Travel – CHI – Chicago Diner Birthday Dinner

I know, my birthday was 2 weeks ago and I’m just now posting about my b-day dinner. This post also proves the point that I need a better food photo camera…because as much as I love my phone, it’s camera is not meant for what I do. Hence item #21 from my 30 things for my 30’s list.

Anyway, The BF and I headed to none other than The Chicago Diner for my birthday dinner. I know you’re shocked. We started out with the Lentil Cakes – yum! Great flavor and the dipping sauce rocked.

The Ravioli was filled with Pumpkin and the sauce was made with Butternut Squash. This dish is why I wanted to go to the Diner for dinner. I love all things pumpkin and this was quite tasty, filling, and just delightful!
