We went to Chicago this past weekend. I was a Chicago virgin, what a great place, and oh so huge. We stayed with pete's sister in "uptown," went strolling in lincoln park, ate in china town with an uncle, dabbled in wicker park where i scored some long wanted cook books, walked along chi-town's beautifully planned waterfront (saw a body bag; a fairly real experience), had some amazing mexican food (cant really rep true mexican in Cleveland), scoped the logan square area, hung with billy, had a good brunch or two, and one of the best meals of my life at avec latenight in the loop. I definitely need some more time there. Pics to come soon. I decided to take my "film" camera so they are on the way.

i've been canning

I'm in love with canning. The most recent job was red root relish (somewhat unsure of this one, pictured). Items that have been canned or pickled: beets, green beans, peaches, cauliflower, salsa, tomato sauce, whole tomatoes and the best of all - damson jam. Come to my place and Ill feed you all winter long.

I had the honor of taking care of these girls (rhode island reds) because DAN went to PDX. Heart strings all around.

100 acres

This weekend we went to 100 Acres - an old orchard sold to a developer who seems to be sitting on the property - only the roads have been put in. Pretty eerie place, it felt like there had been a recent death. Thousands of trees are left behind plaques that say "3 acre lot," or "1.5 acre lot for sale." Lucky for us there were many apples to be found. After extensive exploring and bloody legs we found the early variety we were looking for. We will definitely be back in the fall.
