Nothing like a Good Poke on Valentines Day

Thats right. A good fresh, spicey, RAW poke. What are you looking at me like that for? Eh? What? Its pronounced "po-kay"!! Perv!

We decided to do Valentines at home tonight... since my lame ass car decided to dash away any chances of going out by deciding to have a near blow-out the day before Valentines, causing us to need to buy 2 new (low profile! ><) tires. Gah. But all was not lost. I decided we'd have Dave's favorite, poke. If there is anything I "cook" more often than anything else... this is it. Easy. Reasonably priced (thankfully we have a fish market nearby that sells sushi grade tuna at an excellent price).. and always tastey. We paired this up with the regular Japanese sticky rice, and some simply presented tofu garnished with chopped green onion and ponzu.

Of course I had to get all fancy and doodle a little heart on the plate... to make it a bit more special than usual.

I hope you all had a pleasant Valentines!!!

You know, in Spain, it's not Friday the 13th that's the bad luck day but Tuesday the 13th. Looks like it hit you hard.

Wow! That heart looks awesome. I could really do with some sushi now. I haven't had it in ages.
