Ringin' in the New Year!

My brother and my cousin Nolen came up and spent New Year's Eve with Rob and me. Jacob had been craving sushi and needed to do some shopping so he coaxed Nolen into coming with him. The last time we all had sushi, Nolen had chicken tempura and was upset because there was no ketchup. This time he decided to try something different which became our topic of conversation throughout the entire dinner. He decided on this dish which included udon noodles, egg, chicken, and green onion:

As you can see by the picture, this dish did not look appetizing. However, Nolen was a trooper and ate it! (Of course, later on in the evening he and Jacob made a Taco Bell run)
We had a great time with the guys and really hated that they couldn't stay longer. Here are some other pics from dinner.

This dish was a "on the house" dessert which is a Japanese tradition to bring good luck through the next year. (Japanese version of black eyed peas and collard greens) :) Needless to say, Rob was the only one at the table that will have good luck during 2009 since he's the only one of us that would eat it!

Happy 2009 Everyone!
