Today's is G's mother's birthday so HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
Apparently she'd been very interested in going to Beyond Sushi since seeing on it the blog and hearing the raves from G and I every time we went. But she was at G's brother's house babysitting when we celebrated on Sunday. G, his dad, and I were in the city and brought Beyond Sushi to her instead.
They offer a catering menu for bulk orders, so we got that: Ten pieces of all of their regular eight offered rolls. Here in its excitedly blurry glory:
It came with tiny bottles of sauces and accompanying cards so we knew which went on top of which roll. It worked out that all seven of us got one of each roll, plus a fair amount of extras for whoever wanted.
On my plate:
After adjourning and retiring, though perhaps in a different order, we divvied up a vegan chocolate cake that we picked up at Whole Foods. You're probably aware of how amazing the food that Andy and Maritza make is, as they do an incredible job each time everyone gets together, but they were at a wedding in the afternoon and didn't have time to bake. Thus, Whole Foods cake.
