the communal community

a must try, must splurge delicious local provo restaurant.
yep
like i saideat lunch here
hmmm i look a little bit asleep
the campus of the byu. i used to work in that building in the foreground. ohhh... the days of waking up at 4am to do menial janitorial work. what was i thinking?
one of the fine days spent in provo... most of the ben family went to lunch at the fine establishment of communal.
yumm.
a nice eclectic blend of lots of fun experimental foods. open for lunch and dinner. i hope to try dinner there someday.
(and it also has a very high rating in zagat, which is a big deal to the emily and ben family)

then we all visited byu... the place ben and i went to school in the olden days. also where we met (or at least somewhere south of campus).

also went to the carl bloch exhibit at the museum of art at byu. it was very lovely, although i'll be snobbish and say i didn't feel as impressed as i did in denmark.

nice to see the old BYU spread before our eyes at the base of the mountains. It has always been a dramatic setting. So much is the same, so much is different. Thanks for the taste of yesteryear and today.

You're always taking naps in the middle of lunch.

I keep hearing about Communal. Another really good restaurant that's fairly recently opened there is La Jolla Grove in Riverwoods. Most of their food is locally grown and in fact a lot of it is from their own greenhouses. Very yum.

So, I have family in MIchigan. Marc went to the big chill and we made a visit over the holidays. I had never been to Ann Arbor and love love love that cute city. YES, Zingerman's so so good. And, Animal, Veg, Miracle is by far a life changing book for me. It seems like we have lots in common. If you are in California ever lets please meet!!! XO!

i have heard of the communal which is funny since i have never even been to utah but i think its because i follow so many mormon bloggers and its owned by a mormon, yes? oh gosh, love you guys.

Umm I like the salad. Salads keep you awake. The painting behind Dave is cool, particularly because the pattern of her dress seems to continue in his sweater.
