Why does my life revolve around food?

Alex and I have a favorite sandwich shop, but the sad part is that there are none located in Utah...or at least none were located in Utah. Oh, I should probably tell you what place it is yeah? Well I'll let you in on the secret that is Port of Subs. So good.

Previously the only time that we would be able to get sandwiches from Port of Subs was when we would go to visit family. In Vegas there is a shop just down the road from Steve and Anna's, and we always make it a point to stop by and grab a sandwich before we come back up to Utah.

Oregon is a little more tricky since the Port of Subs is actually in Idaho. Yes, we typically call the sandwich shop there when we are on road trips to make sure that they are open when we are passing through.

The question on everyone's mind is 'What makes Port of subs better than (insert generic sub shop)?' Simple answer: the bread. They don't need to church up the bread by adding herbs and cheeses . Also they slice the meats fresh kind of like getting them straight from the deli.

Yes, we love our Port of Subs

Anyways, the best part of this whole story is that there is now a Port of Subs within reasonable driving distance of where we live. Alex spoiled me a few weeks back by going all the way up just to grab us subs and brought them down so we could enjoy them together. Just another reason why I am so in love with my wife.

My Friend the Fish

This past Friday we made our way up to the Cheesecake Factory which I would have to say was a great move on our part. Now everyone reading this is probably saying to themselves right now something along the lines of "oh I'm totally jealous." or "Hunny, we should go to Cheesecake Factory this weekend and get some cheesecake."

I will let you in on a little secret though. You see when I go to Cheesecake Factory my mouth is not watering over the kagillion different types of cheesecake they offer, but instead I am focused on one thing, and one thing only:

That my friends is the Mahi Mahi Mediterranean. Best. Dish. Ever.

Don't worry though, we did get cheesecake as well (Red Velvet and regular with strawberries). All around solid weekend that's for sure.
