happy birthday mom!

tonight, the family got together to celebrate my mom's birthday while at dinner. my mom has been raving about the restaraunt "fire and ice" that's located in five points. she told us how her and her coworkers love to eat their for lunch all the time, and it is the place she chose to eat at on her special day. it's a bit pricey, but it's an all you can eat with an awesome experience. basically, you head to "the market," grab a bowl, and pick out your meat, vegetables, pasta, and sauces. mix and match, any combination you'd like. then you take your bowl to the grill chef where you watch him cook your selections into a great meal. you can do this repeatedly with many different choices. also, they supply you with warm tortillas, rice, and a free salad bar is included with your meal. here's a picture of the grill chef cooking up our creative masterpieces...furthermore, here is a list of the selections in which you can decide from: sirloin, chicken, turkey, lamb, salmon, calamari, shrimp, scallops, sausage, hamburger, tofu, red onions, green peppers, jalapeƱo peppers, chopped fresh garlic, water chestnuts, broccoli, snow peas, tomatoes, black olives, roasted red and yellow peppers, mushrooms, squash, zucchini. as well as choosing from sauces like zesty pomodoro, sweet chili, fajita, greenberg's teriyaki, alfredo, and honey curry to name a few. it was delicious, and fun to see who came back with what. so after we all ate, mom opened up her presents, and we all sang happy birthday to her. we had a great time just being with family in honor of my mom and her growing age. =P happy birthday mom, we love you more than anything!

Y'know, I've wondered about that place. My parents went once and had HORRIBLE service, so I'm glad to know that's not typical.

ahh, we had good service for the most part, but then again there were only about 3-4 other families in there.

but we did comment on how much it must suck if it were a busy night...
