Back to Hamel
The Concordia University-Chicago Board of Regents wraps up this morning and then Cindi and I will head back to Hamel. We came up a day early because I had orientation starting at 9:30 yesterday morning. So we've had two evenings here in Oak Park, and we enjoyed them immensely. First night we ate here at the Carleton, and last night we enjoyed some Thai cuisine. The waitress asked: "normal or hot?" I said: "Hot." She said: "Hot or Thai hot?" I said: "Thai hot." It was absolutely delicious. And totally low-carb. Just chicken and veggies in a red curry and I skipped the rice. Cindi had a garlicly chicken that was also very good. This morning we headed back up the street and ate breakfast in a little cafe - where the coffee was served in something the size of a soup bowl! I think the fun of an overnight get-away will be a nice augmentation to my thrice annual trip up to River Forest. Pity the next one is in January...
