Some favorite scenes from the weekend. After days and days, hours and hours of working with few meals and no breaks, it was so nice to have some friends come into town, a few birthdays to celebrate, and several great meals. These photos are all from Saturday’s dinner at MK, one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. As usual, MK did not disappoint. If you go, you *must* get the pomme frites with truffle aioli. Must.
Hope y’all had a great weekend too!
