ON THE HOOK FOOD TRUCK LADIES DAY!

Well….this past week we were in for a major treat.  You may not know this, but I have been trying to track down the “On the Hook” food truck for several weeks now.  I’ve been pretty patient…waiting and waiting and waiting for it to come to our local “Tractor Supply Store”….and then I thought it was coming and it didn’t….but FINALLY last week…IT CAME HERE!!!

So I rounded up the usual suspects, my other wonderful mom friends, Lisa Fowler, Silvia, Kelly and Kristie and their kids so we could go and enjoy the food truck experience.  We’ll….they did not disappoint!! One portion was really enough for two people, and the fish was just so perfectly cooked.  No kidding…these guys from Alaska do not mess around when it comes to their fish and chips.  They were total pros– we placed our orders and ten minutes later we were stuffing our faces.  And to boot, they have their own sauces and their fry sauce had a really refreshing kick to it…was thinking maybe siracha?  YUM!!

If you see this truck run…don’t walk….get your fish and chips on…it is a fantastic addition to the area.  It can be found all over Utah including Park City and Heber.  Just SUPER EXCITED to have amazing fish and chips here!! Everyday it’s like the Heber Valley is just getting to be more and more of an amazing food hub.   Oh…and you won’t want to go too late…they only have a limited supply each day!

We love you ON THE HOOK!!  Looks like you’ve got us ON THE HOOK!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

CRAZY FOR CORNBELLY’S

 

We had a little too much fun at the Cornbelly’s Corn Maze a few weeks ago!  What an amazing place!  I swear the corn maze must be 2 acres.  It was HUGE!  But that’s not all the fun they offered; located at Thanksgiving Point in Salt Lake City, The Cornbelly Maze is a fall Utah tradition!

With about a bazillion games and events for kids to participate in, it is a total blast.  I’m pretty sure we stayed for at least six hours of exhausting fun.  There must have been 500 people there but there were so many games and events there was plenty for everyone to do.

It’s just a short drive from Park City and completely worth the trip.  I’d encourage everyone to visit this super fun family event. It’s only available during the month of October so you won’t want to miss it next year.  Mark your calendars!

 

 

A DAY AT THE PUMPKIN PATCH AND HAY MAZE

One of the greatest joys of living in the Heber Valley is the fall Pumpkin patch events and Hay Mazes!  At the Kohler Creamery, which is a Heber Valley wonder, you can find some of the nicest people making cheese and serving up ice cream and fun for the fall.  It’s a great event to undertake with young children or family!

Check out our fun day there! Such a cute place and great for being outdoors!

A VISIT TO THE OLD GOAT

 

Last night we had the serious pleasure of dining at Heber’s newest restaurant, “The Old Goat”.

We started our dinner by scouting out what everyone else was eating…no kidding…everything looked so good, we were just eating with our eyes first!

Our meal began with their DELICIOUS Buffalo Cauliflower.  YUM YUM YUM.  We could have eaten three more portions of this delight.  So tasty….just so good.  Jared and I both thought..”Well, if the meal is starting this good….let’s hope the rest just follows in suite.”

Next came our actual dinner….Jared enjoyed their incredible burger–talk about eating with your eyes first!  It was an absolute work of art.  And my husband demolished it!

I enjoyed the Grilled Vegetable platter with Grilled Shrimp.  Everything that came out of that kitchen was amazing.  And great service to boot.  Our server was such a sweet girl and so helpful.  It was her first night working dinner and she managed it like an old pro.

Lastly we decided on desert- the Fried Twinkies….Yes…that’s right….Fried TWINKIES.  I have never eaten them before. I’ve seen them available at carnivals or events, but had no idea they could taste so good.  Jared and I both enjoyed a bit of them and then brought the rest home for our wonderful baby sitter Jenessa.  And we are certain she ate them the minute she left our house.  We’re not even sure they made it to her car.  Rest in peace you delicious twinkies.

What was the crazy part of it all, was that for how delicious everything was and with their outstanding service, this restaurant is affordable.  So reasonable we couldn’t believe it.

Great food.  Great Service and Goats everywhere.  What more can you ask for?  Time to give it a try!

COUNTRY LIVING IN THE FALL

 

A seriously great Sunday with our girl. We made sauce today, an apple pie with apples from our trees, homemade chai snd then enjoyed dinner with our wonderful Oma & Opa. We love fall. Its just our favorite time of year because we finally have downtime as a family!

When we moved into our new home there were two amazing bonuses– 1- Two enormous apple trees nestled in the side yard and 2- a gorgeous, healthy raspberry bush!

And I didn’t even mention that our new neighbors just got a foal named Starr.  My daughter has started referring to her as “her horsey”.  The neighbors have been so loving to Giada and just letting her really enjoy the horse raising experience.  I believe her learning stewardship for animals is priceless.

Anyway, fall is an awesome time to be neighborly.  So all these pies and goodies will go to our neighbors and friends.  And I hope you’re fall baking experience offers the same joy to everyone you love!

 

THE BAGEL DEN IS OPEN!

 

The Heber Valley just got even better as we welcomed our newest restaurant– The Bagel Den!

This place is absolutely the cutest new place to hit this area!  With a spacious seating area, indoor fireplace and friendly local staff, they’ve really done a fantastic job to make their location comfortable and welcoming.  And the bagels, well let’s just say they are DELICIOUS!  These are real New York style bagels people.  No kidding.  They have excellent flavor and texture.  Home grown, home made….YUM!

I can’t encourage you enough to try this wonderful new spot.  The folks operating this fine establishment are super friendly.  Really made me feel at home.

So what are you waiting for…it’s breakfast time somewhere in the world!  Go eat Bagels friends!!
