I just took a vacation and was lucky enough to go to Chicago. What a beautiful city. I only had two days there, but they were well spent. First we hit the Taste of Chicago. Really tasty food vendors set up in Grant Park. We tried Bacon Mac n Cheese, Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches, Rattlesnake Sausage, and the best Funnel Cake ever.
After that feast, we went to dinner at Pizza Rustica close to Wrigley Field. After dinner, we walked down to the field and got to see a great game – Cubs v. Cardinals. The game was a nail biter and the Cubs lost at the end of the 9th inning. What a game.
We spent a whole day at the Art Institute. What a way to get inspired. Unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of talent. We had to have pierogi while we were in Chicago, so we went to Pierogi Heaven and we tried 6 different kinds of pierogis – meat, spinach, mushroom, mushroom and kraut, potato and cheese and potato and cheddar. Totally yummy (and boy was my Polish husband jealous).
Now that I am back, I had to do something crafty. We have new neighbors, so i got a bunch of goodies at Trader Joe’s and made up a few change of address cards. I used a retired stamp from Stampin’ Up! Very cute!
