Two weeks later we finally got our schedules together and had my mom's birthday outing. Per my suggestion we did dinner and a movie up in p-town. If there hadn't been such crappy movies out we might have actually got this done sooner, but nothing decent came out until this week. Mom picked This is 40 which was playing at 6:45 pm so we picked her up at 5:00 pm for dinner at Ikkyu, the new Japanese restaurant in town. Since I was the only one who'd been there before I put myself in charge of ordering dinner (whether they liked it or not!). We got orders of miso soup and salads for everyone and then picked two orders of Japanese tacos (fried eggplant slices as the taco shells with spicy tuna or crab filling), two dragon rolls (California roll topped with eel and avocado), a salmon skin roll (crunchy salmon inside), and a Jimmy roll (fried in tempura with cream cheese in the filling).
