This past weekend, the general opinion in my family was that it was time for an escape. We decided to go to Chicago, just for one night. We arrived in time for lunch on Saturday, did plenty of walking and shopping in the afternoon, and collapsed onto the grass in Millennium Park. There we met two friends of the family. They brought the most perfect and classy picnic food!
Of course there was wine, for those over 21, and sparkling blood orange juice for the minors. There was melon with prosciutto. And my favorite, goat cheese on crackers with Edward's ingenious homemade green tomato chutney. Mmmmm.
