Hanna Roll

Wednesday, January 20, 2010
So, I tried out a new Japanese restaurant for lunch today - Fudoku. The restaurant has actually been here a while, but it had a different name & honestly wasn't wonderful. Now it's under new ownership/management and it was yummy!!!

I went by my self so I sat at the bar, which is always fun! The sushi chef behind the bar and the hostess both commented about me being pregnant and asked how far along I was. When I told them I was due in 5 weeks they started commenting about how big I was - and actually asked me if I was having twins!!!! I pouted and said I was going to leave b/c they were making me feel bad.

(So, here's me at 35 weeks)


(See Sable behind me trying to sneak into my closet!?!?)


Then the hostess asked what I was having and said that her mother always said that when women are pregnant with little girls the baby sucks all the prettiness away from the mother; that when it's a boy though the mother is radiant and beautiful! She said she could tell I was having a boy. Okay - little redemption there! They said they always guess when pregnant women come in and they are usually right.

Finally the talk turned away from my belleh to food - Mmmm, sushi!! The chef asked me what I liked, "Cooked, of course," he said. So, I told him my favorites and he made me a special roll with all the yummy cooked stuff I liked. He told me to come back after the baby was born and he'd made me another special roll with all my uncooked favorites - the tuna looked so yummy and the sweet shrimp! 5 more weeks and I can have all I want!! YUM-O!

So, he made me a Hanna Roll! And it was soooo good!
