So the snow is melting – quickly. It is raining – steady. And in between making a Challah and a Boise Sourdough Bread, Robin says, “Are you ready to eat sushi?” “Only if we leave now. The bread has an hour and a half for the first rise. The sourdough is getting happy,” I said. Now that’s the fastest I think she has gotten ready to leave to eat. We were out of the house in 10 minutes and on our way to Happy Fish Sushi in downtown Boise and it was well worth the slushy, wet, drizzly drive. Check the link for their menu and other information. And by all means, visit them – several times! But in the meantime, check out what we had below. It was delicious!
