But I digress. Neal's absolute importance, aside from being a great person, is that he has the 'Sashimi Responsibility'. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Graduation, Funerals, Weddings--you know it's a Special Event when there is sashimi.
Here was our spread from Thanksgiving, and I already can't wait 'til Christmas. Dark red was maguro, orange was salmon, and the two white were hamachi and halibut. Bought at Tokyo Fish Market, Berkeley and happily gobbled-gobbled up by our ohana at Thanksgiving.
