    Back to school today.

    Husband took me to have sushi for lunch. Messed with my macros a little, but tasted soooo good.

    My car overheated yesterday, so we have to do some fancy footwork this morning. Grrr to bad timing. At least it happened in the driveway. I have to replace the radiator on this car every 2 years. No idea why. Going to fill it with coolant and try to drive it to the shop in the next town with my husband following. (Hopefully it won't need to be towed.) Then he will take me to school. From there, I have to find a ride home.

    Maybe it is time for a new car. Damnit, we are just about to pay off the van. Was hoping to save some money.

    That was our main push to get a new vehicle. Honey said he would rather have a steady car payment, than wildly fluctuating, expensive car repairs. Our radiator was $800! At a time we really could not afford it. And less than a week later, it was something else!

    Are you into sashimi, at all, or do you really like the rice/fish combo? I am thinking of asking for that Sushi-EZ saw on Amazon for Christmas, so I can make sushi rolls (with less rice and more fish) at home. I know the girls would LOVE to have a lunch of that once a week. Well, me too.

    Good luck driving it today.

    Went to a friend's sushi restaurant and had something called a poke (pronounced pokie) bowl it is basically rice on the bottom with all the sushi stuff on top. YUM, I just skipped the rice.

    Good luck with the car! I hope it can be a reasonable fix or you can find a reasonable replacement without breaking the bank.

    I always wonder about stuff like that (radiator needing replacing every 2 years). I know for my mom's car, it's just the model that has muffler issues. The muffler has been replaced on it a few times. The road salt around here just destroys them and for some reason, it's worth than a lot of other cars. Granted, the car is now 14 years old (VW Jetta). I've seen many other cars of the same era and model with the same muffler problem. Hers finally crapped out with engine issues that aren't worth fixing and my parents bought a new car (second ever from a dealership). I'm excited for them

    We hit the breaking point with both our vehicles ~5 years ago, ran 'em till they just weren't the ongoing repairs. Neither of us are really "into" cars, don't care about the bells and whistles, so we got a couple of Hyundais that were only a little more expensive than some used cars we were looking at. Vehicles are just not a big deal beyond moving us and our stuff, and we don't drive as much as most folks. (Combined mileage for both, a 2007 and a 2008, ~55,000.)

    I don't freak over sushi. Love sashimi, but figure if I'm gonna splurge, a little white rice is nice. Love the specialty rolls, but some of my absolute faves are a la carte: uni (sea urchin... has to be good quality, but worth it!), ikura (salmon roe, kickass Primal!), and sava (Spanish mackerel, very sweet). Also, hotategai (scallop) is worth trying. Went to Portland, ME and ate at a place on the waterfront (J's Oyster Bar) that had raw scallops: this is OMG territory, big and luscious and sweet as summer corn. One appetizer to look for is hamachi kama. That's grilled yellowtail, from the "collar" area, and it's the fattiest, most delectable thing imaginable. When I do takeout and get the hamachi, you can bet the dog and cat are giving me the laser stare-down. You can always substitute kama for a roll.

    Damn, now I want sea urchin. Bring me sea urchin! Bring it now! And kama!

    If you lived near me Paula, I would have Clint look at the van for you. He would probably cut you a deal on labor.

    Oooouuugh- uni. That is the one kind of sashimi that I do NOT care for. More for Finnegan's Wake!
