Some food-related (mostly) things we enjoyed this week:
Â Rare find in our area, and perfect for my birthday lunch — surprisingly decent Tex-Mex!
Â Our favorite EvanstonÂ restaurant offers an excellent “Selection of Local & European Cheeses & Meats.”
Â We planted a balconyÂ herb garden: basil, dill, oregano and thyme. Plus 2 tiny tomato plants.
Â Our sister-in-law cooked this amazing slow-cooker buffalo chicken for us when we recently visited our Brooklyn family. My attempt to re-create it tasted a little more like pulled BBQ chicken with a hint of buffalo sauce, but it was still delicious and the leftovers were perfect for nachos a couple of days later.
Who knew how much better our favorite breakfast of avocado toast could be with the simple addition of sliced tomatoes and leftover crispy bacon?
