This past week has been a whirlwind of visitors. After Joanie and family left, Barry’s brother, Bobby, came to visit. Barry and Bobby were playing in a golf tournament together, a first for them. They discussed their various foot problems, put those neuromas and plantar fasciitis aside, and went on to come in third in their flight.
Right before Bobby came to visit, he informed us that he was now a vegan. He doesn’t even eat dairy or fish. Well, that threw my Pioneer Woman cooking right out the window. The cookbook just sat on the counter begging for a chocolate sheet cake to be prepared or chicken pot pie.
I researched the menus of many restaurants and decided that the Blue Sushi Sake Grill in Fort Worth had vegetarian items and looked pretty hip. We picked up Brett, Shannon, Ben, and Scarlett and met Michelle and Miles at the restaurant. It was a fun place and although I do not eat sashimi, nigri, or sushi, nor am I hip, the lettuce wraps were very good. I must point out that Bobby, Barry and I were the oldest people in the restaurant and Ben and Scarlett were the youngest. There was no one between their late twenty-somethings and Ben and Scarlett. Brett says it is his and Shannon’s mission to provide this form of birth control to young couples. Ben and Scarlett were very good. (No, I am not bias. I know that young couple at the sushi bar loved having Ben sitting next to them pointing out the shark in the tank! They were probably very sad when we realized he was not sitting with us and had him come back to the table.)
I don’t have any pictures from the dinner as it took all the creative energy I could muster to find a place to eat that would appeal to our guest and the other eight of us. That’s not to say some people didn’t just end up with white rice ( and it wasn’t Ben & Scarlett).
Here's a video about the Blue Sushi Sake Grill, in case you would like to see it.
