Eating every little bit!

After golf we went to Kobe Steakhouse with Luisa to have a sashimi and sushi dinner.  We visited for a couple of hours before going home!

Paul did the sashimi (no rice)

Our chef, Manny, gave us an additional “on-the-house” selection he made just for us

We texted Joe with a picture of our meal and Amy texted back that Joe left to get some sushi to go….  We made him hungry!

Notice the “to-go” box Joe got from his “drive-thru sushi joint”

We sped home and Sue hit the treadmill before we watched Star Trek.
