Three things for this morning.
1) Yesterday morning while I was doing this:
(Todd is getting mighty sneaky with that camera.)
Todd was making me this for breakfast:
Yum! I love English muffins and topped with peanut butter and banana, it’s the perfect meal to grab and go on the way to work. I’m so lucky that he’s willing to help me out in the morning. I tend to either be really calm and done getting ready quite early or running around like a crazy person. Yesterday was a running around like a crazy person day since I was packing up those last-minute items for my Chicago trip.
Todd snapped these photos for me. He’s getting used to having to wait a second to eat so I can get a shot of our meal. Thanks, Todd for a wonderful breakfast!
2) I made it to Chicago safe and sound. My sister and I had a reservation for dinner at Hot Chocolate. On the way there one of Em’s heels broke!
What a bummer, they were cute shoes! Em attempted to break the other heel saying, “I need a new pair of flats anyway.” but the other heel wouldn’t budge. She just took it like a champ, kept on walking and barely even hobbled the whole way to the restaurant. I’ve never had a heel break before I doubt I’d be able to pull off one heel so gracefully.
3) I was so looking forward to eat at Hot Chocolate. I love eating at new restaurants and this place had a dessert menu to die for. We started the meal out with an order of soft pretzels. They brought out big nuggets with (very) spicy mustard and cheese fondue. I loved the size of the nuggets. Each one was 2-3 bites and perfect for dipping in the cheese. I’m going to have to try making nuggets that size next time Todd and I attempt homemade pretzels.
Dinner was pretty good but dessert was great. Em and I were “on vacation” so we each ordered our own dessert, I had the “Thoughts on a Peanut Butter Cup”, Em had a “Dreamsicle” and then we split a vanilla bean hot chocolate.
Peanut butter mousse, housemade peanut butter cups, concord grape reduction, yes please.
Orange sorbet, meringue, vanilla bean milk shake, such a creative combination, yum!
And then there was the hot chocolate…
That was the sweetest thing I have ever put into my body. Em and I both immediately hit a sugar high and by the time we got home, mine had worn off and I fell asleep immediately. We had a movie in and I’m not confident I even made it through the title screen.
So far this Chicago weekend if off to a great start. Time to get ready for our Fly Yoga class, I’m so excited to try it!
