es, I’m a nerd! Not blessed with an athletic body, I found my niche in the high school chemistry lab. Last week, I filled a glass with crushed ice, and added enough water and salt to observe changes in light patterns cast by the glass as the ice melted. Thrilling? Yes, I know, this is a little like watching sliced apples turn brown! But, have you considered what would happen if ice formed in less space than that which contained it as the liquid? We all know water expands as it freezes; we’re lucky it does. Otherwise, ice would sink after forming on the surface of lakes and oceans and settle to the bottom, away from the warmth of the sun. It’s life’s biological solvent. Irrigation water from the Weber River first came to Syracuse with the Hooper Canal, finishing at 4000 W. Antelope Dr. in 1884. This water allowed the farmland below the Bluff to be cultivatable for cash crops and orchards. Today, additional water companies supply secondary water. For first settlers, the only source of fresh water was a single spring: Stoddard’s Spring. Immediately pioneers dug wells. If one examines maps available at the Division of Water Rights, our past as a well-digging community is evident. A review of our history shows that families relied on private and some on shared wells until Syracuse was incorporated. My father, a child of the Great Depression, recounted stories of a well shared by his father and uncle located at 900 S. along 2000 West and its role in two families’ lives. Syracuse was incorporated in 1935. Earlier in 1934, we began what would be our culinary water system. It was fed by one well located at the cemetery. [Did you know that 1000 West was called Cemetery Street at that time?] Two additional wells were comissioned in 1951 and 1964. Culinary waterlines were galvanized, 2” pipes in some locations! Over time, our water supply was supplemented by the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District beginning with a line from 300 North to the cemetery. Those original wells at the cemetery are retired. Water is currently drawn from a fourth well on the east side of the city near 500 W. Antelope Dr. A second Weber Basin line joins our service at this location, today. In the early 60’s, the need for more storage was recognized and the current onemillion-gallon tank was constructed. By statute, the city must maintain a certain storage capacity to meet certification requirements. The tank has served the community well, but like a tweener’s shoes, it no longer fits. Don’t fret over its demise! It will serve our secondary system, improving water pressures there! The nerd in me spent a few minutes the other day looking at changing patterns from melting ice. Our 2014 Water Master Plan based on ever-changing growth patterns has determined we will have sufficient culinary water through 2041, but there is a need for an additional 3 million gallons of storage by 2024; an additional 3 million gallons of storage within 4 years of that date, and then an additional 1 million before buildout; thus 3+3+1 = 7 million! Generations that follow will be grateful we made the start today! Michael Gailey, Mayor

Community Question Corner BY PAUL ROBERTS, CITY ATTORNEY
Question: Does Syracuse City have a mobile App for my phone? Answer: Yes, the City has developed mobile applications for both Apple and Android devices. Want to report a pothole while it’s on your mind? Or look up information about a city event while on the go? Use the City’s mobile app. As part of our recent webpage redesign, the developer generated a mobile application that can be downloaded onto your phone. The app includes links to website information and features, such as calendars, notifications, construction updates, job listings, official social media accounts, and records of public meetings. The app streamlines finding specific information by using categories to help you navigate. It needs an active data/ internet connection to be useful. Downloading the app for Android is simple. The app is called Syracuse Mobile UT and can be downloaded from the Google Play store. Downloading the app for Apple devices takes a few more steps. The app is called CivicMobile, and you must then select “Syracuse, UT” from the list of available cities. If you need help finding or using it, there are instructions online at: https://www.syracuseut.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=18. Do you have a community question? Submit your question to email@example.com.

Public Works Update Keeping Water Ways Clean As debris, grime and dirt get onto our parking lots and driveways, it’s a good idea to clean up pollutants before they get into the storm drain system. One good way to prevent this from happening is to sweep it up and discard it into the garbage can. If we each do our part, we will help prevent pollutants from clogging up our storm drain pipes. It will also keep our waterways cleaner and our parking lots and driveways looking more appealing.

