Blue Plate Diner

I am a graduate of West Jordan High School and am proud to be counted among some wonderful Jaguar alumni, but I blogged about that a few days ago, you can read all about that here. This month's breakfast gathering was at a little hole in the wall called Blue Plate Diner!

It has been my experience that oftentimes these little hole in the wall places are the absolute best finds! I would say that applies to Blue Plate Diner!

This place is hopping busy! The ambiance is friendly old style awesomeness! Even more perfect with a little bit of old America thrown in with the old ads around the room and the old license plates! Really liked the Presidential place mats!

I ordered the "Classic with Meat" with bacon, of course! Darwin so perfectly described their bacon by saying it is "to die for"!

Have you been there? What do you think?

National Donut Day

Today is National Donut Day! Did you know that? How are you celebrating? For those that are close to a Krispy Kreme, they are giving away free donuts! Locally, here in the Salt Lake Valley, Dunford Bakery is giving $1 off a dozen donuts!

A little history lesson, why National Donut Day? Apparently, it was created by The Salvation Army to honor the women who served donuts to the soldiers in World War I. That was in 1938! It was started as a fundraiser for the Chicago Salvation Army. Anyway, the history goes on from there and you are welcome to google it for more information! Needless to say, the first Friday of June, every year is National Donut Day!

My little group chose Dunford Bakey in West Jordan and even though they didn't have all our favorites out, we got a variety instead of our usual...most everyone I know loves their chocolate chocolate donuts! YUM!

What did you do to celebrate? What is your favorite donut?

Arby's: New KING'S HAWAIIAN Roast Beef Sandwiches

I love King's Hawaiian rolls! They are very delicious!

I am also a fan of Arby's roast beef sandwiches!

Several months ago I noticed in a local grocery store that King's Hawaiian started selling buns for hot dogs and hamburgers and other items, check out the products section of their website.

Then a few weeks ago, I saw the above tv commercial for the new King's Hawaiian Roast Beef sandwich, where the guy claims it is "ono" and I instantly wanted to try this sandwich!

Recently, I finally got the chance and I gotta say, I LOVE IT! The bread and roast beef combine for the most wonderful flavor! This will definitely be my go to sandwich upon every Arby's visit from now on...for as long as it is on the menu! (Disclaimer: I paid for my own sandwich and was not compensated or paid in any way for this post, the opinions are all my own!)

I fully believe it should be made part of the regular menu and not just a limited time item! So, go...try it...NOW, GO! Then, come back and let me know what YOU think!
