Starbucks Evenings

March 11th, 2014 · 1 Comment


I’d heard about this Starbucks evening menu with wine and beer and fancy small plates, but I’d never seen it in real life… til last month. I walked into a Starbucks in River North for a late coffee and there it was. Looked good. And a lot of people who were sitting around the cafe were partaking.

XXII Olympics Opening Ceremony

February 14th, 2014 · No Comments


Last Friday Michelle hosted an International/Olympic-themed dinner party at her house. Each person picked a country and made some food or a drink from there. I picked U.S. and made banana cupcakes with peanut butter frosting (recipe). We also had Moscow Mules, Mexican cups, French tarts, American sliders, Mexican guacamole, Italian pasta, Swedish meatballs, Swiss (??) vodka-soaked gummy lifesavers, cake shaped as a bobsled track, an ice luge for shots, a few Spanish tapas dishes, and many bottles of wine from around the world.

We mostly just sat around eating and drinking and debating which was the cutest guy from each country as they did their march in the Sochi Olympics opening ceremony. Oh, also a lot of discussion about Shaun White‘s haircut.
