Summertime Feast

Has anyone else noticed how much harder it is to blog in the summer?

There are just so many other things to do in the summer that don’t involve sitting down at the computer, typing away. Like going on vacation in northern Wisconsin. (Fun!)

And like eating.

Today, I ate a cheese pierogi; sauerkraut pierogi; tortilla-encrusted tilapia taco; Irish egg roll; mustard-fried catfish; chopped salad with tomatoes, mushrooms, and blue cheese; blueberry Italian ice; mango rice pudding with dried cranberries; garlic mozzarella cheese bread; bruschetta; Italian sausage; breaded eggplant sandwich; hot link (spicy sausage); varenyky (potato, eggplant, snow pear, and Indian spice sauce), grilled shredded tandoori turkey, and cheesecake.

Yum! So where was I able to get all of these delectable tasties?

It could all be found at the magical once-a-year festival called the Taste of Chicago! And what a taste it was! Iwanski and I shared in these delicacies, and we’re both really full—and really happy. I love living in a city that has so many unique, yummy culinary treats to partake in.

And tomorrow, I’m going to work it all off (or at least some of it!) at Saturday morning yoga. And then I’m going to gain it all back again at Iwanski’s nephew’s birthday party tomorrow afternoon—where I’ve heard that burgers will be served up hot from the grill—yummy! And then I’ll work it off again at Chicago’s Gay Pride Parade on Sunday, where Iwanski and I will be marching in the parade in conjunction with my coworkers at the United Way. (I already have my United Way t-shirt all decked out with colorful ribbons for the occasion. I can’t wait!)

It’s summertime, and festival season is in full swing. I couldn’t be happier.
