Stay At Home Sushi Pig

To survive staying at home with toddlers, everyone told me I had to get out of the house.

So...

I went to the All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Lunch Bar.

Wheeeeeeeeeee.

I am out-of-house-good-mom-so-much!

But, wait. What's this? Thwarted?

A sign at the front of the sushi table said:

"Please don't waste the rice when you eat the sushi."

Rules? Tarnation!

A girl might blow her
effing points for the day on a beer belly sized serving of fish if she must also eat ALL the rice.

Ever the CLEVER mother, I ate the fish and put the extra balls of rice on the plates of The Mayor and Rooster.

Oh, those RICE WASTING children!

I am Genius Cheater Sushi Pig Mom with daycare tomorrow!


Owen eats Japanese

Rooster at Japanese

We love sushi rice!
Arigato!

Rice? It's easily the cheapest thing on the buffet! Who wants to go to some all-you-can-eat so some surrogate Mama-san can scold you about starving kids in Asia and suggest somehow you can fix the problem of world hunger by eating everyting on your own plate?

I hope one of your rugrats made a nice rice sculpture with it.

Sushi. Yummm. Cute pictures!

Gina said...

Those are some cute mugs!

That is hilarious they say not to waste the rice!!! Um, you paid for it, you should be able to make jewelry out of it for all they care!

Merry Mama said...

Just checked out your photo stream... You guys are so cute and happy... loove reading you.

Mrs. T said...

Define waste.
Am still giggling about you referring to your "yippee yahoo region". ha!

Karly said...

You took two little people to eat sushi? Did they at least whine and beg for chicken nuggets?

Mad Hatter said...

Oh and here I thought I was the only person on earth who said "Tarnation" anymore. It is such a good word.

Marmite Breath said...

I've never eaten sushi. I'm such a food wimp.

I am over my points, but it's not my fault, because the WW online tracker was broken today, so naturally, I had free reign.

Also, I made a carrot cake out of the WW cookbook. Dear God, it's not good.

PS) Stop being so pretty. It's making me feel insecure. Your Flickr pictures are lovely.

Mel said...

I agree with Gina... you paid for it, and at the moment of purchase it became no longer their concern.
But those babyfaces are aDORable!

Happy Thursday!!!!

Plain Jane Mom said...

Holy hell, all I asked was that people stop blogging about delicious food. But does the internet listen to me? Does the internet care? Sadly, no, the internet she does not revolve around me...

But what cute kids you've got!

jen said...

i am mostly impressed that you took two kids alone out to a restaurant.

the thought of that terrifies me.

i am such a wimp mommy, i know.

karrie said...

Mmmmm! Good call, good call.

Now I really wish you were my neighbor. And I have a mean craving for a pot of sake.

NtycnBoricua said...

I agree with Jen - you took 2 kids to a restaurant alone!

Btw, very cute kids!

They're so cute! Good to know you all worked together to keep from breaking the rules.

Lisa said...

Sushi... mmmmm...

I could have loaned you my son. He LOVES that kind of rice!

Your children are beautiful! Do they like sushi too? Or do they eat tempura?

Karana said...

Don't waste the rice? They should let you get it WITHOUT the rice if they are so worried about you wasting it. I agree with the others, once you've paid for it, do with it what you like. It's a little different if it's a buffet and you fill up a plate with food and don't touch it... but if they put it on the plate and you don't want it... well, that's their problem. Not yours.
Anyway... I'm babbling.
Glad you figured out a way to survive.

IT'S THURSDAY! WOOHOO!

Kristin said...

Dirty rice wasters. I know your type.

Bob said...

girl, you are a hoot.

love your writing.

Christina_the_wench said...

Ew. Rice. And sushi. Ew.

Waya said...

You're killing me with all this talk of sushi!! I was at the in-laws all 4 days this past wk and they had sushi for dinner and I can't even touch a thing! Damn pregnancy!! And you are clever grasshopper, why would I fill up on the rice too when I can have sashimi!! Yummy!!

Tabba said...

Those are two cute, scratch that, adorable kids. It's so funny, The Mayor is a mini version of K and Rooster girl is a mini version of you. Perfection, dang it. Perfection!
Oh, and kids do come in handy when you have to waste something. Ha! Good on ya!

Grim Reality Girl said...

The rice eaters are SO CUTE! Great pics. I still don't like sushi, but live big -- skip the rice!

PunditMom said...

You are SO hip! I wish we had one of those in our neighborhood!

YEAH for day care!

Lotta said...

I'm so confused on how you could waste rice balls? Make them sticks to the ceiling tiles?

Lotta said...

PS - Gorgeous family! I love the pics.

Mrs. Chicky said...

Could you adopt me and bring me to an all-you-can-eat Sushi place? Please? But I'll need more than just rice. I'll need fish and a big serving of those cute faces.

wordgirl said...

Me love rice long time! No likey raw fish, though.

Queen of the Mayhem said...

How cute are those babies? You need to tell the sushi people that they are NOT the boss of you! Plus, we need to be able to get some fringe benefits from our children! Goodness knows they give us enough trouble to make up the difference!

Lisa said...

Such cuties. Even if they waste rice. hee hee.

Good idea.

Lisa

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Adorable children. Too bad they waste rice. I love sushi.

Kevin Charnas said...

WE JUST WENT THROUGH THIS SAME THING LAST NIGHT!!!!

What the hell? Who died and left all these keepers-of-the-rice???

Mamma said...

Who the hell are the rice Nazi's? Kevin found some too?

Karen said...

Hmmm, so will you be going back to this place?

I had to laugh at your solution to the rice waste!
