Chicago Part II

This is a week in the making, but here it is...


Dinner was a lovely meal at Andalous. We all ate too much, but it was very good. Sister had the Chef's Chicken (the sauce was very, very good). Cousin R had the Andalous tagine and I had the Vegetarian Pastilla, which was really great. We rolled ourselves out of there for martinis at the Kit-Kat Lounge, a bar in Cousin R's neighborhood. They have martini specials on Sundays, so we each got one (their list is was difficult to choose!). I can't remember what everyone got, but I got the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle martini which was really wonderful. We had talked about going to a blues club, but we were all tired and very full so we went home.


Our last day! We had bagels to go at a local "NY diner" which were OK by non-NY standards. Sister and I spent the day at the Art Institute and seeing the Bean before meeting up with Cousin R for lunch at Whole Foods (we were all over big, heavy meals and their salad bar is pretty exciting) before heading off to the airport. Dinner was on the plane - a purchased Potbelly sandwich. Not terrible, but not the best thing ever. I'm a subway girl.
