Food Review – Schmidt’s Pastry Cottage

Published March 31, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

This place had a fun look on the outside and screamed to me “come in”, so in we went.

We give this Restaurant 3 Pink Pig Snouts

Located at: 1133 West South Jordan Parkway
South Jordan, Utah  84095

(there is also one in taylorsville and salt lake city)

Website: http://www.schmidtspastry.net

Type of Food: hot & cold sandwiches, soups and of course pastries

Prices – $7.00 – $10.00 (our lunches were $6.99-$7.99 each)

Decor & Atmosphere:  The decor and atmosphere were horrid.  From outside you would expect to enter a cute and cozy cottage styled atmosphere.  Instead we were assaulted with a confused cacophony of marble walls, industrial vent tubes and bland neutral colors.

Service:  Fast, friendly and drink refills were available.

Meal 1:  Philly Cheese steak on focaccia bread.  Included Lays chips and your choice of brownie, mint brownie or eclair $6.99 drink: sprite $1.99 for large with refills

Review:  Bread was moist and flavorful, meat and cheese a bit skimpy.  Mediocre sums it up.  The best part of the plate was the brownie, which was rich and tasty.

Meal 2:  Turkey bacon tomato sandwich on sourdough bread.  Included Lays potato chips and choice of brownie, mint brownie or eclair.  Avocado was $1.00 extra for a total of $7.99.  Drink: coke $1.99 large with refills

Review:  Sandwich was very good and flavorful.  Two complaints:  a) The crust of the bread was very hard and b) even though i paid $1.00 extra for avocado, the portion was a very small slice >^(  I chose the mint brownie for my desert and, like the plain brownie, was rich and tasty.

Since the pastries were the true highlight of the meal, here are some selections from their menu that might be worth a go:

Mint Cookie

Orange Butterflakes

Eclair

Building a Lego City

Published March 26, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

Ever since me and my hubby have been married we take a trip around our anniversary date and always buy the newest lego building. so now that we are in a place that we can build it a proper home. (inside my office’s walk in closet that is.) So we have been using date nights to be together and build. I will share pictures through out the process until our city is finished. Here are some pictures from our 1st night building our pet shop.

The first couple of shots are just of the pictures on the outside of the box.


then we got a little crazy and dumped them all out.





This building set was awesome, it had lots of animals and fun designs on how they built furniture and such. they even have a toilet on one of the floors.

We were both in Lego heaven. Stay tuned for a photo of the completed building and more shots of the next building .. which is the emporium.
