I'll make some more in depth posts later, but I just have to say, that this weekend was truly one of the best I've had in a long time. I had the pleasure of meeting some of my favorite 'Twirlies' (aka Twitter girlies) and let me just say, they are all amazing women and I am so lucky to call them my friends.
In another update, I also had a birthday this past week. I am officially old... but luckily still young enough that no one thought to gift me a consult with a surgeon. Small blessings, right?
Life has remained crazy and overwhelming and at the same time, so very brilliant. I can't wait to share more... after I've had some sleep!

This restaurant was a real treat! The Royal Street Cafe is located at Deer Valley Resort and the surroundings are absolutely beautiful.
The blueberry mojito was certainly a standout and a cocktail I'd not had previously. It may be Utah, but RSC certainly didn't scrimp on the booze so kudos for that. I'm really not a big drinker, but I'll make an exception for this.
While the fish and chips were very good (they used salmon and it was cooked to perfections) I have to say that my favorite bite ended up being the tuna tartare with white truffle. I know that tuna tartare is no longer 'cool' for foodies, but this was extremely good. It was light and fresh and the perfect appetizer for a summer day.
My dining companion enjoyed the chicken quesadilla as well as tomato soup that came with a grilled cheese sandwich.
The end of the meal brought those homemade ice cream sandwiches and let me just say, I was not disappointed. Trust me, I seriously considered ordering a second plate of them, they were that good. This is definitely a restaurant to which I wouldn't hesitate to return. For the price, the quality of the food was top notch.
