Was ready to head out to work this morning and found a flat tire on the bike. 'Course, I being me thought that this was a harbinger of a bad day. Then it's rained all afternoon at the office in Evanston and I find myself thankful that I'm not biking in this slop.

Up and down week overall. Started off with a bang Monday with a visit to Kinnikinnick Farm for a dinner prepared by Stephanie Izard and Ryan Poli for Outstanding in the Field. wasn't planning on writing about it, but the combination of the beautiful land and the charm of farm co-owner Susan Cleverdon swayed me. The trip to Kinnikinnick was preceded with a side-trip to New Glarus. By the end of the day I couldn't wait to get out of the car.

Now I'm catching up on final planning for Taste of the Nation Chicago, with procrastination being my greatest enemy again. Not good as hunger messaging chair for the event. Still it looks as though things are rounding into shape.

If you can show up to taste of the Nation, please do so. All proceeds for the event are benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Near North Health Services Corporation and the Illinois Hunger Council.
