this particular one before and said it was good so I put aside my doubts and went for it.

I gave it a fair chance.  I even tried it with the wasabi. I was brave.  And now I can cross this off my list forever.

Verdict: I’ll leave it for the trend-followers.


So seriously, what do you think about sushi?  I can’t help but think it’s just one of those lemming things…you know, like the Twilight books.  😉

  1. Oh man, so glad to find another sushi-disliker out there. NOT A FAN over here, either. (But I’m also allergic to sesame, which is quite often in All The Sushi. So that’s usually my excuse, but I’ve had — and hated — sushi enough times for one lifetime.) Looking forward to seeing your other new things this month!

    1. I’m glad there’s someone else out there in my corner. Everyone I know raves about the stuff and I just don’t understand it.

  2. hahahaha! You are brave! I’m no sushi fan either, actually. I have tried it a few times—I’ve also had friend hold me down and stuff sushi into my mouth to force me to try it…I’m not a fan. I don’t even like fish-less sushi, I don’t like the dried seaweed…there’s lots of other tasty food in the world, I’ll stick to that!

    1. I totally agree. Sticking to all the delicious foods is a much better plan. Like Chipotle bowls…. 😉

  3. GROSSSSSSS! That looks so nasty. I tried it once and no thank you. I’ll have shrimp, crab, halibut, cod whatever cooked and in garlic butter with lemon TYVM
