Sushi Time…

Wednesday night I took my brother out for some sushi…am I not such an awesome sister? Anyway, it doesn’t matter that I was craving sushi so he benefited; I did offer.

 

So! We went to Haru Sushi in West Covina across the Westfield West Covina mall.

I didn’t remember to take pictures until the first roll was almost done.  I know, fail.

 

Caterpillar Roll: Eel and avocado on top and shrimp tempura inside.

I don't remember the name of the other roll. Avocado on top, spicy tuna and shrimp tempura inside.

 

Sunday Lunch Shogun at La Verne. Treated my friend Courtney for her birthday and Dar wanted to be consoled since the rest of the family is out-of-town for the week on vacation.

 

Kamikaze Roll: Top-avocado Inside-spicy tuna, cucumber, and california roll.

Half the roll had sweet sauce the other half was spicy. Yummy!

I also ordered a spider roll. It was absolute fail. The crab tempura helpings were minimal. It got lost in the california roll.

 

As you can see…all of the rolls have the sweet eel sauce. Mhmmm yummy. I have to because I can’t have soy sauce, LOL.

 

Any sushi lovers? What’s your favorite roll?

Welcome to my Randomness IX

Yes, I know kinda early right?

Last night the Hatches and my friends went to Bonelli Lake to sea-doo/wave runner. I went to the lake but didn’t participate. I’ve been on it so many times already. Oh and Ben managed to flip the sea-doo within the first 2 minutes of driving.

We went to Shogun in La Verne afterward. Yummy….Unfortunately I was so occupied and hungry I completely forgot to take pictures… sorry. Next time, I promise.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Today after church we’re going back to Pasadena for some ramen noodle. Even more yummy

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Tomorrow I’m going to Disneyland! I’m excited because I haven’t seen California Adventure’s World of Color yet! I don’t know how it’ll go exactly since I’m on a non-starch diet (post still to come). Don’t worry, QueenP I will answer your question!

Saturday my friends leave. Sunday the foreign exchange students leave. It’s going to be really quiet in the house now.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Actually, if I remember correctly…I think my mom invited one of her old best friends to stay at our house for a few days. Something about them traveling down here to go to Disneyland 🙂

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

So it may not be a quiet house yet

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Saturday before my friends’ flight I think Danny and I are going to take them to the Promenade… Marc’s idea

Yes with all this food tasting it sounds like I’m just blowing off money?! Oh no, I was on a spending fast all last month and the weeks prior to this friend visit. Also, when they leave I am back on that spending fast.

Oh yesterday at the lake I was hanging out with my niece (2 years old). She was throwing sand into a pile building a sand castle. I was sitting down next to her helping. I would occasionally stand up to stretch my legs. She would say my name, “Melanie… “

Yes Cayleigh? What do you want?

She would point beside her and say “Sit Down”

Ah, kids…
