You know the Rule: When your cancer patient wants to go out to eat? Take 'er out!
When she wants to go somewhere spendy--but finds a $25 off coupon? Find another $15 off coupon for yourself.
THEN take her out.







One day, I'm gonna go to Fogo De Chao and ONLY eat from the salad bar. You could. Honestly!
Hypothetically speaking, there's chicken salad and sliced prosciutto and delightful smoked salmon and beans and rice and soup and this RIDICULOUSLY perfect giant asparagus. You could finish your meal with a bowl of papaya and pineapple. Or two. You wouldn't go hungry. Your meal would kick ass.

Also, you'll never actually do it.







B's the biggest fan of garlic beef in the entire storied history of MOO.







But well done. For her. I'm a bloody plate guy.
AND--if you didn't already know--a total dick.










No one in the room is safe with me around.
B fake-posed for this pic so I could show you this.














I kept repeating this line. B didn't understand why.
Prolly liked it better than my 'Meat Farts' song on the drive home...

I've been the vegetarian at Fogo de Chao before. It was still good!

Glad to see that B is looking chipper.

It could still be GREAT, in fact.
Right after I kidnap all the asparagus in sight.
Then mebbe the pickled onions, sundried tomatoes and beets.

But then the beef ribs would waft by and I'd sense their warm, fatty, salty, artery-clogging aura and all bets would be off.

That looks like an amazing meal! I'm glad B seems in good spirits too!

Always a sucker for a bloody plate, eh? ;D

Ha--I had to laugh when you said B had to fake pose so you could take that picture. what is up with that old man!

I don't think you're a dick.

I'm glad B's up for going out too. What was that green, frothy beverage? and was it any good?

I think he's just got resting B-face.
But his resemblance to The Rich Guy from The Great Lebowski compelled me to take his picture...

Oh--and the green frothy beverage is a traditional Brazilian limeade. I'm not sure how readily they offer it these days, but it's the only beverage besides tap water that Fogo will refill for free.

Yay for B feeling like going out!  And that looks like some good food.


I LOLed at you being sneaky and asking B to pose to be able to snap a pic of the guy.

Oh, she HAD to see that dude.

Great reason to flex the coupons

Come Tuesday--when the Neulasta kicks her hard in the ass--she'll be far too tired to go out. Not to mention how dangerous it will be. So she'll eat beef while her white count's high!

He needs all kinds of enemas, that guy. Obviously never ate a salad before in his life and is NOT happy.

BTW, I love Brenda's new look! She's adorable!

It took her a bit to get comfortable enough--or hot enough with a hat on--to go bareheaded and proud. Or defiant. Perhaps a bit of both!

That's great that she was feeling up for a night out :)

This is the third weekend since her last chemo cycle.
It's always her strongest weekend...Monday, downhill starts again.

B is looking way more cheerful than I would have expected. Clearly you are taking good care of her!
