Wow, I’m loving how much you guys want to win homemade cookies!!! You have until 10am MST to enter, so keep the comments coming on this post and I’ll announce the winner this afternoon!
Last night Nate requested we celebrate his 4th 25th birthday by going to eat at Texas de Brazil. Now, if you’ve never been to a churascaria before, please note that it’s one of those restaurants you can make yourself sick at. You have these little red and green cards to turn over if you want gauchos with meat on skewers to bring you more food. It’s dangerous.
AND it’s all you can eat steak. What we have here is flank steak, bacon-wrapped chicken, Brazilian sausage, and lamb. And this is just the first plate (Nate’s was prettier than mine). I love that they flame-grill the meat to medium rare and only season it with salt…that’s the best way to do it in my opinion!
On top of it all they bring out these cheese-filled rolls, garlic mashed potatoes, and fried bananas to clear the palate.
Nate and I entered the place full of confidence. We’d been there before, we knew what we were doing. We had carefully eaten all day to be sure to stretch out our stomachs for the ridiculous meal ahead. Determination was the name of the game.
Ready, set, go! I don’t even remember how many times the gauchos brought meat over. There’s SO MUCH MEAT and so little time! We literally sat there just praying that the food would digest faster so we could eat more. That’s normal, right?
I have to say, Nate finished with a victory. Again, I don’t even remember how many plates, but I DO remember that I was about to fall over in my chair from the food coma while there was still food left on my plate while the birthday boy finished off one more piece of garlic sirloin. My husband is so sexy 🙂
