one. Thursday at around 3pm the new Superdawg location in Wheeling announced that it was now open. SO of course I went for dinner. Because, really, how often do you get to say you went to Superdawg on its opening day? About every 60 years, that is how often! I got myself a Superdawg and Superveggies and a chocolate shake. And I totally managed to dump ranch dressing all over my car! [gallery type="rectangular" link="none" size="full" ids="91140,91142,91143,91145,91146,91148,91149,91150,91151,91152,91153,91154"] two. I determined last night, standing over the stove, eating raw on the inside, burnt on the outside, Swedish pancakes straight from the pan, that I will...

In my effort to save money I've been touting around my old Intermezzo travel mug full of coffee each morning. Chelsa commented on it the other day and I told her that it was the cafe in the Krannert Center where I spent most of my undergrad volunteering. By far, the thing I remember most about Intermezzo was the time they introduced the meal of the century: the Six Layers of Kevin Bacon...

As part of our New Year's resolutions Chelsa and I have started to make a list of restaurants in Chicago that we really want to try. On Friday we kicked off our eating out efforts with a trip to the new DMK Burger Bar. The place was small but nice and had some weird thing on the TV that looked like what plays on Windows Media Player when you play a song. As I don't like beer and didn't feel like spending $10+ on a mixed drink I decided to go for their house-made cherry soda. Which was basically an Italian...

Tilapia Mango Tacos Recipe: Cook a tilapia filet, about 4 minutes per side. Shred. Chop up some red onion. Buy some fresh mango salsa. Top some corn tortillas with everything. Yummy. And less than 10 minutes. And healthy. I think. ...

1. There is a new French Market near my work downtown. Which is amazing because they have lots of little lunch places like a crepe stand and a cheese shop where you can get a really delicious duck sandwich :-) But I am most excited about the fact that they are getting a Belgian frite stand! You don't know how excited I am and how long I have waited for a Belgian fritestand! 2. Yesterday I successfully made coffee in my coffeemaker. I rock. I have devised a new savings plan: for every day that I don't go to Starbucks I...

1. I would be one of those people at my corner Starbucks who they'd know my order as soon as I came in if I ever ordered the same drink twice in a row. I bounce between mochas and caramel macchiato, and pumpkin spice lattes, and white mochas, and espresso truffles (when I am having a really depressed morning) and other froufrou seasonal drinks. This morning I ordered, for the first time ever, a peppermint mocha. I always argued against it because I am not a fan of the taste of mint. But despite that I do like chocolate mints...

one. So I don't watch the Office. I mean, I love it every time I see it but I don't watch it regularly and have maybe seen about ten episodes. But I watched the wedding. And cried. And cried. And once he cut off his tie I was pretty much GONE. two. I hate when people say things about your life that you know are true but you just don't want to believe. three. What's worse than waiting for someone to call? When you're waiting for someone to call and your phone is out of batteries and therefore vibrates every two minutes. four. Guys take note. Pink...

one. I found out last night that Robot Chicken is not about a chicken and Aqua Teen Hunger Force is not about aquatic teenagers. two. Saturday morning around 8am the gay couple upstairs were having a very loud fight. Again. I heard I giant thump of something hitting the ground. I heard something being dragged across the floor. Then about half hour later I heard a very long zipper closing noise...
