This past Saturday after a grueling “Glutes & Guts” workout with Angie at the Coliseum Gym, I decided to spend the afternoon with my mom and grandmother to take in some of the sights of the fall season.

Needless to say we headed over to Catasauqua Road to scarf down their Sushi and Sashimi Lunch Combo. Great deal for $13.95 since it includes miso soup and salad too. Jimmy always makes me take him there when he is home from school, which is fun “bonding with your son” time, but an unexpected great lunch out with my husband and hot sake can’t be beat. Did I mention Don paid?
