In my down time this weekend I did some reading. This was a great book. It was set in southern Maine. The same area where I used to spend my summers with my grandmother. They listed out places and restaurants that I have been to and it brought back so many memories.
Lots of baking was also done. I honestly don't know how I am going to get rid of all of the treats but it sure was fun making everything. I think my co-workers are going to have quite a few surprises this week.
We also decided to go shopping in Hartford at two shopping plazas and the big mall. I am not sure this was the best idea. The first stop was not bad and we lucked out with a parking spot within 2 minutes of pulling in. The mall was a completely different story. Hectic is a huge understatement. It took way longer to find parking and we ended up walking about 10 minutes to get in. All I can say is it took all of my might not to buy anything. I have a tendency to buy everything on my list for me before Christmas. It was so hard not to pick up a few things. Mr. J promised to bring me back after Christmas to get anything Santa forgot.
All of the options keep going around and around. You can take as many different rolls as you would like. At the end they count up your plates and price you by color.
It wasn't the best sushi I ever had but it hit the spot last night. Mr. J was so focused on the plates going around we had little dialogue during dinner. I think all of the options were a bit much for him. His eyes kept darting back to the conveyor belt. I had to laugh out loud a few times.
We managed to stack up quite a few plates. Mr. J said he could have doubled what he ate and still ate some more. Good thing this place isn't close. All in all it was a fun experience but definitely not fine dining.
Have you ever been to conveyor belt sushi?
What did you do this weekend?
