Chicago Gourmet




You could probably guess what I did this weekend.  CHICAGO GOURMET!  Have I ever told you I love Groupons?  That is how I was able to attend this wonderful event.  I wish I was drinker but I didn’t really take advantage of all the wonderful wines.  The Husband did have quite a few drinks but he is not a wine drinker either.  The food was to die for.  There were so many tents, it was kinds intimidating and we had The Daughter with us so we had to navigate with a stroller.  Not the greatest thing.  I am ready for next year!  I wanted to share some of my pictures from the event.
