I think the reason I feel so excited about the run is because it was the first long run in a while that didn't feel like a monumental struggle. I would like to take full credit and attribute it to general awesomeness and my fine physical form, but I think the large amounts of white rice consumed yesterday might have also played a part. Any guesses what we made last night for dinner based on the ingredients?
We ate some amazing restaurant sushi last weekend, but it came at a steep price. The next best thing? Making it at home. We went all out and actually splurged on the whole kit and caboodle so we could make it at home - we realistically could have done without the rice wine vinegar, the pickled ginger and the wasabi. But it was nice to have everything to make it just like a sushi restaurant.
Here was the setup at my station (I made rolls - hubby made the salmon nigiri)
Hubby loves the rolls with cream cheese, salmon and cucumber, so that's what we made. I skipped the cream cheese in my rolls - not my thing. And yes, from now on I will definitely be having sushi before a long run. It worked like a charm to fuel those 19 miles. Plus - you bet it was tasty!
Just kidding - I had to share with hubby. Lame. And now I'm watching the Superbowl. And yes, I mean the commercials and the halftime show. All the best stuff. So bummed though - they keep interrupting the quality commercials with football. What's up with that?
Are you watching the Super Bowl? Be honest - for the football or the commercials/halftime show?
Obviously, yes. Also obvious - the fact that football is not my thing. Between Tim and I we understand like 85% of the rules.
Have you ever made your own sushi? Do you use wasabi?
Only a handful of times, but it was a lot easier than I remembered. Next time I want to make it with tuna instead of salmon - that's my absolute favorite. No wasabi for me. Way too spicy!
