As a blogger, I LOVE days that provide a lot of “fodder” for future posts. Today was such a day.
It started out with Michael and I driving to Atlanta and visiting the quilt show at historic Bulloch Hall…..more about that later this week.
We then drove to our favorite Barnes and Noble in Buckhead and spent 3+ hours relaxing and reading….my choice was to check out all of the new quilting magazines…..more to come about the things I learned.
The final part of the day was meeting our Son (Brian), his wife (Amber) and our Daughter (Jenny) at a wonderful Brazilian restaurant called Fogo de Chão. We had heard about this restaurant for years but hadn’t had a chance to visit.
The evening started with a traditional Brazilian drink called a Caipirinha. It is made with cachaca (distilled from sugar cane), sugar and lime. It had a wonderful, refreshing flavor and was cool looking as well……
Now, on to how this restaurant works. First of all, there is a salad bar that has all sorts of salads, vegetables and cheeses. I was particularly fond of the Tabouli.
Then comes the fun part……when this disc is green side up…..
When your plate (or your mouth) is full, you turn the disc over and magically the meat servers go away…..
You just have to remember……green means go, red means no!!!
After we had ingested as much red meat as we could stand, we of course had to have desert. Here is Jenny’s interpretation of how we all felt (but still room for more)…..
The deserts were all magnificent and this particular restaurant gets an A+ for presentation…..
It was a wonderful evening out with our kids and a fun memory for the future….
