Chicago Dining

Most of my friends know I love to eat... so they often come to me for restaurant recommendation... and I can usually give it to them, except when they ask me about Chicago...  since I cook when I am in town...

Fried Pork Cutlets with Japanese Curry

Sometimes I credit my ability to resist dining out on non-travel weeks to the fact that I am not a bad cook (hey! where's your modesty?  gone with a good meal~)  I had to return something at the mall after work today and I was hungry!  I was so tempted to eat at one of the restaurants but I know I have ingredients at home to cook with... I am glad I did!  It looks daunting but everything is actually done within an hour (cook, eat, and all)  I ate it with rice but if you don't like rice, I think it goes well with french bread too!

New England Inspired Meals

As some of you knew, I was just at Portland, Maine again... I love, love, love that place... probably would move there if it's not so cold in the winter!  Love the seafood there - so fresh, so delicious.  I went to Harbor Fish Market just off Commerce/Rt 1 and picked up some goodies (smoked trout, smoked bluefish, and fresh minced clams in a tub).  The smoked trout are consumed as delicious snacks daily in lieu of a real meal at work and I made Linguine con le Vongole (Linguine with Clams) and New England Clam Chowder using my fresh clams.  Both dishes were so easy to make - great for a weekday dinner.

I was originally going to bike/visit Long Grove/do stuff outside the house today... however, it was gloomy and cold so I changed my mind... so instead, I cooked and baked... (maybe I will still do a grocery store run later today...)
