I made some blueberry muffins last night for Barry to take into work. Today is the first day of the semester (even though he taught all last week) at the law school.

Beating the Heat

Probably the best way to beat the heat and regain a bit of childhood to boot.

Fries On A Grill

If Samuel Jackson can make a movie called, "Snakes On A Plane", My version would be "Fries On A Grill".

Crema Salvadoreña

Still visiting mom, further up on Odgen and Harlem, we popped into Berwyn Fruit Market and Barry picked up some Crema for the chili I made the other day.


Used some leftover HOT giardiniera from Novi's beef on Odgen and Oak Park Avenue as a marinade and then grilled it up on the Weber. The chicken is from Peoria Meat Packing on Lake.


Back and forth to Mom's... she's been in the hospital lately.
We hit Dukes on 81st and Harlem for a beef.

Mom and her kids cooled off in the lagoon...

Schmidt, Garden and Martin

Way cool Prairie School architects, Schmidt, Garden and Martin built this boat house circa 1890 or so...

It's still awesome today.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, long time pal Ron and his partner Jeff visited from Seattle. Here they are in the splendour that is Humboldt Park.
