Sushi Night

Friday night is my favorite night of the week for several reasons, but mostly because it usually means sushi for dinner.   Lucky for us there is a fantastic sushi place about a mile from where we live so getting really awesome sushi is easy. Sometimes too easy. We save this treat for Friday since by that point we are all pretty worn out from the week and the last thing I want to do is cook.  Actually, if we're being honest, the last thing I want to do is clean up after cooking.  Our daughters especially love when we get sushi-even though they don't eat the raw stuff like we do.  Their favorite meal is chicken fried rice, miso soup ( even the Little One loves miso soup) and edamame.  They usually have a couple pieces of veggie sushi too.

My favorite is the volcano roll - I love anything spicy!

I like to share the volcano roll with my husband and get a veggie combo to go with my meal.  This way I can share with my daughters.  The Little One and Big One eat the avocado rolls and the Middle One likes the cucumber roll.  (The Little One doesn't eat the wrapper though.)

All of us girls get Miso soup with ours. 
Not the prettiest picture but it was so good!
And no sushi dinner is complete without an order of edamame, at least in my opinion.

Doesn't that just look so good? 

Nothing says TGIF like an ice cold Sam Adams.  

There is no better way to wrap up the week than with a no stress dinner. While I do love to cook and most of our meals are homemade, it is nice to get a break. Now I am ready to face the rest of my weekend, and I don't even have to do the dishes first! 

What is your favorite type of sushi?  Or if you don't eat sushi, what is your favorite takeout?
