2fer Tuesday.


2 QUESTIONS FOR MY BLOG READERS:

1. I need BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS.
I'm going on a 12 hour car drive 😳 and need a good book or three that makes the time fly by quickly. 

Not anything to deep or depressing.

If it's a true story? Even better!

2. I need yummy RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATIONS {for dinner} in Salt Lake City.

We are heading there for a wedding and are going out with some of our favorite friends to dinner one night.  I want something GOOD! Thanks to some blog reader recommendations a few years back - we discovered THE RED IGUANA which we LOVED! We've been back twice! Now I'm wanting to try someplace new.  

Any ideas?

  2. Jane Eyre. I know it seems intimidating, but DON'T be! It is such a page turner. I gobbled it up in 3 days like it was a Harry Potter book.

  5. Downton Salt Lake also has a Blue Iguana, might be fun for you to compare it to the Red Iguana ;)
    Other Mexican suggestions:
    Alamexo
    Taqueria 27 {in Holladay}
    there is also an awesome food truck park in Holladay right down the street from Taqueria called Soho Food Park
    If you are in the mood for Italian:
    Cafe Molise
    Settebello Pizzeria
    A good burger:
    Copper Onion

    Enjoy your trip!

  7. I know you are wanting a dinner location but next time you are in UT I recommend Cupbop food truck. Korean BBQ in a cup and so yummy. We are living in South Korea right now but seriously can't wait to go back to UT for Cupbop ��

  10. I loved "The Rent Collector". We listened to it on a long road trip and it was read with all different voices, very well done. I also recommend "Italian Village" at 5370 South 900 East in Murray (south of SLC). Get a pizza bender, it's a classic, and dipping sauce. It's not a fancy restaurant but it sure is good.

    The Copper Onion is fabulous. There is one called the Copper Kitchen by Taqueria 27 {in Holladay} that is owned by The Copper Onion people. There is a Cupbop now in Draper. Bruges Waffles and pommes frites with the andoulouse dipping sauce. 3 locations, I think.
