So I am going again somewhere, all because I needed to get away this time. I needed a breather. Thought about a few months back, but buying the ticket a month before a fly seems to be on a whim. But I will be in Illinois and Virginia for the months of September. I have tried a lot of things already on my first trip to Illinois a few years back. I have bough out Ghirardellli chocolates and other chocolates I wanted, I have eaten at Culvers, a lot of ice cream, a lot of cheese from Wisconsin, Garret’s, turkey legs, etc. Costco, Walmart, Target, I also went through all of these to find some good stuff I can cook with.
But now I am compiling a list of places I need to go to, and try. Restaurants, markets, specialty stores.
For Virginina, it will be my first time and though I am meeting and being hosted by my good friend Pam, I am excited to go around and discover local cuisine too! 🙂 I need recommendations folks, especially for those who live or have gone to the area. 🙂
