is our local beef stand and that’s where I picked up lunch for me and Tony. Now if there is a holy grail (Tony’s words) of the ultimate comfort food, it is the Pizza Puff. I don’t think Tony and I have had one for over 15 years but today seemed like the day to take a walk down memory lane.
And of course, no trip to the beef stand would be complete without a traditional Chicago Style hot dog. A Chicago style hot dog is a dog that is only steamed or boiled never broiled. It’s always an all beef hot dog on a poppy seed bun. It’s topped with mustard, onion (no thanks!), sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices and sport peppers (not for Tony) and a dash of celery salt.
I tried to keep my meal on the healthier side and ordered a grilled chicken breast on a pita with lettuce and cucumbers, and I had 1.5 ounces of Tony’s fries with my habanero ketchup. But then I noticed as they were about to put my chicken breast on the grill, they added a pat of butter to the grill! So my “healthy” lunch comes in at 584 calories, 20 fat and 58 carbs.
Okay kids, afternoon break is over. Come back tonight for Grilled Buffalo Chicken Pizza!
