This February has been VERY popular for competitions.  There was the Super Bowl.  (But I think more people watched the Puppy Bowl.)  The Winter Olympics are in full force in Sochi.  (Speaking of puppies, wouldn’t Sochi be a good puppy name?)  And then there was Foodies Show Heart this past Sunday at RA Sushi in Lombard, Illinois. In case you are behind on your Felt Like a Foodie blogs,  RA Sushi in Lombard had asked local food writers/bloggers (I was one of them) to each create a one-of-a-kind sushi roll as part of the first “Foodies Show Heart” charity competition Sunday afternoon.

Dilemma.  I love sushi.  (Okay, that is not a dilemma.)  The problem is that not all of my friends love sushi.  (They have other redeeming qualities.)  So every time I leave my small town, I want to go to a sushi restaurant and they don’t.
