I have a couple more restaurant week meals to share. Those will be coming soon. In the meantime, I'll share about my visit to Chicago. I left Sin City for the Windy City on Saturday. I stayed at my sister's house and got lots of time with her and Nicky. Visited my dad, inlaws and a few friends too. Nicky is in school now so we did our best to keep routine. It was wild to help him with his homework. It seems like yesterday he was still in Amy's belly and we were curious what he'd look like. Now, he's writing the letter S. How time flies!
I ate my favorites like Giordanos pizza, chinese and gyros. Even satisfied a craving for cream of chicken soup. I still love Greek restaurants. They have tasty home cooked food, a huge variety and cheap prices.
We took Nicky to his first home game, he's now a White Sox fan. He was loyal to the Angels. Our mistake for taking him to Angel Stadium first. The White Sox played the Twins and we won. It was a great game.
We rented a boat at the Monee Reservoir and fished. We didn't catch anything and it was mighty sweaty from the heat and humidity, but we enjoyed it. It's quite peaceful.
Amy's roommate has two cats and one recently had a litter of kittens. They are handfuls of utter cuteness.
Our last stop before they dropped me off at the airport was the Plush Horse, an old fashioned ice cream parlor with a huge selection of homemade ice cream. M'mmm strawberry cheesecake ice cream!
