The first time I ate sushi was in California with my in-laws. I was a newlywed and wanted to make a good impression.

“You’ve NEVER had sushi?!” They thought I was from some other planet, how could I have not tried sushi?

With the pressure of 12 eyes on me I took my first bite of sushi…and I faked it.

“Yum” was my pathetic reply, with soft grin on my stuffed face. It was mushy and I didn’t really know what it was. My sweet husband looked at me and taught me. “You have to try to distinguish each of the ingredients. Here put eel sauce all over it”

It helped.

Now I can’t go very long without eating sushi. The Vegas roll is my best friend, Sunshine and The Jenny are runners up.

To be all honest, I painted sushi because I wanted an excuse to eat it. Brilliant right? It was so much fun!

With Valentines Day coming up I thought it would be fun to make a Valentines Card. It makes me snicker, I am a cheesy joker at heart.

And the puns kept coming…

And then the best of all, I totally stole from a shirt I saw.
