So back to my birthday weekend. Friday night we went out to dinner in the North End with friends. It was delicious and the sangria was fantastic. Of course I forgot my camera. Bummer. At least we got a table on the rooftop. It was great weather! On Saturday, Mel and Kirsten came over and we did a little crafting. I'm not finished with my fall wreath yet, so you will all just have to wait for a picture. Then there was Sunday. Since the rest of the weekend was crazy, we had a very relaxing Sunday at home. I did have my camera and captured the highlights of the day. The food.
Amit made me Vanilla French Toast for breakfast.
It was delicious.
Note the pathetic-looking dog in the background. I didn't share.
Lunch was the highlight of the day.
Portillo's Italian Beef shipped to us from Dad.
It was great to have a little bit of home with us on my birthday.
Rolls + Beef + Giardiniera = AWESOMENESS
So ridiculously good!!
It was like we were actually eating at Portillo's!!!
I still am eating leftovers and it's still so good! There really is nothing like good-old Chicago food. Boston has nothing on my Chicago Italian Beef. Thanks so much to Dad and Grace for sending it! I loved it!!
