minus the wine, of course.
last saturday the whole brown clan was all in one city! my parents came to bring bailey kate to EFY, and then they hung out with the rest of their children while she was off on that adventure for a week. and just our luck – momma shari kunz came to town at the same time!
we soaked up all our time with the fam. we ate out a lot, which is a rare treat for us and our strict budget lifestyle. we went to settebello and dolcetti gelato, we had a picnic at memory grove with moochies majorly messy sandwiches, we hit up lone star taqueria on our way down to utah county, and topped it off with plenty of treats from the likes of banbury cross donuts and farrs frozen yogurt. all the hot spots! all the deliciously unhealthy hot spots.
we also went shopping and touring park city main street, went to a community pioneer day breakfast and parade, had a birthday party of our little cousin ruby, and played some intense rounds of the new family favorite game, perpetual commotion.
here’s to family bonding!
Davido and I went to Avenues Bistro on Third for breakfast this morning, because David is on spring break and doesn’t have to leave early in the morn for class, and because I have a wholehearted love of breakfasting and brunching. It’s way cooler than going out to dinner. Cause it’s morning! Most people are rushing off to work or grumbling about not wanting to roll out of bed.
So when you’re spending the wee hours of the morning out at a cutesy restaurant, well that’s somethin special.
Sooo, we love our neighborhood and are trying to experience all it has to offer. The Avenues Bistro on Third is just up the street and always looks quaint and cute, so we decided to check it out.
It’s all that local/organic stuff and it was, well, it was just all right, I ain’t gon lie. Not great. Tasted like homemade. Only my homemade might be even better. Ha.
I got the frittata with tomatoes, cojita cheese and spinach. David got the huevos rancheros. But they were both just aiight. (And they played loud 80s music that didn’t really fit the setting.)
Doesn’t mean it wasn’t a magical morn with my main man, though. OH and props to them for having a really cool salt tray (in photo above). Sea salt, pink Himalayan salt and smoked hickory salt! Cool.
Also, I posted again on Hanalei’s page today – check it out!
salt lake has been covered in ice and snow for more than 2 weeks now. for someone with my level of balance and grace, every step is treacherous. but it’s nice to look at.
