"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

chef's table

This is Chef's Table in Orem. It's been a goal of mine to eat here before I finish school and leave Utah. Three problems though: 1. It's expensive. 2. It's not the kind of place you go to alone. and 3. I never really had anything worth celebrating to justify going and spending a lot of money on food.
Well, problems solved. Spencer promised that if he got this job offer he wanted, we'd go. He got the offer, so we went. It was a very fun, enjoyable evening. We even decided that for dessert we'd go to the cheapest place we could find; just so we'd partake of both ends of the food quality spectrum
. So, after our jaunt around Barnes & Noble, we got milkshakes from the drive-through at In-N-Out.

This is what I ate at the restaurant:
:: mixed greens spinach leaf salad with balsamic vinaigrette and fresh parmesean::
:: prosciutto stuffed chicken with a creamy swiss cheese sauce + rice and mixed vegetables ::

it was really fun to get all dressed up and act like adults for a night

Nice restaurants are one of the joys of being married--anniversaries and occassions to celebrate with delicious food!

Sounds like a fun night! Do you have any pictures of you and Spencer dressed up?

No, no pictures. Dummy that I am, didn't think to bring a camera.
