His Taco Dinner

Breakfast: Pastries from Hamadaya
I got sick maybe because of these. I bought a day before and didn’t refrigerate them. It tasted a little sour. I was in bed all morning till 2pm.

Late lunch

I had an appointment with my chiro doctor at 6:30pm, so he prepared dinner.

We were so happy to have delicious sushi since both of our partners don’t care about sushi so that it was a rare opportunity 🙂 He had two more pieces of Yellowtail sushi and says sushi in NY costs twice as much. Ordered a big hot sake too 🙂
