Look at this pulled pork pot pie. It has wee pastry pig on top of it. It was delicious!

I looked after the cats of some friends last week. On our last night together, I made cat circles. I think the circles were just a little too big. The cats were indifferent.

This is the U of C pep band playing “Livin’ on A Prayer” at Homecoming last weekend. There were corn dogs and temporary tattoos and walking tacos and grilled meat and a football game and lots of beer. It was super fun.

Carly and I went to Uncle Mike’s Place for Filipino breakfast on Sunday. It’s one of our things. We’re trying to get a lot of things in before she moves to Algonquin and our new thing becomes going to Culver’s (OMG I hope this happens).

favorite place to be alone in Chicago?

One of the places I go to be alone in Chicago (if only for a few minutes) is a car on the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier.

Not sure why but I thought this would be a scrim that appealed to @commanderrobot #lyricopera

I saw Il Trovatore at the Lyrica Opera last night. This is the crazy-looking scrim.

i like to eat: longanisa and guisada

I didn’t accomplish much this weekend except eat and watch tv.

On Saturday, I met Carly and Elisa at Uncle Mike’s Place for Filipino breakfast and some girl talk. Elisa got the tocino while Carly and I had longanisa. Filipino breakfast comes with eggs, champurrado, garlic fried rice, and kamatis (tomatoes). It looks like this:


Filipino breakfast @ Uncle Mike's Place

After Carly left for next adventure, Elisa and I hung out long enough that the owner gave us a couple of treats to snack on — bowls of white rice with pork sinigang, and then a cold ginataan with corn. Delicious.

On Sunday, Elisa invited me over to try her carne guisada. It was yummy. I did not take pictures. Boo! And then we watched Infernal Affairs, which was fantastic. And then we ate ice cream and watched Flower Boy Ramen Shop which may be my new favorite tv show based on the title alone. I’ve never really watched Korean soap operas before but Hulu appears to have tons of them and as I’m all caught up on Downton Abbey, Absolutely Fabulous, and Sherlock, I need some new shit to watch.

weekend wrap-up: the boys and the brunch

Famous last words. It was more like three tacos. And a horchata.

And all this after splitting the pimento cheese plate with Danita at The Southern.

But before we split two desserts (and I drank a milkshake) at Hot Chocolate:

I'm waddling home. (Just spotted Milk Chocolate Milkshake, Doughnuts, And Blueberry Lemon Tart on @Foodspotting)

Hot Chocolate: so much dessert

And this was just Friday night.
