If you were following me on Snapchat over the summer, you most likely saw my many escapades to the Salt Lake City farmer’s market and you might know that there are two main reasons I frequent the market: heirloom tomatoes and limeade. The tomatoes are a discussion for another day, but the limeade you can get on sunny Saturday mornings downtown is out of this world, and I’m always sad when the market ends for the season and I can’t get it anymore. That is, until now – because I can now sip on a glass of it anytime I want at Sweet Lake Biscuits & Limeade.
If you find yourself scouring the Internet day-in and day-out for new places to eat in the Salty City, look no further. Just hop in your car and head to From Scratch! This tucked-away spot was one of the best we’ve been to in a while and we’re already craving more.
If you ask my husband what his favorite restaurant is, he’ll say Spitz without hesitation. I first went here with my coworkers back in the beginning of this year and I was immediately hooked, and I knew Colby would be even more addicted than me so I took him there as soon as I could. Since then, we’ve been stuffing our faces with the best Mediterranean food every time we’re in SLC.
Here in Utah, we get three extra holidays per year. One is the 24th of July, which is the celebration of the day that pioneers arrived in the valley in 1847. And the other two are known as LDS General Conference. On the first weekends in April and October, it seems like the whole state shuts down as members of the Mormon faith tune into a conference from the leaders of the church for two days straight. But, when your husband works in a restaurant on Temple Square (where the conference takes place), it’s the opposite of a holiday. It’s actually two of the busiest weekend of the year at The Roof Restaurant, as thousands of people flock downtown to attend General Conference in person.
Press sample: I was given a free meal at Oregano Italian Kitchen in exchange for my honest review. Of course, all opinions are my own.
Another week, another date night – but not really because it seems like Colby and I have to work super hard to fit a date night into our schedules. He usually has one or two nights off a week, but we also try to fit in time with friends and family when we can, along with the random errands we have to run and our other commitments, like soccer teams or church activities. With all of that going on, we only had time for one official date night this whole past month.
We started our night with a FIFA 15 tournament. Both Colby and I love soccer and for the most part, we actually enjoy playing video games together. But when it comes to FIFA, I don’t always love playing with Colby, because he’s so good at it. I can maybe win against him in one out of every 20 games we play.
This time, though, I totally won! I grabbed my puppy and spun her around the room in celebration. Both Amaya and Colby were a little taken off guard. But I won! It was definitely a good start to date night.