SYRACUSE ISLAND WATER FEATURE NOW OPEN! Syracuse City is proud to announce the new interactive water feature Syracuse Island that opened June 22nd. Syracuse City is known for being “The Gateway to Antelope Island” and the new facility reflects it in its design from the beautiful pavilions to the shade structures with bird images cut out of the canopy so the sun projects images of birds onto the ground. Eleven life size bison made of weathered looking steel, real stone boulders, a splash river, and series of fountains brings the project together to reflect what you might find on Antelope Island. Mayor Gailey wrote, “I returned to the Island water feature on Tuesday of Heritage Days a little shocked to see the number of children enjoying a hot summer day. The water park was covered like fly-paper with wall-to-wall kids, and guardians watching over their antics. As a kid I don’t ever remember being bored; in trouble a lot, but never bored. Our splash pad was the supply ditch that provided irrigation along 2000 West. One hot afternoon my brother chased me around that ditch and knowing I was going to get thrown in, I dived head-first into the filthy water. I came up with a gash in my left flank that disemboweled me, required 157 stitches and a course of heavy antibiotics. I’ll never forget the look of horror on my mother’s face when she spotted me. We’ve come a long way since the mid-50’s. Kids still love water; but parents won’t have to witness what my poor mother endured, as I stood bleeding on her newly-waxed, kitchen floor.” The brand new “Island” is a $1.6 million project that is open to the public for free. This is the final phase to the popular Chloe’s Playground as a crowning improvement to Centennial Park. There are currently two pavilions with picnic tables that are open to the public; however the large pavilion can be reserved for a fee. The City hopes this new feature will bring families and residents together to continue to build a better Syracuse. The project was funded through a combination of impact fees that was received from the new growth in the City. Syracuse city has worked hard with the residents, community, and businesses such as the Syracuse Lions Club to help fund and bring this project to life. The Syracuse Island provides something for the whole family and it was built to keep the community together. So many people worked hard on the project and did it for the benefit of the residents. Syracuse City is known for its dedication to its people and being the best they can be and this project really shows this. We hope that families and friends can become the community Syracuse dreams it to be.

In Recognition of Ralph Vaughan BY CORINNE BOLDUC
The City of Syracuse would like to recognize Ralph Vaughan, who passed away on July 1st. Ralph was a sitting member of the Planning Commission when he passed; he has been a member of the Commission since July 2013. His work and dedication to the City of Syracuse is recognized by many. He is known for his kind greetings, fun ties, and willingness to serve his community positively. Ralph also participated in many blood drives and was recognized by Fresenius Kabi, and inducted into the National Donation Hall of Fame for his contributions; Ralph donated over 144 gallons of blood to help others. Councilmember Corinne Bolduc writes: Syracuse City mourns the passing of Mr. Ralph Vaughan. Mr. Vaughan had an amazing history of civic service, including his employment as an undercover police officer, Supervising Deputy Sheriff IV for San Diego County and instructor at Palomar College, and in community service ranging from San Diego jail chaplain, Blood Bank Board, Crime Prevention Commission, and Planning Commission. He was currently a member of the Syracuse Planning Commission (PC) and served with diligence, going above and beyond to research the topics on the agenda for each meeting. He was also a consistent attendee to Council Meetings and ran for Council in 2017, best remembered for his ‘Honk and Wave’ under a large umbrella on Antelope Drive. Mr. Vaughan was also an advocate for Americans with Disabilities and made sure that was part of his platform when he ran for office. He wanted everyone to have the same chances for service and access that we all enjoy. When we were first introduced, I told him that my grandfather’s name was Ralph. We had an instant connection. And as I write in my iPad, and type the name Ralph, “Vaughan” automatically appears in the suggested words above my keypad. He always reminded me that his parents “paid to have an extra vowel in their name,” so that I would remember to get the “additional A” in Vaughan. Because I am the PC liaison, I had the pleasure to talk with him before almost every meeting. Ralph would always greet me with a handshake, a slight smile and a twinkle in his eye. He told me on several occasions, “I believe in you.” What a blessing he was! Mr. Vaughan was known for being a blood donor, and at last that I knew, he had donated over 144
gallons of blood, and was the current Utah record holder. I can only imagine how many lives he helped save by donating over and over again for years, and years, doing what most cannot tolerate but one or two times and never return again. He blessed so many anonymously in their greatest hour of need. Mr. Vaughan was always well dressed and had a large collection of ties; one tie (or many) for every holiday of the year. Ties that lit up, ties that played music, and ties that were just funny. He loved to show them to people. When he learned that one of my sons had just received a mission call, he offered to give us several of his ties. I declined, saying that my son had plenty, but it would be a treasure to have one of those ties now. If I see a novelty tie, I will remember Ralph and the joy he gave with something so simple. At the last several Planning Commission Meetings, Mr. Vaughan was in terrible pain. Having spasms in his leg, he ended up using a walker in case one hit. As he said, “it We express our sincere could take him to the ground.” I was impressed at his diligent gratitude to Ralph and attendance to PC meetings his years of service where he had to stand and to our City. His kind walk about frequently to greetings, fun ties, and alleviate the pain. It is a tender memory of mine to have willingness to help will walked slowly with him into be greatly missed. the building, not knowing that it would be his last meeting. When he asked for a leave of absence for a short while to get better, we all could understand why, but none of us expected this. The City mourns with his wife, Gaea, and their five daughters. We express our sincere gratitude to them for allowing their husband and father to bless people wherever he went, and for his service to the City of Syracuse. Sincerely, Corinne Bolduc, Council Member, Planning Commission Liaison

