Even Stevens Sandwich Shop, St George, Utah

Even Stevens Sandwiches
471 St. George Blvd.
St. George, Utah


This is me, on my birthday eating a great sandwich

'tis the season of giving...

I drove passed Even Stevens on St. George Blvd at lunch time, the parking lot was packed. I am so grateful that we live in a community where people love to eat & help each other.

This is the sandwich shop with a mission. Eat to Give!

For every sandwich you buy, they will donate one sandwich (a voucher of sorts) to one of the three shelters and food bank in St. George. 

Is that awesome or what?

I love it.

Not only that, but I have been privileged to try one of their very tasty sandwiches. It was a Pot Roast Dip. It was actually turkey and it had this sweet pepper jelly on it. The bread was nice and toasty but not like a dry toast, it was definitely fried and it came with au jus and a pickle spear. It was delicious!

I am eager to try out more of their selections. Really good food - with a cause! I love it. Love it. LOVE!

When I did my visiting teaching this month, I didn't come prepared with a spiritual thought, just a review... this restaurant - go there. it's that good. And you get to help someone in need. It's a win-win.

Why not check out their menu here. I was just reading over their about section. Gosh, they started in Salt Lake only last year and within 6 months gave out 30,000 sandwiches. 

It warms my heart! People are good. They want to help. I am pretty eager to try out all the different restaurants in town, because, you know, having lived outside the country for 10+ years, all the food is new to me.... but now that this joint opened up, I think, should I go to that other place, when I could go here and help someone in need. You know... it's a tough choice now.

Here are some food photos from their website to get your mouth watering:

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals, Hurricane, Utah

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals
692 N 150 W
Hurricane, Utah
435-680-2858
By appointment only.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit with Dena Humphries of Hurricane. She runs Suzy's Closet. It's a non profit Dress Rental in Hurricane. The goal of this non-profit is to provide modest affordable dresses for young women. But, anyone can "rent" a dress - you don't have to be young.

Dena said she had someone going to a Marine ball in Southern California that was older that was borrowing a dress.

The cost to rent dresses is $35 per dress. This covers the cost of dry cleaning therefore, Dena doesn't make anything extra, hence non-profit.

Dena runs this business out of her house, namely out of her living and family rooms.

Why doesn't she call it Dena's Closet? She said because she thought it didn't sound good. She chose the name Suzy because it was cute and similar to her middle name Sue.

How did she get into the business or charity rather?

She got into it becaus…
