Seriously, why couldn't have this been while I lived there??

I was getting my Chicago fix from They posted a story about the filming of a new Johnny Depp/Christian Bale movie in my old hood. But they mentioned the actual street where this was taped. And no joke, it is 1 block from my old apartment! Ack! This never happened when I lived there! See if for yourself:

Sunday Dinner

I love to cook when I have enough time to move at a leisurely pace. That's why Sunday Dinner is such a great night of the week for food in our house. It's usually the night I try new recipes that I find from cookbooks, blogs, etc. Tonight was an especially successful meal. I was craving feta cheese for some reason. So the menu du jour was:

Chicken stuffed with Feta, Garlic and Sun Dried Tomatoes
Asparagus with a Lemon Vinegrette (adapted from my Chicago friend Abbey's recipe)
Whole wheat couscous with roasted garlic

It was fufiling and not too guilty a meal :) Any recipes you would like to recommend for next Sunday...leave in the comments!!

And if you are into food, please check out Abbey's blog at

Golf for dummies!

My work had a manager's outing at a golf course today. Mind you, I've never played before however I'm up for being in outside on a sunny day rather than in the office! Ends up that I did play and I had a great time!! Maybe I should check out getting some clubs of my own!
