Happy Independence Day from the Windy City! Hope that your day is filled with freedom, family, friends, fireworks, and good ole American favorites.
Since I'm here for the holiday, I figured it was only appropriate to sample a classic: the Chicago dog. This local specialty is practically dragged through the garden. Its an all-beef hot dog served on a poppy seed bun and topped with yellow mustard, onions, sweet pickle relish, tomato slices, pickled sport peppers, a pickle spear, and a dash of celery salt. And it's pretty amazing.
p.s. I'd like to wish a very happy first birthday to the adorable Edward James Beaumont! Wish I could be there to celebrate.
