A Family Get-together: Gastronomic Bliss
Jennifer, our Colorado niece, came for a visit to Illinois Dec. 27 - Jan. 4. We admire her spunkiness in traveling here especially after she was one of the ones to be stuck in NYC after her school let out, and she was stranded at the airport there for TWO nights! (Remember the huge snowstorm in Denver???) Yet, only a few days later, she once again took to the air to fly here. We had a wonderful time together and had to wrap up her visit with a trip to experience pizza...different than the usual "Chicago-stlye" pizza we usually encounter. Five pizzas of various combinations for just 8 people, plus appetizers and desserts....gastronomic bliss!! Here's the group of cousins at Pizza D.O.C. on W. Lawrence Avenue. We all would highly recommend this expereince...great food and funky ambiance! We love you and will miss you, Jennifer!!!
