Wow, I'm in beef overload. I've eaten more meat in the past 4 days than any one person should eat in a lifetime. I've had so much meat, I can feel it sitting in my arteries. I had to walk to Walgreens today to pick up heartburn medication, because I feel like some of the beef is sitting near my heart.
My beefy weekend started Friday night at Fogo de Chao for Mike's birthday. If you've never been, it's a Brazilian steakhouse that offers about a dozen different types of beef, served to you at your table. Dozens of men walk around with their slabs of beef and offer you a chunk. I ate? A lot. I mean, I had to get my money's worth!
The beefiness continued today with lunch at Portillo's. Two of my friends were in town visiting, so we decided to meet there. I got an Italian beef sandwich dipped once in au jous. (Mike's advice? Have it dipped at least twice and get a side of cheese sauce.) It was delicious, but gut-filling, so I insisted on walking a mile home afterwards to work off the massive amount of calories I just consumed.
Tonight? Oh god, I just realized I thawed out pork chops for dinner.
