Oh! Sushi!

Hey hey 🙂

Hope everyone is having a lovely night. I just got home from a delightful little sushi date with Kelly! We hit up this fabulous spot in Santa Rosa called OSake. I’ve been on the prowl for an awesome sushi place since leaving Florida and this was right up there.

We shared a spicy prawn “martini” to start. Reminded me a lot of my beloved bang bang shrimp from Bonefish:


And I had a seaweed salad—

A spicy tuna roll covered in MORE seaweed salad 🙂

And then we shared a salmon avocado roll ’cause we were both still hungry after eating our respective rolls:
I love me some sushi!
This afternoon I snacked on a half cup of Oikos + a half cup of Kashi Go Lean while I pounded away on the laptop—

And I think I’m bout ready to take a bath and call it a night. I love going to sleep when it’s raining outside 🙂

    i was wondering if because you work for a winery you get special perks when you go out to all these restaurants? do you get discounts? if not how do you afford the dishes when you have constant expenses? id like to learn from you.

    Seriously, nothing beats good sushi. Looks delish! I wouldn’t say no to shrimp in a martini glass either 😉

    I wish I liked sushi, because the presentation is so gorgeous. I need to make some veggie sushi just so I have an excuse to down pickled ginger and wasabi (and sake…who said that?!?).

    Seaweed salad. So is sushi. Actually, I just love anything wrapped in nori 🙂 So yummy!

    It’s been so much fun for me to be able relate to your Sonoma County life as I have family there and lived there for 2 years myself. Osake is near my grandparents’ house and I have dined there several times. The owner of Osake owns a Chinese restaurant in downtown Santa Rosa – you should give it a try too =)

    Seaweed salad is by far my favorite appetizer at sushi places…and a spicy tuna covered in it? Heaven! If you’re ever in Colorado you have to try Hapa Sushi…yum!

    I love sushi! I haven’t gone out for sushi in ages unless grocery store sushi counts. We have really been trying to watch our budget and each time we go out for sushi we end up spending about $60 and we just can’t afford that right now.

    Seaweed salad, yum! That sounds like the perfect refreshing, yet nutrient rich meal to have after hot yoga (lots of protein, some electrolytes, etc.)

    Sushi is amazing, especially when you find a place where they know how to do it well! I went to an amazing sushi restaurant over the summer with a friend, and seeing the sushi here is sending me through withdrawals. 😉

    Ahhh sushi. I love it! Unfortunately, my husband does not. After three attempts at trying three different places with three different types, I finally threw the towel in on convincing him he liked it, lol.

    Good luck on the book writing!

    It is funny because I had to attend this orientation class for my online course work in Janurary. Anyway they did this “icebreak” of where you had like 20 things on a paper and found out if people like or did certain things. One of the questions was do you like sushi and seaweed. I was the only one out of 20 people who could answer this question with a yes! ha ha

    I love hearing about your writing!
    How is it going? How many ‘pages’ is 1000 words? Any writer’s block ? Difficulties? Write, throw out and repeat haha!!
    Interesting to hear about your Bikram too?
    It’s very ‘militant’. Do you like Hot Yoga?

    I could just eat bowl after bowl of seaweed salad – it is seriously one of my favorite things to eat, ever. And wasabi is pretty high up there too, so sushi places just win in the good food department 😉

    I think you’ve inspired me to have a sushi night tonight!! It’s so weird that I used to have sushi at least once a week when I lived in Boston and now that I live in NY with way better sushi options every two feet, I hardly ever have it. I’m def going to change that tonight!!

    Mmm the sushi looks awesome! I always eat two rolls all by myself and don’t start feeling full until like an hour later when all that rice swells up. Too bad I never learn my lesson.

    there is a REALLY great sushi place in rohnert park called hana. I prefer it to osake… it’s in a weird strip mall and you’d never think to stop by but it is amazing and much better than anything I’ve found in SF.
