Favorite things: Food

Here are some of my favorite foodie escapades lately:

The sweet potato fries at The Bayou 

Portions may be bigger than the menu makes them appear. These fries were basically never ending. NEVER ENDING.

Chip

I finally tried the infamous Chip! If you haven’t heard of them they are a chocolate chip cookie and milk DELIVERY service. They are based out of Provo, but have a Salt Lake pop up on the weekend. Their cookies are gigantic and delicious.

Chicken burrito bowls ala buzzfeed

I’m all about meal prep lately [who am I?], but often when I try to copy trendy recipes they don’t translate. This was an exception. I loved it so much. Simple, but good. Get the recipe here.

Feast Fest

Our friends did a series of food movie nights and it was truly the best. My favs were probably Chocolat and Ratatouille. Classics for a reason.

Can’t watch Chocolat without mass amounts of chocolate.

Frida Bistro 

I’ve been dying to go here for ages and it did not disappoint [Thnx Mindy for making my food/birthday dreams come true].

Carnitas de puerco and chipotle mashed potatoes. Yum.

Can you see that deliciousness? No, ok, LET ME ENHANCE THAT FOR YOU.

Plus the ambience is great too – inside and out.

Food & art are two of my favorite things and I loved how they decorated everything.

And last, but not least, the Birthday eating extravaganza

[FOR EXPERIENCED EATERS ONLY]

There were pancakes:

Courtesy of Original Pancake House, duh. If you need a recommendation my go to order is banana pancakes and a side of bacon.

Practically every “bite” on the menu at Even Stevens,

and Cheesecake Factory

Terrible picture, but it tasted oh-so-good.

Of course all that birthday food was made better by the fact that I shared it with the best of people. Thanks for the birthday love everyone!

Bonus [non-food] favorite thing: Ziggy helping me unwrap my birthday gifts
