Who doesn’t love a hoagie! Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, a staple in the community was Home of the Hoagy, best hoagies ever.
Of course, mine could never taste as good, but here is my remix of the hoagie on a tortilla.
We finally made it to the beach, and we had a great time, guys. I had been planning to take the kids all summer but with my schedule, it just kept getting pushed back. Some of the best advice I was ever given as a single parent is to stop and make time for your kids. If you do not, you are teaching them that everything else is more important than they are. Work will always be here. Responsibilities will always be here. But your children will grow up fast. I am glad we were able to make it before the summer ended.
Here’s how I prepared for our day at the beach: prep, prep and more prep. Read More “Beach Bumming. The Top Foods to Pack for the Beach”
Late post! Everyone knows I love food. I am a foodie for life! It’s funny because I was a late foodie. I weighed 110 pounds soaking wet until I was about 21. 😂 But as I got older, I learned to appreciate good food.
Last month, I attended this year’s annual Taste of Chicago, the largest food festival in Chicago. I used to go every year but I hadn’t been in the last several years. I loved it! So many new restaurants and pop-ups. I enjoy sampling different cuisine and then I go home and try and remake it. I tried the taste of nachos from Esperanza, Star of Siam‘s Pad Thai Noodles, Churro Factory-Xurro’s churritos with ice cream and more, but the winner for me was the Italian beef and giardiniera grilled cheese from Doom Street Eats, best grilled cheese ever. Yummy!
Here’s my take on it.
