Our Holiday Tradition

Last night Mark and I went out to dinner with Susan and Frederick for our annual Allen/Fujimoto Christmas Party. We started the tradition of having a separate Christmas party three years ago when Mark and Susan were so fed up with their workplace that they boycotted their company party and planned a separate dinner on the SAME night so they wouldn't have to go (in fact, I wrote about it in my VERY first journal entry HERE). Since then, their company has had such a bad turn out at their parties that they don't even have one anymore... We still continue our Christmas dinner tradition, though - and in many ways it's much nicer than having to go to a big company party. :)

This year we went to L'Uraku Restaurant - which is an upscale, Asian restaurant that serves "tasting menus". They have 5 or 6 dishes of sushi, salad, and appetizers before the main course. The portions are very small, but it's interesting to taste a lot of different things that I don't think I'd ever order on my own. I ended up having the Miso Braised Short Ribs and Mark had the Snapper. The food was so delicious and it was great spending time with Susan and Frederick. :)

Frederick, Susan, Mark, and I at L'Uraku. The atmosphere is nice too - painted umbrellas hang from the ceiling and the service is always very laid back and friendly.

I wish it was more than once a year that we could all go out and just spend a nice evening together. :)

Well, I'm off to Longs with the hubby, he needs to pick up more contact solution and I have to get going on wrapping the gifts for my office folks! Hope you're all having a nice Sunday!