Increases in Utility Fees Scheduled to Begin in August Part of the City’s mission is “To provide quality, affordable services for its citizens…” In fulfilling this mission, the City Council and staff Syracuse City Water Department work diligently to strike that balance between ‘quality’ and ‘affordability’. Tremendous resources are required to not only provide these services to you, but also to ensure they are reliable and of good quality. From time to time, additional resources are needed. Without these resources, quality is likely to suffer, thereby providing you a subpar service. We don’t want that, and we understand that you don’t want that. Therefore, you can expect to see a few changes in your monthly utility bill starting in August. Below is an explanation of these changes: Culinary Water: an increase of $0.35 will pay for increased water rates charged by Weber Basin Water District. Another $0.70 will go to hire a new full-time water maintenance worker. Secondary Water: an increase of $0.20 will go towards rate increases from water irrigation companies that supply the City. Another $0.70 will go to hire a new full-time water maintenance worker. Park Maintenance: an increase of $0.50 will go towards increase in costs to maintain our parks and replace old park amenities. Garbage Fund: an increase of $2.00 per black can for construction of new garbage facility for Wasatch Integrated Waste Management District. Total Increase: $4.45 per user per month
Tour of Utah is scheduled to go through Syracuse again this year on August 15th, 2019. Syracuse Police Department asks for your patience and cooperation during this race for traffic control and the safety of the riders. Please see the website for further details regarding the Tour of Utah. www.tourofutah.com.

Yes, a family deeply rooted in chicken business experience has come to Syracuse and customers are thrilled with what they have to offer at THE BIRD. After bouncing off ideas for fast, focused and family oriented food, Tyler, Clint and McKell chose Syracuse for their restaurant, THE BIRD. The menu is simple. They specialize in tenders and sides.

DAVIS COUNTY FAIR
The Davis County Fair is a
Family Affair The Hansen family has worked, volunteered, and submitted entries to the fair over the past 20 years.
By Hailey Minton
ave Hansen is one of the Legacy Events Center employees who regularly involves his family in helping at the Davis County Fair. Dave and his wife, Marla, have lived in Syracuse for most of their children’s lives and it seems the Fair has always been a part of it. Before the fair begins, their two youngest children, Amber and Annie help paint, sort ribbons, and take in entries in the living arts category of the fair. “My kids have been indispensable.” He explained that not many children get to see their parents at work and he thinks that is very beneficial to his kids. “I also think it’s been a great blessing for them to get to interact with good people that we work with who have been kind to them.” Their youngest daughter, Annie, made it to 10 years old this year, a much anticipated year that qualifies her to volunteer in the Bunny Barn. She has seen her older sister, Amber, volunteer and she already knows she needs to “make sure people are being gentle with the bunnies and the bunnies are being nice to the people.” Marla said Amber and Annie have been looking forward to volunteering at the fair since the beginning of summer. Two years ago, Amber was volunteering in the Bunny Barn for about 10 hours a day. “I really wanted a bunny,” she said. “I was close with one of the bunny barn workers so I asked her if she had any for sale without my dad really knowing.” Since the worker knew and trusted her, she gave her a baby bunny, Rex, who the worker had been raising from her home.

