This is the big smile of someone who l-o-v-e-d the beautiful, sunshine-filled weather we had the other weekend. It’s incredible how the sunshine can transform your entire mood! My friend CA and I were both starving so we headed to The Big Board on H Street for an order of fried pickles. I haven’t had a burger in forever and “The Great Chicago Fire” burger spoke to my soul and my grumbling stomach. This burger came topped with habanero jack cheese and a chili-mango salsa and a mango-habanero sauce. Okay, I need to stop because I’m getting myself hungry again.
After lunch, we headed over to Union Market to people-watch, dog-watch and do a little window shopping. We both dug down deep and got in line for Little Baby’s Ice Cream. I mean, with fun flavors like “Mint Julep” and “Thai Iced Tea,” how could we not?? As soon as I locked eyes with their Speculoos flavor, it was love at first sight and I had to get it. Cooke butter + ice cream = a few of my favorite things combined.
