Kevin and I have had a really good week. He kicked off his first week at his new job and really loves it. I’m so excited for him and know he will do great things in this new role. I was also promoted this past week with my current company. I’m really grateful for the opportunity, and I hope to make everyone proud.
I’ve been trying to balance school and life better by taking more study breaks to spend quality time with friends and family. We did just that last week when we grabbed a quick dinner with our neighbors at Seito in Baldwin Park. Our neighbors also recently got a new camera, so we had some fun playing with that.
We started out with some edamame and beef negimaki, which is thin slices of beef wrapped around green onions, carrots and asparagus in teriyaki sauce.
The beef was very tender and easy to bite through. It was really good.
Kevin ordered chicken yakisoba for his main entree, which came with miso soup.
His noodles were very flavorful, and I was stealing bites off his plate.
I ordered two rolls. The Ichiban roll featured spicy salmon, and the Alaskan Crunch roll had crab salad, tempura batter and smoked salmon.
Everything tasted so fresh, and the textures and flavors all melted together: the sign of good sushi.
Also ordered at our table were a spicy tuna roll and Sweetheart roll.
We had a great time eating great food with great people. I really cherish these moments when I can break away from school work and enjoy life.
