Jen and I have been playing a small game: who order dinner? Last night was Jen's turn. I showed up, and it was up to her to decide on dinner -- the whole thing. I made no decisions. I did say that I would pay. About an hour later, sushi and maki arrived at her door.

The dumplings and the tempura were very good. The sushi and the maki, that was intimidating. The stuff covered in fish eggs, doubly so. I had to triple-dog dare Jen into starting with the big-row covered maki. She ate half, and I ate half. She picked the next piece. We continued this way through the assortment. Some things we could identify, while others we were clueless about.

This was my first time for quite so many different types of sushi and maki. Neither of us would have ordered this on our own.

The basement is making slow progress. There's LOTS of water under the carpet. It is all coming up slowly. There's also lots of crapola in the basement that must be ditched. This will be slow going.