The Hansen family: Amber, Annie, Sydney, Marla, Sam & Dave. The Davis County Fair is a family tradition for them and throughout the years have entered volunteered and entered several animals and projects for judging.
The Hansen’s two older children have moved on to other endeavors. Sam, who is 18, is selling solar in Hawaii and Sydney, who is 20, is serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Calgary, Canada. Marla said it’s been neat seeing their two youngest girls experience the same things their two older ones did when they were younger: Kettle corn, the rodeo, volunteering, and concerts.
“He was so little when we first got him.” They had to bring two of his siblings home with them because he was too little to be alone. They named him Charlie and he has grown up to be, as Dave describes him, “A cute, big, fat, mellow rabbit.” They enter him into the fair to be the rabbit that everyone gets to pet, so if you want to pet Charlie, look for Amber and Annie in the Bunny Barn this year.
“From the time I started here, Sydney was just a year old,” said Dave. “We really tried to gear the fair towards kids’ activities and kids entertainment because that brings the whole family in.” Their daughter, Amber, really enjoys photography and enters some of her images into the fair each year. “It’s been a really fun hobby for her and she’s getting to where she does really well,” said Dave. Amber explained she started teaching herself how to take photos on her iPhone but now she shoots on a

Canon. “When we go on vacation I just like taking pictures of everything.” If you want to see more of her work, you can find her on Instagram at @amberslifephotos. Dave explained there are two main categories people can submit entries into the fair: livestock which includes the animals, and living arts which encompasses quite a bit, including canning, crocheting, and even Lego sculptures which was Sam’s first entry in the fair. Dave is looking forward to the 2019 events at the Davis County Fair. “I’m surprised by how much interest there has been about the hot air balloon glow.” Hot air balloons will fill up at dusk but won’t take off. When they hit that flame burner that inflates the balloon, the whole balloon will light up. “The colors in the fabric of the balloon are really intensified when this happens especially against the dark sky.” To accompany that, Polynesian dancers will be dancing and it’s right by the stage where there’s always some sort of performance happening. The event is free with admission on Thursday Aug. 15. He also said he is expecting the GENTRI concert on Wednesday night to be a highlight. This gentlemen’s trio use their polished voices to create music that has a pleasantly flowing quality that any age can enjoy. Marla said they attended the BYU Vocal Point and Madilyn Paige concert last year and now Amber and Annie are fans of Madilyn Page. Annie said a highlight for her is seeing the horses at the rodeos. Dave said the Rodeo on Friday and Saturday night usually sell out but he is guessing people can still get good seats if they get their tickets early in August. They have also brought back the DockDogs diving competition that was really popular years ago. Dogs dive off a portable dock and compete to be the highest jumping, farthest leaping, or fastest retrieving. The event was at the fair two years in a row and the second year it got so big that people were spilling out into the rest of the fair trying to watch. Dave said it got bigger than the fair could handle, but they have since made changes to the layout and programing to make it all fit. “People go crazy about it. It gives people a chance to watch the dogs run down the ramp and jump as far as they can and some of those dogs get amazing distance. Every night it’s fun. Every time they perform there’s something fun to watch.”
Right: Daughter Amber Hansen enjoys photography and has entered several of her photos.
Most of the volunteers for the Davis County Fair come from the general public. “Usually, someone knows someone who is willing to help, but we are open to volunteers!” said Dave.
Do you want to volunteer? If you call their office (801)451-4080, they can help you find the right place to volunteer based off your skills and interests. “If you are a crafty person, maybe you could be a judge, or help take the entries in.” There are opportunities to be door watchers at concerts, and help take care of the animals by cleaning up their living areas. 18 syracuseconnection.com | August 2019

