I'm Occasionally At Peace With Opting For Convenience In The Kitchen


One of our local grocery stores has a fabulous eatery inside. They make homemade pizza, grinders, fried seafood, chicken tenders, etc. They have a location at our old home that we lived in for almost 8 years. They also have a location a few minutes away from the house we bought in February of 2020. 

In fact, on our moving day, we fed everyone with pizza and grinders made fresh from this grocery store. 

Shortly after we bought our house, Lisa mentioned that they added a fresh sushi section. They hired a chef to make sushi. That's it. Made fresh. Throughout the day. I was a bit skeptical. 


Lisa ran a couple of errands. When she got home, she surprised me with a couple of selections of freshly made sushi. I'm not going to lie. I was immediately hooked. It was love at first bite. 

To back up a bit, I had always taken pride in the fact that when I craved sushi, I could make my own. Like this. 

And, this...

You should also know that we only eat vegetarian and California roll sushi. Neither one of us likes raw fish or fish eggs. 

Lisa appreciates my homemade sushi but with the nori on the outside, there was an odor that hit her nose before the sushi hit her mouth. She didn't like that. I understood where she was coming from. 

I stopped making it because it's a lot of work and I'm the only one who eats it. 

The sushi from our local grocery store is different. The rice is on the outside. Lisa tried one and liked it. 

That. Was. A. Big. Deal.

Could I learn how to master make this type of sushi? Absolutely! Do I want to? Eventually. 


Not right now. 

This is one of those rare moments when I will happily opt for convenience. I don't often do this, but on rare occasions, I do. 

I'm okay with that.
