Since I was not able to fly out of town for my vacation, I have time to visit relatives whom I hardly see during the year. Despite freezing rain and blistery wind, I drove to Gurnee for an hour to meet with Manang Zeny and Christy. The last time I saw them was Easter I believe.
My godson was in the house briefly, who’s so proud to tell me that he’s now working in a corporate setting as a manager. Christy’s two daughters are always so vivacious and full of energy. There’s the artist and big Bieber fan while the athlete is a chatterbox. Not a dull moment with them.
For lunch we drove to Texas Roadhouse in Kenosha, at the border of Wisconsin. Funny but it seems like everyone I know has a hungering for grilled steak as I have been having one every other day. And we were not the only ones because the restaurants we went to were filled with customers.
The restaurant’s atmosphere is very casual and they also offered other Western favorites. Servings were big and reasonable. It was the final Bears game too so the fans in our group got half or three-quarters of their attention glued to the tv. Too bad for the Bears.
Here we go again with Chicago sports teams, until next year!
I think my next dinner out we’ll go for sushi and sashimi for a change.
