Bacon’s Show and Tell

30 Nov

Welcome my friends to November’s Bacon’s Show and Tell.

For November – we are sharing party pictures focusing on Thanksgiving. What did you and your family do for Thanksgiving – or any other big holiday where you are.  Did your family get together?  Did you go out to eat?  Did you cook out?

Since mom and dad were married 11 years ago, they started a yearly tradition of eating out at a special place on Thanksgiving.  They go downtown to a restaurant called Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse in Atlanta, Georgia.

   When you get to the table, there is a disc on the table.  One side is green for go – as in bring the food to my belly – snorts.  The other side is red – as in I’m so full I’m going to blow!  This is one of daddy’s all time favorite restaurants in the entire world.  Talk about a meat bonanza.  They have a huge salad bar with everything you can imagine and then you flip your disc to green and all of these wonderful gauchos come to your table with meat in spears cutting it table side.  Can you lick your lips and say yummy?

  But mom, she loves these little rolls called PÃO DE QUEIJO that are served at the tables in baskets.  Mom calls them heaven on earth and saved herself for these all week long.  They are warm, soft cheesy bread rolls that are brought to your table in baskets throughout your entire meal.  It’s like magic.  As soon as the basket is empty, it is quickly replenished.  Mom/dad wouldn’t admit to how many baskets they went through.  The only thing they would say is that they are back to no bread now.  Makes you wonder huh?  They are made with sweet and sour yucca flour and Parmesan cheese and are gluten-free.

   One of the meats that the serve that are mom/dad’s favorite is called PICANHA which is the prime part of the top sirloin.  Who needs turkey on thanksgiving huh?  Which mom says they do have but this picanha is worth saving one’s self for.  It is also the restaurants signature steak.  They lightly seasoned it with rock salt and slice it thin to whatever degree you want it – medium, well or rare.  As you can see in this picture, dad is jumping head first and asking questions later.  Yes it it that good.

So this is our part of blast from the past in 2004 when mom/dad started this tradition of going out for their holiday.  We hope that you enjoyed it my friends!

    oh I enjoyed it…. and your dad was very brave to look so relaxed on that giant knife … do you think it’s possible to make that “heaven on earth” at home? I would like to try it, even when it is never the same as the one we ate on such a special place :o)
