While Sharon was in Atlanta, I got to visit with my family in Chicago. It was great seeing my parents, sister, aunt and uncle, cousins, grandparents and everyone else! It was a fun weekend and I ended up eating WAAAAYYY too much (as expected). First was an amazing Thanksgiving spread from my aunt, mom, cousin’s wife and extended family. The highlight for me was the delicious sweet potatoes, complete with mini-marshmallows.
Over the weekend, my immediate family had a Jewish brunch with my grandmother — consisting of several smoked fishes, bagels from New York Bagels & Bialys, cream cheese spreads and tuna fish salad. Who can pass up a delicious toasted bagel with lox?
Also worth mentioning was 2 pies from Lou Malnati’s — fantastic Chicago pizza. The deep dish pepperoni with mushroom was gooey and perfect.
