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.
Raise your hand if you just knew my first post about Iceland was going to be food-related! Typical, right? When we arrived in Iceland, our first stop was Reykjavik, where we hung out for our first day before heading off to the Golden Circle. We ended up passing through Reykjavik a few other times on our trip, which meant we got to try a lot of different food around the city. Spoiler alert: all of it was amazing!
Disneyland: the one place children look forward to standing in line all day so they can get on their favorite rides – Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and my personal favorite, Tower of Terror (seriously, the best). But when you’re 23 with no kids and married to a chef, it’s the place you go to eat. Both Disneyland and California Adventure have tons of good food and there’s a lot that you can’t find anywhere else, so you have to make the most of your visit!
We only spent two days in the parks this time around, so we definitely didn’t get everywhere we wanted to, and I’m far from being a Disney expert, but I think we rounded up some pretty delicious options for you to try out the next time you’re there. Also, please excuse my sub-par photos – I really didn’t want to lug around my DSLR all day in the parks. So without further ado, let’s start with Disneyland.
I have to say, my Trader Joe’s review posts are probably some of my favorites to write. Or, I should say, prepare for – because it basically means I get to eat a bunch of really unhealthy and sugary food at the same time and take pictures of the process. This past week, all of the Trader Joe’s holiday products showed up, so obviously I had to indulge.
I know my last post (the pumpkin one) was a little late in the month of October and probably didn’t give you a lot of time to go try all the things I recommended (although some of that stuff is still in stores, so you still can), so I’m making an effort to post this one early-ish in the month so you can go eat delicious things!
TJ’s has a lot of food gifts going on right now, so I bought a few of those so you’ll know what to buy your friends, and also a few yummy things you’ll probably want to save for yourself. Maybe you’ll buy something with the intention of giving it to a friend, and instead, you’ll eat it. No judgement here.
