Tweeting in Twitterland and Urban spooning

Local Chow is now on Twitter. I am a little new at linking all of this stuff so bear with me! It is a HUGE social media world out there! So many great links to cool things and cool people it throws my O.C.D and A.D.D into overdrive at warp speed! I also am starting to write some reviews on Urbanspoon so check that out as well! It is all under Local Chow.  Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day! We are in SLC Utah and it has been cold and rainy for 2 days.  I have secretly been enjoying it after months of sunshine and 80 degree weather. I am still an Oregonian and I and just not used to all of that sunshine! So we stayed in and I made a root vegetable beef stew with Guinness beer and watched movies it was perfect and delish!

Zion and ostrich eggs

We are right at the base of the Zion National Park in Virgin Utah. It is a breathtaking place. We are headed to the park today for some hiking and sightseeing. I am looking forward to sharing some pictures of our trip on FB.  Its funny that I have no cell service but there is what appears to be an organic grocery store up the road a just few miles. I was on a bike ride the other day and drove by an ostrich farm where you could buy fresh ostrich eggs.  I have never had an Ostrich egg and quite frankly I have a little weirdness about eggs in general. They have always kind of given me the creeps. So, I cant imagine eating one the size of a cantaloupe. Anyway, I will post more on this later. Happy Memorial Day!
