Julie Dreams of Sushi
Yes I know that isn't sushi but it is unagi on rice. Better known as an unagi don. Which I would have never tried if it wasn't for knowing a super good sushi chef by the name of Aki.
Aki retired not long after I moved out of the area. Which makes me a little less sad for moving because I miss the good places I use to eat at. But at least I know unagi now and have an idea on how to cook it.
I finally watched "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" last night. I've known about this movie for a while and about Jiro's sushi restaurant. But to watch the movie is more than just about a restaurant with good sushi.
It's actually about just trying to do your best at whatever you are doing. While I doubt I will ever reach my best at anything, nor will I ever just want to do one thing, I do think the idea of trying to do well at what you do is not a bad one. Even if it's just sweeping the floor. Doesn't mean you have to dedicate your life to it, just if you work on doing your best you may feel better about what you are doing and try to do even more.
Well, I have been not posting blogs or many of my photos of the last year. Even if things aren't great, I am going to work on this. Will see how it goes.
Just to note, I don't dream of sushi but I do love it. Maybe I should start a "Julie Loves Sushi" project of some kind? I'm also open to invitations to Jiro's....
