Walking and eating: Chicago Food Planet Tour.

Last weekend, I was invited to go on a food tour through Chicago with Shanna and Caitlin, hosted by the Chicago Food Planet Tours. We walked through Chicago neighborhoods, learned about residential architecture and local history, and tasted and sampled and ate. Reubens, tea, hummus, cheese, toffee, oils, vinegars, spices, pizza. Oh my.

After the tour, we stopped at Swirlz Cupcakes, and I fell in love with a swirl of frosting.

  5. It was such a very good day, wasn't it? And it made me smile to pull that cupcake out of the bag after the longish drive back to Oshkosh. We have to do this again - Madison, yes?
