I knew I'd done things worth blogging about since June 19th... There was the Arts Fest and 4th of July fireworks on the 5th of July...
But the thing I was logging on to mention today was my first trip to La Caille. Crystal ran a contest for hors-d' ouevres and dessert, and Annie, Sarah, and I qualified. In almost 18 years of living in Salt Lake City, I had never even pulled onto the driveway leading up to the restaurant. Its beautiful! We were seated on the patio, where peacocks, ducks, and a rooster just roam around while you eat. There were baby ducks and baby peacocks that were so cute. The grown-up peacocks were a little intimidating, though - one even helped himself to the bread in our bread basket.
And I tried escargot. I was really hesitant. I mean, it looked like tar coming out of the shell. But, taste...delicious. Still, consistency...disgusting. If I'm ever offered escargot again, I'm thinking consistency might win. But I tried it, and that's all that matters.
