An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

  • I love your camera. You can make anything look good.

  • jana

    What a great picture. Mmmm…sushi

  • I’m so glad someone else in this world also take photos of food. 🙂

  • That’s one strange looking Sushi! Which restaurant is it from?

  • Chellerella

    Anything? That’s SUSHI – that’s making what already looks good, LOOK GREAT! This site is of great pleasure to surf!

    I’m thankful for it…

    Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

  • Surfie

    For someone who doesn’t really like sushi (too much saki..blech), even this picture makes me want to eat it!

    Have you ever seen this site? It’s pretty neat-o.

  • I can honestly say I have never had sushi.

  • Milo

    What’s saki?

  • Irrylyn

    That is the most beautiful picture of food I’ve seen!

  • Looks yummy.

  • Molly

    mmmm I am hungry..
    Great picture.. as always..

  • Jeff C.

    Love your pictures! I wish i could take pictures like you.

  • darn you, silly atkins diet! i miss my maki (but not sashimi — never was into that). rice has so many carbs… ::sigh::

    sake is japanese rice wine. it can mess you up quick, especially considering that it comes in little teeny flasks. smells like paint thinner, but it doesn’t taste too bad.

  • See, this is just so unfair. I can’t get that in Dogpatch and if I could, I wouldn’t trust it not to kill me.

    If you need me, I’ll be over here licking my monitor.

  • Mom! Is that you? I told you, no matter how pretty you try to make it, I’m NOT going to eat seafood!

  • LT

    Holy crap. Does that place prepare good Ikura too?

  • Sue F.O.

    Does tuna from a can constitute as sushi?

    I’ve never had sushi before but I must admit, that picture made me say, ‘YUMMY!’ Of course, sushi from Lake EERIE probably isn’t the first place I should try it from, huh….

  • The intense color saturation and definition on that roe and the translucency of the fish over the rice on those rolls is superb!

  • amy


  • You got me hungry..
    Wonderful picture!

  • Sushi! I’m the biggest sushi addict. I also take pictures of food.
    This reminds me…I haven’t had sushi in two weeks.

  • Oh, almost forgot: Happy Canadian Thanksgiving =)

  • mmmmmmm…sushi!

    just how I like it, too, with lots of roe on top that burst like tiny bubbles in you teeth.

    dammit. now I’m hungry!

  • Jes

    I am so jealous…of the photographic abilities, and the food.

    Keep it up!

  • Mir

    So… hungry… must… find… dragon… roll….

  • I’m a day late and a dollar short (as usual) but I LOVE the the “Mommy wants a new president” t-shirt!

  • Your eye for composition is intriguing. You’ve made sushi appear monumental… like a mountainscape with a line of red trees along the top. Interesting stuff.

  • yes, the scenery REALLY makes me want to move to Utah 🙂

  • DRAT! Now I’m craving sushi and sake instead of the turkey that is right now roasting in my oven! Happy thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians.

  • Very pretty fish eggs. They are indeed the highlight of the photograph. Glowing little souls ready for consumption. I am proud to love dooce and all her beautiful pictures.

  • Kath

    Ummm…hate sushi…love Dooce pix…would love to see how you’d portray my favorite snack foods…(and one of yours too)…the DORITO!! Yum…think I’ll have some now!

  • omg, now i want some california rolls and cream cheese and tuna rolls. yum! sushi is so pretty.

  • robin

    I bet being able to have sushi after pregnancy was fabulous! It was one of the things I ran towards first. That and advil.

  • I know I should be talking about the picture, but…

    Your micro-post about the Cheeto Hands made me laugh out loud. My sister-in-law is from the South, and I can’t get the idea of her yelling that at my brother out of my head.

    Oh yeah, and I had no idea that Canadians even celebrated Thanksgiving. What an insensitive ethnocentric bastard that must make me. Bad, bad bad.

  • Sushi…oh sushi…wasabi…oh yum. I can’t wait ’til I get to eat solid food.

    When I saw the red roe in the tiny picture on the main page I thought it was Fall leaves. I like this–sushi as landscape.

  • yummy yummy delish sushi

  • Sushi! Ohhhhh….drool…I’ve been missing good sushi (at least my favorite, the RAW type) since I’ve been pregnant. I still go for the non-raw type because I’ve actually been craving WASABI (can you hear the waves of drool crashing down my chin?), and eating wasabi straight just doesn’t cut it. Ten more weeks…mmmmmm….

  • jill from nc

    “Git awf mah bayud with those cheetoh hayunds” …is that what it sounded like?

  • No amount of rice wine can make me drunk.

    Pretty fish!

  • Any food that comes on a continually replenished conveyer-belt has a double thumbs-up from me! Yo, sushi!

  • Canadian Thanksgiving:

    In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October. Unlike the American tradition of remembering Pilgrims and settling in the New World, Canadians give thanks for a successful harvest. The harvest season falls earlier in Canada compared to the United States due to the simple fact that Canada is further north.Butchart Gardens

  • Sushi is beautiful.
    Yummy…I want some now.

  • Aaaah, you’re making me hungry!
    I am so jealous of your camera.

  • i had chirashi (sashimi on a bed of sushi rice) for lunch and now i am still craving sushi for dinner. i may even go get some. one can never eat too much sushi, i believe.

  • also, as much as i love the camera and think it is wonderful, i really think it’s your talent and eye for color and composition that make your pictures so great, dooce. right? please tell me this is so, so that i don’t run out and spend a thousand dollars on a camera.

  • I think I like some of the thumbnails as much as the actual photos.
    Happy CDN Turkey Day.

    There IS only ONE Lauren.

  • IHateToast

    you do take great photos. i wonder what doesn’t make it….other than the ones that involved extreme nudity. this photo is good, but sushi is handsome food. i challenge you to take a photo of …oh, let’s say gravy, oatmeal or any “meat” baby food and make it look as good. no cheating and having beautiful utah mts in the background! or sexing it up with extreme nudity. or would nudity and oatmeal be the ultimate challenge. hm…

  • Mmmmmm, TOBIKO!

  • hmmm…this is against one of my rules to live by.

    never eat sushi anywhere without a coastline.

    not really a problem now that i’m vegetarian, but still i think solid in principle.

  • Gia on Guam

    I just saw Super Size Me. I’m going vegetarian for awhile…but that doesn’t mean I give up sushi & sashimi.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
