I’ve now been traveling for over a week, with this past weekend spent at home. Dad enjoyed the Sesame Salmon and the Shrimp Curry, and I got to enjoy the Ginger Beef and Sesame-Soy Sirloin. I really liked the beef dishes, although I think I’d use filet or flank rather than sirloin for that recipe next time. I’m just not a huge fan of sirloin – even if it is USDA prime meat.
Daughter Person reportedly enjoyed the Salmon, but had trouble picking it up with her fork and it made her frustrated. She tried the Ginger Beef, but again, frustration with picking it up. It did go into her mouth and didn’t come back out, so that’s a success in our book.
As a treat, we introduced Daughter Person to sushi this weekend. We went to a local sushi restaurant that we enjoy, and ordered either cooked fish or vegetable sushi, and shared it with Daughter Person. I don’t like fish, much less raw fish, so I keep to the veggie sushi – my favorite is oshinko, not Daughter Person’s favorite. She liked the rice, ate an avocado maki roll, and played with a california maki roll a bit. She was more interested in the “kid’s” chopsticks we got for her (with the rubber band and rolled sleeve). She’s not going to be using chopsticks anytime soon, but she was able to pick a few things up by clamping them together with her fist.
