I'm just here for the food!

Eventually I will post about the notes I took in all the wonderfully uplifting classes I attended. But today's Women's Conference post is dedicated to one of the best things in life: food, glorious food.

For some reason I feel that I can spend ridiculous amounts of money for special treats I can't get anywhere else. You have already seen the pictures of the cheese curds and lemon custard ice cream I had on the way to Provo. Here are a few pictures of the wonderful delicacies I partook of during my two days at BYU.
These are the best yummy-i-licious spiced almonds. And of course they taste better in the blue and white paper cone. Last year I waited until the last day and stood in a ridiculously long line. But I learned from my mistakes and this year I grabbed some up the first morning. Good thing, because I never had the chance to buy lunch, so they had to sustain me all day long. We all missed lunch because we never wanted to stand in a long line, and so when the afternoon session was over we rushed to our favorite Italian place La Dolce Vita. Yes this is where I ate with Diana just two weeks ago. I got the pasta this time and it was yummy.
The next morning I had this divine mint brownie for breakfast. So good!!!

Later that day I had a delightful chicken taco salad for Costa Vida. Sadly I was so hungry that I ate it before I remembered to take a picture of it. Dang, I hate it when that happens.
Here is my sister Kris purchasing strawberries and whip cream for the crepes we would have for breakfast thanks to my sister Jen. We also had Nutella with the strawberry crepes. Heaven on earth, I tell ya. Just as good as IHOP.

And finally our two sister in laws joined us for a feast at Brick Oven. It was scrumptious pizza and conversation. Such good times. I am so blessed to have these wonderful women in my life. Glad to know I am stuck with them for eternity as well. There was much laughing and sharing and feasting. It was the perfect end to a perfect day.
And don't you think great food makes everything better.

You are too funny! My husband's family has two places they will eat in Provo. Brick Oven, or Los Hermanos.

You are making me terribly hungry. All that food. I'm going to get some ice cream.

love brick oven - we used to do field trips there because the owners' grand-daughter was one of my preschoolers - yummers!

okay, I'm starving and I'm left with Cinco De Mayo food WITHOUT the benefit of Los Hermanos, crud!

Wow T that sounds like a very symbiotic relationship.

Sorry about your Cinco De Mayo, we are having leftovers from last night.

I love Brick Oven! I've never seen a pasta bar like theirs anywhere else on the planet -- do they still have a pasta bar?

AMEN sistah! I love BRICK OVEN! And I love those cheese curds in Beaver. I especially love the salsa ones.

Is Funny Farmer in that pic?

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Yes Crash, FF is barely in this picture, in the green shirt.
