Tuesday:) Talkin’ Terrific Food

22 Jun

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

~J.R.R. Tolkien


As promised, more Chicago food traditions. I told you about the Chicago hot dog with tomato, dark green relish, diced onion, small peppers, a slice of kosher picke, sprinkled  with celery salt on a poppy seed bun. Then, a huge bunch of greasy freshly cut thin fries piled on the side. Ketchup for the fries, NEVER on the hot dog. Gosh…I miss these back in Texas.

I had some thin crust pizza, crisp and heavy with sauce, spicy Italian sausage,  and cheese. The cheese melted to the point of almost brown, the crust crisp as a cracker.

Then, there’s the deep dish pizza with carmelized crust. OMG!!! One slice is a meal, and two slices you explode. I had two slices that day.
