I just returned home from spending a fabulous weekend in Chicago. The company was amazing (my sister, her boyfriend, and some of the best blogger friends), and the food delicious. From cupcakes galore (there is a seriously ridiculous blog posting coming soon about this...possibly more than one) to sushi at Bob San and wine and cheese at Vintage Wine Bar, I was quite satisfied with my culinary experience. Friday night, me, my sister, her boyfriend, and his brother had dinner at my sister's before catching the evening performance of Wicked (SO good, go see it ASAP!).
Then, bake the squash at 375 degrees for an hour-an hour and a half, until it's tender. This is SERIOUSLY heaven. Soo sweet and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We couldn't stop talking about it all through dinner. Here was the final-plated meal (on the plates I grew up eating off that my sister is now in possession of).
Clearly, my parents and their culinary craziness rubbed off on both me and my sister. Though I am already missing Chicago and its people and food, I can't wait for her to move to Boston so we can cook many more meals together!
