Tonight at 5:30, my niece knocked on the door and came in.
This part of the mystery I knew. The kids were so excited that she was babysitting. I was excited too. To be out for a few hours with my handsome husband.
I called Ed to let him know I was all ready and he directed me to his office book case (in our home), 4th row up, all the way to the left, green notebook, front page.
There was a map with directions of where I was to meet him.
We ended up meeting at a Japanese/Chinese restaurant where we have dined before, but always on the Chinese side.
Tonight we experienced the hibachi side. It was fabulous. We were immediately warmed up from being so close to the flames. I think I may have even acquired a sun tan.
Soup, salad, shrimp appetizer (those brave enough had the opportunity to catch a flying shrimp, by mouth, from the chef), filet mignon, fresh veggies and rice.
So very tasty and I was fascinated with the chef and what a treat to watch our food being cooked right in front of us (plus the fancy knife and spatula throwing, egg tossing/catching with the spatula and not breaking, and the volcano onion...yes....just like the Office episode...Ed and I had a good chuckle over that).
After dinner we went to a different restaurant for dessert and non-stop conversation.
Home early due to roads as my niece had to be taken back home.
It was a great evening.
It was a great birthday. :)
