I have broken bread all over the world, I have eaten fantastic meals in homes and restaurants with some very interesting people.
These pics you may have seen before are from our visit to my wifes family, she had not visited in 30 yrs, my Serbian M in Law and Croatian F in Law had arrived 1 hour before, they traveled from Split by the night train.
I am proud to call these people my family, they have nothing but want to give you everything wrapped up in love. I was and still am overwhelmed by their family spirit, the five houses contained 4 generations, the respect they have for the elderly is was inspiring, this was the first sitting.Click image for larger version

Thank you Tom and you would be welcome, the guy in the bbhat is my bald brother in Law, my father in law Tommo is sitting next to my wife.
Tommo is a retired Submarine officer and a very fearless man, at the height of the war between Serbia and Croatia because they could not communicate with the family in the picture, Tommo just left Split (where they had fled to after the Serb tanks shelled and captured Drnis) and made his way to visit them, if he had been caught in Serbia he would have suffered a fate worse than death.
He made it home after 10 days, he had told Zagorka he was going to buy a paper

Wow. Do you eat all that sushi in one sitting, Tom? That looks like a lot of food!
I just heard of a sushi/sashimi place opening up about 40 minutes from me. I wonder if they have take out, so I could put some on ice and take it home... hmmm...

Also, I have a question about the sushi in the pic you posted. What is the butterfly pupa looking thing that's covered in sesame seeds? And what are the bright pink things that kinda look like someone's tongue?

I still haven't tried sushi yet. One of the local restaurants makes it but I'm such a flippin' chicken sometimes. Although I've tried nori. I don't really get it. It reminds me of fish slime flavored construction paper. Eventually I'm going to have to climb out of my chicken suit I suppose. Everything else you posted looks really yummy though.

@ Bolas, dude! I love how happy everyone looks in that photo! They look like a fun and loving crew.

@ MsMofit, you're pics are gorgeous! Love them. You really know how to set up a plate.

Bolas, it makes me feel so good to see a large family that is so tight together and loving as a family! I can see the joy in each of their faces.

Your food is always so wonderful looking! The magazines use tricks to make thier food look good. You do it with real food and no tricks other than those that make up your vast culinary knowledge.

Thanks for your posts!

pacanis, depending on the person, the quantity of sushi eaten depends on appetite, but as a 204 pound man, when very hungry, I eat about 20 pieces of sushi in a sitting. Small rolls are usually 6 bites and large rolls maybe 8 bites. Most other pieces are very large bites.

Sushi is made to be consumed in one big bite! The ingredients are balanced to produce a blend of flavors that are very precise and must all be in your mouth at once to enjoy the intended outcome!

P.A. G., Nori is meant to compliment other ingredients. Eating it plain is like eating plain mustard. It might be the best mustard in the world, but with nothing but mustard in your mouth, it would be a bit overwhelming and not do what it is intended to do. The same is with nori.

When you first try sushi, you might want to try; California roll, spicy tuna roll, tuna nigiri and salmon nigiri. They are the best for new sushi eaters to try. After you become more accustomed to sushi, then branch out and try new things that are more adventuristic! Good luck to you!
