John and I have our good friends, Karen and George, visiting and we are off to the wilds of Utah tomorrow. To Teasdale, UT, for a stay at the Red River Lodge, dinner at Cafe Diablo and a visit to the Capitol Reef National Park. Then on Sunday, a trip to one of the best spots in the world, Bryce Canyon National Park. If you’ve never been there, put it on your list of things to do before you are too old to do them. Getting back to the title of this blog, when the kids were little and we would travel out west to see the national parks, we developed a mode of eating we called Utah rules. This was not, yay, pump your fist, Utah Rules! but what to do in a dining situation in Utah. Since we had eaten many subpar meals in Utah, we decided that the best way to approach the cuisine was to limit it to the least number of preparation steps; the classic being, kill cow, cook cow, eat cow. This would apply to an unembellished steak. Getting your desired doneness, well, a crap shoot.
So anyway, I’ll be gone for a few days. I hope to blog on Sunday but may not have a chance until Tuesday after an overnight in Las Vegas with a dinner at Bobby Flay’s, Mesa Grill, and an evening out seeing Ka. I’ll let you know all about it.
