Last weekend, Chris and I visited family in Chicago. As I mentioned on Wednesday, we were pretty happy with the chilly temperatures. It was over 100 degrees in LA that weekend, so it was great to escape the heat for a few days!
We stayed with his uncle, and were absolutely blown away by their hospitality. Every meal was homemade from scratch. From tikka masala with homemade Greek yogurt, to three kinds of ice cream (including green tea- yum!), to fresh grilled salmon and shrimp, and so much more. Oh and did I mention the homemade French rolls from scratch in the morning? AMAZING. It inspired me to get back into trying new recipes again. Lately I’ve been distracted with other projects!
On Saturday, we spent the day exploring the city a little bit with my sister-in-law and her husband. It seemed like every where you looked there was a beaming bride and groom. Perfect sunny weather for it too!
Last but not least, I was able to catch up with my friend from college and meet her adorable little baby girl. She was the sweetest thing, always smiling at everyone she saw. It made me miss my niece and nephew!
