Tuesday the 26Th is Trisa's birthday and "the girls", Dee, Tammy and myself, went to eat with her on Monday night. Lisa was unable to attend. Trisa chose the HuHot Mongolian Grill. It's a very tasty restaurant. They have many food bars set up with all sorts of pastas, meats, fish, vegetables and different flavors of sauce to put over the other ingredients. Once you fill your plate, you take it over to a huge round grill that is kept behind a protective wall (to keep the customers from getting burned) and the chefs fry it up for you. It's basically a large stir fry with only your choice of ingredients. Personalized by none other than yourself! And you can keep going back for more. Needless to say, you fill up pretty fast. And we did!
Trisa opened her gifts after we were done eating. Then we were off to go shopping for a little while. We drove across the street and shopped in the craft store that I work at occasionally. From there we went to an Ace Hardware to look for some garden flags. While browsing, we found some other novelty gifts for each other. On the way back to our cars, we stopped at a Cold Stone Creamery and each tried a luscious flavor of ice cream. I had never been there before but had heard numerous things about it as my own sister Cathy loves to visit them in Oregon where she lives. As luck would have it, we all loved our own choices respectively and of course, had to sample each others selection! Move over Dairy Queen~~~there's some serious competition in town!
Then off to our cars we went and we all headed home. Tuesday meant back to work as usual....except for Trisa whom had taken the day off! Lucky girl! It was a very fun night! Dee, Tammy, Trisa and I all had a blast! Here are a few photos.
