Today was a big day on the wedding front! We met with our venue coordinator to set our wedding menu! This is a HUGE step in planning, and I can't believe that it's here already. About a year ago when we booked our venue, and the coordinator said "we'll meet two months out to finalize a menu", it seemed like FOREVER. I'm so excited! I'll post our final menu once we have more of an idea of numbers...
After our meeting and all the talk about food, Adam and I were ravenous. We headed back towards home and Adam decided where we were going.
No. Not sushi... I know you thought that's where I was going with this.
Here's a hint:
Yes, that's me with a 12-foot tall red Weber grill.
We went to the Weber Grill Restaurant! It's this great place where they cook everything (well, the proteins and some veggies) on well-ventilated indoor Weber charcoal grills! It's a favorite of ours that we tend to forget about. They have some truly excellent food, as well as one of my favorite side dishes ANYWHERE. More on that in a minute.
First of all, this place has pretzel rolls and cheddar butter. Need I say more?
There were two of those rolls eaten... then our appetizers came. Neither of us could make up our mind as to what we wanted, so we got an appetizer combo. We each got one beef skewer, one rib, one grilled chicken skewer, and one BBQ shrimp skewer...oh, and some onion strings.
I decided on something a bit healthy for my entree so that I could enjoy my favorite side without guilt. I got the grilled cajun catfish with all butter and sauce on the side, sauteed spinach, and...wait for it... maple whipped sweet potatoes.
Adam got a BBQ combo of Midwest-style BBQ pork and brisket... hence the title of the post. Check out all that BBQ pork!
I may have helped polish that off as well. It was just SO good, and much better than any BBQ pork I could've made!
We sat in gluttonous blarginess after we finished eating for a few minutes...this really is a true Tale of Expansion... and then went to Best Buy to pick up a replacement remote for our upstairs TV. I'm going to attempt to stay up for Top Chef tonight, but I have a feeling my night will be interrupted by sleep. Can you believe tomorrow is already Thursday!?!
Some Bloggy News:
That's about all I've got for now! I'm quite beat...
