Chicago Food Trucks

It's sunny, a nice day for a walk, and they recently set-up a food truck spot even closer to our office.  All reasons to visit a food truck.

I wouldn't say the Chicago Food Truck scene is booming, like other cities, but it is pretty solid and there are a lot of trucks roaming around.

Here's a great link to see what's around you.  I can't vouch for the reliability of the open later tab, but open now is usually pretty accurate.

I work in River North so when my co-workers and I make our way to food trucks we usually go over to NBC tower where there are usually a few congregated.  

But now!  There's a spot a few of them come every Wednesday at Illinois & Rush, which is super close to us.

There was even the doughnut vault one at the green city farmer's market last Saturday, which I went to with a friend.  I got some salted caramel doughnut or something of the sort.  It was delicious.  Especially comforting on the cold, rainy day we had Saturday.


  1. Haha I'm so glad you posted the link to the food truck finder website! I obsessively refresh that page on Thursdays to see what's where.

    You should totally post reviews of your favorite food trucks too (cause I know you have all this free time where you are trying to figure out what to post on your blog)!

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…

5 Year Journal - Again

I know I've mentioned my 5 year journal here before, but now that I'm in my second year and everyday I get to look back at what I did that day last year I can't tell you how much I love it.  And I imagine I will love it more and more as the years go on.  I'm already dreaming of year 5!  

It takes a maximum of 5 minutes to jot down a few notes from the day and then you move on.

I have this one.  (I'm pretty sure it was more than $12 when my grandma got it for me so that looks like a steal.)
But this one looks amazing!

I turned 30!

Guys, I turned 30 a week ago!  And had my big celebration almost two weeks ago.  It's been a busy couple weeks, but I'm here, now, to tell you about it!

Celebration #1
I started the celebrations with a small Logan Square bar crawl.  It was honestly really fun.  I really wasn't sure what to expect.  With us starting at 3 and traveling to 4 bars I assumed we would be done by ... 8:30..?  I got home at 12:30.  Whew.  My friends know how to party.

We started at Hopewell at 3.  I think this was the perfect first stop for a few reasons.  Hopewell is BUSY on the weekends, even during the day.  This was an easy place for people to filter in and gather as they were able to make it, in a bright and energetic place.  Then as it got more and more busy, we moved on.  Don't get there any later than 3 if you're meeting a group.  We got one of the last "spaces" when we walked in.

Then we traveled down Milwaukee to Rocking Horse.  This was a last minute decision.  I leaned th…
