We’re off…

Filed under: family, food, me, random — Jana @ 1:24 pm

We are headed to Utah tomorrow for the next week. We have a bunch of family reunions and stuff to attend. I am excited to see my family. And I am really excited to eat at all the great restaurants that they don’t have here.

  • Cafe Rio- Pork salad with the house dressing (no matter what you must try the pork, so good!)
  • Bajios- Veggie Burrito, with delicious sweet onions and corn (not to mention sour cream and guacamole!)
  • Wingers- That have pretty much the only hot wings in the world that I love. (I also have to restock my supply of their Freakin’ Amazing Sauce…and no I didn’t make that name up, but I sure could have)
  • Betos- for those late night cravings for their delicious plain bean and cheese burritos, the tortillas are awesome.
  • Magleby’s Fresh- Their breakfasts are to die for. I get the french toast, Lee gets the pancakes, but both are fluffy and delicious and come with their caramely syrup…And never forget the fresh berries and cream and fresh squeezed orange juice. (not to mention it’s all you can eat, not that I can ever get through even one plate it’s so rich, but back in college it was on!)
  • Tucanos- lots of good stuff (mostly meats) but I go there for one reason and one reason only- Grilled Pineapple…mmmmmmmmmmm!

So talking about all this food makes me hungry and wish I were eating it now. I am surprised that Lee and I didn’t weigh 600 lbs when we lived in Utah from all the great stuff there is to eat. I’ll tell you one thing about them mormons…they know food. At least the way I like it anyway!

So expect a pretty dry spell in the blogging department for a while, we will probably be back on the 8th.



  1. I hope you guys have fun up there. We’re heading to Utah on the 10th, I too can’t wait for the good food up there. We really need a place like Cafe Rio or Costa Vida down here.

  2. Don’t worry, Tiger will be in good hands. Although I think I’m going to go through withdrawals while you’re gone! That’s too long!!!

  3. Your food list was torture! I am now officially starving. Magleby’s sound amazing right about now. I’m so sad that we won’t get to see you guys this weekend. I think we’re pretty much the only ones in the fam that aren’t going to be there…besides Reese. We’ll miss you guys. You are coming to the reunion in August now right?

  4. You are totally right on the food. I love to travel and one reason is to try the food everywhere I go. I would die for fish & chips & gravy in Newfoundland right now!
    I didn’t know you were coming to Utah until just now. I am sure that you will be bogged down visiting family, but I would love to see if there is a time we could arrange to hang out. I can’t wait to see Carmen and Tristan together now that they are a little older. Carmen still would trump Tristan (she has the walking thing over him) but I think it would still be fun. CALL ME!!!
