Last night we went out for Happy Hour at the local Sushi place. These $5 gorgeous and generous Sashimi cocktails with seaweed salad got us started with a couple glasses of Chardonnay.

Oh, yum, Kayelle! Looks wonderful.

Kayelle, those are beautiful but all yours. I've tried both raw seafood and seaweed. Have no fear, you will have no competition from me.

Plus another one.

We went over to Loverly's guyfriend's house for a cookout. Delicious smoked pork chops, more bratwurst and Italian sausage, a crispy and cool relish tray, and a homemade (by me) mac and cheese with mild cheddar and smoked mozzarella. Guyfriend had also picked up a cheesecake wheel of four varieties. Himself and I took ours back to Loverly's. *burp*

That looks delicious, and what a great low carb option!

I love sushi, but have avoided it for a while now because I keep thinking there isn't much on the menu I can eat, other than sashimi.

But I would definitely eat that!

They were excellent to be sure. I don't think I've ever seen such a generous portion of Sashimi offered in such a way before. Those were large red wine glasses with just a small amount of shredded diakon radish on the bottom. You would think with so many people avoiding rice, it would be a common option. The seaweed salad is a great option with it.
Maybe you could request something like that Steve, although the $5 HH special is a real bargain for Sashimi prices.
