Five little things I loved this week:

Happy 4th!

The 4th of July is here and while we don’t have grandiose plans, it’s always a special day in my heart. It reminds me of the day 15 years ago that I met my husband in Chicago, and gazed at fireworks over Lake Michigan from our perch at Buckingham Fountain. I would love to tap that past me on the shoulder and whisper in her ear of all the adventures she has ahead of her. As for today, well, I’m still finalizing our menu, but there have been requests for turkey burgers, and my daughter has a few recipes up her sleeve that she would like to give a whirl. There will be some pool time and definitely some relaxing.

Chefs Have Thick Skin

The restaurant business is a brutal one, especially in the age of Yelp. I know for me, the reviews are sometimes purely entertainment, so it was fun to see real chefs read real Yelp reviews while they were at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen:

Happy 4th of July, everyone!!! Have a safe and sparkly holiday weekend!
