This is a few years back when mom could go out with us. Most of you know that I live in New Orleans. There is no shortage of good food here! Most of you know that I love to cook but every cook needs a break sometimes.
It was one of those times when I said, let’s go out but didn’t feel like eating at our usual spots. Don’t get me wrong I love Louisiana cuisine. It’s delicious! But I was craving sushi and thought it would be a treat for mom to sit at the sushi bar and watch the sushi chef do his magic! My husband warned me, he said, “No! Don’t do this. My daughters said, “Mom, are you crazy? You can’t do that to grandma!” I insisted it would be something different and fun. Well, my lovely family let me prove it to myself that I was wrong. Let me tell you I was dead wrong! 😂 hahaha
I knew she wouldn’t eat the raw sushi like me but I thought she would enjoy what we would get for take out for her when we picked up sushi for us, the shrimp tempura, but still enjoy watching the sushi chefs.
Oh my God, she got so grossed out she couldn’t eat! LOL. My husband and daughters looked at me and said, “We tried to tell you but you wouldn’t listen and now you have traumatized her about Japanese food!”
