I arrived back home yesterday evening from a long work week in Chicago. Although it was long and tiring days I enjoyed my time dining at Chicago restaurants and visiting with my parents that were also in town for the work show.image

A Chicago visit obviously calls for a deep dish pizza. Oh my goodness it was so good!

My parents, B and I went out to eat at a delicious Italian restaurant Friday night and I ordered one of my favorite Italian dishes. Linguine with clams in a white wine sauce.

Saturday evening some coworkers and I went to Burger Bistro so I could try what all the hype was about. Everyone was raving about it. I ordered the Paris Burger that was a grass-fed burger topped with candied tomatoes, onion jams and brie. It definitely exceeded my expectations!

Have a great Monday!

    Can I thank you for getting me even more excited for our 9 hour layover in Chicago on the way back to Kuwait in September? I’m not sure where we should eat. It all looks so good. It does have to be pizza though!
