dear husband-to-be,

i don't like sushi.

okay, well, it's not that i don't like it...it's just... that there are so many other types of food i'd rather have. and because i'm a girl and i unfortunately can't eat until kingdom come, i get to be choosy about this. and so i'd rather have something else.

and yes, i've tasted good sushi. so, no, it's not that.

and i know this makes me far less cool. far less hip. but i've made peace with that, i'll live. (heck, i just used the word hip, which means i probably never was to begin with).

that's all. for now.


hint: i love pizza. and a good veggie burger? huzzah. thai, yes please.

love, love,
your food-loving-lady

ooh, i don't care for sushi either! i've had quality sushi, but it always makes my stomach ball up and i can hardly have two pieces. here's to melted cheese and veggies!

Pizza and a good veggie burger sound perfect to me. I have tried to fall in love with sushi but it hasn't happened yet

Lauren Kay said...

I don't love it either! And I always feel so uncool when I don't want sushi. I'd rather have a burger and shake or a big bowl of pasta. Mmm!

Caroline Henley said...

haha love this! I am not a sushi fan either... and all my friends get mad at me cause they seem to always want it!

just found your blog and I love it! so cute!

"and yes, i've tasted good sushi. so, no, it's not that."

I have said that like a million times & yet people keep trying to SHOVE it down my throat.

My hubs just loves a good burger. Oh how I love him for that.

wouldn't it be amazing if we could eat til kingdom come?! and you kiiinda described my 3 fav foods there....(pizza, veggie burger, thai)...ohhh goodness.

Emily said...

I feel the same way about sushi! I do like veggie sushi, but beyond that I would much prefer a yummy slice of pizza or a veggie burger!

i've recently embraced sushi. i've always had a "i don't eat seafood" policy (mostly due to the texture) but i've found certain rolls that i really like.

pizza and mexican will always hold a special place in my heart.

erin elder said...

I, personally, love sushi. but i completely understand your opinion of it. Far better things are out there to try...

and pizza, veggie burgers, thai? All wonderful things that i love far more than sushi. yum yum yum...

Molly Mouse said...

I love a good veggie burger. If you haven't already, please make a FED post about finding/making a good veggie burger! It's so hard to find for us non meat eaters.

Love, love, love your letters to your husband to be (and I hope he does too when you finally meet).

I can't do sushi. Just.Can't.Do.It.
I'll add that to the list of things that make me 'un-hip.'

Sera said...

i feel the same way! we can all be "less hip" together. :)

Mackenzie said...

i love the honesty of this, meg! especially the "i'm a girl and thus i have to choose wisely" part. it's so so true! for me, i'm a definite pizza and french fries with a diet coke kind of gal. i'm not for the really shee-shee sorts of things.

uncomfortable, noisy, but cute shoes, though...that's a different story :)

andrea said...

Sushi = ummm, no thanks. Blech. AND it's the boyfriend's favorite food so every time I'm like, "what should we get for lunch/dinner/whatever?" his face lights up and he says, "SUSHI?!"

Oh, you sweet but stupid boy. Ha.

Yvonne Anderson said...

I can't agree with the sushi part but I have an awesome pizza that I make with a thin base (which is kind of like a wood-fired one) spread with a tbsp of pure olive oil, then some anchovies (which I never used to like but my husband has a way of turning my tastes), black olives (again, when I first dated my hubby he laughed as I scrunched up my face in disgust at his olive eating habit), basil and a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese....Mmmhhh delightful.

Amanda said...

I'm with you on the sushi thing.

And no, the heart breaker isn't proving easy to get over. I don't wish this feeling even on my worst enemy...not that I have an enemy.

Ashley said...

I love how honest you are Meg! I have to admit I'm a sushi girl but veggie burgers, and Thai Mmm...I love those too!

Jane said...

Absolutely love pizza. I ate them all summer and definitely paid for it!

Raquel said...

thanks for the this post, hit really close to home! i am always getting crap for not liking sushi. "raquel, i thought you were COOL!" i am... i'd just rather not eat something that tastes like cat food! kthx!

molly YEH! said...

aaaaaamen. believe with me that sushi is a trend of five years ago, and we will be good!

...like a rolling stone. said...

i am always on the hunt for the best veggie burger wherever i am, so i agree with that one!
and this is a really cute sidenote on food to the man you'll marry. love it.
xo.
