We drove to Chattanooga to hit up Barnes and Nobles. I introduced hubby to the somewhat rebellious world of reading magazines at the Starbucks in the store for an hour and then discreetly re-shelving them once you're done. I had a warm tea, biscotti, and a new copy of Kara Goucher's new book. Hello, heaven. Nice to see what you're like.
I have a Runner's World subscription, so I resisted the urge to read it there but I did read Women's Running. I've never read it before but by far the best part was seeing an ad in there for miss zippy! She is an RRCA certified running coach and also has a pretty amazing blog. Check it out, I promise you'll learn something!
I also managed to squeeze in the teensiest bit of shopping but
All of this sitting, shopping, and biscotti munching make a girl hungry, you know? So we headed over to Whole Foods. Now, there is probably nothing hubs and I like to eat more than sushi. We went all the time in Hong Kong but in rural Georgia the options are a little more limited. So when we tried some at Whole Foods a while ago, we were ecstatic. It's an hour drive away but we justify it somehow. Today, however, Whole Foods was PACKED. They had an Easter celebration going on, live (and loud) music, specials, everything. Which was great for business, bad for us. The sushi maker was clearly overworked and we thought about giving up but we waited....and waited...and got this as a reward:
Worth the wait. I got some tuna nigiri with a tuna and cucumber roll. Hubs had the same but with some salmon instead. The definition of tasty.
I also did something that might disappoint some of you. Whole Foods was giving out gelato samples. Not a spoon, not a bite, but a nice cup sample. I turned it down because it was freezing out but I regret my decision already. I'm spending the rest of the day curled up in my bed reading my new book and hopefully getting mega inspired for an awesome run tomorrow.
Are you a sushi fan? Have you made it before? Favorites?
LOVE Sushi. Had it a lot growing up in Hawaii and then living in Asia. I love cucumber rolls, tuna, and salmon. Not onboard with the sauces so much, but I secretly love tempura shrimp rolls. So yum! I have tried to make it before, tastes nice but doesn't look very pretty...
Are you sneaky and read whole magazines in bookstores and then don't buy them? It's ok, I won't judge you. (My hubby might though)
I honestly thought this was why you went to bookstores instead of just ordering stuff online. Why do they give you such comfy chairs everywhere if they don't want you to stay and read?????
