Dinner with Eddie

With Luke on the camp out this weekend, and with Becky at her book club with Sharon, Pam and Leslie, Eddie and I found ourselves available for a rare one-on-one night together.  With Eddie getting into his teen years, we often find ourselves butting heads, so it was nice to have a night where we could just enjoy each others' company in a quiet setting.  And being the only two in the house who love sushi, I treated him to a fabulous dinner of sushi at Pen's.

Before the night was over, we spent over $70 in sushi for two.  Our approach to selecting items off the sushi menu was "yes, please!"  We kind of have a hard time limiting it to just two or three items.  Both Eddie and I are very adventurous eaters.  We had miso as a starter, accompanied by virgin piƱa coladas and Tsingtao beer.   Then, for sushi, it was salmon, tuna, barbecue eel, octopus, flying fish roe, spicy tuna rolls, and a "Purcellville" roll, which is basically a Philadelphia roll fried in tempura batter.  Delicious!

It was a really nice evening out with Eddie.  We talked about fashion and shopping and all the latest trends in Paris.  (You can see that Eddie dominated the conversation.  If it was up to me, we'd have talked about farts.)
