Mark and I were able to enjoy the big city together today. My parents took care of our kids and we went to a place called The Market in The Woodlands looking for great Christmas deals. It was lots of fun, and I love bargain hunting. The Market is not the most ideal place to look for bargains since most of the stores are very expensive, but there were lots of neat things to look at that you really don't see other places. Mark was so sweet and doting. He was in the mood to spend money on me, so I got a kick out of that.
For lunch we went to a very nice sushi restaurant. The martinis sounded great so we treated ourselves and it was worth it! The food was superb, and although the appetizer (sea bass salad with apples, cranberries, and slivers of green onion) was a tiny, beautifully arranged, mouth watering treat (emphasis on tiny), we left having eaten enough. We split a sushi sampler that had calfornia rolls and eel, shrimp, salmon, and bass nigiri. Nigiri is a type of sushi that has slices of fish on a mound of rice. We ordered more salmon nigiri as well as a handroll of wasabi infused fish and a handroll of habanero infused fish to give it a try. The wasabi roll was good, but the habenero roll tastes like you would think - what does habanero and sushi have to do with each other? The high quality and creativeness worked with the habanero roll, for it was good, just not outstanding like everything else.
The restaurant had a great atmosphere and great service. The artwork on the walls, which were for sale, were not only affordable, but very good! A side note on the martinis, I ordered a white chocolate martini that was so good, we picked up ingredients on our way home to fix my mom a treat tonight. She really enjoyed it!
