Gratitude #18 - Restaraunts
I am thankful for people willing to cook and clean up. I am thankful for the fact that when I don't have time or am too tired, we can still eat by getting in the car and driving to a restaurant. The pioneers didn't have that privilege.
I'll admit it. I LOVE to eat out and I LOVE to try new places. And if I happen to go to the same place twice, I like trying different things on the menu. I have some friends who go to the same restaurant and order the same thing every Friday night. Not my cup of tea. The minute a new eating place opens in town, I am one of the first to make the cash register ring.
While in SLC last week, my friends and I tried a new hip soup, sandwich and cupcake shop called DIVA's. I had a mozzarella tomato sandwich and butternut squash soup. The soup was deeee-vine! Deep gold, flecked with freshly ground pepper chunks, it was smooth, hearty, earthy and seductive. Then I indulged in an after-dinner treat with a pumpkin cream-cheese cupcake topped with caramelized ginger. The cupcake wasn't as good as the soup.
I am thankful for good restaurants!
