Foodie Friday

Welcome to my first contribution to dear Gollum's sponsored Foodie Friday. If you haven't yet had the opportunity to visit Michael's (Gollum) website, Designs by Gollum, please do. You will be amazed at her talent for design and humor. Thank you Michael for hosting. What fun!


The end of the week usually leaves me pretty wrecked and not feeling much like cooking... or anything else. But in preparation for the Darling Bakers' beach party tomorrow, I had to do a little grocery shopping after work today.
Strolling through Central Market, I happened upon the sushi department. Everything was so beautiful and fresh. Ta-da! Dinner was decided. Raw tuna, salmon, and spicy tuna rolls. Doesn't get much better than that!

Lori, your plate is like an artist's palette. The colours are so vibrant. When we lived in Vancouver we could get quality sushi like that. But not here. If only I could stick a chop stick through the screen.

I live in a sushi deprived area, so this was a delight. I'm so glad you joined the potluck!!

This is really beautiful, but I'm squeamish about sushi (I know, I know) Really, I'm not a picky eater, but I've just not gotten up the nerve to try it. But Central Market, is that not the most fabulous place in the world? I feel a trip into Austin coming on . . . Kathy

I love sushi, but I haven't ventured much outside the veggie rolls and California rolls. I love that we can get it here in Florida at Publix. It's always a taste treat!

Happy FF on Saturday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hi Lori! I love cooking blogs, it's like cookbooks, I can't stop collecting them! I took a look down the front page of your blog and my mouth just watered when I saw the scallops - they look amazing. And your teddybear cookies are so cute, I love the pattern on the white one. Thanks for visiting me!

Wow, I thought I commented on everyone's Foodie Friday entries, but I guess I haven't! I've only had the Cali rolls, and the ones with cooked shrimp on top, but sushi is definitely a great bite! Thanks for sharing!

I like making sushi, but not on a Friday night after a long work week! :) Central Market is a great place for take-out. Thank you all for stopping by!!

Cathy said...

The sushi is amazing, with lots of wasabi of course. Yum.

Looks delicious! I like how they are very generous with the fish on the nigiri.
