Homemade Peanut Butter: The moment my dad gave me a food processor for Christmas I knew my first recipe would be peanut butter. I'm DELIGHTED with the results and the recipe is soon to come!
Zoo Lights: Lincoln Park Zoo has Zoo Lights every year which is generally a Christmas-y things and even it being a bus ride away, I didn't have time to go before Christmas. But better late than never I went last week! It was oddly depressing to hear Christmas music on January 4th though...
2am food: When my 23 year old sister was in town for a few days, I became aware of just how old I am. By 1am on New Year's Eve, I was ready to turn in and call it a night when my little sis was ready to hit the town. So we rallied and went to a nearby bar then a nearby mexican joint for dinner #2.
It's OK Beer! Meeting up with friends led to a night at quite possibly the weirdest bar in Chicago. It seemingly had no name, you're only allowed in by knocking and we were nearly the only patrons. A great night indeed!
Cozy Cozy: My sister's apartment may kill me slowly by poison of cat dander but it sure has a cozy fireplace. #worthit
Virginia Slims: Since the dawn of time, my grandma has been smoking Virgina Slims Ultra Light Regulars and while smoking is terrible and all, when my grandma does it, it's ok.
