If you can't take the heat...

Well we finally found the perfect excuse to visit Daddy at work when his parents (aka Grandma and Grandpa) came for a visit. It was fun meeting all his students, and as usual he was proud to show off his girls!
The food was fabulous! For appetizers we ordered oyster beignets and chicken brochettes. Followed by Spinach salad with blue cheese, pears, and candied walnuts. For entrees my Mother in law and I had hoisin short ribs, my Father in law had red snapper, and gnocchi was split three A, Moo moo and the floor.

I've come to realize that saving the best for last is all about dessert! We shared three desserts bananas flambe, cinnamon creme brulee, and homemade candy bar with ganache. Yuuummmmm!!!!!

The girls were pretty well behaved except for the thin layer of food on the floor, the crying, the occasional spontaneous outbursts..."no!", "I want it", "I want down", and of course the child wielding the fork like a samurai sword.

Moo moo went crazy when John started cooking the bananas foster! When does pyromania manifest?

Thank you Daddy for having us! We love you!
