It’s the first official Sunday of NFL football, and as you may or may not already know…in this house, Sundays are for football! I am so excited for the beginning of football season; there’s always so much fun involved with football games for us.
Despite the excitement, it was actually a fairly low-key football Sunday for us; Jay and I both had some things to take care of around the house, and didn’t really spend too much time watching the earlier games. That doesn’t mean, however, that we didn’t continue checking in on our football pool picks.
That’s right my friends, I am in a football pool. I made my picks, really have no idea what I’m doing, and am keeping my fingers crossed. So far, my picks are looking about 50/50, but I’ll take it.
Being the first official football Sunday, you’d think that Jay and I would have had our usual spread of snacks and goodies; but since it was just the two of us and we’d been working most of the day, we didn’t really take advantage. Instead, we had probably one of the most un-football related meals you could think of…
Take-out sushi, thank you very much.
Which Cody was also all over…
Earlier today Jay suggested sushi and I practically peed my pants. I absolutely love the fact that he will now suggest sushi without me having to beg him to go and get it. I was immediately sold.
Our order came with miso soup, salad, and a free egg roll; we didn’t eat much of the soup, I devoured the salad, and we shared the egg roll.
I realized on my way home from picking up our order that I had completely forgotten to order one of my rolls. Typically, I will chow down three sushi rolls with no problem, but luckily, Jay shared half of his spicy tuna roll with me. He’s such a keeper.
For Him: California + Sweet Potato + 1/2 Spicy Tuna rolls
For Her: California + Salmon + 1/2 Spicy Tuna rolls (missing: my beloved Alaska roll…)
All of our sushi tonight was delicious (for the locals, we ordered from Okinawa) but I have an issue that I need some of your help with…
I cannot…for the life of me…hold a pair of chopsticks.
I am literally a mess when I try using them. Somehow, I’m still able to pick up about 90% of my sushi rolls with success, but I look like a complete tool while doing it.
Any tips for my pathetic chopstick skills? Please…send ‘em my way!
As for my fortune cookie fortune for tonight…
it was rather fitting, wouldn’t you say?
There’s only about another hour until the BIG game for today…my JETS are playing! And guess what…
I’m excited! I’m actually slightly jealous, knowing that my dad and brother are currently sitting in the stands at the game right now, but it’s okay…I’ll be down there next Sunday.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Question for the Evening:
Please…help me with the chopsticks. Any tips?
