Eat Right Around Chicago

Walk, Run or Trot this Thanksgiving Weekend!

I plan to eat my face off on Turkey day.  Yes, you read that right.  I've been having dreams about mashed potatoes, butternut squash and gravy.  So I'm going to cook up a feast 70's style - nothing gourmet - shoepeg corn in butter sauce, frozen peas, cranberry relish, white rolls, chocolate pie (pudding and ready-made crust like my 90 year old Memere would make it) and a turkey the size of an overweight cat.  The only "fancy" will be the cheese we bought at Binny's (which I highly recommend you check out their cheese and meat selection).  Have I lost my mind?  No.  I'm going trot!  To help offset the good eats, I am doing a Thanksgiving day Turkey Trot and on Black Friday, I'm going to participate in the inaugural ChicagoNow Black Friday 5K and Food Drive!
