WHAT SORT OF SUSHI DO YOU LIKE?
I am so thankful to be the permanent dinner companion to a man who thinks like me. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! While we love trying different foods and are always up for a new restaurant, we tend to find ourselves at the same restaurant for each & every date night – RuSan’s! I could probably eat sushi every day for the rest of my life and never get tired of it.
I always order the same two things – a cucumber salad & a roll called, “America Re-Rising.” The salad is a mixture of cucumber, crabmeat, sesame seeds, and some type of magic sauce. I have been known to drink the dressing, even after the cucumber is gone. My beloved sushi roll consists of sea bass, cucumber, and carrot. It’s wrapped in macadamia nuts, flash-fried, and set up like a tower on a rice ball wrapped in seaweed paper. Beneath it lies a delicious flag, made up of different sauces.

I’ve loved RuSan’s Ameria Re-Rising since high school!
My son is named after my grandfather, Kenneth Ames.
A French version of the biblical Amos, it means friend. Ames is a popular last name up in the New England area, which is where that side of my family originates.
[Side note: I’ve got a genealogy tree, thanks to my grandfather, with families dating back to the Plymouth Rock & Mayflower!]
Ames is pronounced just like “James,” without the J. People often mispronounce it for “Amos,” an issue I never anticipated but do not mind.
