Last week my parents took me to a new sushi restaurant called Shu. It was really good and I would like to go there again. I am only going to tell you about the dessert I had. I looked at the dessert menu and saw something that said ‘Banana Spring Rolls’. It sounded more exciting than ice cream. I ordered it and when It came I knew I had made a good choice. Arriving on a plate covered in crisscross chocolate sauce lines, with a perfect scoop of Green Tea ice cream in the center. The ice cream had berries on top and chocolate sauce too. Around the base of the ice cream were four Banana Spring Rolls. A layer of thin crispy pastry was filled with gooey banana on the inside and a layer of powdered sugar on the outside. This of course, was drizzled with chocolate sauce. The Green Tea ice cream was very mellow and not too flavorful, which was sweet and also really cold. The spring rolls themselves were the best “spring rolls” I have ever had. The whole plate was sweet. The banana was a very good banana and not too ripe. The dessert was the best Japanese dessert I have had yet!

After driving all the way to Mammoth, we finally met B and A at their cabin. We also saw their three dogs, N, D and S. After we settled in we sat down to a nice home cooked meal of steak and potatoes(one of my favorites). The steak was cooked just the way I like it, medium rare. It was really good! We had mini potatoes that tasted like crispy french fries. They were cooked to perfection! B and A also cooked zucchini, the interesting thing was that I only liked the YELLOW zucchini and not the green! B and A also cooked some portabello mushrooms. I learned that vegitarians like these mushrooms because they have the consistancy of steak. They do have the texture of steak which is probably why I liked them so much. Dinner was followed with a salted French caramel ice-cream. It was one of the best ice-creams I had ever tasted! At the end of dinner we played a very wacky game of Snorta!

Last week at my house P came over to grill sausages with my dad. My grandparents ate marinated lamb chops. We had four different types of sausage: Polish, Kielbasa, Chicken Pepper and Portuguese. We had grilled artichokes, which I usually like but these were burnt and had no taste, although the adults didn't agree. I usually like them boiled. The Polish sausage was spicy and sweet, I wrapped it in bread to cut the spice. The Kielbasa was really delicious, it was my favorite because it was really sweet and mild, I had one and a half pieces! The chicken pepper was.... well don't get me started on that one, it was horrible! The Portuguese tasted a lot like the Polish. We had salads on a bed of butter lettuce tucked in with ranch and trimmed with tomato's. We had corn that was sweet and baby carrots that were a treat! All in all it was pretty good BBQ night.

Last night I went to the sushi restaurant, Ajisai. First I had a raw spinach salad, the spinach was really good. The only thing I don’t eat but I have tried in that salad are the Enoki mushrooms, I don’t like them because the mushrooms are long and stringy. The whole thing is drizzled with a light, mild ponzu sauce. Then I had Halibut sushi, the reason I like it is because it has a lemon citrus sauce and a little bit of sea salt. Next Albacore sushi, it has a ponzu sauce and the tuna is pink. Then my favorite, spicy tuna shrimp tempura hand roll. The roll has one piece of shrimp tempura, a little bit of rice and spicy tuna. The roll is wrapped in seaweed ( another favorite).
To finish off my meal I had pork gyoza, which I really like because it has a special secret sauce. Guess I'm just a 'saucy' kid. A fresh orange finishes the meal.
Afterwards we all went to Yogurt Stop, a pump it yourself place. I had Vanilla yogurt, caramel sauce and gummy worms. My dad always has his vanilla with Butterfinger and Reeses pieces, he says “ fruit is for cereal. Meanwhile Tio Pigpen disagrees he loads up on fruit.
That's all for today!
