There was a tornado watch in our county on my birthday. But thankfully, we didn't end up in Oz. Instead, we celebrated indoors at my favorite Japanese Buffet Restaurant, Minado.
It had a broad spectrum of sushi plus other Japanese food made fresh from a kitchen visible from behind the serving section.
Well at least, it's the prep area that's publicly visible.
I should let you know that the kitchen crew at this Japanese restaurant is mostly Hispanic. I don't mind at all. I was there for the food!
And my sister gave me this raspberry walnut cake from Viking Bakery to make a wish on. I wonder if eating too much nuts would necessitate acne pills in the long run? I thought it was funny that the cake had "Viking" written on it. It definitely emphasized the fact that I ate like a Viking that day.
