Recently my brother came into town for the weekend for the first time since moving to Kentucky. Of course, this meant a family get-together was in order. We hit The Streets at Southpoint for a wood fire grilled dinner at Firebird's...
Sad to say I have no pictures of our yummy dinner. It was way too dark in the restaurant for me to even want to dare to try to capture a good food shot. Pictures and dark lighting aside, the meal was delicious. I ordered the spinach salad and loaded baked potato (which was already well seasoned so I didn't even use any of the loaded toppings on it). And Mike ordered the Wood Grilled Salmon. We split as usual and both dishes were delicious and healthy enough that we didn't leave the restaurant in a food comma.
What a solid big brother I've been blessed with! He has undoubtedly been a positive influence in my life.
After dinner we made a stop by the ultimate treats shop, The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. We picked up an Apple Pie apple as well as my all time favorite (drum role please) The Monster Apple.
It's as good as it looks, every bite.
I use to be a chocolatier at The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory at Southpoint (or RMCF as we called it). It's owned by the sweetest Christian couple who have one of the most amazing testimonies of God's work in their lives that I've ever heard. It's worth stopping in there for a generous free sample and a quick chat if you live in the area.
And yes, because I know you're thinking it, I ate A LOT of chocolate covered apples when I worked there. Man, I miss that job.
My charming husband decided to demonstrate what a monster eating a Monster Apple might look like...
It's good to get your inner theatrical self on every now and then, right?
Much chocolate was had by all, and that is what I call ending the evening on a high note.
