I’m Having a Love Affair

With Rosemary. Rosemary Clooney? No.  Well, yes.  I mean, it’s December, aren’t we all a little moon-eyed for her? {image via} I’m talking about the herb though, that beautiful buttery Rosmarinus Officinalis.  Did you know it’s actually part of the mint family?  Wikipedia told me so.  Apparently it’s also a symbol of remembrance and love. …

There’s a new kid on the block in Portland! The Brazilian steakhouse (churrascaria) restaurant, Fogo de Chão, opened a location on 6th Avenue a couple of weeks ago and I was invited to their grand opening dinner to get the full experience for myself.  I was able to take Mr. Won’t Run which is good…