The new cannery was completed in 1935 and driven by a steam engine. It processed lots of tomatoes, peas and apricots.
During World War II, the factory could not keep up with the demand. During the 1960’s farm acreage, peas and tomatoes diminished in Syracuse. Local factories were closed, some never reopened. The Barnes-Kaysville cannery was no exception. After waiting several years, the factory structure was sold to G.H. Dredge Company as a warehouse for storage. Part of the land was also sold to C.H. Dredge for a trucking firm. Utah Onion bought the segment of C.H. Dredge Company in 1977 with Jerry Hartley as President, Dick Hirabayashi as Vice President and Brent Bodily as Secretary. They had approximately 25 growers with 5 to 20 acres in Davis/Weber and Box Elder counties with packing sheds in Syracuse and Corinne.
The Kaysville Canning Company
In 2005 Brad Dahl, Shawn Hartley, and Trent Hartley bought the company. In 2017, a new modern facility was built and changed the name to Onions 52. Approximately 100 people are employed during the busy season and handle one million bags of onions each year.

ire had destroyed the Kaysville Cannery in September of 1923 at a loss of nearly $150,000. Most of the records were saved, but the tomato season finished by sending wagon loads to the other cannery in Kaysville. The following spring a new factory was built where the old one had burned down. This time it was made of brick and was much larger. John A. Barnes and Barnes Company became the new owners.

Ole Sessions, a son of Esther Sessions, was hired and in 1924 was the overseer of the Barnes Estate and manager of operations at the new factory. Mr. Sessions held this position for 35 years until the factory shut down, but he continued to look after the Barnes’ interest.

The new factory was completed and began operation in September 1935. Machinery was driven by a steam engine. There were two boilers heated by coal. The factory had three wells supplying water for the steam boilers and cooking. They were located at the back where a cement holding pond was also located. During the Tomato Campaign, over 150 people worked in the factory, most of them were women who peeled the tomatoes. The factory provided many with employment when times were bad during the depression years. For several years, peas, apricots and other produce were processed in the Syracuse factory. 20 syracuseconnection.com | August 2019

Charlie's Service Center BY JEREMY POORTE
Reliable, honest service since 1985.
inding an automotive repair shop that you can trust and rely upon, year after year, is not always easy. Let me tell you about one that is trustworthy, reliable and easy to find. Charlie’s Service Center began in 1985 at its current location on 1901 N. Main Street in Sunset. When I was a high school student, my car began to overheat one evening while driving on I-15, just south of Roy. I lived in Ogden and was expected in Salt Lake City for work as a wedding photographer. I could see Charlie’s from the interstate and took the next exit and pulled in. I knew nothing about the place. From the outside, it looked like any other 2-bay shop and gas station from the 1950’s or 60’s. Except cleaner, neater and tidier than older service stations were 25 years ago. A tired and weary looking Charlie DuBose was locking the front door as I pulled in. I could feel my stomach drop as stepped out of my car, asking him, “Oh, no. Are you closed?!” Charlie nodded yes but then proceeded towards my car anyway. “Why don’t you open ‘er up?” He ducked his head underneath the enormous hood of my 1972 Oldsmobile and I joined his side, anxious about having maybe as little as $10 on me and making it to work on time. I thought I’d lost a radiator hose or water pump. “Ah,
it’s just a belt. No big deal.” Without saying another word, Charlie opened his shop back up, grabbed a new belt and a socket wrench and took care of me. I think if I’d pulled into just about any other shop that evening, I would’ve received a “we’re closed”, a shrug, followed by a “there’s a payphone out back if you need a ride home.” Instead, I found Charlie and I made it to work on time…and I made sure that he received a dozen donuts the next day. It was that level of service that helped Charlie DuBose build a business and clientele, first within the neighborhood and shortly thereafter, all throughout Davis & Weber Counties. Charlie’s has been known for honest and reliable work, since day one. That reputation allowed the business to grow and grow... ultimately growing out of its humble beginnings. In 2004, Charlie’s expanded into a new 6-bay building that they currently operate out of today. They provide exceptional service on cars, trucks and RVs. Charlie’s Service Center is accredited through the BBB with A+ rating, as well as a Napa Auto Care Center. Most of all, they have a trust and an unwavering loyalty within
their customer base and within the communities that they serve. Like so many others, I was greatly saddened to learn of Charlie’s passing 9 years ago. However, I knew at that time that his son, Justin, and daughter-in-law, Amanda, would carry both the business and Charlie’s legacy forward and indeed they have done so, very well. When you enter their business, you’re quickly welcomed and treated with respect, value and sincerity. Their people make the difference, just as much as their quality and reputation. Inside their customer waiting area is not the typical experience. It’s bright, clean and comfortable, with an attentive customer service staff and easy view of the work bays and the work being done to your vehicle by their ASE Certified Technicians. As it was in the late 80’s when I first came to know Charlie’s Service Center… it is still one of the most reputable automotive repair shops around, today. They will take care of you, your car, truck or RV…better than the rest.
Their honest and reliable reputation allowed the business to grow and grow...ultimately growing out of its humble beginnings. In 2004, Charlie's expanded into a new 6-bay building that they currently operate out of today.

