Busch vs Wrigley - Rain Delays

In the past month, I experienced rain delays at Busch Stadium and Wrigley Field.  Yes, I am biased in my opinion, but Busch Stadium wins by a long shot.

It rained about the same amount of time at both stadiums, yet Wrigley's rain delay was twice as long.

A couple things resulted from this.  Wrigley Field almost cleared out during the delay.  Pretty much everyone stuck around at Busch.  

The fans at Wrigley also got rowdier.  Obnoxiously so.  I told Mike on our walk home if I was at the game with anyone who acted like that, I would move.  It's just rude.

It was nice, after the delay, to be able to move down close to the field (since most people left).  We sat right behind the Cardinals dugout and I really enjoyed watching Haris's pitches come in and hit the glove.  It's crazy.  That was nice.  (Aside from my new neighbors and the wet seats...)

I think Mike & I sat in 4 different seats during the course of the game, pausing in a few other spots too.

oh heyyyy missouri flag!

P.S. Wrigley's trying to get you excited about the new Hot Doug's in the stadium.  Please note:  you can only purchase them if you have bleacher seats.  (At least that's what an usher told us.)

P.P.S.  Who watched the game last night.  So good!  And I'm not upset with Yadi & Mike being tossed.  They were just standing up for the pitchers.
And I loved my dad's response to the 9th inning homer (winning the game), which I emailed him about immediately upon waking up and checking the final score.  "hard to believe - I actually turned on the tv the inning before.  I saw Carpenter draw his walk and when Peralta came up I said, "knock it out of there, Jhonny!".  Of course, we do that all the time, which is why its amazing when it actually happens."  Yep, my dad is the best.

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…
