Last night we went out for sushi. Usually to ensure that he will eat something, we would get him noodles. But last night, Lucas was up for anything. Aside from that, this older couple eating next to us commented on his excellent table manners. I thanked them and said that this was one of his better days, they laughed, probably remembering taking their own kids out to eat.

Lucas ate a smorgasboard of Japanese delicacies. We started off with edamame, which he always has loved. He also had the "gomae", which is blanched spinach in a sesame miso dressing. His main dish was the miso-glazed salmon with rice. He had some of my rock 'n roll (eel and avocado roll), salmon sashimi, amaebi, and the deep-fried shrimp heads that come with it.

The only thing he didn't like was the mackerel sashimi. I can't say I blame him on that one.

Who knows, the next time we go out, he may demand noodles or just rice. But last night it was fun to see him enjoy eating sushi as much as me and Kevin.
