Dough-y Day

The word of the day is Dough.

You see, Chicagoland had a very special visitor this weekend: Heather from Singing With My Heart! I have come to know Heather pretty well over the past six months and she is a super-sweet and lovely person. We’ve tweeted, texted, e-mailed, and chatted many times; I was really excited back in the summer when she told me she’d be in my area this weekend. Of course we made plans to get together.

We’ve been counting the days on Twitter for many, err, days, and today finally arrived (as it tends to do!). As it turned out, Weaselmomma was free too, and so we made it a Three’s Company kind of lunch.

First? Lou Malnati’s, for some great Chicago deep dish pizza. (There’s Dough #1!) Seriously, so good.

Then we walked that off for a while on the Riverwalk, and once we felt able to handle dessert, we went to one of my favorite places in the whole wide world, Cookie Dough Creations. There you can get egg-free (100% safe to eat) cookie dough. (There’s Dough #2!)

And now I feel very dough-y. (Aaaand, there’s Dough #3.) Blech.

But of course, it was totally worth it.

    *sigh* I almost got Lou's for dinner tonight just for myself because my husband called at 6 to ask what *I* was making for dinner for him while I was still out running errands. But I was good. Instead I enjoyed a yummy homemade meatball sandwich while he ate ummm. I don't know what he ate 🙂 Thanks for making me jealous. Hope you had fun!

    I had a fantastic time today, thank you so much for making time for me, and being the awesome hostess that you are. I needed the down time, THANK YOU! 🙂


    ps: the dough was FANTASTIC, even if I am SO STUFFED now.

    Pizza always sounds good to me. Cookie dough, well, I have to be quite hungry in order to want to eat a big glob of that stuff. I love cookies though. Good stuff. – Jason
