shattered



Gluttony is one of those things that I cant live without, and it presents itself most prominently in my gluttony for punishment. There are some blogs out there that I find so terrible on so many levels but for some OCD reason I have to read them - I know why, I am hoping that somehow some way they have figured it all out and they have changed but its not to be. Dont think I am mean, come on people hate me for the same very reasons.



It shatters and batters my brain sometimes but I cant seem to walk away. "I've been shattered, my brains been battered, its splattered all over Manhattan."



Sushi falls under another degree of my gluttony, once I start I just cant stop. We have had some kind of sushi or another for the last 3 or 4 days. I dont know if its the rice, the fish or the seaweed that keeps tugging me back or if its a combination of it all. This salmon roll has a secret edible flower center and some fresh pole beans and ikura (salmon roe) scattered about.



Lunch has been great lately and this seared tuna is no exception.



Seared tuna with black sesame seeds and a spicy coating served with carrots and scallions and hijiki and kombu and rice. Looks like glutttony is stuck with me and I am stuck with gluttony and I am going to be using stuff from Asian Food Grocer for quite some time.

Well, it is definitely visually appealing gluttony.

Oh no... And now I have to wonder if I am one of those bad blogs...

But your presentation is fabulous, so I'll be back

Anette said...

What cool words I learn from this blog! And thanks to my friend "thefreedictionary" online, I rarely get stuck!

I always want to be a glutton. I don't even hardly pick while I cook. Yet, when I sit down, the smells of the food have me so satiated that I eat less than my 8 year old. Then I'm hungry in 2 hours. And I never eat lunch. Go figure.

Jenn said...

I know that feeling all too well. Nice look sushi you have there. I think I need to get my hand into trying to make some one of these days.

tavolini: good lookin' gluttony - I like that.

TW: and why not - right?

A year: dont worry the blogs that bug me dont leave comments - I think they read me on the sly - it aint you buddy

snugs: thar' you go agin'

anette: I google translate from norwegien to english all the time ....

marjie: you have temperment - something that a glutton lacks

jenn: its completely obsessive - and when are you going to get busy and start rolling up some rice?

Harmony said...

You just need to tell yourself that enough is enough and kick those blogs to the curb. Then you can use your freed up time to post more pictures of your beautiful dishes.

Micky-T said...

Kick me, beat me, make me write bad checks but just let me have my fill of all that fish!

Jill said...

doggybloggy said...

harmony: free time? its like extra money - who has it?

doggybloggy said...

marymoh: you snuck in while I was commenting - we love salmon around here...

Being a glutton for punishment almost equates being a glutton for pleasure. Fine line in mine eyes.

Dawn said...

And I promise to take you and banana or coconut or whatever her name is to St. Marks street to the best bar around...nice and divey but fun.

Beth said...

beth: you are welcome -

Velva said...

Hopefully, I am not one of the blogs!
That sushi looks absolutely stunning. I can understand why you would continue to eat for the last 3-4 days.

Nila Rosa said...

I had just gotten over my ramen craving today. Now you post sushi and suddenly I'm craving it like crazy. Thanks....thanks a lot.

Miranda said...

There is some silly sites..

I love sushi. I have tried to make it a handful of times. I have a really hard time with the rice. Any tips?

Pam said...

Looks like you are eating well. Gluttony and me go way back.

5 Star Foodie said...

Great looking sushi for sure! I can be quite a glutton when it comes to certain foods, like sushi or cheese for example.

Tangled Noodle said...

Gotta quote the JC Mellencamp: (sushi obsession) hurts so good!

I'm obsessively friendly (or is that needy?) so it's hard to kiss off someone. But I'd rather devote the time to blogs that do it so well. But back to the sushi, I think it's time for me to break out my oshibako again and start pressing some rice and fish!

Jamie said...

Wow! That sushi and company are to die for! I could eat it every day too. And I am so far gone into gluttony.... and I hope my blog isn't one of the punishments :-)

pinknest said...

Tanya Kristine said...
