Navy Pier people pics

A mother and child (presumably), waiting at a crosswalk.

Went to Navy Pier with friends while back at home in Chicago. We rode the ferris wheel, saw some sights and I took no-look-through-the-viewfinder candids of people that were out, which I have a lot of fun with. Hope you like ’em.

We went to Navy Pier when we in Chicago over the weekend. Fun was had, plus some pictures were taken. Candid People Pics to follow…

Delicious Haglund house Chicken Tikka Masala


Delicious Haglund house Chicken Tikka Masala

Made chicken tikka masala last night after having it in Chicago over the weekend. I really liked it, and I also really like the fact that it’s supposed to be the quintessentially British dish of the new millennium, even if it’s “Indian.” It kind of reminds me of our “Chinese” General Tso’s Chicken, or of Taco Bell. Bastardizations can be awesome. I based it on the recipe “Chicken Tikka Masala, by Pastor Ryan” from the Pioneer Woman’s site.

Zoo 3: Flutterbies…and kids

One of the really cool things we did at the Brookfield Zoo was to go to their butterfly enclosure. It cost an extra $2 or something, so that kept many of the crowds out. Add to that the fact that the huge swarming school trips weren’t going through there and it made for an oasis amongst the hustle.

Anyways, I got off of my feet for a while and sat on one of the many park benches. Meghan on the other hand, had a lot of fun shooting photos of butterflies and kids. So yeah, these are pretty much all hers.


My favorite of the pictures of kids.

And my Fav butterfly picture.
