Are any readers out there from Chicago? Or should I say Chiberia? Pretty rough, isn’t it? Let’s get some warm, hearty food in our systems and warm up already.
I can’t remember if it was my Dad or my Uncle Andy who said this but on more than one occasion, one or both of them have mentioned that one of their favorite meals growing up was pasta with hot dogs, peas and water. I know. I just threw up in my mouth too. Sounds gnarly. Whenever this is mentioned we respond with…WHAT are you talking about?! My Grandma was a better than amazing cook, and the inspiration behind a lot of our dishes. I just can’t imagine her serving pasta with hot dogs, peas and water!
