Lovely weekend - Saturday included Fry Crawl, which was an ill-fated attempt to zero in on the best french fry in Chicago.  Sadly, the first two places didn't open until late, and the line outside Hot Doug's took about an hour (thank goodness we had warm blankets in the car!)  Still, we did get french fries cooked in duck fat, and had a great time - the right crowd makes everything fun.

Saturday evening we had a few friends over for dinner, and served yet another Squash Win: Butternut Squash Lasagna.  Om, nom, nom.  The only sad thing about it is when you serve it to a group of people, there are no leftovers.  Alas!

Sunday was magnificently lazy.  I played computer games while Rick played Warhammer, I took a long nap, did some reading, and we watched a bit of West Wing.  Delightful!

They are lovely things. They are still french fries, mind you - they don't have a unique taste or anything like that - but they are very, very good french fries.

Mike and I tried the 'triple-truffle fries' over at Frank N Dawgs, and we liked them a bit better than the duckfat ones.. also, FND didn't have the line-around-the-block that Hot Doug's has. Definitely worth trying as far as the encased-meats emporiums in town goes...
