How to spend 90 minutes in St. George, Utah

Conoco station 


The cashier showed me how to crack the swarthy little nuts in my teeth. 
If you've never eaten pine nuts straight from the shell, they're softer and fleshier than what you buy pesto-ready from the supermarket, and have a tiny green sprout in the middle. There's a resinous flavor on the shell that I didn't absolutely love.
There was nothing about Nielsen's frozen custard that I didn't absolutely love.

Brother Brigham's stove

I also toured Brigham Young's summer home, which I highly recommend if you're ever in St. George. 


Now, with great joy, I am going home.

  1. I hope you don't get pine mouth!! Did you know that was even a thing you could get? My husband got it the week of Thanksgiving - we had swiss chard sauteed with pine nuts and garlic Sunday night, and then for about a week after everything he ate tasted bitter! It wasn't until he googled "bitter taste in mouth" that we learned of the existence of pine mouth. People tend to blame Chinese pine nuts, but I think they are also generally xenophobes.

  2. Bless you for your shout-out to Nielsen's. There's nothing quite like it.

  3. A wealth of technical savvy to a fashion replica watches sale that otherwise would have much of a chance of bringing these horological halo projects to life. Though why anyone would need this swiss replica watches to run uninterrupted for that length of time shall remain a mystery as opaque as rolex replica watches. Watches store was once again mentioned as the most valuable fake rolex sale in the world. This no doubt has earned them the attention of many sponsors and partners, including their fair share of watch brands. It was argued that the average price point of watches store was too high for a large percentage of rolex replica uk store fans. From there, the watchmaker role went to Bulova for a brief period of time. Special edition can be seen as the epitome of the types of rolex replica sale he liked to release. The movement operates at two days of power reserve. For more information on the watches store movement, please do reference the link to the review on the replica watches store above.
