My friend, Debbie turned 48 on Saturday, so we were invited to join their family and another couple who are friends of theirs for dinner at a local Japanese steakhouse restaurant, Stix. There were 10 of us and we had a ball. You know the drill, sit around the big cooking pit where the guy cooks everything right in front of you. It’s always a fun experience to see your food being cooked and then you get to eat it right away.
The rest of us waiting for dinner to start. That’s Debbie beside me. Remember when I took you on a visit to their farmhouse in the country last year? Debbie and Rick are great people!
So, the show starts with major flame throwing by the chef. Always a treat to see fire!
Took so many pics while he was preparing our meal, he called me papparazzi. We all got a kick out of that one.
We all ate so much we were stuffed at the end of dinner. But, Debbie had other plans……
Since it was HER birthday, she wanted to go and get HOT Krispee Kreme donuts for dessert. We didn’t argue and luckily the big neon sign was lit, so you know what that means! I had never been inside this big store that we have and what a fun place to watch donuts being made. Look at them all! There was a group of 14-yr. old girls in there who were celebrating a birthday and after they heard us sing to Debbie, they all rushed over and gave her a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday in a way only 14-yr. old girls on a sugar high can do. It was too cute!
Here they are coming out of the cooking vat, ready for the icing to go on. We all wondered if we would get tired of donuts if we worked at a donut shop. Huummmm, maybe not!
