Blue Lemon

I just wanted to give a quick shout out to my favorite Utah restaurant which just opened a new location in Sandy about 10 minutes from my house, Blue Lemon!

In fact, last year I went to the Black Sheep Cafe in Provo and spent double what Blue Lemon cost me and I prefer the Blue Lemon meal.  Black Sheep wasn’t bad but i definitely wasn’t worth double.

It is served cafeteria style so you also save in waiter fees and tips.  The assembly line is out front so you can see your food being made.  They also have a large booth of delicious desserts.  Last time I went I got a flour-less chocolate cake and it was so rich I could only eat half of it. Delish!

So if you haven’t been go check out Blue Lemon.  You won’t be disappointed.

Oh and they also have a full breakfast menu that is delicious.

Now I’ve made myself hungry.  May just have to go there for lunch!

 

The Best Movie I’ve Ever Seen

I wrote this post on the disney blog about movies that changed my life and how to talk about them without offending or being a jerk. I think it is pretty well written so check it out

Rachel's Reviews

Please forgive me my friends for taking a slight detour off of Disney, but I thought it would be helpful before diving into the Renaissance (which will start after my Oliver and Company review) to talk about the experience of movies, both bad and good.  I know many of these upcoming films are not only favorites but near- sacred childhood experiences.  I know that because I agree.  For me attending The Little Mermaid was what Star Wars was for a lot of boys.  It was the movie that spoke to me and seemed to be telling my story.

I don’t want to give away my Little Mermaid review (which I will try to watch somewhat objectively but it’s going to be tough) but I remember first seeing it as well if not better than I remember my baptism which was the same year (yikes but true).   My Mom took…
