The Good, The Bad & The Ugly...of Sushi

Last night I had dinner with 3 good friends and one new friend (hi JJ).  We went to our friend Angela's to part get together and part celebrate our friend Tonya's birthday.  Angela (who is a great cook) decided to make sushi and a few other items.  Now I tried sushi years ago and don't remember the experience going well, but Tonya told me to step out of my box (and I've been reading a lot on Lissa's blog about taking risks) that I decided to try it.  Well, you can probably tell by the title how it turned out for me :)

 The Good:  Getting together with these ladies...Angela, JJ, Katie & Tonya.

 More Good:  Doesn't it look nice?  Angela had great presentation.
 The Bad:  Tonya was a bad mama and just gobbled it up!  Yummy, yummy in her tummy.

 More Bad:  Do you see the fear in my eyes as I'm about to try it?

 The Ugly:  My face, after tasting it.  At least now I can say I tried it...for the last time.

And just so I can think happy food thoughts...Rondell made THE best banana pudding the other night.  He used Paula Deen's recipe (here) and it turned out amazing :)
 More Good!

You are a brave woman. I think I am going to die without ever trying sushi. And I'm okay with that.

I am so not a sushi eater! I like my food cooked thank you very much:) You are brave for trying it...and I think my face would have looked just like yours before taking a bite!

OH, that sushi looks AMAZING! Then again, I'm a sushi loving girlie. Lil calls it "squishy" and it's one of her favorite treats when we go grocery shopping. :o)

You were VERY brave to try it! Life is all about taking risks. Imagine, you might always be wondering "what if" if you hadn't tried it. :o)

And the Not Yo' Mama's Banana Puddin'? OMG. HEAVENLY. My all time favorite nanner puddin' recipe. Mmm. Only, I'm the one to make it in MY house. Maybe you'd like to loan Rondell out? ;o)

So no sushi, heh? Its a shame, but oh are there plenty more things out there to enjoy! Cadbury egg, anyone?

Aren't girlfriends fun?

Oh, girl that is getting out the box. I have never had sushi. I think my face would look like yours after tasting the sushi.
I think I will stick with Rondell's banana pudding.
