NaBloPoMo: Day 30!!!

DSC_6085
Alright, first the photo. Today at Mitsuwa, they had a Giant Bluefin Tuna Carving demonstration. While it looks delicious to some people, I'm sure it's nauseating looking to others, so I'll give you this one photo. This is the HUGE tuna they carved. It was 350 pounds! It was amazing. They shipped the tuna from Spain, and the people from Tsukiji in Tokyo. We bought some of the Oo-Toro and it was delicious.

Now, I cannot believe I posted every day in November for NaBloPoMo. While I think a lot of my posts were just adding junk to the internets, it has been fun. Lucy's gotten much more blog time than she usually does. I think I'll continue with this more frequent blogging, although blogging every day may be a little exhausting. I'll try at least once a week and see where that takes me!

Haha, good job on posting. I don't think I've posted once in November. Hopefully that will change soon :)

The tuna is huuuuge! How long did it take to carve it?

I'm another one who thinks it looks delicious. Although I feel sorry for the fish.
