A Taste of Chicago

When you think of Chicago food, you think of pizza.  The other night we ordered delivery from Giordano’s, home of the “World Famous Stuffed Pizza”.

We got a pie with sausage, peppers, and onions … a super thick deep dish crust stuffed with your choice of toppings and the topped off with cheese and sauce.  Omigosh it was good.

Over the weekend we drove to nearby Andersonville and had brunch at Big Jones on N. Clark Street.  I am kicking myself for not having my camera with me to take pictures of our meals.  Sooooooo good.  Their menu has a southern flair and uses locally grown, sustainably-farmed foods and is in one word, delicious.  Mike had the Andouille & Sweet Potato Biscuits and I had the Cheddar Corn Cakes.  The portions were big enough that we could barely finish and even little Ava had a few bites.  We will definitely be revisiting this restaurant and I’ll be sure to have my camera with me when we do!