Do you have Earthquake Coverage? By Roger Grow
IS YOUR HOME COVERED IF THERE IS DAMAGE BY AN EARTHQUAKE? Unless you have a specific endorsement or an earthquake policy the answer is NO! I am often asked if I have EARTHQUAKE coverage on my home and even on my business and the answer is YES. If you have any equity in your home, it could be gone in even a small earthquake. For as little as $150 a year we can cover the structure itself. It is a little more if you would like the insurance to cover your personal property, loss of use and other coverages. Here are some actual examples of homes that we have written earthquake policies for that include the dwelling, personal property, loss of use, other structures and building ordinance.
Home valued at $236,000 in Clinton, coverage costs $305 per year
Home valued at $235,000 in Layton coverage costs $269 per year
Home valued at $228,000 in Layton cost $288 per year
Home valued at $199,500 in Farmington costs $238 per year
One of the biggest concerns in coverage you would have in the case of earthquake damage is loss of use. Where will you live if your home is unsuitable? Our earthquake policies have coverage for this possibility. The insurance will pay for a residence for you during the repair of your home. The great thing is, it doesn't matter who your regular homeowners or business policy is insured with, we can help you with earthquake insurance as a stand alone earthquake policy with either a 5% deductible that has a Masonry (Brick) exclusion or a 10% deductible without the exclusion. We can insure both the actual home itself and your personal property or just the home itself.
The rates are far less than most people assume and it is great coverage to have, especially when you consider that scientists have estimated that we will likely face a 7.0 magnitude earthquake in our lifetimes. The damage of a quake that size would be catastrophic. Even a smaller quake could cause major repairs and damage to your property, which can easily be insured with one our policies. There are some underwriting requirements to review so contact us to see what best fits your needs.

S’mores Funnel Cakes
Apple Butter & Cheddar Dogs
BY SHAUNA HAVEY
BY SHAUNA HAVEY
This whimsical recipe gives you two of summer’s most loved desserts in one delicious, gooey bite. In just minutes, and with a few simple ingredients, you’ll be indulging in a sweet nostalgic treat that’ll have you feeling like a kid again.
Keep summer sizzling with this creative twist on a hot dog the whole family will flip for. Grilled jumbo chicken dogs are piled high with caramelized apple butter onions, fresh crispy green apple slices, and melted white cheddar. It’s all nestled into a warm, buttery poppy seed bun and finished with a sprinkle of parsley.
Makes 8 funnel cakes Ingredients: For the funnel cakes: 2 c. canola oil for frying 2 c. flour 1/2 Tbsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 c. brown sugar 1 large egg 1 c. plus 2 Tablespoons whole milk 1 tsp vanilla Toppings: 1/4 c. powdered sugar 1 c. chocolate chips 1 1/2 c. mini marshmallows 1 1/2 c. Golden Grahams Cereal 1 12 ounce jar hot fudge topping, warmed Place oil into a cast iron skillet and heat to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar. Whisk to combine. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla and stir until the batter is well combined. Pour batter into a gallon sized zip top bag and snip a 1/2 inch hole into the corner of the bag. When oil is hot, pipe the batter directly into the oil in swirls, making a four inch circle. You can make a couple at a time. Cook funnel cakes for about 1 1/2 minutes or until they start to turn golden around the edges. Use tongs to flip over and cook another minute until the entire cake is golden and batter is cooked through. Place cakes on paper towels to drain, then dust with powdered sugar. Top cakes with the chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, cereal, and a drizzle of hot fudge before serving. Funnel cakes are best served warm, but can also be served at room temperature...just like donuts!

