Quick update

We got back yesterday, and I've spent most of today trying to get up to speed with work stuff. That's not what you care about though...

Chicago was fabulous. OMG the food... I'll write up some reviews later, but anyone who lives within driving distance of Chicago needs to visit Carlos over at Café Laguardia, have the gnocchi and a few desserts at Hot Chocolate, and enjoy a great pizza pot pie at Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Company. That last one, though, takes cash only. Oh, and stay at Ray's Bucktown Bed and Breakfast. The breakfasts are just amazing.

Diet? What diet? I'm bloody stuffed!

Pizza pot pie? I'm intrigued. Not quite intrigued enough to make a special trip to Chi-town, but intrigued nonetheless...

They take a bowl, put the mozzarella cheese on the bottom, put in the sauce and, optionally, mushrooms (whole). They cover it with their dough overlapping the bowl about half way and cook it. It's brought out table side, flipped over and the bowl is removed, leaving this fabulous pizza bowl with the cheese oozing at the top. Sure, the presentation value will be lost on you, but the food was pretty schnazzy too.
