Destiny, thank you for inspiring so many hilarious (moronically juvenile) restaurant review headlines for me! Dick's: Mediocre at Best  Soggy and Salty Dick's a Disappointment Trying

We made Million Dollar Spaghetti the other night. It's basically like a spaghetti casserole lasagna. It was pretty good, but then again, it was basically just spaghetti with extra cheese. 

I never knew that had a name! I called it baked spaghetti and I have made it for years.  I like to use angel hair pasta.

According to my date, it was good sushi.  But given that I was a sushi virgin, I can only take her word for it.  I guess its just not for me.  

My first time, I didn't like it.  Second time, I was indifferent.  Now it's my favorite meal.

True.  Not for everyone.

This happened with me, as well.  First time, it was just bad sushi.  Took me at least 10 years to get over that bad impression to make me brave enough to try again.  Second time, started with a California roll. It wasn't that impressive, but it was my gateway roll to others that were awesome.

Good sushi doesn't always mean good for someone having it their first time. But good job trying something new.

Yup.  Probably my first five or six experiences were all at the same restaurant.  Great local place.   I went from dislike to love gradually but still pretty quickly.

I love sushi, but I could definitely see trying it the first time not really knowing what to expect and noping out. Especially if you started with some of the more complicated stuff.

I made a coconut curry pasta dish to bring to work today, after seeing the video recipe on Facebook this morning. I've already had two bowls.

It's a texture thing. I think the Japanese are really big into that too. It's like coffee for sushi and a learned taste. I think my sister finds the fishy options too fishy but she likes california rolls which is not real sushi.
