A Night Of "Firsts"

Tonight was a lot of fun. Instead of going to our usual Wednesday night at Panera's, Marva and I joined Sarah at the Providence group at Reflections Coffee Shop.

Before we headed over there, the three of us went for supper. It had been decided by Sarah and Marva the menu was to be sushi. Now, I've never had sushi. I don't think I could deal with the raw fish aspect. Luckily for me, there was also cooked food on the menu. I ended up with a seafood and veggie Tempura platter that was absolutely delicious. The batter was not the usual heavy thick breaded kind. It was light and not greasy at all. I'm glad I didn't choose the meal because I couldn't finish the a la carte selection. I brought most of the veggies home. I did try a piece of Sarah's cooked sushi and liked it very much. There was no fork on the table, just chopsticks. Marva told me they would bring me a fork if I wanted one, but I wanted to try using the chopsticks.

So that's three "firsts" for me: meeting a new knitting/craft group, eating sushi, and learning to use chopsticks. By the way, I didn't do too bad using the chopsticks.

One of the traveling scarves was worked on while sipping coffee at the shop and will be heading out tomorrow if I can get to the Post Office. Friday is suppose to be a snowy day with 4 to 8 inches projected overnight into Saturday morning. Brrr. Winter is here.

Not a fan of sushi myself - I would have needed some cooked food too!
