…Or A Mail-Order Bride

In A Quest For Encased Meats…


We have gone to Chicago. Where, according to such reliable sources as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Abe Froman, the Sausage King Of The World lives.

And there’s nothing not awesome about the quest for encased meat. Nothing.

Back later with more reports of food porn. Or indigestion (the bacon is, sadly, still a-brewing in my guts. I might need someone to send me some TNT).

P.S. Alex is on Top Mommy. Go check him out.

    Get you some TUMS. I used those get extra calcium while I was pregnant with my little man.

    I LOVE Chicago. If you go to Greektown, don’t tell me about the fried cheese. Just send me some…

    Have fun!

    Dude, how proud am I that I spotted Alex immediately?

    For encased meats, nothing beats the Usingers factory store in Milwaukee. Yum.

    Woo hoo, I spotted your little guy right away too! He is too cute!

    I like Chicago (though I’ve only been there once, haha) but ewww… what’s with the pork products?

    Would it be okay if I put up on the stadium big screen “Save Aunt Becky”?

    Enjoy your foray into the civilized wilds of Chicago and your stalking of link-ish prey. Try not to thin the herds too much…we count on their migration for our winter sausage supplies!

    Shade and Sweetwater,

    Wave hi from me! Oh, and if you go to Soldier’s Field (is it still even called that?) don’t get hot-dogs from the concession stands, but from the little stand-alone hot-dog kiosks around the concourses. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

    Do you always eat so much pork products or is this a product of pregnancy? When I was pregnant, the only thing I craved was watermelon. I pretty much lost as much weight in the beginning as I gained in the end.

    Hope you have fun in the big city!

    Just curious if you are in the neighborhood. Stop by my work and I’ll by you lunch.

    There is no such thing as too much bacon. You’re a wimp.

    I just had deja vu writing that sentence. WEIRD.

    Why do I suddenly have a strong craving for Chicago Deep Dish Pizza with Italian sausage?

    Yay Chicago! I’ll be there this weekend. Woohoo! Hope you have lots of fun and eat lots of yummies.
