With all of the hustle and bustle of finals week coming up in a few days, I haven’t had any time for writing or reading any of your amazing blogs! I promise I’ll be back in full swing soon! I miss catching up on all of your lives every day!
On Wednesday, Andy and I took a little break from reality to hang out downtime and have a short visit with his brother in Chicago on his day off.
On Tuesday night, I stopped at Culvers for a quick dinner on the way to my dad’s house.
I chose a slightly healthier option than most items on the menu… Culvers originated in Wisconsin, and if you have one where you live, you can probably tell by taking a quick glance at the menu. Frozen custard, cheese curds and burgers known for their buttery buns? It really doesn’t get more Wisconsin than that. I guess it would if you added beer to the mix, but I love Culvers just the way it is.
Even though Culvers is definitely known for their deliciously unhealthy foods, their Strawberry Fields salad is TOO GOOD. Seriously. I opted to leave out the tomatoes, but aside from that, it is topped with fresh strawberries, blue cheese, pecans and grilled chicken. So amazing.
I enjoyed my salad while watching TV and snuggling with my favorite kitty at my dad’s house, which is close to Andy’s workplace, while I waited for Andy to get done with work.
It’s always good to see my kitty.
We arrived in Chicago around midnight, and woke up early Tuesday morning for a breakfast that is becoming a tradition for the three of us.
For all of you Chicago kids out there.. have you ever been to Wildberry Pancakes & Cafe??
