Summer’s finally coming to a close and to celebrate we’ve been feasting. (Though I like to find any excuse to grub year round.) My sushi cravings are always present but were even more intense last week, so when a new sushi joint opened up in Davis, I obviously had to try it out. There’s a lot of sushi places (especially sushi buffets) in Davis, but I have to say I think Nami Sushi has become my favorite. Unlike the other sushi buffets I’ve tried, the rolls are made to order, the ingredients are fresh, and the service there is awesome. Our waitresses were so nice.
We (more so Alex) have been experimenting more with home cooked meals & the dishes we concocted actually turned out quite well. Ever since we’ve gotten the iron skillet, we’ve been grilling most (if not all) our meats on there. It has finally gotten a nice seasoning to it (plus we never have to add any extra cooking oil!) And we’ve been trying to cut down on eating rice with everything so I sautéed a mixture of vegetables together as a side to the pork chop. I don’t know how to cook very well, but sautéing veggies is my jam (though it is pretty hard to mess up.) I experimented a little and decided to make some stuffed mushrooms since our mushrooms needed to be used. They honestly just turned out all right–edible but not to-die-for. At least they looked cute in pictures though. Alex did a little experimenting of his own when he made what he deemed the “Grilled Mac & Cheezus.” It was delicious, but it’s definitely a carb overload. Yum, carbs. The best thing he made though was his marinated pork more accurately called Char Siu Bao in Chinese. I love this Chinese dish and order it a lot when we go to Chinese restaurants, but his is better than any I have ever had. It was perfect, and it was only his first attempt, so I can’t wait until he makes this again…
But what’s a celebration without some drinks? Everyone knows that the best hour is happy hour so when we went to Roseville over Labor Day weekend, we decided to get our grub on at YardHouse. It didn’t disappoint, their garlic chicken pasta and the Andersen Valley Summer Solstice seasonal brew were bomb-friggin-diggity. And then last but not least, later on in the week, we decided to revisit Wrap N’ Roll because you really can’t have too many sushi burritos, right? (Mercury poisoning from over-consumption of fish aside.)
It was a great week to feast like kings to get rid of our summer bods and fatten up for the colder seasons. #WinterIsComing
Just kidding, I still need to go work off that Grilled Mac & Cheezus! Anyway, hope y’all have been eating well and milking the rest of the summer! Talk you you lovelies later. But for now, bon ap! 😉
