First things first! I NEED to show you some photos from girls night last week with my mama and sister. We went out to eat at a local Southwestern Native American restaurant called Black Sheep Cafe in Provo. It was my mom’s last night in town and so we wanted to make sure it was a great one complete with yummy food 🙂 It was late at night when we ate & the restaurant lighting left a little to be desired, so the photos aren’t too too great. BUT trust me when I say that it was both beautiful & scrumptious in person!
^^ Um, how cool is that?! ^^
^^ My sister, Mariah, & my mama! Aren’t they so pretty? As always, I’m the one behind the camera 🙂 ^^
^^ These are their green chili frites. Lord, have mercy, these were some of the best fries/frites I have ever had in my life. The fried egg MADE IT. And the cheese. And the green chili. ^^
^^ I ordered the buffalo nickel burger, which has lemon-rosemary mayo, jack cheese, grilled onions, arugula, tomatoes, a cabernet sauvignon reduction, and a buffalo patty, all squished between a hearty pretzel bun, plus a side of MORE fries, but these ones were rosemary cotija. Yeah. EVERY BIT as good as it sounds. ^^
^^ Mariah got their famous chimichanga, which has braised pork, red chile sauce, cheddar & jack cheese, olives, avocados, tomatoes, rice, beans…and lots of other things. This thing was GIGANTIC. And so delicious. ^^
^^ My mom got one of their specials that night, which was scallops swimming in a chardonnay cream sauce + shaved brussels sprouts. The scallops were cooked to tender perfection, and although the sauce was a bit spicy, it was super good. ^^
Okay! Back to our regular programming 🙂
