Meaty goodness.....

I think Kim and I have talked about going to Fogo de Chao (pronounced Fo-go de Shoun...not Chow so we found out) for the better part of 5 years. I had some food catered from there once and it was phenomenal so I knew that Kim and I were in for an awesome meal. We finally decided this fall that we were making it happen this year for our anniversary. I had actually kicked around some other places but we thought why put it off anymore...let's just do this.

Oh. My. GAWD......this is a meat eaters paradise. It strikes a nerve that is embedded from the cave man era that man should eat meat cooked over a fire. Taking a chance that some readers may be vegetarian, you would pass out seeing all of the critters cooked on a spear. It was amazing. Everything was seasoned to perfection and cooked to specs. If you want rare, you can get it. If you want well done....you can get that too...and it not chew like shoe leather! Pork, chicken, beef, lamb, sausages, different cuts of steak - top sirloin, bottom sirloin, ribs, roast, filet. It was so good. We ate and ate and ate...and then had some dessert.

After that, we went to the movies. It's easily been three years since we've been to a movie simply because we're cheap. Even years before Reese was thought about, we just didn't go to that many shows. An overriding fear would be that one of us would fall asleep (more than likely Kim), the movie might bite so let's just wait for the rental, and again...we're cheap. But despite it all, neither fell asleep, "Couples Retreat" was worth it....but we're still cheap because I grimmaced swiping the card for $20 just for the two of us.

We enjoyed the date and got in around 11:30p to find Nana chilling on the couch. Nan watched Reese while we were out and she stayed with us Friday night and Saturday night. I think Reese was plenty comfortable with Nana Saturday afternoon because we came down from showers to find this cute sight....

Its been a great weekend and Reese really enjoyed spending some time with her Nana. My parents took a weekend trip to the mountains so we didn't get a double Grandparent whammy this weekend. Instead, I put some final touches on the bathroom today and we'll probably be sharing pics of a NEARLY complete master bath renovation this week. Thank God.

More posts coming later plus a new little post trend I plan to start. Later guys....

I ate at Fogo right after it opened years ago and more or less made a fool of myself I ate so much. I loved it so much I took my parents a few weeks later. Glad you enjoyed it. You shout try Abattoir. Very meat centric too.
