Last Thursday the husband and I packed up the kid and the dog and drove about 5 hours west to the most awesome teeny tiny town ever. Boulder, Utah. You may have heard about it before if you read this post from two years ago. Otherwise I'm willing to bet you've never heard of it before. But put it on your map, because it has one of THE BEST restaurants this side of the Mississippi.
The thought of that long of a drive with a 10-month-old didn't totally appeal to me, but I had a (rather significant) birthday this past Saturday and the restaurant is soooo good, and I figured that I've been working hard enough lately that I deserved a break, so I figured we could manage. :)
We stayed at the Boulder Mountain Lodge again, and we ate every single meal at Hell's Backbone Grill. I ate the pork tenderloin chop twice. I screwed up on the third night and had their chicken. I'm still dreaming about that pork chop... There's a reason it's been written up in the New York Times, is loved by Sunset magazine, has appeared numerous times in Bon Appetit and is Zagat rated. It. Is. Amazing.
We did a tiny bit of hiking, but mostly we just hung out with Lachlan and enjoyed a few sunsets.
And today? Well, today it's back to business as usual!