Heat grill or grill pan to medium high heat and grill the hot dogs until heated through and plump. While the hot dogs cook, slice apples and place into a bowl.

Sprinkle half the cheese over buns. Set sheet pan with the cheese covered buns onto the grill and close the lid (or place under broiler in oven on low). When buns are toasted and the cheese is melted, place the hot dogs onto the buns. Place a few apples slices down one side of the hot dogs. Top the dogs with the apple butter onions and remaining cheese. Again, place dogs under the closed grill lid or under the oven broiler until the cheese is melted.
Everyone will appreciate the Sprinkle with parsley and extra effort on these dogs! serve.

Casa de Nena

BY RYAN SPELTS
Each of the 31 states in Mexico has a unique style and flavor. They might have the same dish but it can taste completely different based on the spices and mode of preparation. When Denny and his
mother-in-law decided they wanted to open a restaurant, they chose to base it on the flavors and recipes of Guadalajara and Nayarit. When Denny first went to a family gathering with his wife’s family, he tasted a fried shrimp taco made by his mother-in-law. He ate 16 tacos that day and knew right then and there that he had found the flavor that he wanted as the basis of his restaurant. Casa de Nena is named after his mother-in-law, Maria Elena Or “Nena” for short. Desiring to keep the menu simple, fresh and delicious, Casa de Nena focuses on shrimp and birria (shredded beef) Mexican dishes. They also have weekly specials and new flavors that are introduced each week for limited times. The food is cooked fresh and prepared fresh at the restaurant off Pennsylvania Avenue in Ogden. I have always loved shrimp since I was a young man. My parents would let me pick where I want to go to dinner for my birthday and I usually picked sizzler for their all you can eat shrimp. I didn’t realize that there is so many more delicious ways to prepare shrimp then just deep-fried. I got to experience some new ways to enjoy shrimp visiting Casa de Nena. The first wave was in a dish called ceviche, which is a cold dish. My favorite was what they called the Cosido con 30 syracuseconnection.com | August 2019
Limon, which is raw shrimp mixed with avocado, onion and cucumber. It is cured and marinated in lime juice and it’s delicious. Another popular version of this is combined with onion, tomato, cucumber, lime, salt and tomato juice topped with avocado. Both are served with a tostada and they’re both very delicious. By far my favorite flavor was the shrimp empanada. This delicious shrimp turnover was full of FAVORITE The shrimp wonderful empanada was full of flavor. flavor and juiciness. It’s one of those flavors that I call a comeback flavor. Most restaurants serve delicious food and you can find something on the menu that you like. A few restaurants have a flavor that stays with you and rattles around in the back of your head. I hear a little voice that says, “you should go have that again.” That flavor at Casa de Nena was the shrimp empanadas. The birria, carne asada, and weekly special of chicken were all very good, but the shrimp empanadas are still bouncing around in my head. They also do some fun additional things like make Agua Fresca each week. These drinks are made from water and fresh produce. They offer flavors like cucumber water, watermelon water, and strawberry water, as well as the traditional flavor of

Horchata. They add a delightful taste to fresh cold water and they’re a wonderful addition to the dish, adding just the right amount of sweetness without having to drink pop. We also tried the fried tacos, quesadillas, and several other dishes. All were delicious; all had unique flavors and tasted very fresh. Melissa and I were also inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit by which this restaurant came about. Denny had an idea, found a location, built traffic through word-of-mouth and is now beginning to advertise as the word is getting out about their delicious food and unique flavors. Denny and his wife took the brave step of quitting their full-time jobs to work the restaurant fulltime. Denny’s mother-in-law still works her full-time job, comes in very early to cook, and then also after work to keep food fresh and her recipes perfected. Denny’s mom also helps make many of the desserts. To top off our delicious meal we had a fresh cheesecake with a scoop of ice cream and Mexican caramel drizzle over the top. It was delicioso.
