My weekend is usually when I have a opportinuty to cook something new. Not this past weekend. I spend my weekend at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Convention promoting his web comic Hamster Rage. He had a very successful weekend and sold out of his print book.
The weekend did not go by without some food excitement, though. I had my first ever Hi-Chew. It’s Japan’s #1 selling fruit chew. They are amazing. It is like the everlasting gobstopper of Starburts. Super chewy and super delicious. Even better, the proceeds benefitted Japan’s earthquake victims. Find some today and you won’t be sorry…unless you try the mango flavor.
The other exciting food item of the weekend was that one of the venders at the convention was selling a 98% fat-free pulled turkey sandwich. Oh wow. We definitely ate there more than once. I need to figure out how to make it.
Saturday night between the convention and an event we stopped by a Mexican food joint in the south loop. They had really amazing homemade salsa that tasted like it had chipotle peppers and adobo sauce in it. So tasty. Unfortunately, they also had this hanging in their bathroom:
Here’s Brian hard at work doing some mini paintings which he sold for $5 each:
He is an old school Superman that he did:
And a Dr. Who:
Overall, it was an awesome weekend, but I’m ready to get back into the kitchen.
