I’m glad I’m not the only one with a weakness for munchkins.
And I’m not even talking about Chelsea Handler this time.
Now that I’ve finally returned to my own apartment, after braving the ridiculous storms that the midwest is currently being pounded with- oh hey, Spring, so nice to see you-, I can finally post pictures!
And not just gratuitous weird ones of myself that further prove that I am, in fact, a weird bastardization of Friends’ Chandler.
I promise that’s the last one.
Anyway, on Saturday I had a nice little lunch with my blogger buddy, Jenn, of Eating Bender.
We hadn’t seen each other since last August, when we met at the Healthy Living Summit. It never ceases to amaze and amuse me how easy it is for food bloggers to dive right into conversation with nary an awkward “uh…so, you come here often?”
Who ever said nerds aren’t smooth??
You can always count on your equally food-obsessed friends to help a sistah out.
I ordered the Apple, Thyme and Brie on a multigrain baguette.
In a city full of Jimmy John’s, Potbelly and Portillos, this sandwich was light! It was layered with apples, fennel, caramelized onions, greens and big slabs of brie.
I tell you what.
Brie may be my first born’s name. Let’s hope it’s a girl.
I kid. We all know my first born’s name is going to be Thor, regardless of gender. (And regardless of whether the movie tanks)
Considering that Hannah’s Bretzel is not only really good, but also has inventive sandwich creations (the Sergio’s Special was also calling to me), is as organic and local as possible and has a die-hard fan in my friend, Jenn, I’ll be back.
Nothing like good food with good company. Blog nerds unite! Thanks for the sandwich suggestion, Jenn!
(Incidentally, if you’re in the Chicago area and also like to hang out with fellow bloggers, let me know- I’m trying to put together a possible blogger brunch/cocktail hour/potluck.)
