Birthday Memories

16th Birthday 2

Today's my birthday, so I decided to share one of my birthday memories—my 16th birthday celebration at the former Benihana restaurant in Farmington, CT. Our server snapped a Polaroid of my aunt and me after delivering the complimentary dessert pictured in the foreground. Currently, another Japanese restaurant is located there on Farmington Avenue, called Japanica. In 2004, I celebrated my 30th birthday at Japanica with my parents, in-laws, husband, grandmother, and aunt. Both birthday parties were spent around the hibachi table, watching the chef both prepare our food and exhibit his culinary prowess.

Tonight, my husband and I are going out to eat …somewhere. I still haven’t decided on a restaurant, which is unusual. Chalk it up to a busy week. bjh
