in Chicago: clean dishes

And so midnight came and champagne (tinted a shade of rose) filled glasses and chunks of lobster sat precariously on fat scallops.

Thrilling foods, reserved for this one extraordinary evening.

And then you wake up and it’s back to menu planning. Daily bread foods. Polenta with tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms. Field greens and rosemary flatbreads.

A clean plate on the table. Welcome, 2007.
