Tasty Tuesday

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Last weekend Chris and I jumped on our bikes and rode downtown to the Taste of Chicago to get in on a little foodie action. We proceeded to taste: 
french fries with curry sauce


chorizo empanadas


meatballs


steak tacos 


beef perogies


and a good old fashioned Chicago dog for dessert.


And then we went on to bike about 20 miles all over the city in an attempt to work off the 15,000 calories we just ate in one setting.  So while the Taste was a good time, I discovered I'm not exactly a huge fan of large eating festivals in 90 degree heat. There was just something about being surrounded by thousands of other hot people, licking their fingers while stuffing their faces that kinda grossed me out. *it's not judging if it's true.

All things aside, if you're still looking to book a vacation this summer come to Chicago. Just look how beautiful this city is, I can't get over it.




I've gotta keep this short and sweet because I'm busy working at a unicorn sales conference all day today. Wish me luck.

Happy Tuesday!

P.S. This favorite blogger of mine might be having the most simple giveaway ever. All you have to do is follow Bon on Instagram @thelifeofbon and you can win $50! Check out her page for details.

  1. I love Taste of Chicago!!
    There are always way to many things to choose from & not enough tickets! :P
    I totally agree though after you get food you just want to move away from the crowds (esp if it's freaking hot and humid).

  3. I can't believe you put ketchup on your hot dog in Chicago!!! That's like almost bad enough to get you deported, isn't it?? ;)

  7. I went to Taste of Chicago like. . . three years ago? And yeah, I felt all sticky too. And so crowded! But now I'm super hungry for a hotdog. Is 7am to early for a hotdog?

  8. How are you alive after all that amazing food?! It's 8:45 Texas time and now I'm starving for French fries. I hope you are happy.

  9. I don't blame you, a food festival in 90 weather sounds uncomfortable.

  11. You are so right there is no better place to be than in Chicago during the summer (the winter is a whole 'nother story). Hands down real Chicago dogs is the number one thing I miss about living in the midwest. Holy yum!

  14. Well Chicago looks amazing. It's officially ON THE LIST. I also love that you had chips and curry sauce- I didn't realise that anywhere outside of the UK sold this!! Totally get the food festival thing though- I love them, but I just choose to focus on my own food and ignore the face-stuffers around me. xx

  17. Gah, I don't like you right now for two reasons - #1. I want that food in my belly, and I can't reach through the screen to grab it, so thanks for tempting me. And #2. Had to cancel my summer trip to Chicago, thanks for rubbing it in :( Oh well, enjoy both for the two of us!

  18. I love Chorizo!! All that food looks good but agree watching all that greasy food being eaten would make me sick. Glad you took to the streets to burn off some of those calorie!!!

  19. I've been in Chicago twice this summer and I'm heading back in a few weeks with a couple other bloggers so I can share my love of the city with them! Chicago in the summertime is perfection!

  21. I love anything regarding large groups of people eating different foods...the Taste of Chicago sounds like a place I need to be.

    XOXO

  22. Being in the heat just zaps my hunger. Also, yes yes yes to curry ANYTHING. Especially fries! There's a place in Dallas (I'll take you if you come!) called The Londoner that has THE BEST curry fries on the planet.

    Now I want fries.
