The poor missionaries...

We had the missionaries over for dinner last night. Alan loves to try and feed them something they wouldn't normally have at a members home. He fed the sister missionaries ribeye steaks last year, needless to say the loved that! When he found out that one of our missionaries had lived in Japan for a few years he decided to make sushi. The hard part is that we have to drive an hour to buy sashimi quality fish for the sushi. Worth it to Alan though. He tends to go overboard on most things and this was no exception. Thankfully we already had a lot of the items he needed like seaweed, shitaki mushrooms and rice. But he still spent around $60 on the ingredients! I'm going to interject here and tell you that there isn't a single person in our house aside from Alan that will touch Sushi with a 10, no make that a 100 foot pole. So he made mass amounts of Sushi and it turns out the other missionary agrees with the rest of my family and was not super excited about the sushi dinner. LOL, he tried one and he seriously turned green! I ended up making him a roast beef sandwich. I felt so bad for him! The sushi didn't go to waste though, amazingly, Alan and Elder Baxter ate ALL of it. Just makes me want to vomit thinking about it!

Looks like Alan is quite the chef. Although, I have to agree with the majority...NOT a sushi fan!
