Friends, Family, Yummy Food: It’s Your Party

The Daily Post’s prompt for July 4th is:

Since many are marking their country’s “birthday” in the US today, we wanted to ask: How do you celebrate yours? Are you all for a big bash, or more of a low-key birthday boy/girl?

I’m not 100% sure if they mean how do I celebrate the 4th of July, the birthday of my country, or how do I celebrate my birthday. Since there are bloggers from all over the world, who probably don’t celebrate the fourth unless it also happens to be their birthday, I think they mean how do I celebrate my birthday.

I wish I had a more interesting answer, but I usually celebrate without huge fanfare. We have busy schedules, so instead of stressing ourselves by trying to go out for dinner on my actual birthday, we tend to celebrate a birthday week or, sometimes, month. A day close to our actual day that will work with our schedule is free game. We pick a yummy restaurant with food we like – sushi, fusion, Chinese, contemporary salads, seafood casserole, something spicy … I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it. We dine with family and sometimes friends. If it’s a big milestone birthday, then we dine with more friends. I’d dine with friends all the time if I had my druthers. I don’t mind going out multiple times for a birthday week or month, but it’s usually just once. I like to indulge in something extra yummy like a decadent dessert with caramel or extra chocolate (or both). And I’ve been known to eat ice cream or birthday cake for breakfast. Yum! Happy taste buds!

    Your post makes a lot of sense to me. In fact, it’s given me fodder for a new post on where to find a good sandwich and how Barb and I reacted to a radio discussion several years ago.

    Thank you.
