Wednesday again! This week it actually means 2 things.
One: I fly back to new york in less than 48 hours! After spending so much time at home, I’m actually kind of in denial that I’m actually going back. But I absolutely cannot wait!
It’s time for the most delicious link party on the interwebs – all thanks to the lovely (genius) Jenn. Seriously, I’m not sure why I didn’t start participating as soon as I found out about it. This week’s eats are only from one day (I did it, finally!), but it is far from my typical day of eating. Since I only have a couple more days left here, I’m going to all the awesome restaurants I’ve wanted to try before I leave. So here goes! It’s in chronological order this time, so no labels 😛
Porridge/Oat cooking tip: always start with less liquid than you think will be necessary. If all the liquid is absorbed before the grains reach your desired consistency, add more liquid, only 1 or 2T at a time until you have the result you want.
I have a ton more farmer’s market photos, but they will have to wait until tomorrow’s post.
Then we had lunch at a new-to-Chicago vegan chain – Native Foods Cafe!
This was probably the best savory thing I ate all day.
Since our food took longer than usual, they decided to buy us dessert. I got some vegan cheesecake that was way too sweet, so I ended up just eating the crust, and finishing my mom’s deliciously rich peanut butter parfait. I originally wanted a chocolate love pie, but they were all out! Which made me really sad.
For dinner we made reservations at a really nice sushi place – had to get one more fancy sushi dinner in before I leave! The parents and I shared almost everything. **warning: this next bit is mostly pictures of fish dishes, please skip over this if you are offended or disgusted in any way**
Then we finished the day, and drove to what is by far the best gelato in the city of Chicago – Black Dog Gelato.
This was so worth the stomach ache/bloating I had after.
Now I’m off to pack. While watching the misfits. With blog-reading breaks.
Great eats today?
